Repurposed Chair Seat Bulletin Board

In the fall, I brought home oodles and oodles of antique wooden folding chairs from an auction.   I sold nearly all of them, but I had some left that either had damaged seats, or damaged frames.   I love the challenge of figuring out something new to do with something that would otherwise be trash, so I pondered what I could do with the seat from one of the chairs that had a broken frame. I stripped off the {Read More}

Graphically Speaking

Colonial Pharmacy Sign

I’m sure you’ve figured it out by now, that I’m a little ga-ga over antique advertisements and signs. I really love taking an image from the past, and putting it onto something that can be used in today’s home.  When possible, I love using the exact image, as I did in this sign, rather than just using a font to copy the wording. I used this antique pharmacy label that I shared with you for Antique Graphics Wednesday HERE, to {Read More}

Thursday’s Theme – {Grouped Collections}

Last week I brought home the most charming group of antique enamelware serving spoons.  The make great home decor individually, but grouped together, they really pack a visual punch.  It made me think back to all the instant collections I’ve sold in my shop over the last few years. I didn’t blog about most of these collections, so for Thursday’s Theme, I thought I’d share some of them with you.  These grouped collections are always a good seller in my {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1920’s Bird Book Plates

To celebrate the first day of spring, today I’m sharing some beautiful book plate images of birds from a 1920’s book called, “Birds of the British Isles”. Enjoy!! (Click on Images to View Original Size) These would make beautiful framed prints.  I used one on a mixed media project – layered over a painted canvas, with some sheet music, and a dictionary definition. Blessings, Angie

Deconstructed and Reconstructed Lamp Shade

For several years, I’ve had this really pretty old metal lamp shade.  The original fabric covering it was trashed, but once I removed it, the base itself was a pretty, scalloped one. I used it in this photo I took of my sheet music dresser, but when we moved, I didn’t have any place to go with it, so it’s been sitting in my workshop ever since. While at a thrift store one day, I found a light attachment meant {Read More}

When Irish Eyes are Smiling

It’s St. Patrick’s day, so I had to share this antique sheet music page cover from the song, “When Irish Eyes are Smiling”. It’s pretty ragged and worn, but still beautiful.

Letters Home (from son at Basic Training)

Now I understand, at least one of the reasons, why God wants us to pray. Because there is nothing better than hearing from your child. I don’t think it matters how old they are. You’ll always want to know how they are doing, and what they are doing, and with whom they are doing it. Whether the news is bad or good…a parent wants to hear from their child. My son is away at Basic Training, and the letters he {Read More}
