Making Progress–DIY Salvaged Siding Wall

I shared earlier in January about my plans to makeover my booth space at Antique Company Mall. Like most everything, it has taken me a little longer than I would have liked to get it all done, and the progress has been slow going.  That’s just life right now though–most projects get done in baby […] Read more…

Uncle Jim and Santa, Free Printable Vintage Photo
