Re-Purposed Window Frame Earring & Necklace Holder

My youngest daughter found a jewelry holder on Etsy that she wanted to order and emailed me the photo.  I told her WE could make one just like it, or maybe even better.

 I had an old window frame from a garage sale that I had purchased for 50 cents.  The size was great.
My daughter gave the frame a couple of coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement.

Estate Sales, Rummage Sales, and Thrift Store Shopping


I have never seen one of these before and didn't immediately find another one on the internet until I connected it with pies.  It's a vintage pie slicer/scorer.

Re-Purposed Thrift Shop Homemade Noodle Dryer Linen Rack


 When I saw this item at the local thrift shop, I wasn't exactly sure what it was.  The store clerk said she thought it was a homemade noodle dryer.  I agreed it was used for food because the dowels where a bit oily feeling.  

I washed it down good with some hot water and Dawn dish soap to remove the grease.

Welcome to NO PLACE LIKE HOME AGAIN, (a shop with something for everyone)

September 1st, I joined the gals at No Place Like Home Again, a shop with antiques, collectibles, home decor, antique furniture, up-cycled and re-purposed furniture and decor items, new items, garden junk, jewelry, and ladies' wear.  Like I said in the title to this post, there is something for everyone!

I hope to update you from time to time with unique items added at the shop.  Today I am going to share some photos of some of the other partners' rooms.

The first room belongs to Chris.  Chris is a fabulous decorator and furniture painter.  This sweet little desk painted in grays, and black with a whitewashed top has stenciled fleur de lis in the corners.  The matching chair has a fun fabric seat and is the perfect compliment to the desk.

New Additions To My Re-Purposed Photo Gallery Wall

I picked up a vintage safety vegetable grater that was still in the package at a garage sale on Saturday for 50 cents.

This became an easy photo display piece.  This is a copy of an original photo of my Grandma and her sisters.  My Grandma is little girl seated in front.

Selling At No Place Like Home Again


I have been kicking around the idea of renting selling space at a local antique/consignment shop called No Place Like Home Again for over a year now.  The rent was quite reasonable but I was always reluctant to commit to working at the store 3-4 days per month in addition to my regular employment, blogging, flower gardening and trying to keep a clean house.

I finally took the plunge September 1st.

As I was setting up my sales space, I was reminiscing about some of my past projects.  (These are by far not all of them, just the first batch to arrive at the shop)  I will also be selling off some of seasonal decorations and collectibles.
