Vintage Waterscape Gallery Wall

Happy Wednesday!

Vintage Waterscape Gallery Wall

I love to find vintage goods at thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales. It is one of my most favorite past times! I am often on the look out for interesting items to fill my Etsy shop.

I accumulated these three painting at different times over the Summer & Fall. My intention was to add them to my shop, but I kept setting them aside holding off on posting them.

I was working on some photos last week for a shop update and again was having a hard time including them in my shop items. I decided I would put them together on the wall to see if I liked them.

I have to say that I love them together!
I love the colors and eclectic vintage mix.

Happy Monday!

Vintage Crate Shelves

Have I told you before how much I love finding a new use for old things? One of my favorite things to find from thrift stores, flea markets and yard sales are old wooden crates. Size or shape does not matter! I always find a use for a good old crate!

Vintage Crate Shelves

When putting our “all purpose” room together I wanted to display some of my eclectic collections. I thought that using a few of the various crates I had accumulated would be a fun way to do this.

My little helper wanted to smile for you all!

The shelves are full of so many things I love! Old tin, crayons, milk glass, heart stones, old books… so many things!

Simple Fun with Crayons

Happy Friday!

Our little guy loves to help around the house! He loves to help with cooking, cleaning, and laundry. I try my best to do little crafty projects with him from time to time so that he get get messy doing what I love!

He also loves, loves playing with his toy cars. Semi trucks and police cars are especially his favorite to play with. When I came across this silicone car mold I knew we would have fun with it.

He could easily help with taking off the crayon wrappers, sorting the colors, breaking them into pieces, and then filling the mold.

After they were done melting and cooling he had fun coloring and then lining them all up.

Favorite Thrift Find

Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to share today one of my favorite thrift finds!

I have been on the look out for an owl cookie jar for quite a while now. I had searched Etsy over and over for one, but they were always too expensive for my taste.

Then I found this…

for this price…!

I was somewhat giddy with excitement! I couldn’t believe that what I had been looking for was right there for that price!

 IMG_20141112_135724_270

Just another one of the many reasons why I love thrifting!

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend?

It was a cold snowy weekend here in Michigan! The kind that make you just want to stay inside. Which is exactly what we did all weekend!

No shame in being homebodies! My introverted ways actually need full weekends at home once in awhile.

Have I ever shared how much I love to repurpose things into something new? simple shutter organizer

After hosting the Let’s Create! Jewelry Organizer Event, I had a a handful of door knobs still in my crafting supplies and needed a use for them.

I painted up a couple old shutters and added an assortment of knobs to them. I made one for me and a friend wanted one for her entry way too.

I love how they both turned out!

I hung mine by the back entrance coming into our kitchen.

It has been a great landing place as we unload coming into the house.

We use it everyday!
