New Farmhouse Kitchen Decor and Vintage Finds in the Shop

When I first started blogging, my main occupation was a “picker.” Back then, I attended at least one auction every week, and during the summer months I often went to several each week. It wasn’t uncommon for me to fill up the back of our pickup truck from just one auction with vintage pieces that I’d bring home to clean up and sell or salvaged junk that I’d repurpose into something new and sell through my online shop. Things changed {Read More}

Where to Find the Best Vintage Style Industrial Decor

Have you all been watching Timeless?  My daughter got me started watching it, and now I’m hooked. Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus go back in time to stop Garcia Flynn from killing important people and changing the course of history. I love the story line, but seriously … If I were Lucy, I’d be buying everything I could get my hands on and transporting it back to 2017! 🙂 Time travel shopping.  Wouldn’t that be amazing?

How to Make Simple Farmhouse Decorative Pillows, a Few Tips & a New Video

In my opinion, some words should be eliminated from the English language.  “Throw pillows” is one of them, and only “decorative pillows” should be allowed. Let’s think about it.  The word decorative is an adjective.  It’s a harmless adjective that describes things. But the word throw?  That’s a verb.      And my family takes their verbs seriously.

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}

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Make a Farmhouse Barn Quilt Block Sign with Step-by-Step Tutorial

Do you remember when I wanted a barn quilt, but I soaked in my bathtub while my son drew all the painting lines for me? And do you remember the time I had to patch 100 screw holes in my kitchen because I had drilled so many screws into the walls? Both of those stories illustrate something I’m embarrassed to admit …      I can be kind of lazy. But sometimes laziness pays off when I figure out an easier way {Read More}

Blue and White Delft Style Thrift Store Find

My daughter and I went out of town a few days ago, so we hit every thrift store we came across on the way. I love thrift store shopping with her because our tastes are total opposites, so we’re never rivals when we’re out thrifting.

Affordable Natural Fiber Jute Rugs

I’ve been eyeing jute rugs for a long time, but after seeing so many expensive ones that other bloggers bought, I assumed they were all out of my price range. I was so wrong though!

Flower Shop Rusty Metal Farmhouse Bucket Makeover

Visiting a flower shop in the dead of winter is a bit like crashing a slumber party full of preteen girls when they first discover makeup. If a little color is a good thing, surely every shade on the color wheel must be better. We’ve all been there, right?

Laundry Room Sign Stenciled on Salvaged Wood Shelf

Well, hello 2017.  It’s so nice to meet you! If you’ve followed Knick of Time during the last year, you know that 2016 was a kinda’ rotten year for our family.  So I hope the door smacked it in the rear on its way out! 🙂 Between losing my mother-in-law in January, losing my dad in March, and my mom getting diagnosed with cancer in the midst of all that, getting inspired to work on projects was hard to do. But… it’s {Read More}
