Cheers to the Most Blissful Posts of 2011!

Well, Friends, it's been a wonderful year.
It's had its fair share of ups and downs but overall I know I have so much to be thankful for!
With that said, I am so ready for 2012. I have a really, really good feeling about this coming year. For starters it's an even year (and for all those who know me and my slightly ocd-ways at times, I like things even!)

While I don't like dwelling on the past, especially when I am so optimistic about the future year, I do want to share with you a little recap of some of our (yours collectively) favorite posts from the past year. These are wonderful but you have my promise that 2012s posts will be even better!

CHEERS to the top 5 posts of 2011 and to all things BLISSFUL in 2012!

Four Christmases!

I can never pick just one "Favorite Christmas house" -- who could?
So, from South Carolina's coast to Beaufort, to Houston, and back to the South Carolina coast - here's just four of my favorites courtesy of Southern Living!

 This fabulous beach cottage is the perfect example of tailoring seasonal decor to fit your lifestyle! 
Surf and Sand meet festive decor in this fabulous home!

Absolutely love the mantel decorations here! 
Use indigenous, non-store bought accents from your backyard!

 Love the suggestion of putting small seasonal trees in silver containers for a festive touch that will last beyond December!

This Beaufort home is for more traditional of heart yet still oozing with warmth and and cheer!

 The contrast of the dark woods in the home with the white walls is the perfect backdrop for the greens and reds of Christmas!

Don't forget to decorate the kitchen, too!

This Houston home is a white winter wonderland filled with seasonal touches throughout
 Love the wreaths above the Palladium Doors

 Pretty boxwood garden with gold ribbon woven throughout

 Gingerbread houses are always a fun conversation piece

 Christmas in the master bedroom

Tabletop tree in the child's bedroom - adorable!

This Palmetto Bluff beach cottage is filled with just the right amount of simple yet elegant holiday cheer - free to stress and filled with joy!

 The porch of this home is an extension of the living room so how fun and different that the tree is out on the porch - love it!

 Love the square wreath hung above the fireplace with care

Again, festive cheer is crucial in the kitchen as well!
