These Are a Few of My Favorite Things and a Surprise Linky Party!!

Hey, I would love to see one or two of  your favorite posts from this past year--so link on up, either to the original post or a new one featuring favorites that you created this past year.  And for my final favorite of the year,  I am cheating and including several projects made from free wood from a swing set my hubby took apart and from a neighbor.
I was able to make so many fun things from it such as:
A potting table,
A beverage cart,
A footstool,
Benches and stepstools,

Coffee tables,

Message Centers,
Sofa tables,

 and toolboxes.
I used it to back old shelves and windows,

and a scrappy mirror!
I still have some bits and pieces so you are bound to see a little more.  And a final favorite link from the past year--I adored how Shizzle Design took this chest and added legs to it--made it a completely different and fresh piece.  Oh, and red is always so right!
Have a safe and blessed New Year's Eve all--thank you for all of your support and love this past year.  I look forward to new things and new blogging adventures in 2012!

Thanks for linking up and for sharing you with us :) !!
Linky Party Rules
1. Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2. Please check and make sure your link works. If it doesn't you can delete it and try again.
3. Please no direct links to sales sites, i.e. ETSY or just a plain ol' commercial site, we are looking for inexpensive ideas we can recreate, thanks!
