Inexpensive Rustic Fall Centerpiece – Home for Fall

Every year at this time, I have to wear blinders when I go into stores, because we have lots of fall and winter birthdays in our family, and if I hope to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table and have any presents under the tree, I can’t spend money on ready-made decor. So when I found out that Hometalk was hosting a “Home for Fall” blog hop, I wanted to participate, but I challenged myself to do it without buying a single {Read More}

Vintage Grocery Hanging Scale Clock

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile how much I love using vintage pieces in my home.  I used to find most of my pieces at auctions, but I haven’t had much time to go to them lately, and the few I went to turned out to be duds.  

Farmhouse Friday – Farmhouse Cabinets, Cupboards and Shelves

  As I was sitting at my kitchen table, brainstorming the theme for this week’s edition of Farmhouse Friday, I looked up, and it was staring me right in the face! I saw my Upcycled Farmhouse Cabinet, and realized that I’ve made a lot of cabinets, cupboards and shelves, and since those are things every home needs, it would make a great theme.

Just a Thank You

Just a quick note to thank you all for your sweet comments and encouragement the last week about my dad being in the hospital.  I don’t always have time to respond back to every comment, but I do want you to know I read each and every one of them, and they mean so much to me! My dad got out of the hospital today, and tomorrow I’ll pick up my niece at the train depot.  On Saturday, they’ll hit {Read More}

Chippy Door and Salvaged Hardware Wall Hook

I finished a quickie little project today, which is all I’ve had time or energy for lately, between my dad being in the hospital and having bronchitis.  The good news is, my dad is supposed to get released from the hospital tomorrow.  He is chomping at the bit to get out and get back home. I’m feeling a bit better after finishing my antibiotics, but the persistent cough wears me out and the doctor said it could take a month {Read More}

Upcycled Wood Frame Handled Tray

I’ve been in a bit of a creative shlump lately.  What I really want to do is finish up my entryway, but my husband needed to bring home more pallets and hang the boards on the walls, and I had a hard time thinking beyond that. I decided to roam out to my workshop (AKA “the PIT”).  Venturing in there is a risky idea, because it’s filled to the rafters with junk.  I can seriously barely find a place to step, {Read More}

Farmhouse Friday – Primitive Decor

Happy Farmhouse Friday to you!  Thanks to all of you who left sweet and understanding comments about rotten attitude yesterday.  When I went back and reread my post later, my attitude seemed even more silly.  It’s a sunny, beautiful day today, and my outlook is so much better.  I’ve always know gray, dreary days affected my mood – I just wish I could stay home on those days, so I’m not out finding fault with everyone I cross paths with! 🙂 Okay…back {Read More}

Stinkin’ Rotten

Do you ever have one of those days when you just aren’t fit to be around people? You  have a stinkin’ rotten attitude, and you know it, and quite honestly, you just don’t care. Yeah…I was having one of those days… First of all, I didn’t feel like teaching the writing class for homeschool kids that I had signed up to teach.  I’ve been running around all week, and really just wanted to stay home. Was that a good reason {Read More}

Entryway Makeover Progress

Things were going wonderful on our entryway makeover. My husband had brought home a trailer full of pallets. He cut them all apart, and got 2 walls in the entryway done.  He made me a built in cabinet to store paint that I use frequently, and I was loving it. It was the pallet wood entryway of my dreams…
