happy blogversary painted posies!

Holy mama, you guys! Did you know that Painted Posies has been going on now for FOUR years?!? Now past the toddler stage and straight on into the preschool age, and I’m like, whoa, where did my baby go? Haha, seriously though. I can’t believe it’s only been four years, and at the same time already four years. If you’ve been following along since the start, you likely remember all sorts of different clips – things I’ve long ago forgotten, I’m sure. I thought it would be fun to take a quick trip down memory lane, just for funsies.

Wandering Eye Wednesday has generally been a pretty popular series, albeit a little less so lately. Here are the top Wandering Eye Wednesday posts from the last four years. And yeah, so grateful I ditched the frames!

Los Angeles is also a crowd pleaser ’round these parts. One of my dearest destinations (thanks to one of my most beloved people), I’m happy to see these posts were in the top ten:

Recipes have been a staple around here, even if they are far and few between anymore. I love sharing simple vegetarian meals, and I do spice things up with carnivorous meals now and again…

Just a quickie: fast appetizers

Getting outside and camping, hiking or just enjoying nature is an important part of my life, and so it’s featured on Painted Posies here and there:

Our first post was about shadow boxes. It feels a little weird now, although I’ve made a few and I DO still love them. I haven’t created a shadow box in so long now, though… This picture, jeez!

Let it Snow Shadow Box

I am so super incredibly proud of how far my photography skills have come, let me tell you. So, did I miss any of your favorites? Please share, I’d love to know!
