Gingham Christmas Wreath and Gift Cans with Video

I don’t know what it is about  gingham, but it has an old-fashioned charm that I can’t get enough of.  It reminds me of curtains hanging in an old farmhouse and vintage aprons. I bought an evergreen garland for my entryway, and had a lot left over, so I wired a leftover piece around a grapevine wreath to hang in my kitchen. I used this  gingham wired ribbon to make a bow for the wreath.  It’s easy to work with, and holds its shape {Read More}

Because I Can

I’m smack dab in the middle of raising my 4th teenager now, and there’s a standard answer he gives me when I ask why he did something. “Because I can.” Well, I’m stealing his answer today, because my tin can stash is overflowing again, so it was time to repurpose some of them, and turn them into summmerish decor. I printed a few of my vintage can labels (links to printables below) to add to the cans.  You’ll notice that these {Read More}

Antique Clock Face Printable and Tin Can Craft

I’ve been tinkering around with some of my antique clock face images, and turned them into a collage that could be used for all kinds of projects.  I never tire of tin can craft projects, and I’ve been in need of more wall organizers, so I finished a new organizer, using one of the collages, and have the free printable to share with you!

Chalkboard Kitchen Canisters and Labels – Not a Creature Was Stirring, Not Even a Mouse

Obviously, it isn’t the night before Christmas yet, because the creatures have been stirring in my pantry, and I’m not happy about it.  There’s nothing more frustrating than discovering a mouse has helped himself to foods in your pantry, and they are persistent little critters.  We live in an old house that has lots of little nooks and crannies they find their way in through.  They don’t come indoors during the summer, but in the winter, they make themselves right at {Read More}

Festive Tin Can Gift – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 10}

Let’s face it – Christmas is an expensive holiday.  It’s hard enough to buy gifts for your immediate family, but when you add on a gifts for the teachers, and a gift for the hostess of the party you’re going to, and a gift for the great aunt, who you only see once a year, it can become outrageously expensive, and your fa la la starts to fade fast when you realize how long your gift-giving list is getting.  Don’t despair – you {Read More}

Tin Cans and Texas Sky

How many empty tin cans can a person save, before they are considered a hoarder?  Whatever that number is, I think I’m getting dangerously close to reaching it.  When there are more empty cans on the shelves in the pantry than full ones, that should be a red flag that I have a tin can obsession.  I’ve been stockpiling empty tin cans for months now, knowing I wanted to make another tin can wall organizer, like the one I made to hold {Read More}

Antique Style Wooden Crate Wall Organizer from Pallet Wood

Antique Style Wooden Crate Wall Organizer from Pallet Wood My project today started out to be something totally different, but I failed, and this was my attempt at salvaging something of my failed project. I wanted an antique fruit shipping crate, complete with a beautiful label on it, but I didn’t want to pay antique store prices for it.  I had several weathered pallets, so I figured it would be easy to build my own antique style crate, right? Well, {Read More}

Repurposed Tin Cans Organizers

 Go raid your recycling bin to create some of these super cheap, super wonderful super easy containers with tin cans! I stayed up til the wee hours of the morning making mine – I’m hooked! As I’ve mentioned before, I have a stash of sheet music and antique magazines from the 1800’s and their aged look means anything I put them on will be gorgeous, so I’m always looking for more things to cover. These were cans that held cooked chicken meat, but you could use {Read More}
