Where to Find the Best Vintage Style Industrial Decor

Have you all been watching Timeless?  My daughter got me started watching it, and now I’m hooked. Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus go back in time to stop Garcia Flynn from killing important people and changing the course of history. I love the story line, but seriously … If I were Lucy, I’d be buying everything I could get my hands on and transporting it back to 2017! 🙂 Time travel shopping.  Wouldn’t that be amazing?

Evergreen & Antiques Free Christmas Decorating

Last year I bought a beautiful evergreen garland to hang in our entryway. I draped it around the doorway between the entryway and kitchen, and walking under it reminded me of walking through the field of pine trees my dad planted at my childhood home.  The garland had that amazing freshcut evergreen aroma; it looked beautiful and I absolutely loved it … … for about two days.

What to do with these Recent Finds? You Tell Me!

Before I left for New Mexico, I picked up some great finds.  Some of the pieces can be used as-is for home decor, but I’m not sure what to do with a few of the pieces, so I figured I’d just “poll the audience” and get your ideas. First I’ll show you the pieces that don’t have me stumped, then I’ll show you the ones I don’t know what to do with, and I hope you’ll give me your favorite ideas! This {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}

Antique Crates and a Rusty Kettle

I’ve mainly been working on Christmas projects, but I had to squeak in just a little bit more of autumn! I was hanging some decor in our still unfinished entryway (sigh), and I put some antique crates on the wall to use as small shelves.

Using Natural Elements and Vintage Decor in Autumn Decorating

I can hardly believe it’s October already, but the calendar doesn’t lie, so it must be true.  I’m afraid to blink, or it will be Christmas!  As much as I love the cheery red decor  in my kitchen, it looked very summery, and I waited a little too long to bring it in.  It’ll be perfect again when it’s closer to Christmas, but in the meantime, I wanted some autumn decor in the kitchen. I don’t have room to store boxes {Read More}

Flea Market Finds

I got up bright and early last Saturday to hit the flea market with my husband, only to find my husband was already awake, but feeling lousy.  We waited for awhile, but he still felt awful and went back to bed, but bless my oldest son’s heart – he went with me.  I haven’t gone to a single flea market all summer, and I’d never been to this particular one, so I was pretty excited. He really wasn’t interested in {Read More}

Keeping Time – Things that make you say “awwwww” & Giveaway Winners

Have you ever been to a graduation where video with photos of the graduates plays on the screen up front, end every time a baby photo is shown, the whole audience in unison says, “awwwww”? Well…get ready for some of that, okay? 🙂

Bugs, Grease, and an Antique Cutting Board

Old barns have the best stuff  in them, and there was a fair amount of stuff  in our barn when we bought our house. At first glance,  you wouldn’t have thought there was anything really worth keeping, but that’s what makes a barn a good mine – you have to dig for the good stuff, and you have to be willing to look beyond layers of dirt and, creepy crawlies, and spider webs. One of the things we uncovered was an old wooden crate. {Read More}

Milk and Cream Co. Sign on Stool and Chalkboard

It’s been more than 2 years ago since I made my first Milk and Cream Co. sign. Since I only had 1 antique window like that, I started making them on glass photo frames. And they sold, and they sold, and they sold, and to date I’ve made almost 50 more of them! Finally I realized that since other people love the design as much as I do, it was time to make make it available as a reusable stencil so anyone {Read More}
