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!

Lots More Fall Decor

Thank you for coming! The Fall days have been so beautiful! I hope that you are taking time to get out side and enjoy the beauty of this time of year. I just want to share a few more views of Fall with you, and some great finds.

The Grandchildren and I made it to the Farmers Market near our home in Bountiful. We had so much fun picking out the perfect pumpkin. It’s incredible the colors that they come in now, BLUE, PINK, who would have thought?

Look at this pumpkin, the patina on it is beautiful, the Grand kids thought I crazy for wanting this one.

I also picked up this beautiful Mum which will last all Fall and then I can replant it.

Don’t you just love these Jack Be Little’s in white? They make a statement all their own.

BeFunky_m f tray.jpg

As we move into the house I want to share some of my recent finds and a couple of my creations. This tray is a large picture frame that I painted and lined it with blue fabric, then I turned it over and I use it to corral some of my counter things.

I found this great scale on Etsy, the color and the patina are just perfect for my kitchen!

I found this little scale on Etsy to, isn’t it cute? I did give it a little coat of paint.

Putting them side by side looks so great.

BeFunky_m f lace.jpg

Here is just a cute glass jar with lace, I think it is so pretty to look at.

BeFunky_m f birds.jpg

Here I found a great sugar silver sugar bowl. Some of the parts of it is sorta bluish I’m pretty sure that the silver isn’t as good, but I like the color of it. I found this piece at a thrift store in the area.

BeFunky_m f owl.jpg

This great owl got a new coat of paint. He was green but I like him much better this way.

Thanks to all of you that gave me advice on repainting my vintage picture frames, your advice was great and I will be trying them.

Have a beautiful weekend! Go do something you love with someone you love. Life is LOVERLY!
