Repurposed Baking Pans Tiered Stands ~ Numbered Versions

My husband and I created a few new tiered stands this week, but I wanted to do something different to these than usual, so I added some numbers on them. We did a 3-tier version using old pie pans and a 2-tier version using square baking pans. I love using these numbers on things, especially because they are from an 1800’s sewing pattern that I previously shared with you here.  I just opened the image with my Silhouette software and {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – French Document Printable

I have another French document printable to share with you today.  This one is from the early 1900’s and appears to be a check.  It has so many pretty elements on it – The “Paris” typography, the handwriting, the stamp in the corner, and the script font. (CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE) The reverse side has several signatures and rubber stamped images. I particularly like like this “Banque de France” stamp, and think it could make a great sign. I {Read More}

DIY Antique Doily Banner

I got a wonderful package in the mail last week.  My mother-in-law called me and said that she found some old doilies at an estate sale, but she wasn’t sure if I would like them or not, because they were a little discolored.  She said she washed them well, but the discoloration remained.  I exhaled (relieved), laughed, and told her I love discolored old doilies, so I was glad it didn’t wash out.  She likes some antiques, but isn’t a {Read More}

Old World Paint Finish on a Modern Mirror

Generally speaking, I have to like the things I bring home that I plan to sell in my shop, but once in awhile, I buy something that I look at later, and wonder what I was thinking.  Several months ago I found this mirror in a thrift store.  It was a dumb purchase, because I try to resist buying things that are breakable, since I have to ship them.  The other thing about this mirror, is the frame was shiny {Read More}

Repurposed Bed Frame Coat Rack, “It is Well” Wall Cubbies & New Items

I’m a sucker for spindles, so when I saw this bed foot board come up for bid at the auction, my bidding finger went up…over and over again.  Someone else wanted it as much as I did, but I kept bidding, far beyond what I normally would. I go to auctions to buy things for my shop, but I buy things I like, so in the event they don’t sell, I’m have something I would enjoy having in my home, {Read More}

A Quilt Inspired Wooden Chair and a Childhood Story

My family is full of gifted quilters.  I have one aunt that owned a wonderful quilt store for many years, and some day I’m going to coax her into letting me do a blog post about her many quilts (hint, hint, Aunt Lil).  I have another aunt that sews beautiful quilted handbags (well, she did before she became a full-time teacher).  My mother is a gifted seamstress, who has also sewn beautiful quilts. And then there’s me. Without constant supervision, {Read More}

Can You Guess The Mystery Parts?

Before I tell you much about the sign I made over the weekend, I’m wondering how many of you can guess what the parts were originally part of.  If I didn’t already know, there’s no way I would have guessed, but I’m curious if any of you can. Here’s what the pieces look like up close.  Any guesses? Okay, don’t peek yet, but I’ll give you the answer at the end of the post.  Anyway, recently, I bought two old {Read More}
