Sometimes it is valuable to look back and see how far you have come.

I know my blog has gone through several phases over the last two years – and I have been fluffing and organizing for the last 6 months since the redesign.

The last thing I finished yesterday (with the help of Creative Kristi), was my project gallery.

As a result, I ended looking WAY back and remembering some of my first, but favorite projects that I thought I would share with you today.

From my project gallery…

Sheet Music Dress Form

This little post has been my biggest traffic generator from Pinterest – how to make new ornaments look vintage.

On my decorating project page, I looked back at…

This fireplace I painted for a client – please stop by for the before…

A mantel I worked on with my dear friend and Betty.

And a client’s living room makeover – again, worth stopping over for the before.

And, I am sorry – but Christmas is fully on my mind – so here are some project from my Holidays Gallery from Christmas past…

Our Nativity display…

Christmas in our laundry room…

And a favorite, although horribly photographed – a Santa pillow!

I hope you enjoyed stepping in my “way back time machine” today.

You can see all of these project and more on each of my projects, decorating and holidays pages.

And going forward, these pages will contain all of the new posts as well so it will all be grouped together.

Thanks so much for reading!
