More shiny Christmas stuff coming to Sage FarmPosted: December 4, 2014 Filed under: Craft, Holidays, Sage Farm, Where to find the dish sisters | Tags: Christmas, Christmas decoration, craft, crafting, Crafts, Sage Farm, vintage Christmas crafts, vintage ornament wreath 1 Comment
True confession: I’ve never sold anything I’ve made. I hope that still isn’t true after the upcoming Dear Santa show at Sage Farm. I’ve got a small collection of Christmas wreaths about to make their public debut.
Have a look!
Not impressed? Well then how about this one?

Thank goodness this is a joint blog because Luray has been posting and posting while I have been glooping hot glue on lots of vintage stuff to make Christmas wreaths. I’ve got a baker’s dozen to send to Sage Farm next week for the December show.
Ready for the Big Reveal? Here’s wreath number one…
Unfinished? Unsuccessful? Unglamourous? You betcha!Posted: November 18, 2014 Filed under: Craft, This Old Row House | Tags: Christmas, Christmas decoration, potholder rug, quilt top, sewing project, vintage Christmas crafts 3 Comments
Do you ever get tired of perfect Pinterest homescapes? Bloggers that have it all together? Well now’s your day to feel relieved, normal and possibly even superior. Yes, my house is a creative disaster area right now. The December Sage show is rushing up FAST and I’ve got everything started, nothing finished. My dining room table looks like this:
The kitchen counter looks like this:
Seven smalls I saw at SagePosted: October 12, 2014 Filed under: Craft, Fun Finds, Sage Farm, Vintage pottery | Tags: McCoy pottery, Quilting, Sage Farm, yellow is a happy color 2 Comments
Part of the fun of going to Sage Farm is seeing how the best dealers merchandise their stuff. I always try to look at that. It’s a free education if you pay attention!
But a few smalls always catch my eye, too. Here are six of them from last weekend’s Sage Farm show. First, a McCoy iris vase displayed with other pottery. I don’t care that it’s McCoy, I just love the flutey shape, and the yellow. Because yellow is a happy color. (A vase identical to the green one behind the yellow McCoy is sitting on my mantel right now!) An almost-rusty steel window screen displays vintage postcards. Wouldn’t this be great in your kitchen for recipes and notes? Too bad rust isn’t my thing. Now if I found a white enameled steel version . . .
See the other goodies I found!
Bottlecap crochet was a thing? How did I miss that?Posted: October 11, 2014 Filed under: Craft, Fun Finds, Knitting & crochet, Sage Farm | Tags: aluminum love!, bottlecap crochet, vintage crochet 11 Comments
At the October Sage Farm show, one dealer had a big stack of these hot mats, in two sizes, shaped like bunches of grapes.
I thought they were made of crocheted puffs that were stuffed with fiberfill or something. And then I picked one up.
Find out how they’re made-it’s easy!
