How to Make Simple Farmhouse Decorative Pillows, a Few Tips & a New Video

In my opinion, some words should be eliminated from the English language.  “Throw pillows” is one of them, and only “decorative pillows” should be allowed. Let’s think about it.  The word decorative is an adjective.  It’s a harmless adjective that describes things. But the word throw?  That’s a verb.      And my family takes their verbs seriously.

Spring Flowers Apothecary Jars with Refreshed Printable Labels

Buying myself a bouquet of spring flowers is right up there with getting my nails done or treating myself to lunch. As the L’Oreal commercial says, I buy them, “because I’m worth it.” 🙂 Flowers make me happy.  They look beautiful and they smell great.

Instead, I like to make {Read More}

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Make a Farmhouse Barn Quilt Block Sign with Step-by-Step Tutorial

Do you remember when I wanted a barn quilt, but I soaked in my bathtub while my son drew all the painting lines for me? And do you remember the time I had to patch 100 screw holes in my kitchen because I had drilled so many screws into the walls?

Bespoke Wooden Totes & American Farmhouse Style

My daughter has a word-of-the-day app on her phone.  Most of the words are ones that are seldom used and neither of us know what they mean, but the one she told me the other day was bespoke. It’s an old word that dates back to the 1500’s and is rarely used in normal conversation, but  it’s become a somewhat trendy word today.

Laundry Room Sign Stenciled on Salvaged Wood Shelf

Well, hello 2017.  It’s so nice to meet you! If you’ve followed Knick of Time during the last year, you know that 2016 was a kinda’ rotten year for our family.  So I hope the door smacked it in the rear on its way out! 🙂 Between losing my mother-in-law in January, losing my dad in March, and my mom getting diagnosed with cancer in the midst of all that, getting inspired to work on projects was hard to do. But… it’s {Read More}
