You know how you have those blog friends that are more than just “blog friends” but they become “in real life friends” too! That’s our friend Kelly of Eclectically Vintage. Ever since we had our podcast with Kelly and Kari, we’ve spent many nights laughing and chatting on the phone. It’s been such a joy for us to connect at this level with gals we’ve only known through words and pictures on a page. We wanted to make sure our reader here at the fence knew Kelly as well! She is so talented and funny, we know you’ll love her as much as we do!
Hi At the Picket Fence fans and thanks to the fabulous sisters Heather & Vanessa for the invite! I’m Kelly from Eclectically Vintage and I love mixing vintage and modern to create unique spaces. Today I’m sharing some of my favorites:
It’s a Cinch Projects
Things you can whip up in just minutes – really!
DIY Song Lyric Plate
I used lyrics from Springsteen’s Born to Run (I’m a Jersey girl after all!) but you could customize with a poem, wedding song, favorite quote … The best part – less than $2!
Vintage Music Sheet Table Runner
This makes me sing since it took less than 3 minutes to make!
Paper Parasol Wreath
Doesn’t this wreath just scream “party”!
3 Ingredient Lemon Salt Scrub
Why pay big bucks for scrubs when you can make your own with 3 simple things (and it smells amazing)!
Step Ladder Bird Bath
The birds think I’m the cats meow now that this is in my garden.
So there you have it and the secret is out … I’m lazy and have a short attention span so these simple projects are perfect! I’d love you to stop by and check out all My Projects. Or check out My House Tour and I’ll show you how I took a 100+ year old “crack house” (my hubs words) and turned it into a unique place to show off all my cool vintage finds. Like My Collection Filled Dining Room …
you’ll stop by Eclectically Vintage by for a visit. Thanks so much Heather & Vanessa for the invite!

Love Kelly & had a blast hanging out with her in NYC at Blogher!! Love, love her house, I could move right in. She’s a special new friend now & I can’t wait til you get to Atlanta either, Heather. Although selfishly, I wish you were not going to be on the southside of town, that’s a haul from me. 🙂
Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads says
I love Kelly and the way she elevates ordinary objects to a whole new level!
Shari @ turnstylevogue.com says
Kelly is awesome – and so are the both of you. Have a great day today!
The wall of plates looks amazing.
Sheila @sZinteriors says
Love Kelly’s style and flair for projects… And these projects have me heading to my garage to see if I have the parts and pieces to make a birdbath, too! Such a great idea! …and so nice to meet you Heather and Vanessa 🙂
I loooove the table runner… and I bought porcelain pens to try to personalize some mugs but haven’t gotten around to that just yet. 😉
Good Time Charlie says
How fun you have Kelly today! She is my vintage collecting/hunting/decorating idol, with a wicked sense of humor to boot. I am inspired to try the scrub. This time, I might actually make something that doesn’t involve a can of paint!
Carmel @ Our Fifth House says
I think the plate is how I first “met” Kelly – love her style!

I ‘met’ Kelly when she reached out to me and encouraged me as a new blogger (and even featured my blog!)…she is really a sweetheart as well as a great ‘decorator’!
Heidi @ Decor & More says
Love Kelly and her outrageous thrifting skills!! Her home is divine and wouldn’t you love for her to mix up a batch of martinis for us?? Thanks, Heather and Vanessa, for the fun visit with one of my favorites!
Barb @ The Everyday Home (formerly Grits and Glamour) says
Love her house and especially the fin way she repurposes furniture and such for her garden. Hr dresser garden is one of my faves.
I can’t wait to meet her at Southern Bloggers Conference. 🙂
Shirley@Housepitality Designs says
Kelly is one creative lady!!…I look forward to seeing what amazing thing she has created or found…Love her sense of style and especially her sense of humor!…Great feature Heather and Vanessa!
Everyone needs to do at least one of these projects. Seriously. They are all amazing….but my favorite still is that music DIY lyric plate!
How nice to have Kelly visit us on your blog! Love her ideas and her home is so pretty!
