Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1906 Woman Baking Pie Advertisement

With Thanksgiving coming soon, and lots of cooking and baking to be done, it seemed like a good time to share this image of a woman baking a pie, which was part of an advertisement for None Such Mince Meat, from a 1906 Ladies Home Journal magazine. This image was generously sent to me by Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. Blessings, Angie

Knick of Time Tuesday #113 – Vintage Inspiration Party

Welcome to Knick of Time Tuesday! If you follow me on Facebook, I’m providing updates on my cousin and my old hometown that was struck by tornadoes in Washington, IL yesterday.  All my family members are fine, although one of my cousins lost her home and car.  She was in the basement when the tornado struck, but she and her roommate are fine – praise God!  I’ll continue to update on Facebook, as the recovery efforts continue. I’m so glad {Read More}

Repurposed Antique FootboardTurned into a Coat Rack

I bought this antique bed footboard at an auction last week and decided to turn it into a coat rack. Here’s how it turned out.  I’m absolutely in love with it!  The details on it are gorgeous, so it just needed to be painted and given light distressing. I would love to have kept it, but since I don’t have a place for it right now, I listed it in my Etsy shop, and it sold quickly. Whenever we get our {Read More}

Sonday – {Bringing in the Sheaves} Antique Hymn Page Printable

The farmers in our area hustled all last week to finish harvesting the last of the corn.  This week they were tilling up the stubble left in the fields and I imagine they are relieved to have their work done for the season. I’ve very familiar with the first two verses in this hymn, but the last two are really meaningful as well. Blessings, Angie

Many Shades

Is anyone else still trying to get used to the time change?  My body just hasn’t gotten accustomed to it and as soon as it gets dark, I’m yawning and ready for bed. My oldest son is coming home for the weekend and arrives late this evening, so I’m going to catch a few winks now so I’ll be able to visit with him tonight. While I’m pulling the shades to get some rest, I thought I’d show you some {Read More}

Antique Wooden Worktable

Yesterday, I showed you some of the auction finds that I’m selling, but here’s the swoon-worthy guy I’m keeping. I really wasn’t looking to buy any large items at the auction, because my house is maxed out and big pieces are too difficult to ship, but I couldn’t pass this worktable up. It is definitely work-worn, and well-weathered…and that’s the way I like it. He was coated in years worth of dirt when I brought him home, but he cleaned {Read More}

On the Workbench and In the Shop

Last Sunday afternoon, my husband took my to an auction.  Believe it or not, I really didn’t feel like going.  I just wanted to relax and work on some projects after church, but he seemed up for it, so we went.  He never bids on anything and is willing to haul all my purchases to the Jeep while I keep bidding, so I couldn’t pass up that offer. I managed to fill our Jeep to the brim.  It was so {Read More}

Fancy Scrolled Frame from Sheet Music

Today, I have a beautiful scrolled frame image that came from the cover of some antique sheet music. This is the original cover. I modified it, turning it into a PNG image and removed the words and background, so you can digitally layer it over other photos or images. Here. I’ve layered it over an image of aged paper. It looks really pretty in this blue variation. Here’s the pretty scroll that was inside the frame. Let me know if {Read More}

Repurposed Trunk into Wall Cabinet

How many of you can tell what this trunk was in its previous life?  If you’re at least my age (middish 40’s), you probably know.  If you’re a young’un and think it’s a small suitcase…you’re close.  It’s a roller skates trunk.  I never had one growing up.  Every Friday night when I was in grade school, the thing to do was go to the roller skating rink.  Every Friday night, I envied the girls who had pretty white roller skates {Read More}
