Vintage-Inspired Military First Aid Kit

Vintage-Inspired Military First Aid Kit

Ok- so, in the interest of full disclosure, I fully intended this project to be my Product Test Drive post for July. BUT…things didn’t exactly go as planned. So, I’m putting that product “on ice”…which has a double meaning. Why? Because my plans for this little medicine cabinet were to transform it into a vintage-inspired military first aid kit. (Get it…putting it on ice…first aid…ok, dumb joke!)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 ›

DIY / Repurposed Gift Ideas for Guys

If you have a guy to shop for, then you may struggle with gift-giving…and you are certainly not alone! So, instead of buying presents at the mall, maybe it’s time to take a different approach. Over the years, I’ve created DIY/Repurposed projects for my husband (or something more unisex for myself), both decorative and functional.Read more ›

Coastal Wall Art from a Goodwill Book and Picture Frame

Coastal Wall Art from a Goodwill Book and Picture Frame

So I have some exciting news- for me, at least, and hopefully for you, too! Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina has re-vamped their blog with an entirely new team of writers, including yours truly. We are a wonderfully diverse team of bloggers– fashion thrifters, DIYers, foodie writers, and home decorators who will bring you new projects and ideas throughout each month. Goodwill is obviously our thrift shop of choice, but it’s just a great idea to spotlight the idea of thrifting and buying secondhand goods. You all know I’m a big believer in it- and a lot of you are, too- so I’m definitely looking forward to yet another way to keeping the “buying used” movement going!Read more ›

Vintage Oval Framed Maps Decor

Vintage Oval Framed Maps Decor

A couple of months ago, I posted a photo on my Sadie Seasongoods Facebook page– it was a project I had worked on a year ago, before I had even started my blog. The response on Facebook was overwhelming- folks LOVED the oval-framed maps. So, I knew I was onto something and decided to create new ones so that I could share it as a project tutorial here on my blog.Read more ›

It’s Game Time: Domino Clock

It’s Game Time: Domino Clock

My husband, Jon, is a game guy- computer games, board games, card games…the more strategy, the better. To combine my love of vintage with his love of games, our home office is decorated with old wooden game boards from the 1930s-1950s. They make for great wall décor and it’s been a fun challenge to hunt them down.

So when I ran across this domino clock idea on Pinterest, putting it on my project to-do list was a done deal. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.Read more ›
