2010-A Rehashing

2010-the year of the blog.  Ok, maybe i'm the only one calling it that, but since that's when i started mine, and therefore started documenting everything, that's what "the ten" felt like for me.  Let's go on a virtual best of 2010 journey together...hold hands and look both ways.

"Here comes the Sunroom", and quite possibly my favorite post title.  Gotta love a gal who works in a Beatles tune.





Took the Bedroom from boring blah to ahh-Truly a Christmas miracle that we finally painted but no new photo til next year.  Currently the furniture is smooshed in the middle of the room and walls need one more coat...not exactly the grand reveal i'm going for.






Added a  Big a$$ garage that i had to pretty up quick and cheap...




Began work on the basement renovation, which i am happy to report is looking more and more like usable space every day.



Shared why i can't paint my kitchen white, in haiku form, no less...



Found a newfound love for thrifting and craftiness...



And professed my undying affection for this little gray one.


Next year promises a finished basement-lordy, i hope so-a bathroom revamp, continued random musings, and more cat cuteness.  I truly appreciate those of you who have been with me on this journey this year-your encouragement, your comments, your friendship...your ideas that allow me to expand mine...bring it on, 2011. 
I'm joining Rhoda's year end party.

I just LOVE your sunroom. Looks like such a compfy place to sit and relax in the afternoon with a good book and a cup of coffee. :)
Hope you are having a great week!

Alicia said...

LOVING the sunroom. The ceiling is killing me, and if only copy/paste worked in houses. It might also be a little gloomy in these parts, so the idea of a skylight is soooo appealing.

Mikalah said...

Ok, so I know you have been by my blog and I somehow just have never gotten my butt over here to check out your blog! I can't even believe it, I think I have been seriously missing out! =)

I really love what you did in the sunroom, it looks so bright and spacious!

Jen said...

Oh my gosh, look at those room transformations!! The patio though, is by my favorite!! ;-)

Happy Thursday Darling! xo
