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.

Salvage I Never Thought I’d Never Find a Use For!

It’s finally warmed up enough, that I ventured out into my junk shop (which would be a workshop if I ever get it cleaned and organized, and started rummaging through my stockpile of salvage. I’m still trying to get my  creative mojo groove back, and repurposing junk usually does that for me. I spotted a piece of salvage that’s been taunting me for a long time. Do you know what it is? If you guessed it’s an piece from an antique sewing {Read More}

When Creativity Takes a Nosedive

I was so glad to get home last week, and couldn’t wait to dive into some new projects. The  long drive home I planned what I would work on first. So,  what amazing projects have I completed in that week?
