Big Blue Finds a Home – {my weekend getaway}

If you remember last year about this time, I brought home a huge antique shop counter, which I called, Big Blue.  Big Blue got a gray makeover during the summer, but I didn’t have anywhere to put it, because it wouldn’t even fit through the doors in my house, so it’s been in my garage ever since. I would love to someday own a brick and mortar shop, but not knowing if that would ever happen, I decided to list {Read More}

Sonday – {Trust in the Lord}

It’s been a good, but long day.  I’ll tell you all more about my road trip later, but right now, my husband and I are hunkered down in Indiana, on our way home from Michigan.  We had planned on being home tonight, but it started snowing fairly heavy and we still had quite a few hours of driving ahead of us, so we decided to just pull over and get a room and good night’s sleep, and hope the roads {Read More}

Hitting the Road and a Few Things in the Shop

Early in the morning, I’m going on little weekend road trip with my husband, which I’ll be sharing more about later.  I have no idea what kind of places we’ll come across, but I’m hoping we’ll discover some great thrift and antique stores along the way, and that I’ll come home with a totally full vehicle.  The forecast is calling for snow, so I hope we get through it okay and have an uneventful drive, weather-wise. I spent several days {Read More}

The Making of an Antique Cupboard

Before I say anything else about today’s post, I want to thank to my husband.  Without him, I wouldn’t be sharing what I’m sharing with you today.  He helps me bring my plans and visions to reality and I truly couldn’t do it without him.  I don’t say it often enough, but I appreciate not only all the work he does for me, but his willingness to even tackle the projects I throw at him at all.  I really believe there {Read More}

Antique Winter Sledding Illustrations – Antique Graphics Wednesday

I’ve been busy buying lots of antique books the last few weeks, and I’m super excited about the graphics I’ll be sharing with you from them.  Today, I have several gorgeous winter images that all came from an 1859 Lady’s Almanac, as well as the cover from the book. {Click to View Full Size} I’ve never seen an almanac that was specifically made for women before, and this one is a real treasure.  It has the usual information found in {Read More}

Antique Ceiling Tile Dried Flower Display

A friend of mine from church is a florist and I was in her shop one day and spotted a vase full of flowers that were past their prime that she had culled from her stock.  I asked her what she does with them, and she replied that she throws them out.  If you know me at all, you know I don’t like to throw things out – especially something as pretty as dried flowers.   She let me take {Read More}
