Antique Bird Prints

This set of beautiful bird prints both came from a 1920’s bird book, and show birds resting on evergreen branches.  They are perfect for framed art,  and would make lovely greeting cards as well.  I’ve included two printables using one of the bird images, layered over 2 antique postcard images that I previously shared.. {CLICK ON IMAGES TO VIEW AND PRINT FULL SIZE} This bird is called a Coal Titmouse.

Enamelware Pie Pan Pedestal Stand and a Beautiful Autumn Day

Any fellow lovers of vintage enamelware out there? Enamelware immediately makes me think of an old farmhouse kitchen, and I never walk away from a reasonably priced piece.

A Lace Stenciled Chair, a Little Village & an Old Man with His Dog

Wanting to find a pretty backdrop to photography my latest furniture makeover project, I found the perfect spot! After all, what spot could be better than an an old village, with an old building, with old doors? As if that wasn’t enough, there was also an old church, and even an old man with his old dog!

I was digging through my stash in my workshop, and came across a book about birds, with a pretty cover, patterned with bird feathers. I’m not even sure where I got it, but I remembered that I had a bird wall hook in my stash too, and they seemed to belong together.

Autumn Morning on a Farm Country Road

The last several days, it’s been very foggy in the morning, but burns off late morning.  A few days ago, I was getting in my car, and noticed how beautiful it looked, with the fall colors, and had to grab my camera to capture it.   The view down our gravel road was ghostly beautiful, and  my oldest son said it looked like the Headless Horseman should come galloping down it. My old-fashioned wooden swing looked a little lonesome, yet charming. The {Read More}

Free Printable Vintage Postcard – Pretty!

It’s been awhile since I shared a vintage postcard, but I found this one at an antique store when I was on vacation in New Mexico, and really like the pretty scrolled font.  I think it would be fun to create a Christmas card with it, adding a family photo to the front.  It would also make a wonderful graphic for a blog. {CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE}  This image is a JPEG.  Click here for the PNG version of {Read More}

Tiered Stand Serving Center

Did you think you’d seen the last of tiered stands from me?  Well, I hope not, because in the past, I’ve always shown my tiered stands as more of a decorative item, but with my most recent tiered stand, I wanted to show it as a decorative, but very useful piece to have.
