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. I never buy bouquets that come in the basic glass jars.  There are far too many of them sitting on thrift store shelves already (but they make great toilet brush holders). Instead, I like to make {Read More}

Pastoral Farmhouse Antique Thanksgiving Postcards

Over the weekend, my daughter and I went on a quick road trip.  Along the way we made a few stops along the Spoon River Drive.  It’s a yearly fall festival that I’ve attended since I was a child. The fall scenery along the route is beautiful and many of the stops have vendor booths. One of the booths I visited had boxes full of antique postcards.  I wish I had time to look through all of them, but they were {Read More}

Get Well Soon or Any Occasion DIY Flower Vase Bottles

I had the most brilliant idea yesterday.  One I was sure would be SO much fun. “We should go to the State Fair”!  … I told my sister. She wasn’t quite as excited about the idea as I was, but I remembered all the times I’d taken my kids when they were little, and we’d had so much fun, so she went along with the idea.   It was dollar ride day, so I was excited to ride roller coasters and {Read More}

Old Barns – A Red One + Aged Music Page Printable

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any photos of old barns, but one showed up at my door this week, so to speak! Remember the gorgeous old barn that was just down the road from my house? It was owned by my mailman’s father, but was torn a few months ago. Well, a few days ago the mailman knocked at my door. He had 2 little girls with him and wondered if  his daughters could pet our “pony”. She isn’t really a pony, she’s {Read More}

DIY Blooming Pennant Banner

Today I’m going all Mr. Rogers, because it’s an absolutely beautiful day in my neighborhood.  The skies are blue, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping.  So, I have to ask… Won’t you be my neighbor? 🙂 Seriously though, it’s a gorgeous day that just makes your step a little lighter, so I finished a project that puts a smile on my face. I said last week that I’d be making some projects with the antique seed packet printables, and I {Read More}

Wedding + More 1920’s Flower Printables

It’s been a wonderful and busy weekend for our family.  My daughter’s life-long best friend got married, and my daughter was her maid of honor. They’ve been friends since they  were about 6 years old, and have been by each other’s sides ever since, so it was such a joy for me to watch my daughter get to stand by her friend’s side for the most special day in her life. My middle son was able to come home with his {Read More}

seed packet printables, shop talk & custom stencils

In between working on several new projects on Monday, I kept running out to the mailbox – waiting to see if the mailman had brought some beautiful antique seed packets I ordered. If there was a “who has the brownest thumb in the world” contest, I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender, but I still adore flowers and anything with flowers on them, so I had to buy these seed packs. They are originals from an early 1900’s seed store, and the images {Read More}

Flower Seed Packets Home Sign – Hometalk’s DIY My Spring

The minute the calendar flips to March, I start chomping at the bit for sunshine, green grass and fresh flowers, so when Hometalk announced they were hosting blog hop for DIY Spring projects, I was all in! It’s still too chilly for an outdoor project, so I brainstormed a bit and came up with something that would usher Spring indoors until the weather catches up with me, and here’s what I came up with… Flower Seed Packets Home Sign To create {Read More}

A Little Spring on a Drink Bottle

A Little Spring on a Drink Bottle Good morning everyone!  I don’t usually share my posts first thing in the morning, but I didn’t have the post finished yesterday, so I figured I would try being an early bird for once. 🙂  For those of you who are night owls like myself, don’t worry, I’ll be back to my evening posting schedule tonight. So, how’s the weather in your neck of the woods?  The end of February and all of March {Read More}

The Good Old-Fashioned Way

I don’t know about you all, but with the events of the last 24 hours in France, I just want to yell, “Stop the world, I want to get off!” I know the it’s probably naive the thing that the “old days” were any better than today, but I think most of us, myself included, crave  old-fashioned values, and a whole lot less bad news. I came across this hymn from the early 1900’s called, “The Good Old-Fashioned Way”, and I just had {Read More}
