The year is nearing its end and of course it is time to look back at what 2012 brought to No. 40. I cannot believe that the year is almost over but I am looking forward to what lies ahead in 2013. The days between Christmas and New Years are always a good time to look back and reflect the passing year. My overall year was good, we accomplished lots of things around the house, also had our 2nd anniversary of home ownership, I acquired a new skill (upholstery), got a new camera and now can't go anywhere without it. We also had fun vacations, great times with friends and many more fun adventures and experiences. Although in the summer I had a little health scare but further tests revealed that the findings luckily were nothing to worry about. I never wrote about it on the blog, I didn't even tell people around me until after I got the test results back because I didn't want anybody to worry. Yup, that's just so typical me...
Lovely Ricarda from 23qm Stil asked her readers again to share their highlights from the year and like last year I wanted to participate. You can find all other participants of 12 aus 2012 on her blog or on her Pinterest board. If you click on the twelve photos I selected from the year here on my little blog you will be directed to the original post.
How would you describe your 2012? What were the highlights/low points?
Have a great weekend! I'll see you again on Monday for the last weekly recap of this year...
Last years Christmas present from my parents finally found its place
in our entry vestibule.
I spray painted an old candelabra neon pink and my neon obsession
was brought back from the eighties.
Took my very first upholstery class and I won the fight woman vs chair
after nine rounds. This is the result.
April marked our two year anniversary of buying our house, I celebrated
with some before and after shots of the kitchen.
And some photos of the living room, dining room and the exterior.
Attended the wedding of friends in California and took a road trip after.
Hiking Bryce Canyon was breathtaking.
A cat with her five kittens moved into our back yard and I tried adopting two of them
but unfortunately they moved again when they figured out my "evil" plan.
Used carpet samples from work to create a mosaic floor for our entry vestibule.
Now I just need to finish the door (missing on photo)...
Attended my very first estate sale and came home with these beauties.
Saw this doggie rescue the day after Sandy hit.
I can't believe two months passed since then already...
I made a birdfeeder out of an old glass lampshade and pink rope.
We had the chance to walk along an undeveloped part of the Highline.
