“Best of 2013”

I wanted to feature my most popular posts for the year and decided to use those with the most comments.

Everyone shared in my joy when I FINALLY got my bathroom painted blue! (I’ve been talking about it for years! lol)  And 78 of you were nice enough to leave sweet comments on “I’ve been feeling very BLUE”.

The next one with almost as many comments is “I’ve Bragged Too Much GIVEAWAY” because I win a lot and then I brag about it! heehee! (so I had a giveaway, too)

A Book and a Blanket got a lot of comments about HGTV.

I shared a trip to the beach on this post, My Golden Life.

And I show some of my thrift finds in The Unexpected.

I’ll sneak the 6th most popular in, too. We all loved the Lego creations from the NC Arboretum, Some Assembly Required.

Happy New Year to you! I've never gotten 78 comments...I must be doing something wrong or I'm just plain boring. LOL! I hope you had a great holiday and what a great idea to post your most popular! Your bathroom is gorgeous and I love the lego scene too. TTYL!

It's always fun to look over the past year. The bathroom looks great in blue and I must have missed the New Smyrna post so had a look. I grew up visiting this very town often because my grandparents built a winter home there and my aunt not far from them.
Wishing you a fabulous new year of health and happiness Diane. We're counting the days until we leave for Florida, one month isn't long enough but I'll miss my dog too much to stay longer.
Hugs,
Judith

I remember each and every one of those! And I STILL don't know how you get such great luck with winning giveaways, LOL. I know that it is always fun to visit you and see what you've been up to. And I am sure that 2014 will be fun-filled as well!

I'm doing a review myself on Tuesday...I hope. Only I chose my favorite from each month. You are sweeter choosing your readers' favorite! I remember your blue bathroom. Did I tell you that my blue bathroom makes my baby grand shudder? Probably. It's a big story around these parts. Ha!

It seems you always have a lot of comments by the time I arrive so I'm surprised you could pull out these -- I absolutely love your blue bathroom and am so glad you posted it again as I didn't see it the first time. I hear it's good weather down there and I hope you have a very happy new year!

I like the LEGO creations, as my son used to play with LEGOS all the time and make the most interesting things.

My wish for you in the new year is peace and joy, and I'm so glad to have met you in blogland this year. I look forward to many more of your sweet posts.

Love,
~Sheri
