Altered Watercolor Paint Tin

Glass Insulator Tea Light Holder

We've probably all seen old glass insulators at garage sales. The aqua glass color is beautiful and the shapes are interesting but what do you do with them once you've collected a few? I had thrifted...

Vintage Bobbin Necklace

I love the look of vintage metal thread bobbins and had a stash of thrifted thread. I loaded the bobbins with my favorite thread colors and strung them among my Pandora beads {which is actually three...

Repurposed Metal Shelf and Display Board

First I fell in love with the chippy blue color. Then I fell in love with the fact that it was an old doll bed. And as I was waiting to buy the bed I happened to turn it around and noticed that it...

Repurposed Vintage Card Display

I picked this up at a recent estate sale. I thought it was odd to put a card holder in a box of old kitchen utensils. I discovered that it was an old grill screen. I removed the handle and now...
