World’s Longest Yard Sale – What We Bought

Now I have told you how we fared at our stops in Tennessee and Kentucky at The World’s Longest Yard Sale, but I have yet to show you any real pictures of our purchases, until now.  You ask, and you shall receive. Below are a few of the smaller items we picked up along the way, which include a few old wooden crates, a vintage

World’s Longest Yard Sale – Kentucky

For the second part of our trip we decided to concentrate on Cambellsville and Frankfort, Kentucky.  I would like to say that it was a smooth transition from one state to the other, however that wouldn’t be entirely true.  Getting lost in rural Kentucky can be a little frustrating as the roads wind and the scenery repeats itself with barn after barn and cow after

The World’s Longest Yard Sale – Tennessee

We didn’t really know what to expect when we headed down south for the Longest Yard Sale.  We had an idea, sure, but we were newbies.  My mother, sister and I left from Connecticut and drove to Roanoke Virginia, after stopping at the Natural Bridge where we took pictures, and hiked about five miles, unintentionally.  Then we headed to Nashville where we spent two full days

Nashville – A Honky Tonk Good Time

I certainly wouldn’t be bashful if I was from Nashville.  What a great city, and what a fabulous time we had at our first stop on our road trip to the Longest Yard Sale! While Broadway Street is not very long, it took us a long time to walk it.  The fluorescent signs of every bar and honky-tonk light up your path and beg you to

Favorite Finds – Floor Clock

When shopping at flea markets there are so many fabulous pieces that one can find! Therefore I would like to incorporate a new blog category called Favorite Finds! Above you will see one of my own favorite flea market finds, a Swedish Mora Floor Clock replica. When I saw this clock, I knew I had to have it, and for $30 why not?  I knew

I Saw the Sign – PMC Fundraiser

I love any reason to paint a wooden sign, especially when it is for a fundraiser.  Recently, my friend Maura Dacey hosted an event for the Pan Mass Challenge and I was happy to donate an item to such a great cause, and attend such a wonderful event. After I decided on a fitting phrase of “Keep Calm and Ride On”, I got to work sanding down my

All My Bags are Packed…

Only I am not leaving on a jet plane, rather driving 15 hours, but hey it is worth it! Can you imagine all of the amazing pieces I will find at the Longest Yard Sale?! Ok so what is this trip I keep talking about?Well if you are a flea market and yard sale lover like I am, then it is heaven! And if you

Guest DIY Blogger Series: Styles by Holly

Hello fellow Twine and Vines fans! I’m so excited to be a guest blogger for my sister. Let me start off by telling you a little bit about myself.  Along with my sister I also love DIY projects, furniture makeovers and all things vintage, but my favorite items to create are jewelry and accessories! I thought I would start off the first in a series

Throw Back Thursday – Rain or Shine it’s Party Time

In honor of the recent one year wedding anniversary of my sister and her husband, I thought I would take it back to last Spring, when we hosted a garden party themed wedding shower.  With the help of friends and family we put together an event that was both colorful while rustic and the perfect outdoor atmosphere for celebrating, socializing and a little day drinking

Let’s Table This – Glass Top Pallet Table

Working with pallets has become a new obsession over the past couple of years.  When my father isn’t bringing some home from his work, I am keeping my eye out for free ones.  Anyway, they are great cheap ways to use wood, as long as you clean and treat them properly.  I use heat-treated pallets that never carry food, and I power wash and paint/stain/seal
