Vintage Farmhouse Decor with Architectural Salvage

Vintage Farmhouse Decor with Architectural Salvage

When I spotted a pair of plain bookends at the thrift store, I knew right away that they could become stunning vintage farmhouse decor with the right pieces of architectural salvage. I just needed to find the right “bits” to complete my vision.Read more ›

Creating Wall Art from Architectural Salvage

Creating Wall Art from Architectural Salvage

For someone who loves architectural salvage so much, I don’t work with it often enough. Sure, I’ve created a few projects in the past, but far fewer than those using, say…thrift store finds. So, I’m here to add another repurposed architectural salvage project to my collection- this time, using pieces of gingerbread trim that I spied at Maliasmark’s booth during a Vintage Market Days event in Asheville, North Carolina.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 ›

Reclaimed Furniture Applique Brooches

Reclaimed Furniture Applique Brooches

After reading the title of this post, you may be shaking your head…Does it really say Furniture Applique Brooches? And that’s ok- I know it sounds completely ridiculous! But if you bear with me for a few more paragraphs, I think I might convince you that the end result is pretty fantastic.Read more ›

Shotgun!: Country Living Fair 2016 (Lebanon, Tennessee)

Shotgun!: Country Living Fair 2016 (Lebanon, Tennessee)

A couple of years ago, I attended my first Country Living Fair in Atlanta and just had a terrific time. If you’ve never been to a CLF before, here’s what you need to know: they are HUGE events and it’s impossible to see everything in one day…and the booths are amazing, so you’ll be plunking down some hard-earned dollars for unique treasures that you just may never find again. So when I had the chance to attend this year’s Fair in Lebanon, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville), I jumped at the chance!Read more ›

Potholder or Kitchen Hot Pad for a Baking Dish Made from Country Quilts

Well, here we are again with the same vintage quilt that I found at a thrift store…this time with Project #2! To refresh your memory, I found these country quilts at a Habitat ReStore in the North Georgia Mountains. I ended up just purchasing one of them…the pretty lady on the left!Read more ›

Shotgun!: Brevard, North Carolina (A Junkin’ Journey)

Shotgun!: Brevard, North Carolina (A Junkin’ Journey)

I love to sit down, study the map, and figure out where I want to head to next for my latest junkin’ journey. For obvious reasons (money, time…), I tend to stick relatively close to home- with the occasional longer sojourn to further-away stops. But for right now, I decided to head back into western North Carolina.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for a mountain town.

So we headed up the mountain- literally- to Brevard, North Carolina. Home of the White Squirrel Festival, Brevard is a charming little town with an equally charming Main Street. And I’m happy to report, several charming little shops to explore…shall we?Read more ›

Junkin’ Journey: Knoxville, Tennessee (Part 1)

Junkin’ Journey: Knoxville, Tennessee (Part 1)

I don’t know about you, but I love to visit college towns. They are perpetually injected with youth and the funky vibe that comes from college coeds. And as all things “vintage” become trendier, college towns are really turning into hotbeds of places to thrift for cool, unusual, or wonderfully seasoned secondhand pieces. So, revisiting Knoxville, Tennessee moved to the top of my junkin’ journey list! Home to University of Tennessee’s main campus, it’s a fun mountain town that boasts a LOT of thrifting and antiques-shopping options.

I ended my weekend with a carload of goodies and a text message apology to Jon for everything I was bringing home. But, where, oh where, did I go?Read more ›

Reader’s Choice 2015: Your Favorite Projects from Sadie Seasongoods

Reader’s Choice 2015: Your Favorite Projects from Sadie Seasongoods

…and just like that, it’s nearly time to bring 2015 to a close. The end of this year snuck up on me like nobody’s business- somehow we went from Labor Day to Christmas in the blink of an eye.

I know just about all bloggers do a “Best of” post to close out the calendar year, so I appreciate you humoring me as we skip and frolic down memory lane. Some of you will recall these from months gone by, and for the friendly faces that are new to my little corner of the internet- you picked a great time to find me! I wrangled together the 12 most-viewed project posts from 2015- many of which won’t be surprises for long-time friends…but there are always a few that make me go, “Huh. So that one was popular?!”.

I’ll probably never get the chance to thank everyone individually, but please know that your kind words, your ideas, your funny comments, your shares, your social media follows, and your subscriptions mean the absolute world to me. I know, I know…I tend to get a little sappy.

So without further ado, your top 12 favorites from 2015 are…
