Better Late Than Never Top Five!

Last week, myself and four other Fabulous Bloggerettes hosted the Christmas Inspirations edition of our “Better Late Than Never” series.

What a grand success it was and we so appreciate everyone who joined in the Blog Hop, or stopped by to visit the Blogs that participated.

There were so many entries, and I am pretty sure I lost some much needed sleep, staying up way too late visiting all of these blogs and checking out their projects.

It was tough, but we managed to narrow down the 200 entries to five.  FIVE!  Do you know how hard that was?  :)

In no certain order, here are the Top Five:

Sweet Becca at Adventures in Decorating shared 
her Sitting Room.  Wait until you see her 
beautiful tree!  It overfloweth with charm. 

Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is
shared this Amazing Tree with a nautical theme.
Just spectacular! Love all the fishing lures.

The gorgeous Kelly at The Lily Pad Cottage
(one of my newest fave blogs)  shared this
extraordinary chalkboard art.  I have seen a lot of these on Pinterest and this circle design is one of my faves.

Mother and daughter duo Kyra and Jocelyn from Caramel Potatoes shared this fabulous recipe for Sparkling Cranberry Cups.  I have these on my menu for Christmas Eve. 

Sweet Pat at Back Porch Musings shared her gorgeous Woodland Mantel.  She had me at the pheasant feathers.  :)

Thanks again to EVERYONE who participated, and a special shout out to all the FAB ladies who co-hosted with me:

As a group, we voted on the overall fave, and the
winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to use
in my online shop Farmhouse Decor.
(formerly details!)

The winner is:

Kelly with The Lily Pad Cottage and her

Congrats, Kelly!
I will be in contact to work out the details
of your Gift Certificate!

Oh and one more thing…I have a silly favor to ask.
My 2012 end-of-year goal was to reach 1000
Google Friend Connect Followers.
If you are not already a Follower, and would consider becoming one – I would be sooooo
appreciative.  I am so close.  :(

    I so appreciate having the lodge mantel included with these fabulous posts, Barb! Thanks to you and your fellow hosts and also to all visitors at the Back Porch.

    I am leaving the mantel as it is, through winter. It just seems to fit.

    Merry Christmas!
