Fun upcycled bags made by Roost

So you really can't tell in this picture as I was too tired to find my camera but the ticking is actually light blue and the one handle is actually navy blue.  All materials were 100% recycled or vintage (even the thread was salvaged)  I don't usually use color in my designs I tend to stick with the neutral colors but the light blue ticking was screaming at me when I saw it so I had to snatch it up.  I am also working on a fun red fabric rose pin to finish these off.

Roost Projects

Recently I have been on the hunt for some garden art for my tomato plants and sweat peas to climb and everything that I have ADORED has been about $18-$20 each stake.  For me this is a little much for a seasonal item especially when I need 3 of them.  

 So here is me being cheap and still maintaining my chic vintage look even in my garden. 

 I took the door knobs cut them in half and welded them to the re-bar whole project took about 15 minutes.

This project cost me $6 and I got 3 garden stakes out of that expense. I will tell you that normally vintage door knobs depending on the size and design are around $10-$30 for a pair.  However I happen to get mine from my grandma in a box that she was getting rid of.  The re-bar is about $2 each piece at Lowe's or Dome Depot.  So if you were going to tackle this project it would likely cost you closer to $20 for (2)  But still is a much cheaper option for garden art!

Thanks for checking in today! 

I'll be posting more pictures of some soft goods that I am sewing for the Farm Chicks Show in less than 2 weeks.

Fun finds for Farm Chicks!

So this weekend I was busy Junkin' in the Salem area and came across these great finds for Farm Chicks coming up in less than 2 weeks!  I feel like I hit the jackpot with all those scales!

Well my hoarding time is winding down and I can finally pull out those great "original" finds that I have been saving in storage for the Farm Chicks Event.  Here is the trailer as of this afternoon.  It's about 1/3 full and gradually filling up more each day...

Just a reminder...

I know that it is supposed to be a nasty weekend but if you get some free time on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 10:00am-5:00pm  
I am having a family garage sale.  Lots of started projects, home stuff, fabrics, car parts, hovercraft (seriously no joke), tools, lots of junk too!
