I love having wreaths on my front door, hanging on a wall or from a window.  This fall I wanted something different...I wanted to use  fabric....and it needed to be a quick and easy project. A wreath that had an old time feel to it.  To make one for yourself I'm sharing the tutorial on […]

Out Junkin

Vintage toolboxes and vintage fan

It's been a while since I've shared some of my junkin finds!  But that doesn't mean I haven't been out junkin!  Lately I've been trying to restrain myself since Mr. C has been complaining "WE HAVE NO PLACE TO PUT ALL THIS STUFF". I hate to admit it but he's right!  But how do you […]

Fall Acorns and Leaves

Harriet Hoosier On Our Deck

Hoosier Cabinet

Before our kitchen was remodeled Harriet Hoosier was a vital piece. She provided a great deal of storage in our dysfunctional layout. To be honest it always pains me to share this photo...cause it's really u.g.l.y! Prepare yourself for ugliness... OK, take a few minutes to compose yourselves...I know it was quite a shock!  If […]

Garage Sale Book Area

Whew, we'd forgotten how much work is involved in having a garage sale. For the last two weeks we worked on pulling the sale together.  Closets, dungeon, garage, kitchen nook crawlspace and every nook and cranny were cleaned out.  Books, clothes, linens and dishes were all throw in a HUGE pile waiting to be hauled […]

Sweet Potato Vine Frittata

Sweet Potato Vine Frittata

Yesterday evening I was out in the garden taking "clippings" from a "Marguerite" sweet potato vine for propagating next year's plants. While snipping the cuttings I tugged a little to hard and out popped a small tuber.  I checked out my other garden containers with sweet potato vines and found a few more. Ornamental sweet […]

An Ode To Grandma’s Apron

Vintage Apron

I have always been drawn to vintage aprons....there's a sense of connection to the woman who wore them. I thought of my Grandma's who wore them, how they looked, and how strange it was when they didn't have one on? I scored over 15 vintage aprons at the barn sale I keep mentioning ...and I […]
