Top 12 Posts of 2012

Can it seriously be 2013 already?  Time has been flying by lately, so although I had good intentions, I’m a little late with my Top 12.  But here they are anyway - the top posts from the last 12 months!  I based the list on page views, with the most viewed post at #1.  
12. Antibiotics and Farm Animals: My Fears Put to Rest...  I’m kind of disappointed that more of my farm related posts didn’t make the top 12, but I’m glad you all read this one.  There’s a lot of misinformation out there, and hopefully I can clear up some things for you.old rusty "prevent disease" sign
11. Our Multipurpose Dining Room  So y’all love my dining room?  I loved it like this, too.  Then, it got demolished (like, literally) when we had a wall removed, and it’s not quite back together yet.  I moved those bookcases upstairs to Adam’s room and am on the hunt for a new set with a bit more character.  Matching bookcases are hard to find, though!

10. Storage Solution: Clean Laundry Closet  This still works wonderfully for me, although I’ve been told that I’m “weird” because I don’t fold my laundry.  That’s weird?  That’s just the tip of the iceberg. :)

9.  Knock Off Pouf Ah yes, my feet are resting on this beautiful leather “pouf” as I type.  It’s still hanging in there, looking as good as the day I spray painted it.  And I’ve seen a couple similar ones at resale shops recently.  So go, make yo’self a pouf!

7.  The Boys’ Shared Room I have no clue why you all loved this post so much.  You should know, though, that they are no longer sharing a room and this room may undergo some changes soon!  I’ll keep you updated!

6.  Taking a Risk with Turquoise  Still loving these chairs!  Got a great picture of my friends’ husbands sitting in them at New Year’s.  They looked really tough and manly in my vintage turquoise wingbacks. :)

5.  Vintage Primary Nursery Mood Board Oh, Baby Hayden, I miss you.  Hayden is my friend from work’s baby.  And since I don’t work anymore, and my friend lives the opposite direction from work than I do, I haven’t seen Hayden, or his sister, or his momma in several months.  It’s still a cute nursery design, though!

3.  A Child Friendly Family Room  I can totally see why this guest post from Crystal at The Weekend Homemaker was a top post.  Who wouldn’t love this sweet room?!?!?

2.  Ground Turkey Tuesday: 10 ways to use it!  Mmm, yummm, ground turkey.

So…which post was your favorite?  If I based this list on comments, instead of page views, it would probably be quite different, but apparently the interweb loves my home d├ęcor posts.  So this year, I guess I’ll give the people what they want!  With some major house projects wrapping up, that shouldn’t be too hard.

Would you like to comment?

  1. Great collection of your hard work, Katie! I was surprised what made my top 12 too. Best wishes for 2013!

  2. All wonderful! I absolutely hate folding laundry. I often leave it in the dryer until my husband pulls it out and folds it!
