Looking Back...Twelve for '12...

Things have been pretty messy around here. 
In my last post I told you I wasn't ready to take down Christmas quite yet. Well, now I am...and I'm almost done.  But you know how that goes...packing, sorting, cleaning...rearranging.  I'm under a big pile here!!  I'll keep on "digging" and show you what I've been up to...but until then, I thought I'd jump on the chance to peek back at the most popular posts here at CwC from 2012...partly because I wanted something to post so I could pop in to say "Hi"...and partly because I was curious too :)

So here goes...

Twelve for '12

Metal Ladder To Hook Rack my son's room.

Old Crate Planters
...out back on the deck.


The Grate Room
...a re-visit tour

Jar Rim Wreath Ornaments

Vintage Headboard Patio Fence
...another from out back.

Out Front on the Porch

Bitty Little Flowers

My version of the...


#2 solution for K-cup storage.  
(Sure wish I could find more of those pans!!)

And last, but far from "least... favorite and most popular post EVER!!  
I still can't believe the views this posts gets to this day.  Kinda fun :)

So anyway that's a look back here at Chipping with Charm.  
A great big thank you to all of you for making 2012 so much fun...can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for 2013.  Now I'd better go finish my cleaning so I can get busy creating again!

Blessings to you and yours!!
