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}

Bible Verse Typography Printables in Two Color Choices

I think I’ve mentioned in the past that my middle son is a graphic design major in college and for one of his recent assignments he designed a Bible verse typography poster, with the text from James 4:8. He knows how much I love typography, so he sent the image to me in two different color options. One has a black background with white and orange text, and the other has a white background with black and blue text. He gave me {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}

When There’s Trouble in the Chicken Coop

A few days ago, I was working in my she – shed, and I heard a loud squawking coming from the chicken coop. If you aren’t a chicken owner, let me give you a crash course in Chickenese. Of course, roosters crow, and they’ll do it any time of the day. From a distance, crowing sounds quaint.  When it’s outside your bedroom window, you start planning a chicken dinner. We don’t have any roosters, because we don’t plan to hatch eggs. {Read More}

Watercolor Art + Printable Backgrounds

One of my favorite things about sunset is that the sky often looks like watercolor art.  Sometimes it’s washed shades of blue, purple and pink, and other evenings it’s white, orange and yellow, depending on the season and weather. I love watercolor art, but I’m think the last time I tried to make some  was when I was in kindergarten. Someday I really would like to learn, but until then I have the next best thing – watercolor art that not {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}

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.

Singing the Blues with Blue Farmhouse Style

While I love white as the wall color in my house, I think blue in all shades makes the perfect companion to white in farmhouse style, so let’s take a look at some of them that “sing the blues” beautifully! Blue Farmhouse Style

Weathered Chippy Wood Photo Backdrop

I always find it amusing how different people can be, don’t you?  For example, there are people like me who love rusty old pieces of metal, and other kinds of people who sell rusty old things at their next yard sale (I love those people!).  And there are people like me who think chippy weathered wood is one of the prettiest things on earth, but then there are other types of people who use that same wood for their next bonfire. It {Read More}
