  1. This post tells me that I found you at the beginning of this year because I remember most of these posts! I remember loving the one showing your gorgeous jadeite collection the most....and still do!

  2. It's hard to pick a favorite because I love 'em all, but it has to be your stained concrete floor. One of these days I'm going to have to give it a try.

  3. It's fun to look back, isn't it? Happy New Year!

  4. They're all memorable and worthy of a second glance. Happy New Year to you, Cecelia!

  5. Love all those vintage bits and pieces!
