These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, 2014 Edition

Thanks for indulging me in my walk down Beyond The Picket Fence's 2014 memory lane.  It is good for me to reflect and remind myself what I accomplished this past year.  My final favorite thing from this past year that I am sharing is really 5 projects, completed in one week.  5 projects that I created for my home's front porch.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, 2014 Edition

If you will indulge my walk done Beyond the Picket Fence Memory Lane, or at least my 2014 memories.

This rustic hall tree made from a roadside find was definitely one of my favorites from this past year.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, 2014 Edition

These are a few of my favorite things--you just sang that or are now humming the tune, right?  I know I am, but that is ok, it is from one of my favorite movies.  

Another favorite project from this past year was this reclaimed wood bench.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things 2014 Edition

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and were able to enjoy time with your family and loved ones.  

I really can't believe it has come and gone already.  Time does indeed continue to march on--it is best to join the parade and march with it--rather than let it pass it you by.  

And since we have marched to end of another year, it is time for my annual "Favorite Things" review--where over the next few days I share some of my favorite projects from the past year.  They may not have been the most popular of the year, may not have had the most views, but these are the projects that I most enjoyed creating and sharing this past year.

The first one I am sharing is my scrap wood art.

Half a Dozen Last Minute Ideas

Time is a ticking and my previous "I have it all together attitude" has turned a wee bit to "Oh my, how am I going to get it all done?!"  Regardless of what I do or don't get done, I am enjoying the season and the preparations.  If you need some quick last minute ideas, I thought I'd share a few favorites from the past. 

A quick and easy banner to add a touch of plaid to your decor.
State art that you can create in under 30 minutes.
Toffee that has only 4 ingredients.
Quick sugar scrub that leaves your skin smooth as silk.
Raspberry Vinegar--beautiful to give and delicious on a salad.
Make a door knob coat hook for a favorite friend.

12 Days of Christmas Round-Up

Yeehaw, it's a round-up!  A round-up of the ideas I shared this year for the 12 Days of Christmas.  As I mentioned several times, I changed up all my decor this year getting rid of the all white Christmas an opting for what I call the spunky lodge look--naturals and wood with bright, fun colors! Here are the links to the individual projects.  Which was your favorite?
