It's that time of year again. Lilacs are in bloom, everywhere! I'm not familiar with
all the different types of lilacs that are out there but I can tell you that our lilac bushes
are in their glory right now.

Friday Finds Vintage Edition #7: Ironstone Alert

Vintage gold filigree mirrored tray

I was lucky enough to drive by a place recently that was advertising a pop up
 estate sale for the next day. It only happens there about two times a year so I
was happy to be in the right place at the right time to find out about it in advance.
And of course I was there the next morning with bells on.

Since I'm trying to be more frugal than usual these days, I didn't go in with the
expectation of buying anything. Sometimes just looking around can be fun,
too! And I'm happy to report that I spent a relatively small amount of money
and managed to leave very happy.

Friday Finds Vintage Edition #6: Is There a Bar Cart In My Future?

vintage bar cart repurpose ideas

They're baaaaack! Retro bar carts are all the rage. You see them in popular
home décor catalogs and on Pinterest. And I've fallen for them. Hard.
I've even dedicated an entire Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home}
Bar Cart Pinterest Board to them.
And being the thrifty DIY-er that I am, I can't just go out and buy one, now
could I? Of course not! If it isn't a challenge then it's not worth it ha ha. 
Seriously, I was thrilled to come across this old collapsible two-shelf cart
on wheels at a killer yard sale I accidentally came across this past week. 
Dilemma: how should I repurpose it?

Natural Spring Decor: Wheat Grass in Eggshells Revisited

wheat grass growing in egg shells
Right before Easter I shared with you my wheat grass-in-eggshell epic fail. Turns
out I was using old seeds. Even though it didn't work out I was determined to make
it work, come hell or high water. So I went out, bought new seeds, and collected
even more eggshells to use for planting. I did everything else the same.

Friday Finds Vintage Edition #5: Pearls and More Pearls

Springtime in the midwest seems to have been short-lived, as the
temperature's been dipping down to freezing over night.
Last night we lost our garden tomato and bean plants to the
unwelcome frost. We can only hope it's back to spring temps tonight.
I'd hate to lose any more plants.

My Bottle Drying Rack Reveal

In my last post I shared with you a few different ways to use bottle drying racks
as farmhouse décor. And today I thought I'd share with you how I'm using mine. It's
really nothing fancy. Just a coffee/tea station set up on the sideboard in the kitchen.
But I think it's in the perfect place for now.
