Home Sweet Home #48

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I truly am so humbled by the recap post last week.  Some truly, amazingly, talented individuals out there.  

January is a time to reflect and plan for the coming year.  I have been working on my goals for this blog in 2012.  I thought while I was sorting that out I would try my hand at making these burlap roses.  So, I created this little wreath.  I got my instructions on how to make the roses here.   Although my roses don't look like any of these.  I think I am a little intimidated by these year end post, they are really awesome.

Here are the year end posts I would like to highlight from last week.

Kristine at Lakeshore Cottage Living has moved into this home in 2011 and did a recap post with all of her remodeling.  It is such a beautiful home, I love the finishes she picked out so much I couldn't just highlight it with one picture.  
Andrea at the  Opulent Cottage also had a recap post showing off the way she framed out this builder-grade mirror with moulding and medallions.  She had me with the trays and towels on display also!  Love this.

Cindy at Beaux R'eves  created a really nice New Year's tablescape.

Jill at Feathers & Flight created another New Year's tablescape called "Time to Remember."

And then, the recap post that was so amazing was by Rene at Miss Gracie's House.
Rene not only reflects on vintage decor, white, and  her daughter's vintage themed wedding.  She let us in and shared life with us such a beautiful way.   

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!  It is awesome to have you here!

Your wreath is so pretty did a great job on your burlap roses too...they are beautiful :) I'd love to learn to make those. I've been setting some new goals for this year too, and making a list every new day of all the things that want to really does motivate me and keep me on track and has kept me from forgetting what I want to set out to accomplish each day and each new week...I want to do more crafts this year and am having fun with it so far...looks like you have been too with your new wreath :)
Loved seeing the features...I'm so lovin' that white shelf that's filled with vintage treasures.
Thanks for hosting!
Big hugs,
