deliciously organized 2011 recap!

Hope you all had a fabulous Holiday weekend!  Since we are quickly approaching 2012, I thought I might put together a little recap of 2011 here on Deliciously Organized...

In January, we moved back from Boston to San Francisco into our new home and was part of The Nest:


In February the floral bench got a makeover for the new apartment with a vintage fabric found in the remnant section of Britex. 

quick shot of Britex-need to go back ASAP for wedding goodies. 

and we made a trip to the beach...

the bedroom started to come together, but still needs a lot of work....

In March, I attended a bridal tour in wine country...



made cupcakes and added very easy to make round labels...

and then made a big batch of rainbow juice...

In April, I made gluten free, sugar free, & vegan mini banana muffins that were surprisingly delicious! 


& some more green juice...

and lastly, a spring salad:

In May, I saved a stained cream blouse with dye:

AND, we booked the garden we are getting married in!  very exciting for us!

In June, I had a wonderful trip to the farmers market...

framed and hung the gifted Boston poster

right before taking off to Lanai for vacay...


&  received some beautiful birthday peonies...

In July, was excited to use new stationery...

and tried making my first floral frog:

made one of my favorite scrubs to date:

and another...



& my little sister came to visit and we made a trip up to Stinson Beach:

In September, we had pretty flowers in the house:

took a trip up to Tahoe...

took a walk in our city during one very hot day:

In October, I made cinnamon oil:
and then used it to make lip scrub: note on the lip scrub-add less sugar and more oil than listed in recipe:

decorated the pumpkin:

and made a favorite go-to meal:

In November, I tried to slow down and incorporate greens back into my diet:



another smoothie

went to Napa:

In December, glitter covered the apartment while making DIY ornaments: 



the tree went up:

and lastly, we celebrated 6 years last week! {picture from last year}

Thank you all for being here with me in 2011! I am very blessed to have such amazing readers! I said this last year, and I'll say it again, it would not be the same without you all!

Can't wait to see what 2012 brings!

Happy New Year!!!

happy holidays!

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying the Season!

happy holiday weekend!

will you be partaking in any holiday crafting this weekend? 

If I could sew, I would love to whip up some custom stockings for my fiancĂ© & I!  One of my all time favorite bloggers, Seleta  {I think it was one of the first blogs I ever read} was recently featured in Southern Living sharing "Holiday decorating Seaside Style" which included this shot of the above stockings.  Also in the article was a few other beautiful Christmas images...

such an inviting door-can't get enough of all the greenery 
love the non-traditional colors for Christmas in this room, the blues pop against all the natural textures-

I don't know where you live, but I would love to escape seaside for the Holidays...
