Cindy at My Romantic Home
is hosting a Year in Review party to give us all a chance to post some of our favorite pictures from posts in 2009.

Below are my favorite photos and experiences from this past year.

Favorite sewing project:
After thinking about it for 10 years, I finally made cushions for our eight dining room chairs.

Favorite home improvement project:
Removing the entry hall closet to open up the dining room
Favorite Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday photos:
Favorite Season in Colorado:

Favorite New Experience in 2009:
A helicopter ride over our town.

Favorite outing with the grandchildren:
A day trip to Bishop's Castle

Pure fantasy without the glitz!

Favorite people watching experience:
Attending the Antique Roadshow in Denver

Favorite antique finds:
Additions to my brown transferware collection, thrift-store linens, and antique apothecary jars.

Favorite new shopping mecca:
A farm equipment salvage yard

It has been a great blogging year for me, as I have met so many wonderful bloggers online. Plus, what fun it was to meet Mary of
Mary's Meanderings and Chari of Happy to Design in person. I've truly been blessed by the blogging experience. Thanks to everyone!

Don't forget to stop by Cindy's blog
to check out the other participants in today's party.
