Top 3~Most Shocking Posts

…Of THIS BLOG IN 2011~
No. 3
Kitchen wallpaper- Cutlery 008
I used some cool signage to dress up my free backsplash. It was a Farm House Friday post  at Laurie Anne’s Vintage Home . I posted it Thanksgiving week and it received 267 to date…you can read it HERE.
No. 2
 Much to my shock and dismay—but YES!  This is my  second most viewed post for the year of 2011. I have no idea what you have to *google for this post to come up …MAaaYBEeeee  it could have been the NEWBIE PARTY. …but I’m just saying. Is this really what people want to read about?  With only 8 comments… I doubt it.  But still …it makes me laugh to see the numbers climb upward on this one in my stats!  Here is the story of my Entertainment Center Do-Over and Purge
and the No. 1
cutlery pallet
Most popular post for the 2011 year is my Freebie Tin backsplash and pallet cutlery shelf. (before COOL SIGNAGE) …you can read it here.
None of these posts had the most comments.
I had a tie for that catagory:
“When in Drought”…being the most recent post—regarding the drought that has hit Texas so hard this year and the shortage of hay. Yes, I know y’all must be riveted by the topics that get posted here and sitting on the edge of your seats!  LOL…
And back on May 22--  “Please Pray”the most heart felt and generous outpouring of comments I’ve ever received. Prayers for Honey (the Husband) after having a heart attack.  I remember when I wrote this.  I had no way of getting this posted. But I used a computer at the hospital to get the word out. And Pray you did. Thank you all so very much for the thoughts and prayers and for following us through a difficult time. So many of you inquire about him regularly. The heart attack and stroke have taken a toll. He has made such progress and is vastly improved.

God bless you and Thanks for reading~

Well I personally love all your vintage cooking utensils and the way you have them displayed so I can see why that would be so popular. Have a wonderful New Years!!!

Hi! I found your blog by seeing your post over at Rhonda's end of year party. I know some bloggers go only by comments left so I love to find other bloggers that know to look at the "stats" is so much more gratifying to see "page views".

Cool Beans! I had to check them out since I was AWOL this summer/fall. Love all of them - especially the cutlery. Now you've gone and got me wheels spinning again.

I love your cutlery box too.
It's odd what people will chose, isn't it?
I've enjoyed visiting here 2011 and look forward to popping by again in 2012!

I find it fascinating to see which of my posts are most viewed. I think it has to do with google search.

Happy New Year Pat! Ann

It's so nice to see how your little blog has grown. If you are like me, you are amazed that anyone even cares about what you write. But thankfully there are a lot of women around just like us, what a nice surprise, eh? Here's to another great year of blogging.
Hugs, Cindy

Hi Pat,
Thanks for your visit and leaving your comments. I have a bunch of red solo cups left over from Christmas. Too bad you don't live nearby. So glad to know that your husband is doing better. Here's to 2012 being a good year for all of us.
