Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home had a great Easter Weekend Junkin’ Finds.  She found several things that are on my junking “want” list.  Great patina abounds on her finds.  My favorite find is an old rusty golf ball basket and a model Eiffel Tower.  Go check it out, she only hit three sales and spend a mere $8.  I would love to go junkin’ with Amber anytime!

Dany from My Little Old World has made me smile in a big way. Not only has she shared with us the teacup and other goodies she received as a participant in The Enchanting Rose 10th Teacup & Mug Exchange, but she also shares with us her adorable Augustus bunny rabbit as well. If you’ve ever thought of joining in the teacup exchange, this is the post to read. And as far as adorable pets are concerned, I have always wanted a lop eared rabbit. After seeing the photos of Augustus my desire for a rabbit has been rekindled — just don’t tell my husband! Thank you, Dany,for making me smile!

Cecilia’s Pick

When it comes to setting a charming vintage tablescape, Lora from Create & Ponder is a girl after my own heart. In Add Luscious Layers to Your Tablescape, she shared step by step how to style a gorgeous garden-inspired table set with lovely vintage layers. These pottery serving pieces caught my eye, but you really must pay her a visit to enjoy the attention Lora pays to every single detail of her sweet spring tablescape.

Karee at The Vintage Chateau loves charm bracelets. Her book club recently read The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, an enchanting story of a widower who discovers a charm bracelet that his wife never wore. Arthur set out to learn the story behind each charm. Karee understands the need to know about each charm and makes the analogy that a charm bracelet is a “scrapbook” with each charm bringing to mind a special memory. Karee had so many charms she even created a charm necklace. She plans to start a charm bracelet for her only granddaughter’s eighth birthday so she can start making her own “jewelry scrapbook”. So now I’m off to find the charm bracelet from my teens.

Mickie from The Speckled Hen Cottage brought back warm memories from my childhood with her recent post on Ye Old Curiosity Shop’s green transferware by Royal. Mickie’s been collecting it for quite some time now and she shares with us some unexpected additions to her collection. She also shares how she started out on her collecting journey. It’s a lovely story, and definitely worth a read!

Pop over to see the rest of Paula’s vintage treasures!

Jill at Bella Rosa Antiques is an avid collector of LuRay Pastels dinnerware.  She was at Goodwill with her daughter on another quest when she discovered some of her prized dinnerware but almost left a few pieces behind until she remembered that Goodwill organizes by color.  She ended up finding quite a few pieces to add to her collection.  Try as I may, I haven’t found any LuRay Pastels at the thrift stores near me.  So my hat’s off to Jill for making such a fantastic vintage find of Hidden Treasures at a Thrift Shop.

Guest Feature: Victoria from Dazzle While Frazzled shares a simple yet darling Easter centerpiece idea. I’ve always been a huge Peeps fan, so this DIY is right up my alley! All you need are a few things you may already have in your stash: skewers, some plastic eggs, pipe cleaners, construction paper, and a hole punch. Oh, and Peeps, of course! And if you don’t have Peeps it’s a great excuse to go out and get some! Did I mention that it takes no time at all? Check out her DIY 10-Minute Easter Peeps Centerpiece for the lowdown on how to make one for your Easter table!

Jann at Have A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson has been quite busy helping with an estate sale. In the process, she has unwrapped some wonderful vintage treasures, including one of my favorites, pink Crinoline. In Afternoon Tea, she sets a delightful table featuring the lovely vintage dishes with an adorable Miss Prim kitty teapot and a gorgeous vintage quilt from a previous estate sale. Absolutely, charming, Jann! When should we arrive for tea?

The idea of shopping a Paris market is romantic enough, but add to that a personal photo shoot and you have a dream come true! Amy from My Brocante Treasures gives us a taste of what the city has to offer in My Paris Market Photo Shoot. She shares a few buying tips and some of her a-mazing purchases, like linens to die for, decorated china, and beautiful blue enamelware canisters. We so enjoyed Amy’s photo shoot and had a ball seeing all the vintage and antiques that the market had to offer.

Florence from Vintage Southern Picks created a charming Spring- Easter Centerpiece with a Vintage Birdcage and a few other spring treasures.  Florence put the centerpiece together in such a way that it can easily be converted from an Easter Centerpiece to spring by simply removing the Easter eggs.  So versatile and totally delightful!

Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle has managed to achieve a shiplap wall look in her son’s room without using any power tools! I’ve toyed with the shiplap idea for some time now, and I’m more convinced than ever after reading her tutorial that SHIPLAP With NO Power Tools is a distinct possibility in my future! Maybe in yours, too? Thanks for the inspiration, Lindsey!

