These particular finds were snagged up pre-Coronavirus so I'm glad I had them in my stash to share. I even have a new collection I'm excited to share so let's get started!

Farmhouse Coffee Table Transformation

July 6, 2020



Welcome to my farmhouse coffee table transformation -- I'm so glad you're here! I've already written about the fact that our daughters are heading back to college in August. One is moving into a house and the other into an apartment. We've been on the hunt for furniture for both girls and today I'm sharing the first of two pieces of furniture we transformed for our oldest daughter's house -- an inherited oval coffee table.

 I've never been one for major 4th of July decor. Maybe a 4th of July wreath, or 4th of July cupcakes -- but that's about it. Today I have to confess to actually enjoying putting together a vintage-inspired 4th of July fireplace mantel vignette. It was simple and classic and inexpensive and I love it. 

Thrifted Pine Dresser Transformation

June 25, 2020


Even in uncertain times like these, we still need to prepare for the future as best we can. And if you have a college student at home,  you might not have a clue as to what the upcoming fall semester will look like for them. Regardless of the uncertainty, those apartments, campus houses and dorm rooms still need to be furnished and stocked with the necessities to get the kids through -- no matter what happens.

June 21, 2020

I've always been a HUGE topiary fan. I have tons of faux topiaries all over my house -- all thrifted, of course -- but they are so expensive everywhere else! I've even DIY'd a faux boxwood topiary with great success. Years ago I had a live ivy topiary I grew and trained myself. It made me happy. And recently, I realized that it was time to try again and that I had the perfect topiary frame to do it with. You might be surprised to learn what I used.

June 15, 2020

While I don't blog about it anymore, I'm a jewelry designer. As a matter of fact, that's how my blog began -- as a way to showcase my vintage jewelry designs. I even sold my jewelry in an Etsy shop. You might say I had a real passion for it. But somewhere along the line it took a back seat to, well, life, and the blog went more in the direction of vintage finds and thrifty DIY home decor. But I recently got the itch to create and can't wait to share my most recent design with you, as well as a few tips for those of you who think you might want to try your hand at jewelry making (and even those of you who don't -- you never know until you try, right?)
