Simply Vintageous revisited

Good ( halfway through the day ) Morning everyone!!!!!
For me?

It's the most laziest day of the year
With my hair a big mess
and with sauce on my dress
I had too much cheer
But now it's the laz - laziest time of the year...........................

John's napping - the house is quiet - somewhat clean - and the whirlwind is over -
I stumbled out of bed at 10.30 this morning in a panic - It's Wednesday - time for
house hunting - and then I thought -NO - no one wants to house hunt today anyway, right?

So instead  I'm going to bore you with my top viewed posts of 2012 - because it's the most
laziest day of the year - which really does mean I'm too lazy to come up with an original post.
Hoping some of you are new enough that these posts will be fresh for you - and for those of you that
have been following for awhile I'm hoping you're feeling too lazy today to care!
( that's a lot of lazy for one post - how many?  don't know - too lazy to go back and check )

These makeovers had almost 10,000 hits



If you missed the post - you can read it HERE

And then there was my bedroom dresser - the post can be found HERE

My Armoire seemed to be a big hit too :)  I still cringe when I look at the before on this one

what a difference a day makes - 24 little can read about this transformation

And the top John says - Suzan says

Using branches for decorating - our conversation
Using tissue pom - poms for decorating - our conversaton
Supercalifragilisticispialidocious - our conversation
Forever Young - our conversation
Baby it's cold outside - our conversation
Stencilling a butcher block -  our conversation

My Menopause post seemed to get a lot of hits - you can read it HERE
And my ARTIST post you can read it here

And that's all I'm going to bore you with today -
Hoping you all had a beautiful Christmas - and that you're feeling LAZY today - and that you're actually ABLE to BE lazy today - you all deserve it
Much love
Many kisses
Tight hugs
( and I'm off to join John for a nap - I've been up a couple of hours after all )

  1. I'm whispering so I don't disturb your nap. It's been great fun reading along with you as you house hunt, turn ugly duckling furniture into swans and let us in on your domestic discussions. You need a bit of rest before you jump into a busy 2013!

  2. I just can't believe the transformation of that buffet! It looks great. I would have walked away from that baby...

    1. thanks so much!
      BTW - Moonstruck was on at least 5 times over the holidays here in Montreal - made me think of you

  3. Wow, what fab transformations. I love how the buffet turned out.

  4. I'm too lazy to even go back and visit your last he said/she said posts...but your furniture makeovers are remarkable. You're the best! xo Diana

  5. Wow! Those were all great makeovers! Love the hutch - I'm trying to get my hubby to agree to letting me paint my 12 year old oak hutch!

  6. Wow that is amazing they all look so beautiful in the after picture. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much for saying so Beth!

  7. Wow. I am glad you re-posted. I miss some of those! The big hutch is just an amazing make over. I am feeling lazy and comfy cozy today too...I had a short burst of energy and started taking Christmas down, but it didn't last long! Visiting your blog in my Pj’s is a lot more fun!! Plus it might get me to re-do a few pieces this year!!!! Happy Holidays!

  8. Oh Suzan, I am ever so glad that I stumbled upon your blog have a wicked sense of humor & I look forward to seeing what you have to share with us every day! Thanks for all the laughs you've given me so far & I look forward to many, many more!!

    1. I'm so happy that you stumbled upon it too Carolyn!
      You're one of my blog sisters of the heart now

  9. Please take a day or two of lounging and keep your energy up, mon ami.

  10. I'm planning to be lazy too and have a retrospective of my year later this week.

    The big hutch is still my favourite makeover.

    Hope you and John have a great slumber! I'm off to get the house ready for the outlaws' Christmas get-together (that's how I call the inlaws. I'll definitely need a nap after that...)

  11. Fantastic makeovers! I'm in love with all of them. Poor ugly armoire is a beauty now!

  12. Thanks Suzan! I enjoyed revisiting your conversations, laughed all over again.
    Have a great weekend!
    Debbie :)

  13. Those ugly ducklings are now swans...great job! Hugs, Penny

  14. Fabulous job on each one! I love them all. The buffet is amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. You rock!!


  15. Amazing makeovers! The hutch is dreamy!

  16. I can't believe the difference in the first piece from wood to white. I have a dresser in our bedroom just screaming for a makeover, but I don't have time to tackle now. I can hardly wait to do it after seeing your great work.

  17. Wow love all of the transformations, especially the buffet. I would love it if you would come by and share your creativity with my friends at:

  18. Your repainting is fabulous - just what I need to get on with too! Would love to have you come post this tomorrow at "Open House".

  19. Oh, I just love all of your makeovers! Being new to your blog and a furniture painter myself I appreciate all the hard work that went in to those pieces. I'm about to tackle an amoire just like yours for my booth in our local antique mall marketplace soon to open! I love it as a linen cabinet! Thanks so much for linking up with us at Dandelion House today! Look forward to more great entries from here in 2012!
    xo Deb
