The weather has taken a sharp turn towards freezing temperatures here in the Midwest. I can't help but begin to think of Christmas as these chilly evenings set in. We still have a little ways to go until it's time to decorate the house, but working on some DIY Christmas ornaments can never start too... Continue Reading →

DIY Sign for Autumn

DIY decor is so inexpensive to make. Just look at this Garden Sign I hung for summer, or the Custom Banner for Elliot's nursery, a Potholder for the kitchen, or this Waist Apron I made from vintage fabric.

We all have a few kitchen tools that we use every single day. One set of items that I wouldn't want to go without are my wooden spoons. They are aesthetically pleasing, durable, and quite useful. I always reach for the same wooden spoon when I feed my sourdough starter, mix up homemade pancakes, or... Continue Reading →

How to Sew Cafe Curtains

I've wanted light and airy curtains in our kitchen window for awhile now. I am so thankful for this large window that permits so much light to enter the kitchen area. It is such a blessing! While I plan to keep the curtains open for most of the day, I like the idea of having... Continue Reading →

How to Sew a Market Bag

Harvest season will be upon us before we know it. Many pounds of tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, herbs, sweet corn, beans, and more will make their way from the garden and into the farmhouse. Sometimes I like to utilize an old basket for carrying all the produce inside, but this year I decided I wanted to... Continue Reading →
