February is upon us!

Vintage lace & Antique European Grain Sack Hearts

No surprise that I’m still making hearts. February is almost here! I have antique European grain sacks and vintage lace so it’s time to melt the two together.

I went thrifting a few days ago and I can’t pass up vintage milk glass. This vase is perfect to hold hand made hearts.

Which one is your fav?

Really, which one is your favorite? I know mine! Perfect hearts to tuck your favorite valentine in.

Cutter quilt hearts too…

I’ve been busy with all kinds of hearts. Another vintage cutter quilt that needed to be repurposed. I will be using this cutter quilt for more projects too. The outer edges of this quilt deteriorated and crumbled. Such a sad sight, but the inner panels of the quilt are gorgeous and so colorful.

Can’t wait to show you what else I do with them. Stay tuned.


Oh February, you are so much fun. Stay tuned.

Peace, love & junk,


Hearts! ❤️

Antique European grain sack heart

I have been busy this week making hearts from antique European grain sack scraps. I’ll be honest I love making hearts. So when I came across these antique scraps from grain sacks I had to use it. All different sizes, different vintage cloth and you have tons of sweet hearts!

I had an old flour sack that was torn and an old buck shot bag, that became hearts and a little hanging sack.

An old buck shot bag, turned into a little hanging sack.

This week I will be working on more pocket hearts made from old cutter quilts. I can’t wait!

Smaller hanging hearts

Have a fabulous week. Thank you for stopping by!

Hearts, hearts and more hearts.

Peace, love and junk,


Good bye 2021, Hello New Year 2022

Strawberry Margarita

Hello 2022! 2021 was a year of res and recovery for me. On December 17, 2020 I was carrying laundry down to the laundry room and my feet became tangled on the second step. Those thirteen {13} steps head first into the concrete floor was a eye opening experience. Numerous broken bones, bumps, bruises, severe concussion and brain fog would lead to two {2} different surgeries and three and a half months {3 1/2 } off work. Very little painting and not a whole lot of creating.

Me, ouch! This pic still makes me nauseous.

I’m not going to let this fall or any fall set me back. I’ve already lost a whole year, yet I have the rest of my life. So, what’s next?

My top nine posts from Instagram.

I want to fill 2022 Top Nine with gorgeous furniture pics, memory making trips and Harvey our rescue dog.

Harvey the rescue dog

Harvey had a difficult 2020 into 2021 too. We rescued him out of Flint, Michigan where he had been left in a motel for homeless familial and couples. The motel knew he was there, but didn’t realize the couple had left. He was starving and so matted he had to be shoved to his bare bones to help him move. You could feel his ribs and every bone in his spine.

No worries now, he is fed, groomed, feels right at home and loved beyond words. We are so lucky to have him in our lives and to be his parents.

So 2021, really does have happy endings. A creator ready to create, a happy and well fed rescue dog and a strawberry Margarita to end the year.
