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

last 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 thrifting for the perfect vintage serving ware and table decor finds, to scoring some handmade custom menu boards for the big meal! We tackled some upcycling projects; refurbishing vintage folding chairs for the kids table, and some double duty ottoman table/seating solutions. Finally, we got a jump on holiday gifts with some of my favorite free knitting patterns.

Catch up on last month's stories ;D

There are so many reasons to celebrate in December! For my family, it's Christmas...and with any luck it will be a snowy one. But whatever your faith or traditions; if you love vintage, handmade, and upcycled, you won't want to miss these projects! From decorating with attic finds, to hosting family and friends, to gifting handmade, we'll do the holidays in style!
