Support Small Business Saturday for the Holidays: Shop Local Handmade and Vintage


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Did you know Small Business Saturday is coming up this weekend? As the small business owner of two Etsy shops, I try to support other small businesses and also to shop locally during the holidays. Last weekend I shopped two local holiday sales: Vintage Market Days and an annual church sale. I enjoyed both so much that I wanted to share them with you....

Vintage Farmhouse Christmas Sign Repurposed from a Player Piano Roll


Hi there, Friends! Many of you expressed curiosity regarding my plans for the vintage player piano roll I scored thrifting a few weeks ago. Well today I'll show you how I repurposed it as a vintage farmhouse Christmas sign and how you can create one too, using craft paper.  Oh, and if calligraphy or beautiful handwriting isn't one of your skills, no worries--it's not one of mine either! I'll show you a simple trick to fake it...

Repurposed Vintage Milk Can Snowman


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Today I'm sharing a fun project to add a little whimsy to your holiday curb appeal. Yes, I know Thanksgiving is still a week away. {If you missed my vintage Thanksgiving mantel, you can see it here.} It's one of my favorite holidays, so much so, that I'll be stepping away from the computer screen all next week to spend time with family. The thing is, I really like to savor the Christmas season which for me, means getting a head start on holiday crafts, and that brings me back to today's project. She's really too feminine to be called a snowman--isn't she sassy? Come see how I repurposed this vintage milk can and dressed her up with things I already had on hand...

Decorating with Thrifted Vintage Plates... Can I Get an Amen?


Hi there, Friends! A few weeks ago, when I shared tips for creating a beautiful home on a budget, I illustrated just how much of my decor has been upcycled from estate sale, thrift store and yard sale finds. Today, I want to show you several different ways I use thrifted vintage plates as wall art. It's an inexpensive way to add classic charm to any room...

Thriftathon Part 1: Friday's Find #222


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! As promised, today I'm sharing the first part of two posts featuring my finds from my thriftathon with Cecilia B.  Can you believe the size of this frame? I'm not one to pass on vintage frames and at 3' x 4', it's the largest I've come across thrifting. I love its curvy details and it was only $2! Stay tuned Sunday to see how I'm using it!
