Enamelware Colander Hanging Light

When I drove to Springfield, MO last week with my oldest son, one of the antique stores we visited along the way was a huge building filled with different vendor booths.  At one of the booths, I found quite a few enamelware pieces, but my favorite of them was a vintage enamelware colander that said, “made in Poland” on the bottom.  It had a few little chips in the enamelware, which I love, and  I knew right away that it would {Read More}

DIY Framed Vintage Seed Bag

Do you remember that big blank space I had over my antique kitchen stove… that space I filled with a rustic framed chalkboard?  Well, I did it again – I sold the chalkboard and ended up with a big blank space once again.  It wasn’t any big deal though, and I planned to make another one of those chalkboards, but then I found this old feed bag that I’ve had for several years.  Instead of making a frame for a chalkboard, I {Read More}

Springtime on a Country Road

I did so much whining about the cold during winter, that I figured I should try to give equal time singing the praises of spring.  I’m also trying to capture my beautiful country road in photos in all four seasons, and today was the most gorgeous day to take photos.  The weather was absolutely perfect, the birds were chirping, and on a day like this, all seems completely right with the world. This image is available as a printable without my {Read More}

God be with You antique hymn page printable

This old hymn, “God be with You” is from one of my antique hymnals and would make a nice addition to a gift or used on a project for someone who is moving, going off to college, or leaving on a mission trip. I think it would work well printed for the cover of a card, or decoupaged into wood. Click HERE for the full size printable. I hope you enjoy it!  

Seed Store Vintage Sign Stencil

The next vintage sign stencil in my new line is based on an early 1900’s seed store advertisement that has really charming lettering.  I absolutely love this one, and could use it over and over (and did)! This stencil includes 2 sizes of the design.  The larger size measures about 16″ x 4-1/2″ and the smaller size measures about 8-7/8″ x 2-1/2″.  Both options are on 1 stencil, so you can select the size you need for your project.  This stencil is available in {Read More}

Farmhouse Friday #2 – Farmhouse Ladders

This week’s theme for Farmhouse Friday is Ladders, because as you’ll discover, they aren’t just for reaching high places anymore! Ladders work well in many styles of decor, but because of the rustic nature of vintage ladders, they are especially well-suited to farmhouse style decorating.

Introducing Knick of Time Vintage Sign Stencils!

Today is such an exciting day for me – it’s like a little dream come true. Several years ago, I was busy creating signs on a bunch of old windows I had been given, and I mentioned that “someday” I’d love to develop my own line of vintage sign stencils. Dreaming about something is all well and good, but there comes a point when you need to stop dreaming and just do it. After all, dreams rarely come true without {Read More}

Vintage Inspiration Party #185 – Spring Flowers & Farmhouse Style Decor

Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Party! If you aren’t already in a Spring mood – this week’s features will help you!  There are lots of spring flowers – both real and repurposed, as well as some wonderful farmhouse decor.

Repurposed Drawers

These 3 drawers came from a totally trashed desk that I bought about 4 years ago.  The desk is too messed up to do anything with, so I was the only bidder on it, and I never pass up old drawers that I can get a good deal on – there’s just too many great ways to reuse them.

Decor Steals Design Ingenuity Event – Boxwood Wreaths

If you’ve visited my blog for very long, you may have noticed that other than Christmas, I don’t do a lot of seasonal decorating.  I don’t switch out my pillows for different seasons, and I don’t change my mantel for every holiday.  I do love to change things up in my house, but it is’n’t usually seasonally oriented.  I prefer to decorate with things that can be displayed year-round and don’t need to be stored away after a season ends. {Read More}
