Craft a Vintage Vibe with new Buttermilk Basin + giveaway

Decorate for today by dipping into the past with a little help from Buttermilk Basin. In her latest book, Stacy West guides us through a cheery assortment of small wool-appliqué projects sure to spark happy memories and fresh moments of joy.

Let’s hear all about it from the author.


Hello! It’s Stacy from Buttermilk Basin! I’m dropping by to share a few tidbits about my NEW (and delightful) book, Buttermilk Basin’s Vintage Vibe. This book is near and dear to my heart. It came about when Jennifer Keltner and Karen Soltys of Martingale were tossing around ideas with me. They thought it would be cool to take inspiration from vintage items I’ve collected.

I LOVE a good hunt for all things vintage, items that bring back warm memories and supply daily inspiration. So naturally, I jumped at the opportunity!

To take this book to an even cooler level, I got to be a part of the photo shoot—the entire book was photographed AT MY HOME! The timing was perfect, because we’d recently moved into a new farmhouse with a wonderful neutral palette.

I gathered my vintage collections and placed each in its own tote. That way, Jennifer and her team would have plenty of options for setting up photo vignettes. What I didn’t expect was how she saw my props in a new light. If you look closely at the photos in the book, you’ll see not only the projects displayed in beautiful settings, but also details that many would overlook, such as logos on my vintage items that I hadn’t noticed, bobbins of wound thread stacked perfectly on a vintage shelf, or my FAVE, the Vintage Cat and Owl Ornaments displayed over an old drawer that holds spools of thread.

As day two of the photo shoot approached, I was still LOVING being a part of this journey! It was the first time I could sit back during a photo shoot, relax, and let the team work their magic. Some might ask if it was hard for me not to be more involved. Actually, I felt the exact opposite. I loved being involved from the sidelines—it was refreshing and inspiring. When you are in good hands, you can simply trust their process and enjoy the moments. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Before I knew it, two vintage elves stole the show and took the photo shoot to a whole new level. Jennifer had named them Ivan and Zsa Zsa. They are tucked in here and there, throughout the Christmas portion of the book, and they became larger than life as they styled the photos. Those elves brought so much mischief to the photo shoot and kept us on our toes. I guarantee you, they will make you smile!

It was hard to see the photo shoot come to an end, but the memories, laughs, and results of those two days of photography were simply stunning. Now you get to enjoy the masterpiece we created! Cherish the details and, more importantly, start creating your own projects to decorate with and savor for years to come.

Happy stitching,

Stacy

    Elr on February 20, 2020

  • My dogs (whether I want them or not) always seem to have parts of themselves in my photos…noses, paws, dog butts….

    —Ali on February 20, 2020
  • I would choose the picnic baskets to display. It reminds me of simpler times when families or couples would spread out a beautiful quilt under a shady tree and have a wonderful picnic lunch and enjoy their surroundings.

    Kathy on February 20, 2020
  • I would use the photographs of my parents and grandparents and some of the kitchy kitchen items that have been passed to me. The egg sizer is one of my favorites.

    —Darla Epperson on February 20, 2020
  • Definitely the vintage kitchen items that I inherited from my aunt!
    Cast iron pans, bowls, utensils.
    This book looks AMAZING!

    —Jetta on February 20, 2020
  • A photo shoot at my house would involve an old upright player piano, an old oak secretary, a few antique quilts and odds and ends of knick knacks and an old toy sewing machine. My sister has the antique treadle so I would invite her to visit with the treadle in tow. Looks like a fabulous book.

    —Janey on February 20, 2020
  • I would use some of the quilts I have made along with my green depression glass.

    —COLLEEN A BASILE on February 20, 2020

    —Kay Sanderford on February 20, 2020
  • My cocker spaniel Lucy.

    —JoannaQ on February 20, 2020
  • I have an old window containing postcards from my grandparents. That would be my prop. Thanks for the inspiration.

    —Brenda Bartocci on February 20, 2020
  • I would have to use an old blanket chest that has been in my family for generations. It is cherry which has darkened and was definitely crafted from something else (not certain what). It is of a very simple design with clean lines which would make the perfect back drop for Jennifer’s whimsical designs.

    —ADK Kate on February 20, 2020
  • My 1906 mahogany upright grand piano! the 1940’s reproduction buffet that was my first clothes chest when we married, and has been a buffet for years. Three tiny 1930’s dolls with different pastel clothes that sit on a tiny bench, and the newest is a repro of the 1950’s Christmas angels that spell out NOEL that my mother had… sadly most of mine is packed away: my blue willow collection for one, because my space is limited until I retire and move out of Denver! Stacey, I love your "vibe" and is exactly where I tend in my décor wishes! I’m too busy quilting for others now, but when I retire, I have sooooo many projects for me on the list! You’ve upped my game for sure! thanks for the inspiration. Sharon in Colorado (for about another year…)

    —Sharon S on February 20, 2020

  • I would like to use my grandmother’s sewing tin, wooden spools, and other items.

    —Regina Harris on February 20, 2020
  • I’d use my cat! Every time I pull my phone out she thinks she needs to have her picture taken.

