10 Top Viewed Posts of 2013

Hello, DearOnes.
I'm seeing so many of you posting about your top viewed posts of the year
so I'm going to join in the fun.
Do you ever look at your stats and see how many folks actually view your posts opposed to just those
who comment? If you haven't, you should as it will probably surprise you. I have loads more who just peep at my posts and don't comment. I do that sometimes, but I really do try to comment if I take the time to read your posts.

First I'll say, some of my topped viewed posts were about my little Mother and her passing away.
How I appreciated all of the views and comments but I'm not going to include those posts,
 just the fun ones! :)

Okie, dokie pokie, here we go!

This was my top viewed post of 2013 with only 37 comments but 3,156 views:
This was about my little grand daughter, Carter:

2. A Little Post with 49 comments and 1220 views:

10. A Tilda Love Story at 62 comments and 684 views:

Well, there you have my top 10 posts of the year. This was really lots of fun and interesting to see which of my posts were most viewed. I guess it's a split between decorating and sewing/crafting. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I'm so looking forward to blogging with you in the new year!

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Top Of The World

Such a feelin's comin' over me

There is wonder in most everything I see

Not a cloud in the sky

Got the sun in my eyes

And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be

Is now coming true especially for me

And the reason is clear

It's because you are here

You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name

And it's tellin' me that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze

There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through I hope that I will find

That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me

All I need will be mine if you are here

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world
~ sung by The Carpenters

  7. I have enjoyed all of your posts through the year Shelia. I am looking forward to visiting here all of 2014. Have a Happy New Year!

  8. Thank you for taking us back to your gorgeous posts sweet lady. Although you had a sad year with the loss of your sweet mother...I've been thinking of you lately as was mother's 84th. b'day the 27th. I can't imagine her not around!
    Happy new year along with the gorgeous Little Carter, she's the best!

  9. I'm noticing a Tilda theme..... :-)

  10. As you know I have only been following you for a little while, so it was lovely to see some of your past posts! I had no idea that we shared a love of pyrex! I will look forward to seeing more in 2014! xx

  11. Oh Shelia, I loved all your posts - they were wonderful and I look forward to 2014 posts.
    Have a very Happy New Year.

  12. Many blessings to you! Looks like you had a super year with blogging. Your lil granddaughter is soooooo cute. It seems like yesterday that she was just born. Call me slow poke d, but there are time warps in my thinking. Think it's from getting older.
    God bless and may 2014 be an adventure,

  13. It is fun to look back on our blogging year and see what appealed to others. I just might do this myself.

  14. Hi Shelia,

    I remember most of these posts, although I'm not sure if I commented on all of them. I definitely remember the one about your hutch because my MIL has some of those Pyrex Fire King bowls. I just love, love all the Tilda dolls you made, and I did read the story about your daughter and her family and the Tilda dolls you made for each of them. Your Christmas mantel is lovely and so is your sunroom.

    Thank you for sharing with us, Shelia. Visiting from Seasonal Sundays; I hope you have a great week and a Happy New Year!

    Warm Hugs,


  15. Can't wait to see what you come up with next year. Happy New Year, Ginger

  18. So many great posts and projects, and I hope to visit you more in the New Year. Hugs and have a great New Year.:)

  19. Hello Sheila,

    I love this idea, but since I never--no, never--check my statistics, I have no idea which post brought the most interest.

    I enjoyed reviewing the year with you. Your Carter is precious. And, I am so sorry that your mom is no longer with you, but I'm sure you're rejoicing that you'll be with her eternally.

    Thanks for stopping by. Have a Happy 2014.

  20. All wonderful posts Sheila, missed some of them, but glad that I saw most of them too! CHEERS to 2014!
