Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

I’ve hinted at it on Facebook…and again in my Best of 2016 post- the idea of cabin-themed projects this year. My in-laws are putting the finishing touches on a cabin in the North Georgia mountains- which means I get to add a new facet to my blog! Whether decorative, functional, or both, I will periodically do cabin-themed projects…and when the cabin is done and ready, I’ll be sure to start including links and pictures so you can see it!Read more ›

What on Hearth: Cozy Fireplace Décor

What on Hearth: Cozy Fireplace Décor

Here we are- in JANUARY- with the holidays behind us and a new year before us. And as a blogger, DIY/Repurposed décor projects during the winter months are tough…winter decorating during the often bleak days of January and February presents unique challenges. So, I decided to revisit an old favorite- flannel- with a new project…and it just so happens to be my January contribution to The Good Life blog, as well.Read more ›

Craft Junk Giveaway (January 2017)

Craft Junk Giveaway (January 2017)

Late last year, I noticed that one of my favorite blogs (Petticoat Junktion) was doing a giveaway of “Craft Stuff”. She had assembled several boxes full of craft supplies and other bits from her workshop. That’s when it dawned on me…I SHOULD DO THE SAME THING IN JANUARY!

So Charming: Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet

So Charming: Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet

Oh my gosh, it’s January already- how is that even possible? Happy 2017! And to start the new year off right, I’m doing it with sparkles.

I had seen versions of this idea floating around on Pinterest and just KNEW I had to make my own. I’ll be the first to admit that I actually prefer vintage rhinestone ANYTHING over real diamonds- crazy, I know! Anyway, this is wonderfully easy to make…the hardest part is actually collecting the vintage rhinestone buttons! But over time, I gathered a handful of pretties in different shapes and sizes. The common denominator (other than rhinestones, of course) is that they were all shank buttons.

Reader’s Choice 2016: Your Favorite Sadie Seasongoods Projects

Reader’s Choice 2016: Your Favorite Sadie Seasongoods Projects

Like a bull in a china shop…

Especially when “the world” is the china shop and “ 2016 ” is the bull! It’s been a rough-and-tumble year for many folks across the globe and I suspect that there are more than a few of us that are happy to bid farewell to such a pummeling year.

But there were a few bright spots (for me)- like the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series- and yet another tremendously satisfying year of blogging. Even when the world seems like a dark, dark place…the light in my workshop flickers to life and I can repurpose-DIY-upcycle-create through it all. And then I get to share it with you! (Both the hits AND the misses, haha!)Read more ›

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Back in January of this year, I was thrifting at my local Habitat ReStore and spotted a spinning photo frame that was in excellent condition. I was fresh off a Christmas high, with several “coulda, shoulda, woulda” holiday project ideas bouncing around in my head. But it was January and time to move on, right?

Nope. I put the frame in my cart and filed away this Christmas idea for a later time…and finally, FINALLY, that time is now.Read more ›

Deck the Halls…with Repurposed Ornaments

Deck the Halls…with Repurposed Ornaments

As a December 26th baby, I feel a special connection to Christmas- even if a birthday at this time of year is pretty underwhelming. Coupled with my love of repurposing and upcycling, it should come as no surprise to anyone that combining the two- Repurpose/Christmas- is something I look forward to each year. And while I haven’t done that many of them, repurposed ornaments are an exceptional favorite. I’ve made DIY snowball ornaments from thrifted glass balls…pretty painted “icicles” from vintage spindles…wreaths from mason jar lids…and this year’s favorite, tea strainer / chandelier crystal ornaments.Read more ›
