Time for the year 2010 in review!
I've never done this on my blog before, but I've seen lots of you doing it and I think it's a fun idea. So here we go!

Favorite Thrift Store Finds:
I still can't believe I found this adorable and very clean recliner at Goodwill! I added the fabric to the seat to make it even cuter!Another great Goodwill find, this lovely brown and white transferware bowl! It's a perfect place to show off my vintage buttons and rhinestones!This sweet little cream pitcher was a fun thrift store find, too! Nothing big, but I love it!

Favorite Antique Mall Finds:I have been searching for an old door forever and I was so lucky to find this fabulous one in my very favorite color!I adore floral barkcloth fabric, so this was a very happy find! The colors are so cheerful! It will be perfect for my spring decorating!
This beautiful McCoy vase was a steal! All because of a barely noticeable repair.I adore this charming quilt! It has the prettiest colors and patterns!And other thing I'd been searching a long time for, white suitcases! They are such a cute little size, perfect for tabletop displays, closed for lifts or open to display my favorite treasures!
And this great vintage clock! They are such a fun thing to collect!

Favorite creation:This was an easy pick as my favorite because it's my only creation of 2010! I do love it, though! I'm hoping to find more time for creating in this new year because it's so fun and such a stress reliever.
I want to thank you all for leaving such kind and supportive comments here on my blog this year! And thank you all for the inspiration you share on your blogs! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, filled with lots of time with family and friends, lots of fun hunting for vintage treasures and plenty of time for creating!!!
Michelle xoxo
