A Year of Ideas! Cheers to my READERS!

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Holiday Season.  As we approach the years end, here 's a look back of some of my favorite posts from 2012. 

Hopefully, I have inspired you with MY IDEAS or you are thinking of contacting  me to give you some ideas for YOUR HOUSE.  Check out my CONTACT tab for details.
C'mon People, let's get YOUR HOUSE organized and decorated on a dime this year!

First up, my most popular post,  "How to embellish a GIRLS ROOM for under $40".  This post was featured on many blogs and I appreciate the "shout outs".
          A how to for lots of ideas to embellish a girls room using things around your house.

I had a blast revamping our LIVING ROOM on a random Saturday..."Hitting it from all angles!"
A $5 bureau inspired the look of our family room.

Do you long for a shiny black FRONT DOOR?  I finally got mine!  And it wasn't rocket science...
                            Our tutorial on how to get a shiny black front door -- No oil paint needed!

My very first post is about the DESK I found on the side of the road.  This desk turned my house upside down and inspired me to start my blog, House by Holly. 
I think my neighbor is finally convinced I am not crazy for making her help me drag this piece home on our morning walk.  Click here for the crazy.

A mini closet turned MUDROOM has kept our family organized.  You gotta work with what ya got people!
                        For lots of ideas for working with a small closet and cramming it all in.

What does a mother of two do for fun?

You'll have to read my hilarious adventure in thrifting with two kids and a very small car to check out this lamp redo. 

A LITTLE BOYS room fit for a Prince, or a Sailor!
Also a "feature favorite". My sons nautical inspired room has so many ideas on inexpensive ideas to keep your little man ENTERTAINED and ORGANIZED.

We all know the KITCHEN is where the heart of your home is.  
Mine has a Pottery Barn inspired chandelier for a fraction of the cost. 

Never underestimate the power of SPRAY PAINT!  
Nothing is safe from my "Spray Painting Season".   Too many subjects to count!  Including a coo coo clock, lamps and some terra cotta finials.  Truly, I have spray painted just about anything.

And last, but certainly not least.  I have showed you how to make at least 25 NECKLACES using the jewelry you already have in your jewelry boxes.  
This ain't your Grandmas pearls!
My DIY jewlery is an eye opener to get the look for less!

2012 was a great year for me. I took a leap of faith and started my blog, House by Holly.  If you would have told me 2 years ago that I would have a blog with over 40, 000 hits in the first year, I would have said, "Dude, whatever..."

So THANK YOU to my readers!!!  

I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring. Keep your eyes peeled for that little beach house we bought in September, it's going to be so much fun to decorate.  And do I have some great ideas!
