Santa’s Naughty List Christmas Elf Time Out Chair

Santa’s Naughty List Christmas Elf Time Out Chair Sometimes you have to be at the right place at the right time, right? You see, as soon as I spotted this little child’s chair, I knew it was meant for me to find it. Even though it had an old unappealing finish, the $3.99 price tag was well worth it for such a sturdy little chair. I had cute plans for it!

Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece With Vintage Kitchenware

Christmas Baking Kitchen Centerpiece Last week, my husband and I needed to go to another town to pick up a car cooler for his semi-truck. While there, he took me to an antique store where I spotted two antique sifters and a loaf pan in the same booth. They were very reasonably priced, so I bought all four. Both of the sifters are Bromwell’s. But the sifter with the red wooden handle is my favorite. I love all vintage loaf {Read More}

Hot Cocoa Station Christmas Tote with Cans

Hot Cocoa Station Christmas Tote with Cans As a child I used to love going to the mall during the Christmas season. Seeing everything decorated like the North Pole and a snowy forest made me so happy. Walking down the candy cane pathway to sit on Santa’s lap seemed magical. Today’s project is almost as fun! It’s made from some of my tin can stash.  I always have a bunch to work with.  Just can’t throw out those cans when they have so {Read More}

Easy DIY Signs and a Painting Tip

Easy DIY Signs and Pennant Banner Ideas I love living in the country, but sometimes it gets kind of lonely. Since my husband was gone all week, rather than just binge-watch shows on Netflix or talk to our dog, I decided to do something more constructive.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree Farm Repurposed Drawer

How to Create Farmhouse Christmas Decor from an Old Drawer After finishing the repurposed Christmas cabinet door, I moved on to another repurposing project. This time, a drawer for Christmas. I’ve been busy clearing out unused stuff, donating a lot and repurposing or upcycling what I can.

Farmhouse Christmas Cabinet Door Sign

But craft stores are already discounting fall items and bringing in Christmas decor, so that tells me I need to start stocking my Etsy shop with Christmas items too.  That’s why you will be seeing Christmas projects popping up here on the blog.

Cheese Cloche Upcycled Into Mini Pumpkin Patch

There are certain things that I always find at thrift stores.  Nearly every time I go, I find a cheese cloche or dome tray. What do you call them? After pondering what to do with one I found several months ago, I finally knew what I would do with it. A centerpiece for fall or winter. And I set out to do just that!

Small Side Table Upcyled In Black and White Buffalo Check

Small Side Table Upcyled in Black and White Buffalo Check Do you ever buy furniture at thrift stores or yard sales?  I don’t often, but when I found  a pair of these small side tables at a thrift store for $15 for the set, I couldn’t pass them up. Clearly, the previous owners have kids because they had dried food all over them. As a mom of four, no judgement here! After cleaning really well, it was time to transform {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}
