Berry Basket Bookends – Functional Summer Décor

Berry Basket Bookends – Functional Summer Décor

To tell you the truth, I’m not entirely sure why I picked up these vintage berry baskets while thrifting a while back. I didn’t have a project idea in mind and the thrift store had written the price on the side of one of the baskets (the horror!). BUT…for $1.01, I was willing to take the gamble- that someday, a fun project would pop into my head. And you know what? It did!Read more ›

Vintage Firecracker Patriotic Décor

Vintage Firecracker Patriotic Décor

I’ll be perfectly honest…in the months leading up to summer, I struggled to come up with a single patriotic project idea. I bemoaned this to everyone- my husband, my friends, and my mom- but it all changed on a dime when I went to a new favorite thrift store and found this beat up old star-shaped basket.Read more ›

Modern Flower Frogs with Cheese & Sugar Shakers

Modern Flower Frogs with Cheese & Sugar Shakers

There are certain things that I always find on my thrifting adventures and yet, always pass by- and one of those used to be sugar and/or cheese shakers. I never had a fun or fresh idea for them…until recently. And once I had a vision in mind, I just couldn’t shake it (pun intended)!Read more ›

My First Makeunder: DIY Library Card Catalog

My First Makeunder: DIY Library Card Catalog

Y’all know I love me some spray paint…or any paint, for that matter. And usually when I work on a thrift store piece, it involves ADDING paint- but not this time. On one of my typical thrifting adventures, I found this mini chest of drawers. I didn’t really fancy the painted fruit “still life” that covered it, but I DID fancy the hypothesis that I could undo the paint job and make it more my style.Read more ›

Bottle Cap Coasters from Vintage Tart Tins

Bottle Cap Coasters from Vintage Tart Tins

Last Fall, the Mr. and I were perusing the shelves of a large beer & wine store when I spotted a display of oversized bottle cap coasters. I chuckled to myself because I thought it was a cute idea…and as I walked on by, I had a “Wait a second!” moment. Why? Because I could totally make those…so I snapped a photo and held onto it until now.Read more ›

Barn Style Farm Sign (and Baby Goat Day!)

Barn Style Farm Sign (and Baby Goat Day!)

While on a recent Junkin’ Journey, I found a salvaged cabinet door that just screamed BARN! Even though I wasn’t sure what I’d ultimately do with it, it was just so unique and special that I nabbed it immediately. I was, however, sure of one thing- whatever I did with it, it would have *something* to do with a farm.Read more ›

Junkin’ Journey: Richmond, Virginia

Junkin’ Journey: Richmond, Virginia

On the road again…just can’t wait to get on the road again…

Here we go again on a new Junkin’ Journey…and this time, I did more than just put a foot in Virginia like I had in Bristol. This go around, Mr. Seasongoods and I packed up the truck and headed to Richmond to explore some new territory and find the best antiques, vintage, and thrift shops around. Richmond has been on our target list for a while now…and when it came time to plan a Spring trip, we decided not to put it off any longer.Read more ›

My Upcycled Herb Garden, Part 3: Shoe Stretchers

After successfully sowing herb seeds in thrifted muffin tins…and then transplanting the seedlings into larger pots displayed on a vertical shower caddy, I’m wrapping up my three-part Upcycled Herb Garden series today! And what, pray tell, could my third part be about? Well…funny you should ask.Read more ›

Bread Basket Weaving- Farmhouse Style

Bread Basket Weaving- Farmhouse Style

Sometimes you go thrifting and find absolutely nothing…but then other times, your cart simply isn’t big enough for the bounty. Maybe the latter part is a slight exaggeration, but I did feel like I struck thrifter’s gold the other day. Or maybe thrifter’s silver is more like it! Because, my friends- someone cleaned out their grandmother’s (or mother’s) silver bread basket collection and dropped them off at the ole’ Goodwill.Read more ›
