Estate Sale Treasures: Friday's Find #260


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! In addition to my usual thrifting haunts and yard sales, I've been to a few good estate sales lately, where I found this interesting piece. The seller referred to it as a vintage magazine rack. I can see it could certainly be used for that. However, when I wasn't able to find any similar ones online, I became curious. Maybe it has another use and name--if you know, please leave me a comment! Of course, you know I'm going to repurpose it anyway...

15 Minute Emoji Tic-Tac-Toe Game


Happy Monday, Friends! Today I'm sharing a fun 15 minute project that you can craft with little ones. Inspired by Ginger Grand's love for emojis, I created a fresh spin on the classic game before he arrived and then let him make his own during his annual summer visit. He loved coming up with different emojis. It would also make a great gift or travel game. What kid--or adult for that matter--doesn't love emojis?
