Wedding + More 1920’s Flower Printables

It’s been a wonderful and busy weekend for our family.  My daughter’s life-long best friend got married, and my daughter was her maid of honor. They’ve been friends since they  were about 6 years old, and have been by each other’s sides ever since, so it was such a joy for me to watch my daughter get to stand by her friend’s side for the most special day in her life. My middle son was able to come home with his {Read More}

seed packet printables & shop talk

In between working on several new projects on Monday, I kept running out to the mailbox – waiting to see if the mailman had brought some beautiful antique seed packets I ordered. If there was a “who has the brownest thumb in the world” contest, I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender, but I still adore flowers and anything with flowers on them, so I had to buy these seed packs. They are originals from an early 1900’s seed store, and the images {Read More}

Flower Seed Packets Home Sign – Hometalk’s DIY My Spring

The minute the calendar flips to March, I start chomping at the bit for sunshine, green grass and fresh flowers.   It’s still too chilly for an outdoor project, so I brainstormed a bit and came up with something that would usher Spring indoors until the weather catches up with me, and here’s what I came up with… Flower Seed Packets Home Sign To create it, I removed the frame from my Autumn Coat Rack Sign.  The frame is easy {Read More}

A Little Spring on a Drink Bottle

A Little Spring on a Drink Bottle Good morning everyone!  I don’t usually share my posts first thing in the morning, but I didn’t have the post finished yesterday, so I figured I would try being an early bird for once. 🙂  For those of you who are night owls like myself, don’t worry, I’ll be back to my evening posting schedule tonight. So, how’s the weather in your neck of the woods?  The end of February and all of March {Read More}

The Good Old-Fashioned Way

I don’t know about you all, but with the events of the last 24 hours in France, I just want to yell, “Stop the world, I want to get off!” I know the it’s probably naive the thing that the “old days” were any better than today, but I think most of us, myself included, crave  old-fashioned values, and a whole lot less bad news. I came across this hymn from the early 1900’s called, “The Good Old-Fashioned Way”, and I just had {Read More}

My Weekend and a Thanksgiving Song Printable

Thanks to all of you who left sweet comments about my little toy sleigh (and fake “snow”! Two of my sons, and their girlfriends participated in a “Color Run” in Little Rock this weekend, so I drove down with my oldest son to watch them. It’s a long drive, but it was so nice to take the weekend off and just relax. I even resisted the urge to bring any kind of project with me to work on, so I would have no {Read More}

Never Say Never

Early last week, my oldest son came down with a cold.  He and my youngest son seem to be magnets for every cold that goes around, but I can’t remember the last time I got sick.  I even bragged a bit to my mom that I never get sick. Well, I’m eating my words now, because within 24 hours, I was sick too. Within the next couple of days, my son was better, but I was sneezing and coughing up {Read More}

Halloween Sheet Music

Sometimes life throws you a curveball, and this was a curveball kind of week. As I mentioned recently, my parents are here for a two-week visit, but they left for a few days to visit other extended family.  When they returned back to my house last night, my dad tripped over one of our dogs and fell on the concrete right outside my door.  I called for an ambulance and he was taken to the ER.

Weekending – Hand Lettering and Sketching

I have a serious crush on hand lettering and sketching, and am in awe of those who are gifted with such talent. This is a public domain studio book of hand lettering that has over 250 pages.  If you love hand letterering, it’s a must see! The lettering and fall theme of this lettered page on paper is so pretty in this autumn vignette via Vibeke Design. I discovered an online shop, called Hand Lettering Company. They have an amazing line of {Read More}

Vintage Owls Image

I’m on a bit of a milk cap kick lately, and each month I’m a contributor at My Repurposed Life where I’m sharing how I turned some of my collection of caps into kitchen wall art that does double duty as refrigerator magnets. Pop over and visit me there for the tutorial! This book plate showing 2 kinds of owls is from the same 1920’s book as some other bird images I’ve shared in the past, and has 2 owls – a {Read More}
