Crafting & Thrifting


I have a multitude of projects going on right now in my craft room.

This Saturday I am hosting my second Crafternoon. Our projects will be embroidery hoop art.

See the first Crafternoon {here}.

Currently working on transforming the above lamp into something that fits more with my craft room décor.

Here is a sneak peek…



I traveled to Traverse City this week for a conference and did a little thrifting while I was there.

I added two pieces to my milk glass collection. The combined cost for both was $3.50 {What a deal!}



These little letters will be transformed for some wall art in my daughter’s bedroom.


I have been on a vintage doily kick lately and added quite a few new ones to my growing collection.






This dish here I have had for about 15 years. It was a piece that I bought from a thrift store right after I was out of high school. I have always loved the detail on it and hung it in numerous places within my homes. As you can see it broke…{tears}…I may just glue it and maybe it will add more character to it.


Me just saying “Hi”!


See my {Linky Parties} to view the parties I am participating in.

  1. You have such great finds! I haven't done much thrifting but I never seem to find anything nearly as cute as what you're showing off! Maybe it just takes more practice? 😉

  2. I love thrifty finds and yours are awesome – makes me want to run, not walk, to my nearest thrift store 🙂 I found you over at Be Different's linky party – thanks for sharing with us!

  3. Wow, your post is very lovely to read, great photos, very intriguing. You found some great things out thrifting, too. I saw you over at Homemaker on a Dime's blog hop, and I'm a new follower. Have a good day!

  4. So sorry about your pretty plate. It does have some wonderful detail. Maybe try gluing first. And what is it about vintage linens. Just love them!Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten!
