This is the evolution of a unique Patriotic door sign that no one else has! It’s certainly true that I find holiday-related items at thrift stores well before or after the actual holiday. I found this in February at my favorite thrift store for $2.99.
I discovered a vintage birdcage makes a beautiful Easter or Spring centerpiece and I couldn’t wait to show it to you!! I’ve talked about the day I found the birdcage, and I know it’s not that old, but I still liked it and it was cheap at $4. My first birdcage, grody and full of rust! My heart sang all the way home from the estate sale.
Like most folks, St. Patrick’s Day is not a big holiday around here, but I decided to show some extra love to my hubby with this project. Here’s what a blue jean leg became, and the reason it’s a little wonky is because blue jean legs are tapered. No matter, I still love how it turned out!
Silverplate, teacups, and pincushions is a project for a rainy day. I love it when I find little silverplate sugar and creamers at the thrift store! They are usually without their mates and the more ornate, the better. The tarnish gives it great patina too. They make ideal pincushions. Read on for a little tutorial.
Two reveals today: Curbside find completes the Christmas porch, and the Beatles mug reveal…who won the Chic-Fil-A gift card for coming the closest in guessing the price on the Beatles’ mug!
But before we get to that….
On my way last week to a Christmas party, I spied a pile of red wood on the side of the road.
