Sparkling Snowflake Christmas Ornament

I know the calendar just moved over to fall, but it’s never too early to start planning for Christmas, especially if you like to craft. I am participating in an amazing event called the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments.  31 Bloggers will share a handmade ornament each day of October.  That means a collection […]

DIY Faux Succulent Wreath made with Paper

A few weeks ago my friend, Nicole, invited a few ladies over to her home for a craft night.  Nicole ordered a variety of wreath kits from Paper Source.  After we each picked a wreath kit to make, we enjoyed delicious appetizers and listened to 80’s music while we crafted the night away. I chose […]

Fall Door Decor – DIY Crow

It is finally starting to look and feel like fall in my area.  It’s still been blazing hot but the mornings have had a hint of cool in the air giving us a taste of what is to come.  Over the weekend I had some time for a DIY project, my first since going back […]

Vintage Ladle Upcycle – Farmhouse Style

My farmhouse friends and I are back with another round of farmhouse inspired projects. Farmhouse style can be interpreted many ways and I loved the projects shared last month.  If you missed last month, I shared how I used a vintage window from Black Dog Salvage to frame Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazine covers […]

Patriotic Flower Vases – Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge

Last month a group of bloggers joined together for a monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. Last month I shared how I gave a wooden knitting basket a makeover.  This month I’m sharing Patriotic Flower Vases made with three florist vases. Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item found […]

Wooden Rabbit Makeover

Last summer I spotted a cute wooden rabbit at Goodwill and couldn’t resist buying him for just $.99.  He’s been waiting seven months for a makeover and it’s finally happened.  Keep reading because he’s got a new look!   It’s my guess that someone bought this at a craft show long ago or perhaps their […]

Dollar Store Inspired Valentine’s Day Pillows

Decorating for the season and for holidays is one of my favorite past times.  Not only do I enjoy decorating my home, I also like to decorate my porch.  Felt hearts purchased from the dollar store inspired me to make two Valentine’s Day Pillows to use on my enclosed porch. Usually I use drop cloths […]

Flatware Box Makeover

  A few months ago I stumbled across a flatware box at Goodwill and couldn’t resist buying it for just $2.  I had admired flatware boxes that my friends Christy from Confessions of a Serial-Do-It-Yourselfer and Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rules had made over and I was eager to see what I could do with […]

DIY Mitten Art with Buttons

  Ooh, burr baby!  Is it cold where you live?  It should be here but it’s not.  Just looking at the mitten art that I created with vintage buttons has me looking forward to crisp air, thick sweaters, and snuggling under a blanket by a fire with a warm beverage in my hand.  I’m sure […]

Sparkly Christmas Reindeer

I have charged full steam ahead into the Christmas season!  This week I’ve shared our porch and outdoor Christmas decorations, my front door wreath, and an auction and giveaway to benefit Samaritan’s Purse. I like to use vintage Christmas in my decor but I also enjoy crafting items as well.  I made three Sparkly Christmas Reindeer […]
