Are you loving the DIY macrame wall hangings on Pinterest, but have no interest in the time to make all those knots? Me either. So I did this instead. This DIY macrame wall hanging uses only a few knots..and some feathers. This starts a thrift store spoon holder. Now, I have to admit, this is the second repurpose of the holder. The first idea involved painting it black and using it as a hand towel holder in my craft room. It looked cute, but I rarely used it. This is why I ... Read the Post
Your hands are drippy and not a hand towel in sight. How many times does this happen to you? Keep a towel handy with this spindle towel bar. Laundry day on the farm was a huge day. During my time on the farm, grandma had an electric wringer washer. While grandma and grandpa went to town, my aunt and I did the laundry. I adore my aunt.

Books are first, then ... Read the Post
What to do with old books and add a bit of style to your decor When I was very young, my favorite book for grandpa to read to me was the little red hen. It may not have been the story that I liked so much, as the sounds he made for the farm animals. Mike says the story ruined me. It is about a hen asking for help, then the other barn animals say no, she does it herself. Two things are found in every thrift store. Stacks of old wood frames and shelves bulging with books. Stop ... Read the Post
If you have little beads and bobbles leftover from craft projects, here’s a fun way to use them. Make a strand of thankful beads to weave around your Thanksgiving centerpiece. But, for those that don’t have a jar of leftover beads, this idea is, without a doubt, a great place to start beading projects. And, it keeps the little ones busy while you’re figuring out how to cut away the burnt pieces from the turkey. I find wooden beads on Amazon. These are the main sizes I use for ... Read the Post
