Well hello there, long time no post, right?  I guess I should begin by saying Happy 2019 since this is my first post of the year!  I hope your new year is off to a great start.  It's been tough to get back in the swing of things after the holidays, but I've been compiling a big list of content to share with you coming up and am ready to get back at it.  But first, today I'm re-entering gently with a wrap up of some favorite posts from 2018, both mine and yours (according to stats!).

It's always so interesting to see which posts are the most popular, and this one was definitely at the top last year!  My sister and I did a mortar wash on our parents' brick fireplace.  We were winging it and learning as we went and I didn't even plan to write a tutorial on it until last minute.  I definitely would have taken better photos and documented more of the process had I known how popular this post would be!  :)

My blog friends and I shared a "My Five Favorites" post once a month, but these were the top three favorite subjects over the year according to reader analytics.  For a full list of all of our MFF posts (36 to choose from!), click here and scroll to the bottom of the post.

  1. This was really fun to see - a trip down memory lane. Also - perfect timing as I was researching acrylic frames just yesterday. I had forgotten you had done a blog about them!

    Thank you for all you do!

  2. So glad you are back!!
    I've missed your posts.

  3. Could you share with me where you purchased the pink oriental inspired rug. I’m looking for something like that for guest room. Thanks.

    1. Hi Bonnie, here's my rug. On sale! :)

  4. New Years Greetings Jen! I have also missed you and was hoping all was fine with you/family. Great news to share! I will be one of four homes on my town's holiday walk this December! I give a lot of credit to you my friend and am thrilled to be a part of this. Just today I used large black/white polka dot wrapping paper to cover the backs of a built in oak bookcase in our front foyer. OMG what a transformation!! Truly enjoy your blog and do my best to emulate you in my decorating!!
