Hi All, Drop me a note and let me know what else you'd like to see from me!

last month

September was so much fun! We went shopping for unique gifts, transformed a thrift shop find into a ladies custom tailored jacket, even made our own chalkboard. And of course we transform some flea market furniture , just for fun!

Catch up on last month's stories ;D

this month

It's officially Autumn! I love this time of year... cool air, rainy days, and Halloween! It's the end of flea market season, but not before one last hurrah; this time the markets are going to be full of seasonal treats, so let's scoop them up!

And with all the changes outside, let's make some changes inside! Let's start with some hand made pouf ottomans; easy and inexpensive! And then we'll tackle something a little more challenging... like a high back tufted chair makeover, and ottoman.

But we still have to decorate for Halloween! OK, how about 3 crafty Halloween decorating ideas anyone can do today: One paper, one fabric, and one paint!



next month

November brings family and friends together! Thanksgiving is a time of celebrating, entertaining, and gifting... and I'm happy to share how I'll be tackling all 3. From refurbishing vintage folding chairs for the kids table, to the perfect vintage serving ware and table decor finds, to custom menu boards for the big meal; this will be a handmade holiday! And after the meal, the perfect knitting patterns to relax with by the fire.

Coming soon ;D


Over the past few years, I've answered quite a few questions. Here are some of the most common...
