Let’s hope 2022 will be the year that Covid takes a hike. Thank you so much for your support this past year. I am so grateful for this journey we have had together. When I launched this blog. I didn’t have any purpose or strategy other than to share my love of interior design and my personal collected style. At the time I didn’t realize there was a large community of like-minded women who wanted both a beautiful home and garden and to be stylish at 50 and beyond. You ladies encouraged me to try and combine the two by providing content we all would find interesting. Last year fashion seemed to be what everyone was interested in, I was worried that design would eventually be forced to take a back seat. I wanted to find common threads to connect the two so I wouldn’t lose either group. I am happy to say I think we accomplished that this year. Your favorite posts were exactly split down the middle, half fashion, and beauty-related and the other half design-oriented. I think we are all learning together that our personal style tells the world who we are. A collected look allows us to show our personalities and define who we are. Collecting, decorative objects, jewelry, vintage items, and treasures create a sense of where we have been and where we are going. The mixing and matching are what make our personal style interesting and unique. Your ability to share your ideas, suggestions, and thoughts is what makes this blog interesting for all of us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this all possible. Let’s take a look at The CHD Posts from 2021 that you Found Most Interesting.
The CHD Posts from 2021 that you Found Most Interesting
This post is one from the monthly Fashion Edit that I do with Jennifer of a Well Styled Life. I am not surprised that it was one of the favorites. Let’s face it many of us have a closet full of black and it is a comfortable color for many of us to fall back on.
This topic has perennially been a favorite. This years version is coming up on the 13th. We have a fabulous line up of guest bloggers lined up.
This post was during the height of the pandemic. I think we all were craving some sort of fashion inspiration, even if it meant sweats!
This post has all the details and the before and afters. We transformed our backyard from a broken concrete patio to a pretty backyard oasis.
The collaboration that I do with Annie @mostloveythings and Mary Ann @classiccasualhome on Sunday is always popular with our readers. We share little tidbits that we found interesting throughout the week.I think this was a popular post because many of you were wondering if you could make premade linen curtains look okay. The answer is yes! I used them in almost every room in this house.
As you all know I am no makeup aficionado. I revert to the experts. This post is filled with helpful advice.
I used my former kitchen as my lab and shared my tips for styling it.
This post has all the deets on what we did to make our Spanish Revival Living Room more practical while retaining its charm.
This post was another post from Jennifer from a Well Styled Life and (moi’s) monthly fashion edit. Again, we all have black and white in our wardrobe so this one clicked the boxes as well.
This one did surprise me a bit. From what I understand I did this post at just the right time. It was #1 on Google (that never happens to me). Apparently, it was just one of those lucky times when the time is right and google loves you.
