Picnic Basket Lid Gets a New Purpose!

Back in October when my mom was visiting, we stopped at a yard sale on our way to a family reunion, where I bought an old picnic basket. I had planned to make a cute gingham liner for it, something like this one, (affiliate) and use it to hold magazines. But we were in a hurry, and I didn’t take time to look it over carefully before I bought it, and later discovered that the wood was broken in several places, {Read More}

Valentine DIY Projects: Farmhouse Friday

Valentines Day… do you decorate for it, or not?  I’m kind of lazy when it comes to Valentines Day, so the only time I make new Valentine projects is if I find something easy, and it fits in with the rest of my farmhouse decor.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for all the sweet comments that were left about my entryway remodel, and to give you a little personal update. If you recall, my parents came to visit back in October, and while here, my dad fell and broke his hip, and spent almost two weeks in the hospital before they could return home. Once home, he was doing pretty well, but then he came down with what the doctors {Read More}

Spice Rack Makeover: Thrift Shop Flip

I’ve said before that I’m a sucker for gingham, so when I spotted this vintage spice rack, filled with jars that had gingham lids, at a thrift store – it was a given that it was coming home with me.   I wasn’t crazy about the color of the wood, and it looked a bit blah, but the shape reminded me of the wall shelf I made over last year with a Milk & Cream Co. image on it, so {Read More}
