Cabinet Door Repurposed into Mason Jar Wall Vase

During a recent trip to a thrift store,
I picked up 4 matching cabinet doors.
 
I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with them at first.
I was thinking I would make a sign of some sort,
but because of how small the middle portion of the doors are
 I decided to turn them into wall vases.

Handmade Ruffled Drop Cloth Wreath

A few weeks back I was sent a picture of a beautiful wreath
with a note asking if I could make something like it.
 
After thinking about the wreath for a few days, I came up with an idea.
I could recreate something similar using fabric from a drop cloth and an embroidery hoop.
 
This is the wreath I came up with.

Scrap Wood turned into Fall Yard Signs

It's that season
 
FALL
 
You know what that means.
Cooler temps, leaves turning brilliant colors, fires crackling inside and outside,
 pumpkin scented candles, pumpkin desserts and fall festivals every weekend.
 
 
There is a hugely attended Harvest Day Festival this Saturday in Inman, SC.
It just happens to be the town where the antique store is located that I have a booth in.
 
I have been working on stocking up my space and making a few things to sell outside at the festival.
 
I've been wanting to make some fall signs and finally got around to it.
I used some of our scrap fence boards to make a few signs this week.

With so many fall festivals, vintage markets and craft shows coming up
 I've been busy making fall decor pieces.
 
I wanted to share these cute drop cloth pumpkins and how I made them.

How to make Your Own Cotton Boll Branch Wreath

I'm in love with the cotton boll branches that you see often in home decor right now.
Not to mention how pretty fields of cotton are.
 
I decided to make a wreath using cotton for the Fall show I'm doing this Saturday.

Another Thrift Store Bread Box Makeover

The last two weeks have been busy working on Fall projects for a quickly approaching craft show, keeping my booth at the antique mall stocked and tidy
and working on custom barb wire wreaths for a wedding in Colorado.
 
I have fit in some time to do a couple thrift store makeovers too.
Here are two of them.
 
 
I know, another bread box.
It seems I run across these often and they always sell quickly, so why not.

Homemade Hummingbird Feeder Water

We had a rainy Sunday here in South Carolina
and I spent some time rocking on the cabin porch watching our hummingbirds.
 
We have eight of them that have been frequenting our feeders daily this summer.
 
I tried to get a few pictures of them to share with you.
I thought I would also share my easy recipe for the homemade sugar water that I make for them.
