Hello again friends!
To most of us, 2020 is a blur. It will probably be remembered as one of the longest years of our lives. Looking back, there were many accomplishments and happy times. We have all fought through and are now at the end of this year…ready to welcome 2021 with open arms. There are a few days left in 2020 and I hope that we will savor the days remaining, remember the good of 2020 and walk into the next year with hope, joy and optimism.
Today, I wanted to look back at some of the most popular posts of 2020 for Mulch and Paint.
I also want to take this time to thank all of you who visit this little blog of mine and spend time with me.

Let’s get started!
Most Popular Recipe of 2020
This salty sweet side dish can even sub as a dessert. I discovered this wonderful casserole thirty years ago and was amazed at many readers who had never tried this. The great part about pineapple casserole is that it takes minutes to assemble and you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.

#10 Jar Upcycle DIY
I can’t wait to try another craft like this! Add a secret ingredient to paint and get a wonderful texture.
