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 ›

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 ›

The DIY Garden Gatherer: A Sling for Blooms

The DIY Garden Gatherer: A Sling for Blooms

Spring fever has definitely hit our house- every weekend, we’re working in the yard and getting our garden beds prepped for a summer of homegrown veggies and fruits. Flowering trees are losing their blossoms as tender green leaves push their way forward- watching the ebb and flow of seasons is truly magnificent.

And now that I’ve recapped last year’s Yard & Garden upcycling projects, I can focus on outdoor projects for Spring 2015!Read more ›

Maybe it’s the warmer weather…or maybe it’s the yards in bloom, but I’ve been on SUCH a vintage bed sheet (covered in flowers, of course) kick lately.

I love using sheets in projects, and decided to pair up my vintage sheet obsession with my burgeoning love of needlework projects. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.Read more ›

Thriftique-Chic Vintage Fabric-Wrapped Bangles

Anyone who does any sort of crafting/upcycling or spends time on Pinterest is well aware of fabric-wrapped bangles. It’s not a new idea by any stretch! BUT…my dainty hands and wrists (quite literally the only dainty body parts I’ve got) put the “bane” in bangle, because I never find any that fit well.Read more ›

Vintage Enameled Colander Hanging Basket Planter

Vintage Enameled Colander Hanging Basket Planter

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I am a sucker for vintage kitchen goodies- gadgets, hand towels, salt-and-pepper shakers, you name it! And when we bought our house last summer, the front porch had a hook in the ceiling, just begging for a hanging basket to be hung. And in true Sadie Seasongoods fashion, I decided to build one using something salvaged.

Create and Elevate: Plate Stands

Create and Elevate: Plate Stands

Ok- I know this idea isn’t unique or mind-blowing, but it’s one of my favorite crafts that involves very few materials and is outrageously easy to do. Call them what you will, perhaps Plate Stands or Elevators (since they elevate your wares/tasty treats), but these little charmers are simple to create and come in handy around the home or as gifts.Read more ›
