Country Sampler Farmhouse Style Magazine Feature Plus Exciting News & a POLL!

Several months ago, I was contacted by Country Sampler magazine and they wanted to know if they could feature a few of my quilt block projects for their Farmhouse Style magazine.  It’s one of their specialty publications that my projects have been featured in several times. Here are the sections of the magazine that my projects were featured in. Below are my large barn quilt block stencils featured on wood wall decor.  You can see how I made them HERE. {Read More}

Farmhouse Metal Kitchen Wall Bins

In this post: Farmhouse Metal Kitchen Wall Bins I’ve had these  farmhouse wall bins hanging in my living room for four years seen HERE. We replaced our thermostat with a Nest thermostat last year leaving screw holes and chunk out of the wallpaper. This year we’ll cover the Bible Page Wallpaper in the living room with tongue and groove wood like we have in the kitchen and bathroom so the wall bins needed to come down. After a while you stop noticing {Read More}

Talk of the Town #157

Can we all agree that winter stinks? 🙂 If it weren’t for Christmas, I would happily skip this season altogether. We got dumped on with about 10″ of snow last weekend.  It was beautiful, but on top all that, my husband, son, and I have been sick.  BLAH!

Home Key Hook | Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys

In this post: A Home Key Hook because Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys A few months ago, my husband asked if I would make a key hook.  That was a very reasonable request since he hangs his keys with the measuring spoons and I go on a goose chase to find where I put mine. I was in the midst of my 15 Days of Chalking projects, so I didn’t have time to do it just then.  But then {Read More}

Talk of the Town #156

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’ve been battling a cold for several days which has kicked my productivity to the curb.  I can’t wait to get over this dumb cold so I can sleep and breath better … and most of all to get back to making things.

2018 Year in Review

In this post: A 2018 Year in Review I’ve got to admit that 2018 has probably been one of the toughest years of my life.  I spent the first few months going to therapies after my stroke.  In other ways, it was a really good year. Now on to a round-up of my posts and projects. In January, I shared a Repurposed Window Stocking Hanger that I wasn’t able to share in December due to the stroke. I also shared {Read More}

Repurposed Tape Measure DIY Projects

In this post: Repurposed Tape Measure DIY Projects One of the things that I keep my eye out for at antique stores is old tape measures.  They usually come on spools with a small handle on the side that winds the tape measure inside the spool.  I’ve come across a few of them and always buy them if the price is reasonable. The projects below are actually a repost that I did quite a few years ago. When I updated my {Read More}

Tea Towel Display Shelf Christmas Upcycle

In this post: A Tea Towel Display Shelf Christmas Upcycle We’ve been cleaning out the living room in preparation for the crowd that will be here for Christmas.  One of the things that went away with the purge is my antique piano turned into a desk.  Honestly, I wasn’t using it as a desk because I do almost all of my work in my bathtub on my bathtub tray table or the farmhouse kitchen table.  Don’t be shocked, but I asked my husband {Read More}
