Repurposed Linens

I've been collecting vintage linens for years. I really love them all. I had been wanting a runner for my buffet table and just decided to use some of my linens. I measured the length and width then cut some fabric the correct size of the buffet. Then just started adding embroidery linens and used feather stitch on my sewing machine to attach them.  Hemmed the whole thing.


I love it.

Ideas for Electric Insulators and Broken Glass

I love these old electric pole insulators. My dad and brother gave me some a while back and I didn't know what to do with them. At Goodwill today I found 2 candle holders.  I knew they would be the perfect thing for my garden. They are very sturdy and if they rust just that much better. They were only .99 each.


I love this little snail and I've had it a long time, but it got broken last year. The whole back side is broken so I just sit it up against my planter and you can't tell.

I found some old pieces of glass plates in my woods. I'm sure you think that's wierd but many years ago there weren't any recycle centers. People had trash in the woods and covered it up. They had been washed up. Also found lots of cool old bottles.
