DIY Candlesticks Using Upcycled Bedposts

I am thrilled with my latest DIY project! Back in June I spotted a few bedposts in a trash pile that were quite pretty.  I used those bedposts to create candlesticks holders for our lake house fireplace. Today is our monthly Power Tool Challenge, so be sure to check out the projects that my friends […]

Vintage Inspired Fall Decor

How to Clean a Vintage Cross Stitch

Earlier this week I shared the “Hokie Corner” that I created in our family room using vintage Virginia Tech memorabilia. A Virginia Tech football cross stitch that my grandmother made back in the 1980’s is one piece that I used in my display.  The cross stitch had gotten quite dirty over the years, especially since it […]

Vintage Virginia Tech Memorabilia

It’s been a while since I shared a Vintage Monday post.  Today’s Vintage Monday is about Vintage Virginia Tech Memorabilia.   I am a Hokie, as was my dad, aunt and uncle.  I’m not a die-hard sports fan like my dad was, or my aunt and uncle still are, but I can’t help but cheer […]

Vintage Monday–Oyster Cans

Welcome to Vintage Monday.  Today’s topic is Vintage Oyster Cans.   My mom used to own a beach cottage and part of her kitchen décor included these oyster cans.  She grouped them on top of her kitchen cabinets along with large shells and mason jars filled with sand and shells.  It was a pretty display […]

Vintage Costume Jewelry

Today’s Vintage Monday features vintage costume jewelry. The pieces that I’m sharing belonged to my grandmother, great-great aunt who raised my grandmother, and my cousin’s grandmother.  I don’t know the age of these pieces but would guess they are from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. I’m starting with this pin and clip earring set because […]

Vintage Monday–1943 Posters

If you are new here, Vintage Monday is an occasional series where I share vintage things that I’ve inherited […]

Vintage Monday–Farmhouse Style

Our neighbors are in the process of moving and have been kind enough to share some of their no longer needed vintage things with me.  I love vintage and am more than happy to give their things a home.  What they gave to me is what I’d call farmhouse style. I started Vintage Monday last […]
