2012 YEAR ONE + MY FAVORITE POSTS

I WAS FEATURED AT:

Featured at Time For You
Atir Inspired Decor is one year old today!  I can not believe it!
I have learned so much from many wonderful ladies out there and I also, know I have so much more to learn but stick with me I'll get there~
It has been so much fun looking back at the year and I see how much I have grown in my posts & what and how I share with you.
Here are my favorite posts from this past year I hope you enjoy looking at them again~
These are my favorite lamps, I bought these at Goodwill and I am so glad I brought them home they were originally whiteish they went through many transformations first silver, gold, cream and finally brown!
Here is my trash gone pretty post, where I show you how I changed this old bakers rack  into a pretty little cubby to house my trash can which is normally just plain & not very attractive.  Not any longer~
My beautiful mothers maiden name means swan. I have a love of swans because of it, these are part of my collection.  They once were clear glass & in this post I show you my addiction to "leafing" I copper leafed these~
Imagine these orange & brown.  I used a Clorox bleach pen to change the color of these pretty flocked cushions which I purchased at my favorite thrift store new & still in their original package for $2.00 each.  I was pleasantly surprised when they turned out green~
I am very proud of this Family Crest that I designed.  It includes my husbands monogram & a symbol from his fathers family crest as well as from his mothers, my fathers crest & mothers too.  It is my dream to design these for other people since they have so much meaning and they include both sides of the family~

This was my fall mantle. It was so pretty I  was really hesitant about removing it but of course I am glad that I finally did because my Christmas mantle was prettier~

Here is the platter turned chalk board I love all the curves on this platter, when I purchased it after Christmas several years ago it was chippy & scratched & now it is so pretty & sits on our bar~
In this post I show you that I hand painted 2 of these rugs & they are still holding up awesome especially since I sprayed them with vinegar (I did not mention that on this post) to help set them & keep them from fading & bleeding~

Awh...Our best work yet!  My husband & I ripped up the carpet & laid down  unfinished wood treads that we stained, bull nosed & painted ourselves. SO much work but SO worth it~
My vintage stool re-do.  I sanded re upholstered & glued this now beauty in one day.  I am so happy how it turned out & we now use it everyday when I cook the angels will sit & watch me or keep me company~

And finally this is my Christmas tree collection that I have collected through out the years, what makes it so special is that my beautiful mommy also collected Christmas trees with me.  I wish I could have some of hers but my father won't let them go~

Thank you, so much for sticking with me through out this year of growth it has been a grand pleasure meeting & making some very special bonds with some of my followers.  I will never forget my very first followers I was thrilled beyond belief and as it grew my heart grew with it, but I  must say I was praying that I would have had at least 100 followers by my first year.  As you can see I don't but the followers I do have I appreciate every singe one of you & I thank you from the bottom of my blogging heart.  Stick with me I know I will only improve & if any of you have ideas, suggestions or comments please let me know I want to post things that people will be drawn to read & see~
