Top Ten Posts of 2013

Have you noticed all the Top Ten Blog Posts of 2013 being shared in the blogging world the past few days? I've been enjoying them immensely. It's fun to take a look back and see what's been popular with other readers, and I've even found a few posts here and there I missed the first time around. When I finally figured out where Blogger keeps my blog's numbers, of course I wanted to share too!

Top Ten Most Popular Posts of 2013




I hope you enjoyed taking a look back at my most popular posts of 2013 with me. I loved doing all of them, and I'm happy to have my blog as a record, not just of my top ten, but of all the fun projects I accomplished in 2013.

 I have a craft room full of new projects waiting for me, along with a few rooms in our old cottage to redecorate in the new year. This spring we'll also be continuing the renovation of our urban garden. I can hardly wait to get started working on everything and sharing with you!

Thanks so much for joining me on the journey!

  3. Laural - your 2013 was amazing! Love all of your talent and creativity! Love your craft room and that potting bench!! Here's to a fun 2014!

  4. Great job! I love the kitchen, the craft room, and the bench!

  5. The kitchen remodel was definitely your big 2013 project. I love the cake stand and I definitely remember when you did your potting table. I made one I was so proud of and posted it about the same time as yours. Mine was nowhere near as good as yours.

    Happy New Year

  6. Love revisiting all these projects! What a great year 2014 was for inspiration!

    Happy New Year!!

  7. No wonder they were tops! Happy New Year from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  8. Hi Laurel, I'm so enjoying all the recaps from the blogs as well. Can I ask a question about your galvanized 3-tier kitchen holder? What glue did you use for the dowels and caps and how is it holding up? Just love your ideas......thanks for a great year.

  9. Laurel, Happy New Year to you and your family! Looking forward to all your wonderful inspiring ideas in 2014!!

  10. All great projects Laurel. My favorite is that pedestal. Happy New Year dear friend!!


  11. He, Laurel! Happy new year! Thanks for stopping by the blog tonight. :) I love all your projects. You've had a pretty big year with the craft room, the kitchen, and the bathroom make-over. Have a wonderful new year my friend!! ~ Jamie

  12. I really enjoyed looking through your Top Ten, Laurel. Having just found your post recently, I hadn't seen all these projects. Love that console redo. Wow! Amazing transformation. Your Craft Room is so inviting and pretty, not to mention functional. I bet you love to work there. The potting bench, the rustic pedestal. . .everything is great. Of course, I love your kitchen remodel and would be so pleased if you would come over and link it up at my blog party Every Room In The House. This month we're partying in The Kitchen, and your kitchen would be a terrific addition. Here's the link: I hope you'll come! ~ Hugs, Nancy

  13. Yep, I remember them all fondly! My favorite? probably the DIY rustic pedestal.

    I look forward to seeing what you have to offer in 2014 Laurel!

    Happy New Year!


  14. My fave is still that kitchen -- I can't stop drooling! Happy New Year my friend and I'm looking forward to seeing all the creativity you cook up in 2014!
