I am doing one last review of my posts from 2010.   Last year saw me enter into some serious thrifting and junking.  I also enjoyed tablescaping and photos of my life.  These are some of my favorites from each month.

One of my favorites posts in January was one about my collection of birds
With these three stealing most of your hearts!
(mine too)

February saw Mr ALC and I take a trip to Tennessee and we ended up finding some fun and rusty treasures.  I found this great lantern 
And had a great time just taking photos
I love the colors of this tractor

March and my favorite post was the St Patricks Day Tablescape...It was one of my first tablescapes  and remains one of my favorites
She will be back this year I'm sure!

April saw lots of fun posts but my favorite had to be the get together with some of the Atlanta Bloggers for Tea
It was my first time having High Tea and it was so much fun!  I also got to know some of the ladies better and that was the best part!
It also saw the Azaleas in my yard in glorious bloom

May found me posting a lot!  I must say my favorite post this month was about Mother's Day.  My daughter Sara sent me flowers
Such a sweet surprise!

And my oldest daughter Ashleigh took me to the Home Opener of the WPS (Women's Professional Soccer) Atlanta Beat Soccer team
We had a wonderful time and in fact went to a couple more games together.  I'm sure the 2011 season will see us again.  
June, well you must know that turning the 
was the highlight of this month
I had a count down to the big day June 9th with six giveaways!  It was so much fun to give to you my friends!  You all surprised me with cards and gifts in the mail.  I never knew how much fun getting old could be!  
Mr ALC got me cute Princess cupcakes!

July was a really fun month for me! A big 4th of July party, lots of junkin and enjoying my deck garden.
This was one of my favorite photos taken with my new camera lens from Mr ALC

August can only mean one thing...
Worlds Longest Yard Sale
This trip is a highlight of my year
We always find so many goodies and this time I shopped for one of you!  Can't wait for WLYS 2011~

September's post
"The Bluebird of Happiness"
Is my favorite because I got to share with you the news that I am going to be a Grandma!

This is my beautiful daughter Sara
She is due in April! 

October's highlight was my trip to Texas to celebrate my Mom's 80th Birthday

She had a wonderful surprise when her brother flew in from California to surprise her! 

November was a good month for tablescaping and my favorite was my Thanksgiving table

And finally December and all the Christmas fun
Sweet Charlie under the tree

It's been a wonderful year!

I have never actually known any one who went to the world's longest yard sale! You must tell me more! I want to go so badly but Joe is rightfully scared of what I might buy. You had a lovely year Linda (Grandma).
