Sherry I just love seeing all of your amazing projects! Some of them I never saw the first time around so I will have to go back to get the full experience. 🙂 You have such an amazing way with everything you get ahold of and I have gotten so much inspiration from you. Actually, your dining room wall with the blue and white plates made me realize I could do something similar in my family room so that is one of my first projects for the new year! Thanks again for so warmly welcoming me into the blogging community!

You did a lot this year, Sherry! I love them all, but your Ballard inspired wall plaque is one of my favorites!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style December 29, 2010 - 2:41 am

Sherry, what great projects. I believe I missed the chair one. I love it. Thanks so much for joining this week!

You are always such an inspiration and I really enjoyed looking back at your accomplishments for 2010.

I'm having a lot of trouble with Windows Live Writer and have had to delete it from my computer so I'm not able to join the party. I didn't do much in 2010 but wanted to "play" along anyway.

Happy New Year!

Love the chair!!

How Beautiful Sherrie, I haven't seen your chair re do, it's fantastic! We've been wanting to do a chair with the burlap, but just havn't found the time. I love what you did, the cushion looks soft. Love the buffet too, very pretty even the before is amazing. Well done, so glad you shared, tami

Hi Sherry~ Wow, I absolutely love your favorite picks!! The mirror- the chair- the sideboard-the certificate- all just gorgeous! I missed a few of those but will have to go check them out! You are a great inspiration! Happy to have met you this year! 🙂

I'm glad you pointed these things out since I've only been reading your blog a few months. Nice to see some of your older posts. Even though you swore you've never sew covers for chairs again, I love the ones you did. And if it makes you feel better, every person who's ever sewed has felt that way at least once when working on a project!

Hope you have a wonderful 2011.

Linda (Nina's Nest) December 29, 2010 - 12:19 pm

Hi Sherry, not sure if my comment posted, but I love your projects, especially the French birth certificate – beautiful! Linda
