10 garlands

A great little tutorial on making 10 different garlands from A Beautiful Mess - how fun!

Vintage packaging

Vintage packaging from here. Aren't these incredible pictures? Do you think this is authentic vintage? I think so - but I have been tricked in the past!

Weekend treasure hunting

We went to a very good antique sale in Sandpoint Idaho at the weekend - Sandpoint is about 3 hours from here, south across the border. There are quite a few good vintage shops down there and this was a one weekend only sale. It was in a big barn and there were lots of large, farm and industrial pieces that I would have snapped up if I had the space for them. I was really impressed. Here are a few pictures of some of the smaller pieces

Even though it was in a barn they had merchandised everything really well.

Loved this old linoleum rug. It was in remarkable condition considering it's probably almost 100 years old.

Cigar box diy.

Remember I bought all those cigar boxes a few weeks back? I stashed them away in the closet. Then I found this little chest of drawers on Pinterest made from cigar boxes - I love it. I think I'm going to try this with mine - I even have a little shelf unit I can use. I have some small, vintage, library drawer pulls that I might use instead of cotton spools for handles.
