On Sutton Place Top Ten Posts for 2014 | DIY, Recipes, Crafts and more! | onsuttonplace.comThe last days of 2014 are upon us. It’s the natural time of year to reflect and review, but also to plan and look ahead. It’s been a good year. More ups than downs and for that I am thankful. Today I’m joining some blogger friends and we’re sharing our ten most viewed posts from 2014. In my case, that doesn’t necessarily mean my ten best posts. There are a few on my list that almost didn’t get published because I thought they weren’t good enough. Thank heavens I didn’t listen to myself! Anyway, here’s my run down beginning with #10. All the post titles are links to the original post and the pictures are linked as well. See you at the end.

    Everything you do is amazing, Ann. When I stop by to visit I feel like I’m in my favorite book store relaxing and getting lost in the pages of a lovely book or magazine.

We can all share and learn things from one another. So thank-you for sharing and teaching and keep it going throughout 2015. Best of Wishes! Toodles, BArbi

  11. Christy@Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer says:

    Your top 10 made me want to click on just about every one! Great posts and beautiful pictures. Great tip for cooling eggs quickly to peel too. Don’t know I never thought of ice instead of nearly burning my fingers. And your decorating tips are spot on! Happy New Year! XO

  12. Dearest Ann,

    I just wanted to let you know how much I truly enjoy your blog. The ideas are wonderful and never out of reach for those of us on a tight budget. I cannot tell you how many of your ideas I have incorporated into my holidays this year.

    I look forward to every write up you send my way. The ideas are so classy and wonderful. Most of all, they feel like home.

    Again, many thanks. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Happy New Year to you too and thank you for letting me know you are following along. Your comment totally made my day!

  13. Shannon @ Fox Hollow Cottage says:

    I do the same thing.. forget that what is a old-hat for me, might be a simple new idea for someone else!! Great posts and projects Ann. Love your blog :)

    Happy New Year!

  14. Jennifer @ Town and Country Living says:

    Ann, not only are your projects beautiful and informational, but your photography is wonderful. All your photos are crisp and bright! You’ve given us an inspiring year!!

  15. I’ m going to try your boil egg idea. The last time I tried boiling eggs they ended up on the ceiling. I kept wondering what happened to the eggs and finally looked up and there they were…crazy huh?

    Love your blog!!

  16. So many ideas, you are truly an inspiration! I’ve tried the boiled eggs tip and it’s awesome! I can’t wait to try the rest! I may get my husband to do the rock border ;)
    Happy New Year,

    Ann, your list is so….enlightening! I knew that your post about getting rust marks off silverware was getting pinned a lot, but who knew that was a problem that many folks were seeking an answer!!! I think all your posts are interesting and informative. This old teacher loves to learn a few new tricks, too! Keep ’em coming!
