Kathy from Southern Style Southern Charm has a new favorite highway yard sale – U.S. Highway 11 Antique Alley Yard Sale.  It runs from Meridian, Mississippi to Bristol, Virginia and takes place the weekend after Mother’s Day.  According to Kathy, it is 502 miles of yard sale awesomeness. After hearing all Kathy had to say about this sale I am putting it on my calendar for next year.  You might want to check it out for yourself.

Jaclyn from the blog One Thousand Oaks is a true farmhouse lover (which, by the way, is just my kind of girl). Last week she shared her DIY Whitewash Finish recipe and provided a tutorial explaining how to make it and how she used it. It’s absolutely fabulous as the finishing touch on her DIY farmhouse side table. I’m not sure which I love more, the table or the finish! I’m in the process of a dining room reno myself and I could definitely use some of her ideas! Drop by and see the awesome finished product!

Some of you may know Sarah from her other two blogs: Classical Homemaking and Belle’s Library. Her latest endeavor is a new blog called The Victorian Letter Writers Guild, where readers can join a summer pen friend exchange. I’m enthralled by Sarah’s artful posts about the charm and tools associated with what has sadly become a lost art–letter writing! 5 Things I Didn’t Know About Wax Letter Seals is a lovely post with some unusual and interesting facts that you’ll enjoy when you pay Sarah a visit.

Brooke at Suddenly Southern picked up some wire wrapped vases a few weeks ago at Vintage Market Days of North Alabama.  She used them as part of her {Vintage Style} Treasures on the Sideboard.  In addition to the vases, the treasures on the sideboard include vintage postcards, photographs, and other fun items from her vintage collections.  You may remember Brooke from her former blog Creative Country Mom.  Be sure to visit Brooke and follow along as she is Making a Home in the Heart of Dixie.

Cecilia of B Farm is quite the artist, as well as a thrifty DIY goddess. I’m in love with the vintage metal cart she utterly transformed with a little bit of elbow grease and a lotta talent! In Dog Art On A Cartshe shares how she took a flea market find that had seen better days and gave it some artistic love. The end result is a fabulous retro vibe bar cart that anyone would LOVE to call their own. I know I would! Oh, and her two dog “models” (Buddy and Herbie) are the cutest. Drop by and see for yourself.

Barb from French Ethereal transformed a plain wooden miniature camper into the cutest little Shabby Chic Glamper. From a tiny license plate to bejeweled wheels, every detail is delightful! Drop by to get the tutorial and supply list to make your own.

Kim at Snug Harbor Bay loves redoing antique trunks.  She picked up one in less than pristine condition at an estate sale recently.  She started her redo process by giving it a good cleaning, repaired a couple of places on the bottom, replaced the handles, and painted the whole thing white.  When the trunk was dry she distressed it and waxed the outside.  During the cleaning process, she ripped out most of the paper inside so she used her favorite go to for papering trunk interiors, vintage sheet music. Hop on over to Snug Harbor Bay to check out all that went into redoing Kim’s antique trunk.

As an avid DIYer and vintage jewelry artist, I was drawn in by Artsy Vava’s DIY tablet stand. While I’ve seen many of these types of creations on Pinterest and in the blogosphere, I think hers is extra special. I love the color she chose to paint the clipboard as well as the vintage bling she so expertly embellished it with. It looks beautiful holding her tablet, grocery list or even photos. If you’ve ever thought of making your own one of these (and even if you haven’t!) head on over and check it out!

In We Passed Final Inspection! Melissa from Dancing Dog Cabin shared an update of the gorgeous cabin she and her husband have so lovingly renovated. She also shared her heart regarding her recent absence from blogging due to grieving the loss of her mother. We’ve missed Melissa and send our condolences. I’ll close with her dedication honoring her mom, but be sure to drop by for a visit–farmhouse lovers will not want to miss her kitchen!

This post is dedicated to my mom, because, I owe, among many other things, my decorating style, my love of old vintage things and antiques with character, and my approach to creating a home, to her and the home I grew up in.

Claire, who blogs at Pillar Box Blue, wowed us all with her amazing mosaic wall planter, created with pieces of broken vintage china. What makes this project truly unique are the halved tea cups, perfect for holding small plants like the darling succulents you see here. The best part? She provides all the details you need to make one of your very own.

