Get Well Soon or Mother’s Day 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}

Country Boy Song & Thrift Frame Makeover for Dad

I’ll never forget the Christmas I received a John Denver album as a gift.  I loved all the songs on it, but my favorite was the Thank God I’m a Country Boy song. I’d crank the record player’s volume up, and belt that song out at the top of my lungs, replacing “boy” with “girl”. I was a country girl back then, and I’m a country girl now, and I still love John Denver. 🙂 With Father’s Day coming up, {Read More}

Gingham Christmas Wreath and Gift Cans with Video

I don’t know what it is about  gingham, but it has an old-fashioned charm that I can’t get enough of.  It reminds me of curtains hanging in an old farmhouse and vintage aprons. I bought an evergreen garland for my entryway, and had a lot left over, so I wired a leftover piece around a grapevine wreath to hang in my kitchen. I used this  gingham wired ribbon to make a bow for the wreath.  It’s easy to work with, and holds its shape {Read More}

Homemade Christmas Ideas, Projects, Printables

As I was looking back through past homemade Christmas ideas and projects, I realized that you may have missed many of then – especially if you are new to my blog, so it made sense to round them all up into one easy to navigate post. I’ve got four years worth of DIY Christmas posts, projects, graphics, printables, and gift ideas, and they are all organized into categories with links to every post. {Just click on the images below to visit {Read More}

Flannel Lavender Heat Pack with Washable Cover

Not wanting my mom to get bored during her visit, and being the sweet daughter that I am, I lined up a few projects for her to work on while she’s here. 🙂 My feet are always cold, so one of the projects I had in mind for her was to sew up a microwaveable lavender heat pack. I’ve been using an old pillow case filled with rice as a makeshift heat pack, and not only was it ugly, it {Read More}

DIY Farmhouse Decoupaged Galvanized Bucket

DIY Farmhouse Decoupaged Galvanized Bucket I promised I’d show you the project I made using one of the milk cap image printables I shared yesterday, so I got up early this morning to take photos of this decoupaged bucket in the kitchen, when the sunlight is so pretty shining through the window.

DIY Farmhouse Photo Coasters

Have you all just wandered around a home improvement store lately?  I’m telling you, even if you don’t have a DIY house project to work on, you’ll still walk out with project ideas you never knew you wanted to make. Last week when I was in Lowes getting beadboard for my drawer-turned-farmhouse cabinet, I was browsing the end caps on my way up to the cash register, …and there it was – the next project I had NO idea I wanted to make. {Read More}

Keeping Time

It was a quiet day at my house today.  The 3 oldest kids were all at work, and my teenager left to stay with a friend, so it was just hubby and I at home. I thought about going to the flea market, since I haven’t been there yet this year, but one look at the forecast convinced me that it wouldn’t be fun walking around during a downpour and thunderstorm. So, since I don’t have any great finds to {Read More}

Stenciled Drop Cloth Pillow and Down Time

My stencil sales have been coming in at a somewhat slow and steady pace, which was fine, because it was a pace I could keep up with.  Then BAM, as soon as I introduced the Milk & Cream Co. stencil design, orders started pouring in.  I wasn’t prepared to get so many orders so quickly and I spent the weekend up to my ears in Milk and Cream. Of course, that’s a very good thing, but by yesterday I was exhausted, and in dire need of {Read More}

Image Transfer on Glass

Yesterday I showed you my new twine dispenser with an antique graphic on it, and I promised that today I would share how to add an image transfer on glass.  You’ll never throw an empty food jar away again, once you see how easy it is to do! Although the process is similar to doing a regular image transfer, there is no transfer medium used, and the image isn’t permanent, so it’s also like putting a removable decal on glass. Let’s get started!
