It’s one of those really proud moments when you are asked to be a part of someone’s special day with something that you love doing! That was the case for me when a very lovely couple on New Year’s Eve just past, asked me to provide them with a lemonade stand and 6 Vintage Games on […]
Whilst I love this old Letter/Bill holder with the old cars on the front with all its bumps and lumps, it was in desperate need of a spruce up. So with some left over Paper Bag that I used on my Paper Bag Side Table, I set about to give this cool organisational piece a new Paper Bag […]
Even though it is supposed to be Summer over here in Australia we have been experiencing some very wet and cold conditions. We are usually firing up the BBQ left right and centre with lots of yummy salads. Instead, we are eating lots of warm comfort food!!! So while poking around in the fridge for something for […]

It truly is so hard to believe that 2015 is coming to an end in only a couple of days now! I’m sitting here scratching my head asking myself……”Where did that all time go ??” Even though I have learnt so much and had so much fun this past year there is plenty more to […]

There’s something so special about Christmas! Especially as it is a time for family and friends to get together and enjoy each other. I find that when things are handmade it just makes things so much more precious. One of the traditions that we have in our house is making a Christmas Countdown and I […]
I found this plain and boring tray at my local thrift store and with Christmas not too far around the corner I decided to do something a little Christmassy and make a Quick Easy Santa Treat Tray.
I am slowly making my way through my pile of goodies that I have stored in my studio and this gal has to be one of my most favourite pieces to give a makeover too so far! She was found at my local thrift store so today I’m sharing how I gave her a French […]
Who else is guilty of hanging onto old jars??? I know I certainly am! I just LOVE all the different styles of jars available! Small ones, big ones, shapely ones….. All interesting in their own unique way. Sharing one way you can turn them into Quick Easy Homey Vases.
Back when I started Raggedy Bits over 18 years ago, I would often go to markets to sell my goodies. I had hoped that my regular presence would get my name out there and grow my little dream into reality! Whilst the experience was lots of fun and I met lots of lovely people, not […]
One of the downsides of going to the markets pretty well much every weekend, sometimes my goodies get a little damaged through transport or the elements like the rain and the wind! This happened with this sweet paisley clock. It got a little damp from the rain and some of the paper that it was covered […]
I have always had a thing for old tape measures and wanted to somehow apply it to a piece of furniture that needed some lovin!! Who am I kidding…. I have a thing for allllll old things! Sharing how I transformed a dated side table into a Tape Measure Side Table.
