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 ›

Pure Whimsy- Cottage Style Spring Décor

Pure Whimsy- Cottage Style Spring Décor

I have to be honest with you- I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately. It happens sometimes- I get into a DIY funk…my creativity fizzles out…and I feel a little lost. Invariably, I head into my garage or Craft Room to do some tidying up and rearranging when this happens. Why? Because I usually unearth something long forgotten and it’s the shot in the arm that I need to get back in the proverbial (crafting) saddle!Read more ›

Repurposed Vintage Doily Project Ideas

Repurposed Vintage Doily Project Ideas

What is it about a vintage doily that make it so attractive to play around with? All I know is that that: (1) vintage doilies are beautiful, (2) they’re abundant, and (3) they are full of project potential! Whether you just display them…or use them to embellish something…or truly repurpose them, they are a favorite of mine- and I suspect, a favorite of many of you, as well. As for me? Well, I’ve been known to use them in multiple projects…Read more ›

My Upcycled Herb Garden, Part 2: Shower Caddy

My Upcycled Herb Garden, Part 2: Shower Caddy

Last month, I introduced my three-part upcycled herb garden series with Part 1- by sowing herb seeds in rusty, thrifted muffin tins / pans as starter pots! But several weeks have since passed and it’s time to bring you Part 2, which involves another repurposed thrift store find…Read more ›

“Ensconced” Organization for Gardening Tools

“Ensconced” Organization for Gardening Tools

A couple of years ago, I made a simple repurposed clip board for our gardening/work gloves– both of us had a bad habit of flinging them off in the garage and struggling to find them the next time we needed to wear them! And let me tell you- having the clip board has been a life (and glove) saver! So, when I found these outdated bucket sconces at a thrift store, I decided make something similar for my gardening hand tools.Read more ›

Upcycling Alchemy: Turning Fiber Baskets into “Metal”

Upcycling Alchemy: Turning Fiber Baskets into “Metal”

Ok, I have to admit- after the exciting results from my DIY Windmill Project, I became obsessed with the spray paint I used. And so, while this newest project isn’t exactly complicated- it’s one of those “DUH!” projects that is ridiculously simple, but warrants a post nonetheless.Read more ›

My Upcycled Herb Garden, Part 1: Muffin Pans

My Upcycled Herb Garden, Part 1: Muffin Pans

Real Life Confession- I love the idea of gardening more than I love actual gardening. Can anyone else relate? I also look forward to summer Saturday mornings with girlfriends as we bop from farmer’s market to farmer’s market.

BUT. But…I still enjoy having planted herbs around as the weather warms up! So, this year, I’ve decided to do a three-part herb gardening upcycling series…starting with today’s post: Part 1- Muffin tins!Read more ›
