Sonday – Spelling LOVE

View Verse of the Day The lyrics of this 1915 children’s song  and a real treasure and I hope it encourages you to “love…in deed and in truth.” My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue,  but in deed and in truth.   And by this we know that we are of the truth,  and shall assure our hearts before Him.  1 John 3:18-19 Blessings, Angie Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a set of 5  Packaways storage {Read More}

Rural Churches

One of my favorite things about driving back country roads, is coming across old country churches. My daughter and I went to the flea market  WAYYYY out in the country a few weeks ago, and saw a few wonderful, old rural churches. I couldn’t tell whether this one still holds services or not,but it sure is a beauty. A 127 year old Baptist church sits right behind the Methodist church, offering services only on the first 2 Sundays each month. {Read More}

View Verse of the Day I’m still on a roll creating banners with old book pages and have a few more I plan to design soon, but I wanted to share the most recent one with you, and provide you with a printable so you can easily create your own, with whatever word(s) you want on it. I love the look of old book pages, so I choose antique Bible pages and used a stencil for both the “frame” and {Read More}

A Theme for Thursday – {Baskets}

I love baskets of all types – wicker baskets, wooden baskets, metal baskets, but I love turning things into baskets that didn’t start out that way. I brought home several new “baskets” from the flea market recently, so they have become my latest “theme”. For example, this “basket” was originally used by fishermen, the wire and patina make it perfect to bring in from the lake to the house.  Do you know what this is? It was a horse muzzle, {Read More}

Antique Milk Bottle Caps – Royalty Free Printables

I love old milk bottles and their printed caps have such a wholesome, yesteryear look, so I thought it would be fun to share a few I have with you. The nice thing about having the image of the real thing is that although milk caps are small, you can take the image and make it much larger, so there are a lot of projects you could use the images for. I like the red, white and blue colors on {Read More}

GIVEAWAY – Packaways Reusable Plastic Storage Boxes {3 Winners!}

When the people of Packaways contacted me,  asking me to review their storage containers, there were 3 reasons I was thrilled and the timing couldn’t have been better: 1)  My husband’s parents & my parents  are coming to visit – one after the other and my house isn’t near ready for company. I’ve got a lot of junk to hide! 2)  My college son may have moved to the dorm, but a bunch of his stuff remains here that needs to {Read More}

Printable Recipe Cards & Antique Graphic for Iron-on Transfer

I may not love to cook, but I do love this domestically sweet image of a woman making custard. It was from a 1910 advertisement for Kingsford’s Corn Starch sent to me by Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. I liked it so well, I decided to create some recipe cards and a flour sack towel with the image. The background for the recipe cards is from an antique ledger page. I’ve removed all the background from the image, so it can be {Read More}

{Press On}

My daughter and I went to the flea market last weekend, and I found quite a few little goodies, including this old iron cooling rest.  It only cost 50 cents and since we are just starting the remodeling of our laundry room, I thought this would make a fitting decoration for the room. I wanted to do something fun with it, and a verse from Philippians 3:14 popped into my head, so I used some Scrabble tiles to form the words, {Read More}
