DIY Farmhouse Wood Bead Garland

Today I'm going to talk about how I transformed an oversized, vintage wooden wall art rosary into a DIY Farmhouse Wood Bead Garland. Wood bead garlands are a popular farmhouse decor item that have been in vogue for a good while, and I've always wanted one for myself. 

"What's a wall art rosary?" you ask. Well, it's a rosary that's been super-sized, so much so that it can actually function as serious wall decor. "What's a farmhouse wood bead garland?" you ask. Well, stick with me and I'll show you how I managed to maintain the integrity of the rosary while updating it in such a way that it works for me, farmhouse-decor-loving-gal that I am. Today I'm going to share how I did it, along with some other projects from my awesome blogger friends as part of our monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge.

Do you have a favorite flower? I have two favorite flowers, one of which is peonies. A few years ago I planted a peony bush and forgot all about it. Despite my total indifference and neglect it has apparently chosen to thrive. Lucky me! So all I have to worry about is which vase to display the blooms in.

Thrill of the Hunt #49: Christmas in June?

June 2, 2017



It seems like every week I make a joke about how vintage Christmas tchotchkes find me wherever I go. And this week is no different! More specifically, it's Santa Claus, in various forms, that I've been stumbling across. You might remember that some classic looking Santas were painted on collectible Coca-Cola glassware, while many others were made of porcelain. Guess what kind I found this week?
