It Was the Best of Times; It Was the Worst of Times...

I know that at the end of every year (or right at the beginning of the New Year), bloggers write about their top posts for that year.  I thought about doing that but given that I only had 33 posts for 2016 (the ol' blog was a little neglected)...I think they would all fall into the "worst" category!

Sooooo, I decided to do a "The Best and The Worst" of my blog posts.  I've only been blogging for 2 years, so I don't have a lot of "street cred".  The post that was "best" for me, might fall into your "lame crap" category, but that's okay.  I'm good with it! :-)

Now, on to the winners...

Through the Looking Glass...



This has been my top post of all time.  This project was easy and I didn't screw it up.  If you read my blog, you know I am not a craft-project guru and things normally do not turn out very well.  You know, like trying that new recipe and setting the kitchen on fire...that's how craft projects work for me!

In the Bedroom...


I wrote this post to tell about some of the fun things we do in bed, however, I'm not going to elaborate here...you can go back and read the post or use your imagination! :-)

Coffee-Cured Filet Mignon....


Great recipe and absolutely delicious (per the hubster)!  'Nuff said.

The biggest loser of my blogging career was this post...It's All About the Cheese....


No, don't bother to go back and read it...it was a yawner to write and even more of one to read...much too technical for me and it was an early post...long before I found the style I wanted to use for this blog.

On to the honorable mention....The Stool Pigeon...


This was one of my most epic failures in the crafting department...and no one will let me forget...especially when I keep bringing it up! :-)  It. Was. Horrible.  But, I bounced back and worked on another stool project or two that turned out okay.  Don't you just hate that word "stool"?!

I've always heard that if you can't be a good example, then try to be a horrible warning....

  10. I continue to have hopes the stool pigeon has become a proper ottoman. And I continue to have hopes for a stencil project from you.

    1. That stool pigeon is hopefully haunting someone else right now OR someone else was able to give it a new life! I sold it at a yard sale and I never have to look at it again!! :-) Well, except on my blog...LOL

      I have high hopes for me in the stencil project dept as well. I want to save up to get one of the Cricut machines so that I can make my own adhesive stencils. I figure if the stencil is stationary, there is less chance of me screwing it up! :-) Love and hugs Donna!!

    1. Thank you so much Kris. I have a bizarre writing style…I mix my tenses, adverbs and dangling participles (whatever those are :-)). I’m an English teacher’s worst nightmare…LOL I tried writing prim and proper…just didn’t work for me! :-) Love and hugs Kris!!

    1. Awww, Kim, thank you so much! I appreciate it...I do need to work on the photos a little bit though...get some lighting controlled. Inside light kills me and I shoot much better outside, but dragging the bed into the yard is not always an option...LOL Love and hugs!!