Lisa from Recreated Designs found an incredible vintage buffet for $20.   She fell in love with its beauty and storage potential.  The buffet turned out to be perfect for her home but she wanted to make it special.  Lisa achieved her goal in a wonderful way.  Her grandmother kept many cards and letters to and from her family over the years and Lisa decided to line the top drawer with them.  The vintage buffet already captured her heart but being able to see those letters each time she opens the drawer makes it priceless to her.  Visit Lisa to see how to Use Cherished Letters to Make Old Furniture Special.

When I first saw this incredible shabby chic globe over at Penny’s Vintage Home I thought to myself, “Where did she buy that? I want one, too!” Little did I know that she MADE IT HERSELF! How have I not thought of this? Absolute genius, Penny! It goes oh so beautifully with your travel-themed family room, but it could certainly stand alone as a great addition to any shabby chic decor collection. I’m sure your chalkboard globe was nice, but this — it’s simply stunning. (And trust me, I NEVER use the word stunning!) Readers, be sure to stop by and see not only this beautiful globe but the lovely family room as well. I will definitely be making one of these….

I think most of us can relate to Lauren from Wonderfully Made and her attempt to avoid estate sales as she declutters her home. Fortunately, she couldn’t resist stopping at the half price sale where she scored this charming Vintage Glove Box. At first, Lauren wasn’t sure of the box’s purpose but purchased it because she was drawn to the intricate design. After a little research, she learned her new find is from the early 1900s, plus a very interesting back story, you’ll enjoy reading for yourself. Pay Lauren a visit to get the details and see the rest of the vintage treasures she scored half price!

Debra from Shoppe No.5 took a plain bed tray and gave it a fabulous upgrade using a few simple materials she had on hand, like chalk paint and fabric–and just in time for Mother’s Day, too! Was she giving her children a hint? Maybe, but she was also taking part in a regular, Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge, along with over thirty other bloggers. Great project and helpful tutorial, too.

Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home had a great Easter Weekend Junkin’ Finds.  She found several things that are on my junking “want” list.  Great patina abounds on her finds.  My favorite find is an old rusty golf ball basket and a model Eiffel Tower.  Go check it out, she only hit three sales and spend a mere $8.  I would love to go junkin’ with Amber anytime!

Dany from My Little Old World has made me smile in a big way. Not only has she shared with us the teacup and other goodies she received as a participant in The Enchanting Rose 10th Teacup & Mug Exchange, but she also shares with us her adorable Augustus bunny rabbit as well. If you’ve ever thought of joining in the teacup exchange, this is the post to read. And as far as adorable pets are concerned, I have always wanted a lop eared rabbit. After seeing the photos of Augustus my desire for a rabbit has been rekindled — just don’t tell my husband! Thank you, Dany,for making me smile!

Karee at The Vintage Chateau loves charm bracelets. Her book club recently read The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, an enchanting story of a widower who discovers a charm bracelet that his wife never wore. Arthur set out to learn the story behind each charm. Karee understands the need to know about each charm and makes the analogy that a charm bracelet is a “scrapbook” with each charm bringing to mind a special memory. Karee had so many charms she even created a charm necklace. She plans to start a charm bracelet for her only granddaughter’s eighth birthday so she can start making her own “jewelry scrapbook”. So now I’m off to find the charm bracelet from my teens.

Jill at Bella Rosa Antiques is an avid collector of LuRay Pastels dinnerware.  She was at Goodwill with her daughter on another quest when she discovered some of her prized dinnerware but almost left a few pieces behind until she remembered that Goodwill organizes by color.  She ended up finding quite a few pieces to add to her collection.  Try as I may, I haven’t found any LuRay Pastels at the thrift stores near me.  So my hat’s off to Jill for making such a fantastic vintage find of Hidden Treasures at a Thrift Shop.

Guest Feature: Victoria from Dazzle While Frazzled shares a simple yet darling Easter centerpiece idea. I’ve always been a huge Peeps fan, so this DIY is right up my alley! All you need are a few things you may already have in your stash: skewers, some plastic eggs, pipe cleaners, construction paper, and a hole punch. Oh, and Peeps, of course! And if you don’t have Peeps it’s a great excuse to go out and get some! Did I mention that it takes no time at all? Check out her DIY 10-Minute Easter Peeps Centerpiece for the lowdown on how to make one for your Easter table!

Absolutely, charming, Jann! When should we arrive for tea?

The idea of shopping a Paris market is romantic enough, but add to that a personal photo shoot and you have a dream come true! Amy from My Brocante Treasures gives us a taste of what the city has to offer in My Paris Market Photo Shoot. She shares a few buying tips and some of her a-mazing purchases, like linens to die for, decorated china, and beautiful blue enamelware canisters. We so enjoyed Amy’s photo shoot and had a ball seeing all the vintage and antiques that the market had to offer.

