Vintage Decor Inspiration Party – Knick of Time Tuesday #145

Welcome back to Knick of Time Tuesday
I have got some fabulous features for you today!

Before we get started, I thought I’d share a glimpse into the crazy busy, but totally fun time I had last week.  Monday through Friday, I taught a “Junk Art” class for VBS.  I was surprised how much my students absolutely loved it.  Before the week was over, they already wanted to know if I’d be teaching it again next year.  Future junkers – Yay!!
(for their safety I’ve covered their faces)

I was also in charge of decorating the stage.  We had a special agent theme, so I designed it to look like the Agent Headquarters.

I turned one of my antique map graphics into an engineering print at Staples, added a few clocks, labels and yarn, to create the Special Agents Locations map.  The clocks were $4 each at Walmart, and the engineering print was about $3.  Totally inexpensive (and I needed the clocks anyway!)

The control panel was just a few painted egg cartons, with game board parts for the switches.  I bought dollar store frames and inserted images to look like computer screens.  I printed a keyboard image I found online, and hot glued everything on a foam board.  Cheap and easy!

My family also went kayaking on the Current River in Missouri on Saturday.  I was tired and sunburned after our 10-mile ride, but it was a lot of fun.  I confess, my husband did almost all of the paddling, but every time I tried, our kayak went the wrong way, so I mostly relaxed, and avoided him scowling at my lack of paddling skills.  This is the 2nd year we’ve gone kayaking, and I’m pretty sure we’ll make it a yearly event.

We couldn’t have asked for a prettier day, although the river was fairly crowded with people.

My 3 crazy sons had fun doing some cliff jumping.

I, on the other hand, kept my feet firmly planted down below!

My daughter was equally smart, but she immersed herself in the water to cool off.

My hubby tried to avoid getting his photo taken, but I snuck in a few shots.

There was one really sad day in the week, when I attended the funeral of a man from my church.  He and his wife had been door greeters, and his smile will be missed by all, but I truly believe one day he’ll greet God’s children at the door of heaven and welcome us in, as he’d done in church so many times!  I hope each of you here today are one of God’s children.  If you aren’t, I hope you won’t let the sun go down today, without becoming one.  None of us are guaranteed a tomorrow, and I want to see each one of you in heaven!

I’m not trying to preach a sermon (and couldn’t if I tried), but please feel free to ask me about becoming a child of God…your creator.  I’ll do my very best to answer your questions!  There’s nothing more important you could do today than become a child of the God who deeply loves you.

Now…on to the party!
You are welcome to share anything vintage, or vintage-inspired, as well as link up items you have for sale, as long as they are vintage.  NO FOOD PLEASE – I don’t want to be reminded that I should cook more often!

Let’s look at some wonderful features from last week’s party!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter created this adorable Christmas tree from old springs!  Add that to your “must make” list!

Totally love this handmade purse with vintage graphics sewn on it by Julia @ Vintage with Laces.  I wish my sewing machine didn’t hate me, but she is clearly on great speaking terms with hers!

No matter the subject, if Anne Lorys @ Fiona and Twig photographs it – I’ll love it!  This gorgeous photo of old seed bag pillows and a Winnie the Pooh quote will be a magazine feature soon!  Don’t you want to just plop yourself down right there?!
Grain Sack Seed Bag Pillows
I am green with envy over this chippy paint door from Susan @ Must Love Junk.

I grew up riding nothing but Schwinn bikes, so I love seeing this old one shared by Elaine @ Heart Rocks in My Pocket.  My whole family all rode red Schwinn bikes.  Oh, the memories!

    Thanks for hosting!


  12. Love seeing your vacation pics and family!!!!! And how fun to be in your junk inspired craft class:) Hugs

  13. Angie, this might be my favorite round-up of features ever. Sometimes there’s so much beauty around us, it just takes my breathe away. I really enjoyed seeing your family river day! We live less than five minutes from the Colorado River {and plenty of lakes and creeks} and I just haven’t gotten out there enough with my kids this summer. What a fun VBS teacher you are! I loved all your creative props. I am sorry about the loss of your church friend. I know you will be blessed for extending the offer for others to accept God’s loving invitation and for allowing Him to use you.
    AND thank you so much for the party! : )

    xoxo shannon

  15. Hi Angie,
    Thanks for sharing my Papaw’s bike! I love that you have a connection to the Schwinn. VBS is so much fun. I know you worked really hard on the sets and in your craft room. Unless you’ve actually done these things, you have no idea how much work it requires. Your rewards will be in heaven! Sad to hear about your friend.
    Thanks for everything!
