Handmade Sign Giveaway for Instagram Followers

Once upon a time, there was this fella, who loved to work with metal. He had a sweetheart who loved being crafty.  The fella cut out pieces of metal for his sweetheart to paint cute little pictures on. And pretty soon, the fella and his sweetheart got married.  And made a home. Sometimes, he still cuts out metal for her to paint on.  Twenty-five years later. Except now she prefers her metal with a little rust on it. Some things just get better with age. 😉 Follow @riggstownroad on Instagram this week for a chance to win this handmade, hand…

Hello, Chippy Little Bird

Spray paint is my best friend.  Really.  We’ve been close ever since I discovered how easy (and cheap) it is to take something I already own, was given, or thrifted, and make it better.  Like this chippy little bird. There’s just something about chippy little birds that I love.  Kind of like sunshine.  They are sweet and happy, but still rustic.  They have that “been around for a long time” look. So, I decided to make myself one.  I bought a little bird from the dollar tree, and gave him a makeover.  It was…

Free Sunshine Printable

“You are my sunshine…my only sunshine…You make me happy…when skies are gray… You’ll never know dear…how much I love you…Please don’t take…my sunshine away…” This song takes me back.  As in, back to kindergarten.  Amazing how something so small and simple can transport you across the years that way.  It’s also something I’ve sung to all my babies, as I’m sure most of you have.  Aaaand I have a little niece who is quite…

Don’t Tell the Others, but This One’s My Favorite

You’ve seen my hutch before, in other posts, and maybe on instagram (riggstownroad), but you’ve never been formally introduced. So… let me introduce you to my favorite piece of furniture.  Don’t tell the others. 😉 She was always beautiful, but she recently got a makeover, and now she just shines. ; Two things I loved about this girl, were the storage part and the display part.  The display part had a downside though.  It limited the storage.  I could only store things on those shelves if they were styled to my liking and coordinated with…

The Sock Basket

How are those resolutions coming along? My word for the year is ORGANIZE. True, it’s something I already like to do, but there are some areas around the house I can’t ever seem to stay on top of.  Hello, paper pile. I do like to organize in ways that are very easy to set up and maintain…and that look cute. 😉 I’m sharing an EASY organization tip today over at Busy Mom’s Helper. Join me there and leave a comment to share your favorite tips! &nbsp…

New Year, New Look, New Site

Yay!!!  I made the move to word press from blogger, and as you can tell, the new address for Riggstown Road is riggstownroad.com.  I chose to do it myself,  (well, me and Google!) so it’s a learning process which will continue as I add new features to the blog. I thought I would start the New Year, New Look, New Site with a look at some favorite posts from the past year. First, everyone’s favorite food post: This $1/1 Minute Salsa   and everyone’s favorite parenting post (and overall favorite!): Consequence Chart…
