It’s an exciting time of change and thankfulness for the harvest season with all the bounty it has to offer. It also means we can change up our decor to celebrate the season too.

Vintage Crocks for Farmhouse Storage & Decor

It’s more than once a week I receive the question as to how I find all the stuff I decorate with. Well, to be honest, it usually finds me. For real! Take this set of crocks, for instance. My friend, Mandy, knows I have a thing for crocks so when she spied this set of vintage crocks she asked me if I’d be interested. You betcha.

Not only is this a sweet set of Roseville crocks, but also they are useful for so many things. For instance, these are food-grade safe so I can use them for my fermenting recipes. However, the painted on apples weren’t doing it for me. Oh, and she also gave me Read more

Tell me I’m not alone here…k. I walk into the thrift store to look for one thing, then, of course, the rest of the store calls. (aka. sirens…the kind that beckon you) Am I right?

DIY Boot Rack Storage for Sanity’s Sake

We all have those places that need some…ahem…attention. You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout. Either a clutter spot or drop zone, or just an overall mess. Now this corner of my garage used to have more to it, but it had to go through a change. Let me explain how I got to our DIY boot rack, plus extra storage.

DIY Doorstop from Upcycled Baby Bib Overalls

I don’t know about you, but one of the cutest things that is available to dress a baby are bib overalls. Am I right? Little cuties crawling around or toddling in these just deserve a squeeze. I no longer have littles that require these, so when an idea struck I had to head to the thrift store to locate a pair. My vision entailed upcycling a pair of baby bibs into a fun DIY doorstop. Hang with me now.

How to Stain a Fence the Easy Way

One thing is for sure that I am not a city girl. I was born in the countryside, my heart yearns for the countryside, and one day I aim to be back there…hopefully soon. Until then, I’m trying to make the best of where we are planted and that includes dealing with unsavory issues with those around us. We decided to put up a privacy fence for obvious reasons, and thought we would share how to stain a fence the fast & easy way.
