I don't think I've ever shared this, but I have to confess that I'm superstitious about the number thirteen.  Obviously, I dreaded the thought of a whole year of thirteen, but surprisingly, it was a pretty good year. 

 I wanted to share my most viewed posts from 2013.

I had several wonderful and totally humbling things happen to me during the year.  The first was the fabulous opportunity to have my home professionally photographed and featured on Houzz.

I was honored to be invited to style a room in The Design House at The Old Lucketts Store.
Thank you Suzanne and Amy.

I always try to use architectural elements in my garden.  I guess my readers do too based on the number of pageviews.

My brick patio was my warm weather workshop until I found some fabulous Chinoiserie garden furniture and was inspired to style the space.

I'm always on the hunt for interesting empty frames.  Pinterest helped with this post.

I do a lot of repurposing.  My most popular transformation was this old door which became a chalkboard.

Styling book shelves is a favorite of mine.  I had fun shopping my house and filling my latest find.

Gallery walls are my nemesis.  I  guess you all were interested in some suggestions for wall designs too based on the pageviews.

Last, but not least,  I shared my love for urns and trophies.
