I ran the numbers and the results are in for the best posts of 2022.
Two recipes, four upcycles, and four seasonal decor posts.
You guys are definitely my people. The posts that I enjoy creating the most, seem to be the things that resonate with you, too.
So that settles it.
With 2023 just on the horizon, I’m ready to bring you even more delicious treats, furniture flips, DIY home decor, vintage finds, and home designs.
And if there’s anything else you’d like to see more of, just give me a shout. I aim to please. 😊
And now, here they are—the top 10 blog posts of 2022.
1. How to Paint Picture Frames
My favorite new muse had me needing more photo frames this year.
Way more photo frames.
Because seriously. She’s pretty darn photogenic.
No worries though, because I scrounged up all my old outdated frames and gave them all a pretty (but easy!) makeover.
2. Strawberry Lemon Bars
These dense blondie bars are the perfect combo of sweet and tart.
They are delicious any time of year, but with their pretty pink frosting and specks of luscious red berries, they make a beautiful Valentine’s Day treat, don’t you think?
3. Fall Basket Decorating Ideas
I joined my Pinterest Challenge friends to bring you lots of fall decorating ideas using baskets.
You can see all of the creative ideas here.
4. Layered Peanut Butter Brownies
Chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in heaven, in my opinion, and you guys seemed to agree because this post racked up pageviews all year long.
Probably because they are easy to make, and have such a pretty presentation too.
Oh, and did I mention chocolate and peanut butter?
You can find the recipe here.
5. Vintage Silver Spoon Ornaments
I love upcycles, especially when they involve something vintage.
I tried my hand at some easy DIY metal stamping, and these ornaments turned out precious with my family’s initials on them.

6. Upcycled Serving Tray
This upcycled serving tray was truly a “making something out of nothing” kind of project.
I took a thrift store find and turned it into a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
You can see the full transformation here.
7. Delivery Driver Thank You Snacks [Free Printable]
For several years now I’ve been leaving snacks on my front porch as a way to thank our delivery drivers, who work extra hard during the busy holiday season.
This year I included a free printable. You can still grab yours here, and tuck it away for next year.
8. Patriotic Decorating Ideas
I love seasonal decorating, and this post was another Pinterest Challenge filled with red, white, and blue inspiration.
9. Upcycled Vintage Sewing Machine Drawers
My vintage-loving heart fell in love with these old sewing machine drawers as soon as I saw them in an antique store.
I’m glad you all loved them, too.
A little bit of wax, and some antique hardware and they were looking amazing again.
These are the best kind of makeovers, don’t you think?
10. Vintage Buffet Makeover
This beautiful old buffet waited more than 7 months for her makeover, but the wait was worth it.
Some rich dark gray paint, new stain on top, and some white antiquing wax and she is back in action.
See her full transformation here.
