Arrivederci 2013!

Wow, this is my last post of 2013.  That snuck up on me. 2013 was one for the books.

I quit my secure 9to5 job to flip houses then subsequently flipped a house!

While flipping, I learned how to tile and lay hardwoods, among other things.

We also redid our own kitchen and I'm still in love with it.

And I opened an etsy shop, Serendipity Vintage, giving me an excuse to collect more cool old stuff (I have so much cool stuff that I still have to list on the shop!)

Amongst the big-ticket items of 2013, there were a few fun little DIY projects sprinkled in there, like an ipad envelope

a wine rack

and a faux roman shade

Overall, I'd say 2013 was a great year, although I have a feeling that it was all just build-up for 2014.  I have a lot of plans for this next year and, even if only half of them pan out, 2014 should be epic!!

(raising a cup of coffee) Here's to 2013 and an even better year to come!!!
