it is well with my soul sign stencil

Happy weekend everyone! I have a new sign stencil to introduce in my line that I hope you’ll love. One of my most popular free images is the It is Well with My Soul photograph (download HERE), so I wanted to make an inspirational sign stencil with the same title. I used the stencil on this pallet wood coat hook, and love how it turned out, so I want to show  you how super easy it is to make one of {Read More}

How to Make a Farmhouse Milk Can Patio Table

If you recall, a few weeks ago I was contemplating what to do with this old milk can that’s been sitting on my front patio. I thought about painting the whole thing, but it’s pretty rusty and I it has just a bit of old blue paint on it that I really loved and hated to cover up. Then I thought about just using the Milk and Cream stencil to paint just a sign on the front.  I think it would have {Read More}

Antique Window Framed Flag Display

There is a big blank space on one side of our barn where I plan to make and hang another barn quilt, but when I found a retired flag at a thrift store, I decided to make a flag display to hang there during the summer months.  I still have quite a few antique windows in my stash, and I found one that was the perfect size for the flag. I love how the colors in the flag coordinate so well with the {Read More}

Hello World and an Old White Barn

I have a lot of readers that don’t live in the United States, and I need to apologize to all of them! It wasn’t until a reader commented that she wished my stencils were available to non-US residents, that I realized that I had discriminated against you all, because all my stencil listings were only set up for US shipment.  It’s a great big world out there, and I want people to enjoy my stencils all over the map! (free {Read More}

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God – Printable Antique Sheet Music

I love it when Scripture is set to music, and this sheet music page, “The Heavens Declare the Glory of God” is lovely.  It came from a mid-1920’s magazine for musicians. {Click HERE{ for the full-size printable version.} Psalm 19:1-7 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.  Their line is gone {Read More}

Tabletop Industrial Cart

One thing often leads to another, but in my case, it can lead to another, and another, and another. Do you remember the little clementine box that I turned into a vintage style crate? Recently I added some vintage style signage  to it, and I loved it even more. Well, I set that little crate on my kitchen shelf, and as I looked at it, it made me think of something I would really, really, really love to have… an old industrial cart.  I {Read More}

4th of July Red White and Blue Patriotic Decor

With July 4th just around the corner, it’s time to deck the farmhouse with patriotic decor!  I’ll admit, I do very little holiday decorating, other than Christmas, so choosing this theme was a stretch for me, but not only did I come up with a new project, I have 20+ more patriotic projects by other bloggers that I think you’ll love! If you missed any of the previous Farmhouse Friday themes, you can find them all HERE. For my project, I used {Read More}

Stenciled Drop Cloth Pillow and Down Time

My stencil sales have been coming in at a somewhat slow and steady pace, which was fine, because it was a pace I could keep up with.  Then BAM, as soon as I introduced the Milk & Cream Co. stencil design, orders started pouring in.  I wasn’t prepared to get so many orders so quickly and I spent the weekend up to my ears in Milk and Cream. Of course, that’s a very good thing, but by yesterday I was exhausted, and in dire need of {Read More}
