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. According to Merriam-Webster, bespoke refers to things that are ordered before they are made. My husband and {Read More}

If I asked you to name one piece of decor in your home that not only looks great, but is functional as well, what would your answer be?  #1 on my list has to be totes. They are hard-working and can be used in any room in the house, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the craft room – even the garage. You can buy vintage totes, upcycle a thrift store tote, or make them from scratch. My favorite {Read More}

Happily Ever After Mini Dresser Makeover + New Quilt Block Stencil

I think all the best stories start with “once upon a time” and end with “happily ever after, and I have a good one for you! First, let’s meet the damsel in distress… I found this small dresser at a thrift store with a big “FREE” sign taped to the top. I’m a sucker for pitiful pieces like this, so I couldn’t just leave it sitting there. The drawers were broken, but I figured that even if the dresser couldn’t be saved, at least I {Read More}

Fresh Flowers, Spring Chickens, Placemat + Pillow

No, no, NO!   That’s the answer I’ve given my kids every time they ask if they can get another animal. When my kids were little, I was all in favor of having lots of animals, so each one of them got their own dog, my daughter also got 2 horses and a cat, and another cat adopted us that we kept (you can see him here). But now that they are older, my rule is that they are welcome {Read More}

Mason Jars Stencils, DIY Wood Tote + Custom Stencils

You all love mason jars, right?      Yeah, that’s a silly question! I collect old ones, and my favorites from my collection are displayed on the new kitchen window shelf my husband made me last year. Well, a few days ago, I shared a little wooden crate I had upcycled to look like an old produce shipping crate. It has the words, “Sweet Harvest Produce Co.” lettered on the side, but that lettering was only part of my newest Vintage Sign Stencil design, so I’m {Read More}

Garage Sale Find into Farmhouse Style Crate

It’s still a bit early in the season, but I did find a garage sale on Friday.  I need more “stuff” in my house like a need a hole in the head, but when I saw an elderly man was running it, I threw common sense to the wind and stopped to check it out.  If you love rustic and rusty things – look for old men having a garage sale, because they usually have what I love! I didn’t buy a lot, but {Read More}

The Great Outdoors + Arrows Stencil Designs!

Some of my best memories are memories made outdoors –  camping, fishing and bike riding with my parents and sister, and then with my husband and kids when I had my own family.

Flatware Carrier That Looks Like an Old Crate!

We don’t have a Costco where I live, so when I get the chance to shop at one, I’m like a kid in a toy store.  I want to taste all the samples, I want to stockpile commercial size containers of minced onions, and I get sucked in by cool things I don’t see in my local stores. Normally I resist the urge, because I’m either traveling by train with limited luggage, or I’m traveling with my family, and there’s no extra {Read More}
