Officially SPRING!

Today marks the first day of Spring. Woot. Woot.

I'm itching to hit up some yard sales this season to see what "treasures" I can find. I've already gathered a few things from Craigslist.

I snatched up these windows for some vinyl art.

and this little outhouse style tool shed...for FREE! The question I have now, is what color to paint it? My fiance wants to keep it red. I'll debate a little longer. What color would YOU paint it?

I'm also new to these things called 'barn sales'. I'm noticing a lot of barns have these periodically and I absolutely must make a point to attend some. I can only imagine the beauties that are hidden in there. There aren't too many barns where I am from in NJ, but the southern girl in me will be sure to find some.

Aimee from My *PINK* Life sure knows where to find the good stuff! Take a look at some of these gorgeous signs she's made!

I'm in love with the hinges on these. I can only hope to be so lucky to find similar items in the future.

Here is a look at some of Aimee's other sign projects

Interested in trying your own wood art? Aimee also offers up her own tutorial, here

Go ahead, make your own wood art. I'd love to see it when you do. I can't wait to find me some hinged door goodness.


  1. Thanks for featuring my signs!! I'm glad the tutorial was helpful. And I, too, can't wait for yard sale season and picking up all the treasures that are out there!! :)

  2. Sorry for the comment overload, but I love those windows too- I have a few projects I have done with old windows and a few in the works. It looks like you are pretty new to blogging so I thought I would invite you to link up at my Sunday Linky Party- Scout's Sweet Sundays. I would love if you stopped by! http://xstitchandcrafts.blogspot.com/

    1. No need to apologize, I *am* new so I love comments.
      I will definitely check it out. Thanks for stopping by. :)
      I'm still learning the ropes of the blogging world.