Florence from Vintage Southern Picks created a charming Spring- Easter Centerpiece with a Vintage Birdcage and a few other spring treasures.  Florence put the centerpiece together in such a way that it can easily be converted from an Easter Centerpiece to spring by simply removing the Easter eggs.  So versatile and totally delightful!

Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle has managed to achieve a shiplap wall look in her son’s room without using any power tools! I’ve toyed with the shiplap idea for some time now, and I’m more convinced than ever after reading her tutorial that SHIPLAP With NO Power Tools is a distinct possibility in my future! Maybe in yours, too? Thanks for the inspiration, Lindsey!

Nancy from Slightly Coastal says that Easter is her favorite holiday which is certainly evident by the absolutely swoon worthy Easter Tablescape she created. Her charming nature inspired setting is so enchanting I could almost imagine the butterfly flitting about the table–not to mention those darling golden birds! Delightful, Nancy!

Mandy gave us a project last week on her blog From Splinter to Splendor that’s after my own heart. She took a hunk of old, curvy wood and turned it into a fabulous As For Me and My House Sign. Though its previous-life-purpose is a bit shocking, it makes a lovely, vintage looking sign, perfect for over her mantel.

Leanna from Faeries and Fauna shared a tour of her charming home decorated for spring. The decor throughout her home shows a light but lovely spring touch.  Something as simple as toning down her three-tier stand with birch bark makes a huge impact.  My favorite vignette is the two rabbit sentries guarding their prize carrots in a galvanized tub but be sure not to miss the giant carrots Leanna made for her granddaughters. Hop over to the Faeries and Fauna Spring Home Tour to see which vignette is your favorite.

You don’t have to be a wine drinker to love Pat from Bringing French Country Home’s latest estate sale find. You just have to love French vintage. And that I do! Pat was lucky enough to score a rare French vintage wine crate that I would have fought for myself. She brought it home and styled it beautifully. To be honest I’m jealous but in the best way! Stop by and visit her French Wine Crate Find. Awesome score, Pat!

True confession time: As an avid gardener, I’ll admit that until very recently, I’ve been somewhat close minded when it comes to faux flowers. However, after discovering some very thrifty and realistic looking blooms for my latest project, I’ve adjusted my attitude. Jennifer at Decorated Chaos not only knows this secret, but in How to Shop for Faux Flowers she also shares her tips for arranging realistic looking bouquets, plus a source that might surprise you! If you’re like me, and not easily convinced, pay Jennifer a visit and see for yourself!

If you enjoy the rustic look of reclaimed wood, then you’ll want to run over to Anika’s DIY Life where Anika takes us step by step the process she went through to Build a DIY Emerson Buffet. She clues us in on how to mimic the look of reclaimed wood in order create her wonderfully handsome buffet–not to be missed.

Melissa’s Antiques is one of my favorite blogs to follow.  Melissa finds the best deals on vintage wares and she buys a lot.  She has antique mall booths and online stores to keep stocked.   Most recently she went to a box lot auction where she won 17 boxes of goodies and 4 “good old quilts” for a mere $20.  She hit the jackpot because those boxes held lots of vintage treasures.  Check out her latest haul at March So Far.  Wowzer!!

Carol from The Red Painted Cottage chases the winter blues away with a unique decorating idea, one that I just love. As a self-professed “antlers lover” I am always fascinated by new and different ways to display antlers. And Carol certainly wins the blue ribbon for her delicately flowered makeover of an old set of antlers that really needed a spring refresh. I’m now on the hunt for another set of antlers that I can gussy up as well! See Carol’s Decorating An Antler For Spring With Tutorial to get the lowdown on how to create your own!

Rita at Panoply shared the absolutely darling–or should I say dah-ling–Breakfast at Tiffany’s Themed Bridal Shower she co-hosted for her niece. As you might imagine from Rita’s previous posts, every detail was covered from framed Audrey Hepburn photos and quotes to adorable Holly Golightly inspired sleep masks for the wedding party. Fortunately, her post included this photo collage because I was having a time choosing just one to share! Drop by and be prepared to be delighted!

I think I’m coming around to the Mid-century Modern way of thinking, especially after seeing the handsome MCM MOD Dresser Makeover by Karin at Art is Beauty. It’s absolute perfection–almost glamorous, and most certainly a show-piece.
