Wooden Twine Holder – Pinned and Done!

I want to send out a heart-felt “thank you” to all of you who shared your stories, wrote well-wishes and are sending up prayers for my son while he’s at basic training.  I had no idea so many of you have been where I’m at as a mom and have grown sons who’ve already been-there/done-that.  It really does my heart good to hear your boys survived and are better men for it.Okay, enough about me!  Do you have a mile-long {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Dear Little Boy of Mine, Beanee Weenees, New Underwear & a Sale!

I do have an antique graphic to share with you today, but bear with me as I share a little peek into my family life first. My oldest son left for Basic Training before dawn Tuesday morning.  This might sound kooky, but I couldn’t stand the thought that he didn’t need to take anything with him, except his cell phone, driver’s license and birth certificate.  Nothing…just the clothes on his back, those few articles of identification, and his phone. “Can’t {Read More}

Sonday – {Whiter Than Snow}

I’d love to hear what your learned and read from the Scriptures this week.  Unfortunately, what I have to share with you, probably won’t encourage you at all, and for that I’m sorry. I’ll be honest – I’ve felt frustrated this week.  To me, sin is like a big mud pit.   You may WANT out of that mud pit, but you feel helpless to get out of it.  You need someone to grab a hold of you and PULL {Read More}

How do you DRESS your Drawers?

Crazy busy day here today, so you get photos and that’s it! Tell me what you do with drawers in your house. I love creating vignettes inside them!

Farmhouse Dairy Sign, a Mini Version and Some Silhouette Tips

I enjoyed creating the Milk & Cream Co. sign so much, I thought I’d create another dairy sign.   I decided to look for another design to put on it. I searched the internet for inspiration and came across this antique business card.  I love the various font styles on it. {source} Once again, I removed the background and removed some of the wording, to come up with this image. This design proved to be very tricky for the Silhouette {Read More}

Thursday’s Theme – {Architectural Salvage Bliss}

Serendipity…happy accident. That was the kind of day I had last week.My husband called me and said, “Hey there’s a building being gutted and it looks like they have some stuff for sale outside – you might want to come take a look.” When I arrived at the location, I saw just a few odds and ends outside an old brick building.  I got out and spotted one little thing that interested me, so I asked a man working there {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 2 Cattle Images

I wish I could remember where I got this image, but I scanned it, labeled it as the year 1871, then forgot to share it with you. Anyway, I’m rather partial to old cow images, and think they make great art for transferring to fabric, for the kitchen or to put on pillows.   I’ve removed the background, so you can layer this image over other images. I have a somewhat funny story about longhorn cattle with you.  When we lived in New {Read More}
