Review of 2012

Hi friends! From visiting all your blogs I see you all had a wonderful Christmas, so glad, ours was great too and yesterday we had another one because Michael and Corrie came home from Annapolis. Needless to say I’m all Christmased out. The decorations are all still up and will be until after the New Year.
I just wanted you to know that I haven’t been on here to post because my hubby bought me a new lap top for Christmas, it’s Window’s 8 and I’m totally lost with it. I love the speed of it which is wonderful but learning the different ways to do things is daunting to a woman of my age. So I don’t know if I’ll keep it or not, I like to use Live Writer to post to my blog but putting it on the new lap top they want my password and ID that I just can’t remember…I know… stupid not write it down :) Does anyone have windows 8? Any tips or suggestions? I’m using my older one for now!
Now on to my most viewed posts okay?
Seemed everyone really liked when I used some AS chalkpaint on my diningroom table legs that I did in French Linen. You can read about that post here.

Loved looking back at your posts from 2012. Hope you can figure out Windows 8 on your new laptop. Wish I could help, but I don't know anything about it.
Got all the pictures taken of my new kitchen, but we still need to get the shelves up that holds my white pitcher collection. Hubby just purchased the wood for that yesterday and he hopes to get them up in the next day or so. The kitchen reveal will be coming real soon.

I'm loving your cabinets painted.

Love seeing snippets of your home as it has evolved in it's new black and white colorscheme. I do not have Windows 8, so I'm not able to give you any tips. But hey.....a new laptop for Christmas isn't too shabby! I'm not as technilogically smart as my husband, so he always explains things to me. Maybe you can get some info off the internet about it. I'm sure it's there. Maybe even You Tube. You would be surprised what "lessons" are on there. My sons both use it to help figure things out. I even used it once to learn more about Blogger when I first started.
