The end is near and I couldn't be happier. The end of 2012 that is! It has really been a wonderful year for us, but the pace was really overwhelming. I finally have a sense of renewal and feel like I am moving forward in a very positive direction! Those of you who have followed me have heard alot of my trials and tribulations. Now, I am getting back to the things I love. Thrifting, antiquing and sewing. I have a painted project started, and hope to finish it before the weekend. I will definitely start Restyled Sundays back up this weekend, so get your projects ready. I'll be back tomorrow to share my plans for the year. 2012 was a big crash and burn on the restyling front. But, I was able to reach some other big life goals that will enable me to have more time for the joy in life.
I'll see you right here tomorrow. I am not setting resolutions, just goals and desires. Don't go to crazy partying tonight.

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays!
Well, another week of house hunting with my daughter and another offer rejected. I guess there is still a very slim chance on that house, but the owners son through his hat in the ring. Obviously, he should have a chance, but he has to sell his house first, so buy the time they get around to making a decision, months may go by. So, we are looking again. New listings have been slow coming on the market lately, so to say the least, she is getting discouraged. I have been praying for something good to be out there for her. We must keep the faith.
Thanks for all of the great posts last week. You guys have some impressive talent!
Pam from Adventures in Home Improvement found this great copper bucket in not so great condition for $10. She brightened it up and has it in her laundry room to collect wet towels. Pretty spiffy,Pam!
Cyndi from Blue Star Antiques. turned an old buffet with serious issues into a real beauty. One door was missing and she made that work to her advantage. I love this makeover.
Karen from Redoux Interiors made over this kitchen with nothing but paint. What an amazing job!
Angie from Knick of Time Interiors painted this vintage looking sign with CeCe Caldwell paint. She loved how it went on and created a very cute sign!
Now let’s see what you have been up to this week!

In the last six weeks, we moved our daughter out of her house and temporarily into two storerooms and she is staying with us. She and her dog are so fun to have around, but there is a lot more chaos with them here.
We have been actively looking for a house for her, while continuing to try to organize and unload things from our office move and my parents move. I am going to do my best to get back on track with the blog here, I am sure life will eventually get back to normal, whatever that is, haha! I have missed posting, but it is amazing how hard it is to get started again, after you have been gone for a while.
Today, I am sharing this amazing wicker bakers rack that my son just painted for a lady at the antique store.
Brent is 27 with Asperger's Syndrome and has trouble working for someone else. He had worked for me at my office, and when we sold the practice, he was unemployed.
