I want to start this blog post out today with a big Thank You to all of you who read and follow along here at The Wicker House. I don't know if I would still be blogging after all of these years if it weren't for your sweet comments and friendship.

Today's post is a really heart-happy one for me.  I get to take a look back at last year's blog post and see which ones were my most viewed post. I love passing on the projects and ideas that come to me, and to see that they were well-received makes me smile :)

I am also joining in with a Large group of blogger friends, who are all sharing their top 10 post for the last year. Not only is this fun to see what was trending for the year, but if you happen to be a blogger, or advertiser then this is a great reference to see what kind of post received the most views.
