Moss and Metal Heart

Mossy Heart Decor via
Date and time: January 8th; approximately 5:45 pm. I was on my bi-weekly trip to the thrift store when I spotted a heart-shaped baking form in the kitchen section (which just happens to be one of my favorite areas for picking up items to repurpose). I already had Valentine's day on the brain from some other projects I was working on so, of course, I picked up the metal heart!

Valentine Vases with Repurposed Sweaters

Sweater and Heart Vase Upcycle via
If you're anything like me, you have a boatload of clear glass vases sitting in a cupboard somewhere in your house. Mine are in the cupboard above my refrigerator. The cupboard I can't reach unless I get a chair to stand on. I have about 10 vases and only two that I ever really pull out and use. So I figured I would find a way to pretty up those vases and put them to good use!

I realized today that I never showed you all the sign we made for the store where we have our booth. Silly me!

Antique Red & Cream Stand

Antique Stand Makeover via
I've had this stand in my garage for nearly 2 years. After the holidays and the tree came down in my workshop (aka: living room), I figured it was high time I got to painting this beauty!

Vintage Valentine Vignette

Vintage and Thrifted Pieces in a Valentine Vignette via
Sometimes all it takes is one small, pretty thing to inspire an entire vignette. That's exactly what happened when I swapped out the decor on my wall shelf recently!

You Make My Heart Sing!

Painted Valentine Sign via
I never tire of love signs. No matter what time of year it is, love is always a good language. But, when Valentine's Day rolls around, you can play with fun colors and use cheeky phrases. Like I did for this new sign.

Wild Thing...

Painted Lamp with a Rag Shade

painted lamp with a DIY rag lampshade via
I picked up a couple of lamps at an estate sale this past fall. They were gold and rather ugly but I liked the details on them and knew they would look cute when painted. So when I started working on new items for my booth, I grabbed one and got to work!

I know we just finished with the Christmas and New Year holidays but I've already got Valentine's day on my mind! Guess I'm just a big romantic at heart after all. So I'm sharing a quick Valentine project with you today.

A Curvy Little Coat Rack

I can't even remember where in the world I picked up this piece, but I'm pretty sure it was part of a table. Either way, it makes a wonderful coat rack and small memo board!
