How to Build a Potting Bench that is Portable for a Small Yard / Garden

Every Spring and Summer, my Pinterest and Facebook news feeds are filled to the brim with big, beautiful potting benches! Whether constructed from pallets or old doors, or even a genuine vintage potting table, they are stunning and, well, LARGE. But, here’s the thing- I’m a gardener on a very small scale…I simply don’t have the space for the classic potting bench. So, I set forth to create something on a smaller scale…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 So, when I found these outdated bucket sconces at a thrift store, I decided make something similar for my gardening hand tools.Read more ›

And to celebrate the arrival of this season, I decided to create a Spring wreath using a straw tote or straw purse from the thrift store.

Your Favorite Projects from Sadie Seasongoods 2015

…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?!”.

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at embroidery and different hand embroidery stitches, then this is a GREAT project to start on. Why?

DIY Bracelets with Vintage Fabric and Broken Jewelry

DIY Bracelets with Vintage Fabric and Broken Jewelry

As a general rule, bangles don’t usually fit me very well. My wrists are – quite literally – the only dainty part of my body. Which means, the average bangle bracelet just won’t stay on. I took a chance and tried on these plastic bracelets from the thrift store and was blown away at how well they fit! I didn’t care much for their appearance, but I knew I could transform them into DIY bracelets that fit my look much better.Read more ›

Creating a Green Life with Tumble Dryer Balls as a Natural Fabric Softener

If you’re anything like me, then you may be looking for green tips, Earth friendly products, or whatever you can find to build a Green Life. And one thing I have heard over and over again is that dryer sheets are toxic and/or bad for the environment. So, I decided to try my hand at making some dryer balls or tumble dryer balls using wool yarn I found at the thrift store.

Tick Tock for your Feathered Flock- The DIY Birdhouse

You may recall in this post that I recently visited the Goodwill on Broughton in Savannah, GA. Well, while I was there, I stumbled upon a sweet little desktop clock that was perfect for a specific project. AND you may recall from this post that I’ve got a yen for creating more wildlife habitat options in our backyard. Well, my friends, the time has come to finally transform the clock into its new purpose in life- a birdhouse!Read more ›
