On the Workbench and In the Shop

As usual, it’s been a busy week, with lots of projects occupying my kitchen table.  I’m SO ready for spring, so I can get back out to work in my workshop, so our kitchen table and counters aren’t always covered with my projects, but since it isn’t yet February, I guess my table will be a mess for awhile longer. I love turning glass cheese domes into display cloches.  Frequently, I just repaint the bases and sell them like that, {Read More}

Grain Sack Typography Chair

I love going to auctions and bidding on broken things, because I know those are the things that not many others will bid on, so I can get a good deal. Last month, I bought a pair of antique caned chairs at an auction.  It appears that someone started the job of recaning them, but never finished.  I thought about trying to learn to cane them myself, but I knew the chances of that happening anytime in the near future {Read More}

Antique Calendar Image – {Antique Graphics Wednesday}

Since February is just a few days away, I have a pretty image from an 1859 Lady’s Almanac for you. If you missed it, I previously shared some pretty winter and January images from the same almanac with you HERE. You can find all the graphics in my collection HERE. Have you used one of my antique images on a project you created, or were you inspired by one of my projects to create your own?  Are you one of {Read More}

Free Printables – Antique Cow Image Advertisement Transfer Projects

Normally, I only post antique graphics on Wednesdays, but I have a few new antique advertisement images that I used on several different projects, so you are getting both the printable images, as well as my projects today. I bought a stack of antique books that were all pretty damaged, but hoped to be able to salvage a few images from them.  Among them was this 1917 almanac booklet, put out by the makers of Dwight’s Cow Brand Soda.  Fortunately, {Read More}

Antique Hymn Book Page – TRUST & OBEY {Sonday}

Blessings, Angie View Verse of the Day Due to unethical websites stealing content, I can no longer provide a full RSS feed. I work too hard to produce original and inspiring content to have it stolen by others. Thank you for your understanding – I appreciate each one of you that take time out of your day to visit Knick of Time!!

On the Workbench and In the Shop

You may want to grab yourself a hot drink, and make yourself comfortable, because this post is photo-heavy.  During our drive to and from Michigan last week, to deliver “Big Blue” to his new home, my husband and I stopped at as many thrift and antique stores as we could, although we passed so many we didn’t have time for.  I’m itching to go on another road trip now – preferably when it isn’t snowing though.  Everything shown in this {Read More}

Grain Sack Fabric and Antique Postcard Image Dry Erase Board

I love antique postcards, and created a dry erase board using the text from the back of one to create a dry erase board. The photos are fairly self-explanatory, but basically, I painted the frame of a thrift store photo frame with matte black paint. After falling in love with the red stripe fabric I used for our Christmas stockings, I wanted to get another color, so I ordered the tan with black stripes fabric.  I love the nubby, authentic look {Read More}
