Photography Friday – ISO camera setting

Last Friday, I told you that I was going to get serious about learning how to use my DSLR camera, by taking online classes with Shoot Fly Shoot (see affiliate link on my sidebar).  I hope that those of you who have DSLR cameras, but you haven’t learned to use them to their full potential, will be encouraged to learn as well.  We can do this!

Cutting Edge Stencils Giveaway + 8 Free Vintage Floral Papers

Last week, I mentioned that I would be having another giveaway, then I totally forgot to post it, so my apologies, if you wondered what happened.  Anyway, this giveaway is from Cutting Edge Stencils, makers of not only some of the best variety of stencils on the market, but also some of the highest quality.

Set of 2 Antique Bird Prints – Birds in Autumn

This set of beautiful bird prints both came from a 1920’s bird book, and show birds resting on oak tree branches, with acorns still attached to the branches.  They are perfect for Autumn style  framed wall art, and would make lovely greeting cards as well. {CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE} This pair of birds are called Firecrest. This bird is called a Woodchat. Click on the “Antique Graphics” tab at the top of the page, for more of my free antique bird {Read More}

Repurposed Drawers into Wall Shelves

Last week, I showed you the trashed dresser that I turned into an entertainment center.  I didn’t use the top 2 drawers, because we needed their space for the DVD player and game system, but I wanted to find another use for them and repurposed drawers projects are some of my favorite projects, so I got busy with them.

Photography Friday – Practicing Outdoor Rural Photography

You’d think with as many photos as I shoot for my blog and shop, I really love photography, but I don’t.  I actually don’t like it at all, but I know a large part of that is because I’ve never really learned to use my camera, so it seems like so much work to get good photos.  I have a DSLR camera, but for the most part have used it like a point and shoot, relying entirely too much on {Read More}

Vintage Clip Art – Pointing Fingers & a BIG Announcement!

I’m pointing fingers today! These fun vintage clip art images came from the advertising section in an 1800’s Peterson’s Magazine.  They could be used on To-Do Lists, menu boards, or even used as a pattern for a sign.
