My blog site was set up by our oldest son in 2007.  Where does the time go?  It’s been a fun ride and a learning curve I’m happy for.  GHP is published on WordPress and they send a report card for the site each December.  It’s fun reading their summary, and always a little surprising on which posts drew the most interest.

My all time top 5 posts continue to be posts from 2014 and earlier.  I believe the reason could be I’ve lately felt as though I’ve posted all that I can  on topics related to gardening, home decor and entertaining/throwing a party.

I’m fighting this lethargy, and hope to pick up my once-a-week schedule again in 2016.  I need to think outside the box. 🙂

The stories that continue to lead on my blog site are:

Cozy and other adjectives that describe home – {I’m drawn to smaller spaces, especially those that feel cozy and comfortable}

Garden, Hme and Party: 2015 report card


Were you born in a barn? – {There are some amazing barns that have been converted into beautiful living spaces}

Garden, Home and Party: Born in a barn?


Rooms that enjoy a neutral palate {inspired by my friend’s beautiful home ~ thank you, Glenys for always inspiring us}

Garden, Home and Party: neutral rooms

Adieu Pierre Deux – {I still think of the time spent with a Pierre Deux catalog on my lap, a cup of tea on the table next to my chair and the dreaming that went with that}

Garden, Home and Party: Pierre Deux

Front Yards – {I will definitely revisit this topic in the coming months.  Our drought will require continued ways to conserve water and our lawn will possibly need to go away}

Garden, Home and Party: Front yards

WordPress suggests that I try revisiting these topics.  Maybe I will.  If you have topics that you’d like me to cover, drop me a line.  My dear friend Linda suggested the Adieu Pierre Deux post…thank you, Linda.  Thank you for reading…here’s the report if you’re interested and I’ve provided links to the top 5 posts.

I hope to write on some new topics in the coming weeks.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 190,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 8 days for that many people to see it.
