Pastoral Farmhouse Antique Thanksgiving Postcards

Over the weekend, my daughter and I went on a quick road trip.  Along the way we made a few stops along the Spoon River Drive.  It’s a yearly fall festival that I’ve attended since I was a child. The fall scenery along the route is beautiful and many of the stops have vendor booths. One of the booths I visited had boxes full of antique postcards.  I wish I had time to look through all of them, but they were {Read More}


  I know everyone in the US is getting ready for Thanksgiving, and I am too, but I wanted to show you  a few projects created by some of my readers, using my Mrs. Claus Cookie Co. printable that I shared last year. This adorable baking theme tree was created by Heidi, one of my Facebook readers, and she used the printable to make a charming ornament.  Isn’t it adorable?! And Holly at Coconut Head’s Survival Guide used it inside this {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}

Thanksgiving Printable Place Cards

With Thanksgiving only a little over a week away, I created some pretty place cards that can be personalized with your guest’s names, and there is a place on the back for each person to write what they are thankful for.  Even if you don’t have company coming over to share a Thanksgiving meal, these could also be used with your children, making them a nice keepsake to remember what they were thankful for, and to help them remember that {Read More}

Rustic Burlap Banner Printables & a Horse Buggy Shaft

I had planned to share another another Photography Friday today, but it’s been rainy and overcast the last several days, so I’ll wait until the weather clears up, and I can shoot photos outdoors.  I do have another project to share with you though. My son asked me why I had printed burlap fabric images on paper.  If you wondered why in the world I shared burlap, cork and cardboard texture printables a few days ago, here are my 3 best {Read More}

Prayer of Thanksgiving – Hymn Book Page

Those of you with grown kids know how difficult it can be to get everyone together for the holidays, but it’s a first for me as a parent. One of my sons couldn’t get off work during his college Thanksgiving break, so my husband and I are going out to eat with my other 3 kids on Wednesday, then I’ll hit the road with the kids and we’ll spend Thanksgiving with my oldest son.  My husband has to work the {Read More}

Harvest Party…It All Started with Root Beer

It looks like I’m having a Harvest Party, but I’m not… and it’s all because of some root beer bottles. A few weeks ago, my daughter had a few friends over for a movie night.  My husband and I had been out of town for a few days, and when we came home, the table was filled with junk food and there was a counter full of empty glass soda bottles.  She knows I love bottles, so they didn’t throw {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Thanksgiving Day Song

This Thanksgiving song is from an antique children’s song book called, “The Music Hour” These pages are amazingly white, given their age, but I like old-looking pages, so here it is with an aged color tone. More free Thanksgiving printables are HERE.

Itty Bitty Banners

Last week, a customer purchased the old orange tool box that I showed you recently with the word “HOME” on the front of it, but she also wanted the word “AUTUMN” added.  I didn’t have a stencil to match that word,so the fonts would have been to different.  I suggested we go a different route instead and I created an itty bitty banner that she could hang from inside the lid, or any other little space she wanted. Using banners this small, you can create petite {Read More}

Create a Thanksgiving Banner with Printable Antique Bible Page

View Verse of the Day I’m still on a roll creating banners with old book pages and have a few more I plan to design soon, but I wanted to share the most recent one with you, and provide you with a printable so you can easily create your own, with whatever word(s) you want on it. I love the look of old book pages, so I choose antique Bible pages and used a stencil for both the “frame” and {Read More}
