2013, Gone in a Flash!

Hello, all!
I wanted to post one last time for 2013.  

All in all, 2013 was a pretty decent year.

It was the year that I seemed to
 continually disappear from blogland.
Not intentionally mind you,
but it just kept happening.
As a matter of fact,  
I have a few projects that
I still have not shared with you.

I guess I better make "being a better blogger"
one of my New Year's resolutions,
along with that ever present thorn in my side...
"lose weight."

I thought it would be fun to look at my
Top 4 posts of 2013.  
Up until this point,
I really had no idea which ones were the tops.

Number 4:

Number 3:

Number 2:


And now, my most viewed post of 2013.....
.....drum roll please.....

Number 1:

It's always fun to look back, isn't it? 

Ok friends, that's a wrap for 2013. 
If you are going out tonight to celebrate,
 please be safe!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I love that umbrella wreath, too! It's fun to look back, isn't it? I am hoping to put together some highlights of 2013 but it won't be posted til next year! lol!

    Happy New Year, Gina!


  2. Happy, Happy New Year to you sweet G! Oh, not the lose weight... me too. Gah.

    Loved that umbrella project. It was a STUNNER. Really so beautiful Gina.

    Hugs friend ~Shannon

  3. Gina, I need to make the same resolution as you, my blogging has certainly been very sporadic this year! I love your top 4 projects,...couldn't pick a favorite! :) ...all cute! I need to look back to see how you made the super cute yellow shade! Hope you have a wonderful and blessed New Year!

  4. Happy New Year! I cannot wait for this one to be over.


  5. Hi Gina, Yes indeed this year did go by fast! I can hardly believe it's 2014! How and When did that happen?! Your projects are all so beautiful! That umbrella is amazing! So Springy! I am thinking about doing a little redecorating this year and am looking for black & white inspiration. Your table scape made me SO Happy! It's just what I'm looking for! ♥ Have a happy and safe New Year and I'm looking forward to another year of blogging with you!
    PS your resolutions sounds VERY similar to mine : ) wink, wink!

  6. I remember the umbrella wreath....it is so cute....happy New year!

  7. Oh, how I love the umbrella wreath!!! Gonna copy that this year!!!

    I too have fallen by the wayside on the blog, real life got in the way........and it has all changed so much now.

    Wishing you many blessings in the new year........xoxoxo

  8. Happy New Year, Gina. You didn't post as often but what you did post was wonderful. xo Diana

  9. NOne of these posts surprise me as far as being your top four. I was shocked at my top post! So weird!


  10. Hi Gina, Happy New Year!
    Somehow I missed your umbrella post but had seen and pinned the same one on Pinterest. I love how yours turned out. The tulips look so nice!

    It's been fun reading your blog this past year...you always have a very inviting post that just somehow seems to draw you into your delightful home!

  11. I'm pretty sure I pinned that umbrella one. If I didn't, I looked at it and thought how badly I wanted to do it.

    Then, I didn't do it.
    Because I'm lazy, that's why...

    Loved them all, btw. I was another disappearing blogger in 2013. I missed it too much to stay away.
