Vintage Postcard

Vintage Style Wood Postcard DIY

I love everything Vintage! I was very blessed to come across some beautiful Vintage post cards at an estate sale. These post cards date back to the early 1900’s. In this video you will see a piece of wood transformed into a unique piece of art. These Vintage Style Post Cards are so fun to make, plus they can be mailed to that special person. How cool would it be to receive one of these through the mail? Happy Crafting!

Better with Age

Aging Wood Using Better With Age

I honestly had no idea how this would turn out. I am surprised my hubby let me experiment, but after 33 years of marriage, he is getting easier to convince. This was a fun technique. I stripped the table first, but didn’t strip it all. The outcome is so cool. My hubby even liked it.

Gourmet Pantry

My Top 5 Favorite Pantry Items

Food is good for the soul, especially when it’s comfort food! That’s why we started Jessie’s Gourmet Pantry, to hand-select good products that not only taste good, but bring you comfort and remind you of home. While I don’t like picking favorites because I think they’re all special in their own way, here is a list of my top five favorite pantry items that you can buy today, in stores or in my online shop!

1. Peach Serrano Jam

In our pantry, we carry two brands of jams and jellies. While I enjoy the products from both, my favorite jam so far has been the Peach Serrano Jam by Lagniappe Spice Company in Cookeville, Tennessee. My favorite way to eat this jam is on a warm bagel with cream cheese. The sweet and savory combination makes a perfect breakfast or mid-day snack!

2. Berry Cabernet Tea

All tea that I carry in my pantry is from Octavia Tea which produces high quality, gourmet tea with unique blends and full flavors. The tea that I have almost every night and have fallen in love with is their Berry Cabernet! I use one of my small serving diffuser pots to steep the tea leaves, and then add a spoonful of honey to my cup before pouring in the delicious tea itself. This is the kind of tea that brings comfy, cozy feelings along with all the health benefits that come with a daily cup of tea.

3. Old Tavern Beer Bread Mix

This bread mix is made by Mimi’s Mountain Mixes, which I love supporting because the Mimi behind it all uses some of her proceeds to help women and children’s shelters. To top it off, her mixes are easy and make delicious bread! Like she says on the box, just add your beer of choice. I don’t drink alcohol, but the beer definitely does something to make this bread work! Feel good buying this product because you’re not only getting yourself a treat, but helping others as well.

4. White Chocolate Raspberry No Bake Cheesecake mix

You read that right! NO BAKE. That will bring a smile to anyone’s face, especially my friends who find themselves to be baking-challenged. All you need to make this delicious cake is cream cheese, Cool Whip or something equivalent, and a pre-made graham cracker crust you can pick up at any grocery store. You can also make your own crust, but the pre-made ones can taste just as heavenly. 

5. Spinach dip mix

I’ve always been a fan of spinach and spinach artichoke dips. Our family buys some every year as part of our traditional Christmas Eve feast (for 4). Next year we’ll be able to make our own dip with this delicious mix from Rabbit Creek Farms! All you need is some sour cream and your dip will be ready in seconds. It’s delicious, and perfect with bread, chips, or crackers. Next time you have guests over you can tell them you made the dip! How satisfying is that?

Whether you’re having guests over or it’s a quiet night in, these pantry items will bring joy to any home looking for some feel-good comfort food. You can find all of these items in my pantries at Sweet Home Vintage Market and Uptown Vintage Market. Most of these are available in my online shop and I’m working on getting the rest added as soon as possible.

Let me know how you enjoy these items, and what your favorites have been! I love to hear from my customers. As always you can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, and check back here for more blog posts!

Sneak Peek: Vintage Postcard Projects

There’s something special about vintage postcards. They have so much history, art, and love poured into them. I started collecting postcards and selling them a couple years ago, and I’ve been working on incorporating them into my happy creations! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the projects I’ve been working on:

1. Wood Transfers

One postcard project I’ve been playing with is transferring the image of a postcard onto painted or stained wood! It can be a difficult process, but the look is well worth it. After successfully transferring the image onto wood, I’ve started to think about other ways I can incorporate this method into my furniture makeovers. Stay tuned to see if I can make that happen!

2. Digital Art

One advantage to having these postcards in the 21st century means I can produce high quality scanned images of them. To be able to have these beautiful works of art to play with in creating digital art has been a pleasure. Some of my favorites are the Christmas postcards that I can blow up and place in a custom painted frame. I can’t wait to get that going again when the Holiday season returns! Lord knows it will be here before we know it.

3. Hand Towels

Everyone loves a decorative hand towel. Whether you’re putting it in your guest bathroom or displaying it proudly on your oven door, a well placed hand towel can bring you so much joy. That’s exactly why I’ve been working on my very own hand towel designs. These will feature both images that I have composed myself as well as images of, you guessed it, my vintage postcards! I’ve made some in the past, but I’m working towards making these a regular item in my shops. 

Are You Ready For This??

If you’re anything like me, you’re going to love these vintage postcard projects! I get so much joy from my work, especially when I can be my most creative self. Thank you for taking the time to pop in, and I can’t wait to share these new projects with you!

Custom Orders

5 Ways To Request A Custom Order (And What To Expect)

I’m always open to requests for custom orders! If there’s a piece of furniture that you love but it’s not quite the right color or style, I’m your girl. I also love the challenge of bringing your imagined painting or wall art to life as I’ve done in the past, specifically with beachy pieces like pallet and rope art.

How To Reach Me For Custom Orders

There are a few ways you can get in touch to discuss what I can offer you: 

  1. Facebook Message: this is one of the best ways to get in contact with me. Having this business, I find myself with my phone often checking my business social media accounts. I get instant notifications for Facebook Messenger, as well as the other administrator on my account (my daughter). Feel free to shoot me a message any time, and I will get back to you soon!
  2. Instagram Message: this is another great option because I see my Instagram messages with my Facebook messages. If Facebook isn’t your favorite, I can still see your Instagram messages and will get working with you on your new piece quickly.
  3. Website Form: my website form sends your message to my email where I can reply to you and get the details of your order solidified.
  4. Direct Email: I’ve also listed my email directly on my website and various social media accounts. Feel free to click on this link and send me a message about your order as well!
  5. Give me a call or text: My phone number is available for anyone in the area wishing to reach out to me about a custom order. If you’re busy and just want to get in touch quickly you can text me and we can set up a time to discuss your needs!

What To Expect From The Experience

Once we get in contact about your custom order, we will discuss the details. These include a quote on the price for labor and materials, the time I need to complete the order, and delivery to my studio and back to your loving home. 

These details will vary per project, as certain furniture pieces and art will take more or less time to complete. I’m also happy to help you choose the style/color of your new piece if you’re having trouble with that as well! In the past, I have visited client’s homes in order to properly match colors and other decor. 

Your experience will be personalized and your piece completed with detail and care. Reach out any time to start the conversation!
