Salvaged Wood Sign on Repurposed Single Tree

I’m back home from vacation, but am a little buried under luggage and “stuff” I brought home.  I love going on trips, but always feel like a need a week of at-home vacation to recuperate from traveling.   Next week, I’ll be back in full swing,  but I invited Larissa @ Prodigal Pieces to share with you how she made her hand-painted “Farmer’s Market” sign.  She linked it up at last week’s Knick of Time Tuesday party, and I thought it {Read More}

Industrial Home Decor Project Ideas

I didn’t miss cooking. I didn’t miss cleaning, and taking a break from writing blog posts did me good. But, the one thing I did miss while on vacation, was creating new projects. Making things just makes me happy, so going a week and a half without making something was a stretch for me.  I did start working on a crochet project (which may or may not ever get finished, because I didn’t use a pattern and it’s turning out {Read More}

Seed Bag Footstool

Hey everyone!  I’m still on vacation, visiting our families in New Mexico, but before we left home, I did a super quick and easy makeover on a footstool I bought at a yard sale last year, and had never done anything with.  I thought about painting it, but the wood was in great shape, so I decided to leave it.  Originally, it had ticking fabric covering the cushion.  I love ticking and would have left it as well, but there {Read More}

Here are 2 beautiful antique fruit image printables.  They are from a 1903 encyclopedia.  I think these would look wonderful as framed kitchen wall art, or used as iron-on transfers on flour sack towels. {The individual, high-resolution images are here: APPLES, CITRUS {PIN this image now & Print later|}

DIY Recycled Mason Jar Organizer

At this moment, I’m with my husband, 4 kids and 2 dogs, driving part way across the country.  My rear end and back are rebelling against sitting in a car seat for so long, and I’m already suffering from crafting withdrawal, but I keep reminding myself that it will be worth it once we arrive.  We’re going to visit grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles & cousins.  In other words, we are taking a much-needed break, surrounded by people we love.   {Read More}

Antique Hymn Printable for Father’s Day {Faith of our Fathers}

With Father’s Day coming soon, I wanted to share this beautiful old hymn early enough that it could be used to create a gift, or card, or even used with a photo, in remembrance of a father that has passed away.   I realize that most people haven’t had the blessing of growing up with a Godly father {if you did, I hope you are extremely thankful for that}, but we can all be grateful that men through the ages, {Read More}

Psalm 91 – A Sign Created from Tornado Salvage

You may recall that last November, my cousin (and many others) lost her home to a tornado that hit my childhood hometown (view that post here).  When they sorted through the rubble, they set aside any wood they felt I may be able to use to create something with.   One piece I brought home was a portion of a side rail from her bed.  The wood was battered, but battered wood is lovely to make signs with, so I {Read More}
