Succulent Terrarium Tutorial Inexpensive Gift, Home or Coffee Shop Decor

My daughter has been wanting to make a succulent terrarium, but she has very limited space in her bedroom. She’s been on the lookout for a cute small size container, and I found the perfect one! I was in a thrift store a few days ago and spotted the most adorable single serving coffee pot. She loves coffee with a passion, so I knew this would make the perfect container for a mini succulent terrarium. I made a video, so you can {Read More}

How to Build a Farmhouse Rustic Handled Wooden Crate from Pallet Wood

My husband recently restocked our supply of pallets, and I knew exactly what I wanted to make with one of them – a rustic handled wooden crate!

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}

Fresh Fruit & Flowers Rustic Centerpiece + Exciting News!

Wanting to make a good impression while my son’s girlfriend was here over the weekend, I figured I’d better do a little grocery shopping.  I bought cookies, cake, several kinds of muffins, cheese danish, cinnamon bread … and so she wouldn’t think all we eat is junk, I stocked up on lots of fresh fruit too. 🙂 While I was at it, I bought some pretty roses that I put in an old mason jar on the nightstand in the guest room. {Read More}

Sunflowers in Junk to Cheer Me Up

Well, my weekend plans took a nosedive, but sunflowers came to my rescue. I was feeling kind of down in the dumps, because my daughter and I had planned to go camping,  and I was looking forward to stepping away from all my projects and unplugging from the computer. But rain was predicted, so I had to find a new plan.

Antique Trunk Tray Makeover

Once upon a time (about 4 years ago), I went to the most ahhmazing farm country auction, and at that auction, I scored an antique trunk. Now, I really didn’t personally have any place to put that antique trunk, but it was so cool I couldn’t resist bidding on it, and to my surprise, I won. As I was getting ready to load it in my van, a young gal approached me and asked if she could buy it off {Read More}

Dahlias Decor & More Flowers

I’ve always loved the simplicity of daisies, and up until last week, they were my favorite flower, but when I went shopping for snapdragons to put in my Farmhouse Window Box, I passed some dahlias, whose blooms where stunning. It  was less expensive to buy the bulbs than the plants, so I bought a bag of them. Given my track record with flowers, I’m not holding my breath that I’ll end up with plants with these beautiful blooms, but it can’t hurt {Read More}

seed packet printables & shop talk

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}

Window Flower Box for the Guest House

There are things we know we should never, ever do.  Things we’ve known since we were young. Things like: Never cross the street without looking both ways first. Never interrupt someone while they are talking. And whatever you do, never, ever, ever go shopping on an empty stomach, because if you get to the store and it’s the day they are offering free samples, you’ll get home, unpack your groceries, and realize you bought 10 pounds of amazing raspberry cheddar gourmet cheese, a 48-count case {Read More}

Farmhouse Flowers Printables

It’s been rainy, cold and dreary here in the Midwest, and since it’s too wet to do anything outside, I brainstormed what project I could work on indoors, and  I remembered some farmhouse style photos I took last year, and realized I had a really easy project I could make with them.
