Back Through the Years

Welcome everyone! I am most grateful to all of you for your support of my blog. It has been a fun road to travel. Meeting new blogging friends has been the best part. I have learned much through many of your blogs on home design and through that I have carved out my own design “Romantic Farmhouse”.  For almost forty years I decorated my home in the primitive design. When my nest was empty I wanted my new nest to reflect me not the other five family members that lived with me at the time. Since I was single and ready for a change.  I thought that I would show you my little nest through my years of blogging, which will be three years coming up in April. Wow, time goes by so fast! I will be celebrating that with a giveaway so make sure you stop by in April for the details.

2014 in review

Hello dear friends I hope that your Christmas was joyous and full of family and friends. I am taking down Christmas and getting ready for the new year when my yearly report from WordPress came in and I want to share it with you. These are the results of my first 9 months of blogging results. Kind of like having a baby. LOL Thank you dear readers!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

I love it when you leave comments, let me know what you would like to see more of.

Have a very warm New Year! Jo

Thanx to all my dear friends that have helped me along the way!

Painting Pumpkins with Children

Hello, hello everyone! I’m so glad that you have stopped by to see what’s going on at Anne’s Attic – design. I’m sure that many of you have been having a fun time celebrating Fall and doing great Halloween projects. I want to share one that I did with my grandchildren.

We have a tradition to go and pick out their own personal little pumpkin and then to bring it home and paint it anyway they want!

After last years painting party I decided to take the children’s shirts off to spare their mother grief. Acrylic’s really doesn’t come out of clothing very well. The children started out painting cute faces on their pumpkins but then decided that they weren’t getting enough painting time in so they painted their pumpkins their favorite colors. Next year grandma will get them each two pumpkins. They had a ball, I was really surprised that most of the paint was on the pumpkin and not one them! LOL

What kind of traditions do you have in your family? I would love it if you would share your Fall and Halloween traditions with me whether they be with or without pumpkins.

See you soon! Have a great Fall day!

Life is LOVERLY when we are doing what we love!