    —Annette on February 20, 2020
  • Thank you,thank you,thank you, words can not tell you what these pictures have done for me. As you get older you have so many little things that each mean more than the next. How great to put them together in a picture to save forever! I am so excited, and plan on printing my pictures up in corners to write letters to friends that gave me each little gift! wow thanks, stitchesbykathy@cox.net

    Danette Stankovich on February 20, 2020
  • I just finished making my granddaughter a hedgehog quilt adorned by churn dashes set in a beautiful garden scene that would definitely be a prop I would use in my photo shoot. It just makes me smile every time I look at it. My German heritage certainly shines through with that quilt. It really reminds me of the time my daughter and brother and I went to Germany to reconnect with our German relatives. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Ann West on February 20, 2020
  • I love the elves, and wish I had been at that photo shoot! If I had a photo shoot at my house, I would use my antique drafting table in the photos. It is from the 1880s, and I use it both as a table for my rotary cutting mat and as a design board. It has a large 48 by 36 surface and a top that can be angled or flat. It has a wonderful patina – meaning lots of scrapes, scratches and dings. 😊 I purchased it at a yard sale several years ago, and have used it ever since.

    —Barbara on February 20, 2020
  • I have lots of family heirlooms that I would use in a photo shoot like my great grandparents oil lamp and china from my grandmother.

    —Janice Mc Laren on February 20, 2020
  • This book looks intriguing. I love all the buttermilk basin patterns and have made so many. Love them.

    —Beverly kiewel on February 20, 2020

    —Nancy on February 20, 2020
  • I would use quilts that my grandmother made and the Tea Set my husband brought to me from London 43 years ago, when we were engaged ❤️

    —Lois on February 20, 2020
  • I would use an old honey sign that my grandfather, a beekeeper, hung outside his house where he sold honey; an old sweetgrass basket that my mom used for sewing notions; a Raggedy Ann doll that my grandmother made me when I was little; my dad’s deputy sheriff and town constable badges; oh, the list just goes on and on…

    —Dottie MACOMBER on February 20, 2020
  • Definitely my quilts and perhaps a few collectibles would be in a photo shoot at my house!

    —CARLA ELLIOTT on February 20, 2020
  • If there were a photo shoot at your place, which cherished objects would you use as props?
    Well I have quilts hanging on the wall that would look pretty nice.
    But for little objects "old fashioned" business equipment, like a typewriter-chuckle. We moved it into the storage room.

    —Barb Grant on February 20, 2020
  • Like Stacy, I have a little collection of pie birds and tiny oil cans. I think I would have to add into my photo shoot my pin cushions and sock monkeys. The book looks adorable!

  • I would use many cherished quilts, vintage jewelry, sewing machines, old rulers and vintage wooden spools.

    Maxine O'Donnell on February 20, 2020
  • I have an old pickling crock about 5 gallons. I don’t have a cute pantry however, I still think a photo of a quilt in a pantry with lots of jars of colorful jams and a large pickling crock would look cute.

  • We have a small chair that was my husband’s as a child. Probably about the only thing around here deemed cherished. Being an army brat with many moves, we had to divest ourselves of many items. So, not many ‘cherished’ items left.

    —Marie on February 20, 2020
  • My child size electric iron (which my mom taught me to use to iron handkerchiefs and pillow cases). A tiny singer oil can. Yarn wrapped bobbins. A mustard yellow, very aged vanity bench. 🤔

    —Patty F. on February 20, 2020
  • I would photograph the vintage table in my kitchen. It is the bottom half of a "possum belly" baker’s cabinet. It has the two rounded drawers in the bottom that were used to hold flour. I have placed collectibles on top like my antique apple peeler, cherry pitter and coffee grinder.

    It is special because we found it on the back porch of an old farmhouse that we moved into. My Mom put a lot of work into it and refinished it beautifully.

    —Pam Fritz on February 20, 2020
  • I would use my vintage tea-sets and my quilts of course!

I have a huge collection of buttons, lace, table linens, tin picnic hampers, pyrex and fire king. I am totally a vintage type of girl. I am also a HUGE fan of Buttermilk Basin! Thank you for offering this giveaway.

    —Karen Seitz on February 20, 2020

    It is from Niagara Falls, and has pictures of the falls on the tea pot and the tea cups. The antique cabinet I house them in would be beautiful also. This book looks like it has a lot of fun projects.

    —kelly kalitta on February 20, 2020
  • My grandfather’s chair from the Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

    —JoAnne Hawks on February 20, 2020
  • The two things that come to mind that I would want to use in a photo shoot would be an oak cradle my father built for me when I was pregnant with my first child, it was built in 1979 and reminds me of my Dad and his wood working skills and my daughter who sadly enough died before she could even sleep in it. I would also want to include a wooden mantle clock that belonged to my husbands family that proudly graces our mantle and reminds of us his folks. I feel honored to have both of these items in my own home to remind me of others and the days that have gone by.

  • I remember having elves like Stacey’s. We’ve been traveling during the holidays so most of my Christmas items don’t get displayed like they use to. Thank goodness for grandparents & the treasures taken from their homes. The treadle sewing machine that had me sewing my 1st line of stitches, sewing tins, button tins, holiday post cards from Germany, quilts, crocks, gilded oval picture frames that hold mirrors now, rolling pins. A wash stand & secretary made by a distant family woodworker. When I mentioned post cards they were used for so many occasions. I just found 1 of my grandparents that was sent as a Christmas greeting. So today we get yearly letters & school pictures or Shutterfly & think that’s so up to date. Not so. Guess I would be digging in closets, drawers & boxes to pull out items for the photo shoot proving to the hubby, yes these items are worthwhile.

    Jan on February 25, 2020
