The 5 words I hear every morning and a $100 VISA Card Giveaway

I’m a homebody.  Running errands and driving around town zaps my energy.  I’d be perfectly content to stay home all week, only going out to hit a yard sale… or five on the weekend. But my teenage son’s idea of a great day is to be on the go constantly. Within the first 5 minutes of waking up every morning, I know what words are going to come out of his mouth. “Are we going anywhere today?” We may be homeschoolers, {Read More}

Galvanized Bucket Makeover

I picked up this old galvanized bucket at a thrift store a few weeks ago.  I usually leave them as-is, because they’re so darn cute, but I decided to play around with this one a bit.  I’ve done a lot of transfer projects on wood and canvas, but I thought I’d try it on metal this time.  I was a little concerned that I might ruin the cute bucket, but crossed my fingers that it would turn out.

Vintage Postcards Images

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared any vintage postcards images, so today I have 5 of them that I found at an antique store recently.  They all have blue text and great fonts.  These would be wonderful for invitations and announcements, and if printed as wallet size, would make unique gift tags. {right-click on the full size images below, and save to your computer} {MORE PRINTABLE VINTAGE POSTCARDS CAN BE FOUND HERE}   Blessings,

Big Red Barn Photograph Printable

When I shared my DIY barn quilt a few days ago, I teased that this beautiful big red barn was actually my barn, before revealing what my barn really looks like. I took this photo a little over a week ago, when I was visiting family a few hours away.  It really is my dream barn.  Can you imagine a barn like this converted into a house?  I would want my bedroom up in the hay loft where that row of windows is. {Read More}

Repurposed Chair Flower Planter

 A few years ago, I had scads (does anyone still use that word?) of old chairs that I’d picked up, primarily at auctions.  I was on a repurposed chair kick , so most of them were turned into new creations, but I still have just a few left that I’ve never done anything with. I have no idea what possessed me to buy 2 of these chairs, because they aren’t my style at all, but I did.  I think they must {Read More}

DIY Barn Quilt

It isn’t a big secret that I love old barns, but have I ever told you about MY barn? Well, it’s a great big old red barn, with a white door, and a hayloft on top. There are horses in their stalls, and chickens in a coop, and we gather fresh eggs from them every day. On the outside, hollyhocks and sunflowers are growing, and the old water spigot never stops dripping. Hanging on the side of my barn is a big, beautiful barn quilt.

Make Your Dash Count

 http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV Those of you who have visited my blog for awhile, know I’m the mom of 4 kids, but what I’ve never shared before, is that before I ever had kids of my own, there were three other children in my life. Within 2 months of getting married, my husband and I became foster parents to 3 children with special needs, as part of a pilot program to remove young children with profound physical and mental disabilities from institutions, so they {Read More}
