FROM AN OLD OAK DRAWER TO HERB SIGNS!
Welcome to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air! Hows your garden growing? You don't need much land to grow herbs and vegetables, just some pots and good garden soil would work. This year my specialty garden project is Herbs, using them all from Mint Sweet Tea to Italian sauce enticed by fresh Sweet Basil. My favorite has been the Dill, my son and I have been making Pickles and they are super yummy! So in honor of my always picking and there for me Herbs I decided to make a set of Vintage style signs. My vintage dresser has always had this bum drawer so I decided to do away with the inners and just make it a "dummie" drawer. I just couldn't throw away the beautiful pieces of vintage oak.
I love the look of the aged wood against the black walls. You never really know what you have hanging around the house that you can make into a treasure and the best part is you are making something very old new again.
These are the Herbs that I am actually growing and using allot of.
I did not use a stencil , I wanted it to seem "Farm Stand" such a great piece of my past. If you are from Ct. you will know what I am talking about. I would go to the Geramia Farm Stand with my mom or grandma and fill brown bags with fresh grown corn , tomatoes and Herbs as well. Yes we have farm stands here also but as a child it was way more fun!
I had some artificial Herbs so I attached some small bundles.
Herbology, the study of Herbs including their medicinal purposes .
Have any great old wood hanging around your house? Why not make a kitchen sign?
Thank you for stopping in, until next time get crafty and make a sign.

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
