Meet Kerri

Hi! Thank you for stopping by to visit! My name is Kerri and I started blogging in 2009 when my second daughter was born. Since then I have returned to teaching full time in the classroom but I still have a passion for blogging.
I love coffee, all things rustic, vintage, clean eating and simple living.

Thank You Martha

I have been in the middle of a few projects for Christmas. My white pinecone wreath is still a work in progress, but I am halfway there.

Last winter I found a large bag of crocheted doilies at one of my local church thrift shops and I have been looking for some inspiration to use them. I really like these stiffened doily snowflakes from Martha.

My husband and I really would like to make an advent calendar with our girls that they will be able to use each year and be able to pass on to their children. I have seen ones similar to this one from Martha and I am really thinking of making one like this that can be hung with twine and clothespins.

And I really love these ornaments from Martha made with recycled Christmas cards! What a clever way to recycle them. I do usually try to save them and repurpose them as gift tags the following Christmas.

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and a creative week!


  1. Thanks for sharing! I really like the Christmas card idea. That's awesome! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! :)

  2. Hi Kerri,
    Delighted to discover a kindred vintage heart! I remember making those ornaments from used christmas cards as a girl, some things are just timeless! Your vintage store is very cute:-)