Cecilia’s Pick

Nancy from Slightly Coastal says that Easter is her favorite holiday which is certainly evident by the absolutely swoon worthy Easter Tablescape she created. Her charming nature inspired setting is so enchanting I could almost imagine the butterfly flitting about the table–not to mention those darling golden birds! Delightful, Nancy!

Mandy gave us a project last week on her blog From Splinter to Splendor that’s after my own heart. She took a hunk of old, curvy wood and turned it into a fabulous As For Me and My House Sign. Though its previous-life-purpose is a bit shocking, it makes a lovely, vintage looking sign, perfect for over her mantel.

Leanna from Faeries and Fauna shared a tour of her charming home decorated for spring. The decor throughout her home shows a light but lovely spring touch.  Something as simple as toning down her three-tier stand with birch bark makes a huge impact.  My favorite vignette is the two rabbit sentries guarding their prize carrots in a galvanized tub but be sure not to miss the giant carrots Leanna made for her granddaughters. Hop over to the Faeries and Fauna Spring Home Tour to see which vignette is your favorite.

You don’t have to be a wine drinker to love Pat from Bringing French Country Home’s latest estate sale find. You just have to love French vintage. And that I do! Pat was lucky enough to score a rare French vintage wine crate that I would have fought for myself. She brought it home and styled it beautifully. To be honest I’m jealous but in the best way! Stop by and visit her French Wine Crate Find. Awesome score, Pat!

True confession time: As an avid gardener, I’ll admit that until very recently, I’ve been somewhat close minded when it comes to faux flowers. However, after discovering some very thrifty and realistic looking blooms for my latest project, I’ve adjusted my attitude. Jennifer at Decorated Chaos not only knows this secret, but in How to Shop for Faux Flowers she also shares her tips for arranging realistic looking bouquets, plus a source that might surprise you! If you’re like me, and not easily convinced, pay Jennifer a visit and see for yourself!

If you enjoy the rustic look of reclaimed wood, then you’ll want to run over to Anika’s DIY Life where Anika takes us step by step the process she went through to Build a DIY Emerson Buffet. She clues us in on how to mimic the look of reclaimed wood in order create her wonderfully handsome buffet–not to be missed.

Melissa’s Antiques is one of my favorite blogs to follow.  Melissa finds the best deals on vintage wares and she buys a lot.  She has antique mall booths and online stores to keep stocked.   Most recently she went to a box lot auction where she won 17 boxes of goodies and 4 “good old quilts” for a mere $20.  She hit the jackpot because those boxes held lots of vintage treasures.  Check out her latest haul at March So Far.  Wowzer!!

Carol from The Red Painted Cottage chases the winter blues away with a unique decorating idea, one that I just love. As a self-professed “antlers lover” I am always fascinated by new and different ways to display antlers. And Carol certainly wins the blue ribbon for her delicately flowered makeover of an old set of antlers that really needed a spring refresh. I’m now on the hunt for another set of antlers that I can gussy up as well! See Carol’s Decorating An Antler For Spring With Tutorial to get the lowdown on how to create your own!

Rita at Panoply shared the absolutely darling–or should I say dah-ling–Breakfast at Tiffany’s Themed Bridal Shower she co-hosted for her niece. As you might imagine from Rita’s previous posts, every detail was covered from framed Audrey Hepburn photos and quotes to adorable Holly Golightly inspired sleep masks for the wedding party. Fortunately, her post included this photo collage because I was having a time choosing just one to share! Drop by and be prepared to be delighted!

I think I’m coming around to the Mid-century Modern way of thinking, especially after seeing the handsome MCM MOD Dresser Makeover by Karin at Art is Beauty. It’s absolute perfection–almost glamorous, and most certainly a show-piece.

Handan at The Navage Patch, the blog she shares with her husband, took an ornate mirror and made it over in a unique way. They took a so-so mirror that was gold and silver and brought out the best in it by painting it white and highlighting the ornate parts with Rub’n Buff.  The finishing touch, adding an Irish blessing using frosted glass spray make this Ornate Mirror Makeover simply splendid.

I love it when someone finds a new purpose for something and it manages to fit perfectly with the season. Laura from Not Just A Trophy Wife has done just that with her Upcycled Chipped Dishes. With spring right around the corner, she shares her way of displaying some much-needed greenery. But not in a traditional pot, mind you. Rather, she planted it inside an old (and much-loved) chipped bowl. It’s a great idea to keep in mind the next time a piece of pottery manages to accidentally hit the floor. Not that that’s ever happened to me….

If you are still getting snow this week, I’ve got some sunny spring inspiration just for you! Tammy, blogger at Patina and Paint created an absolutely gorgeous Spring Floral Arrangement using a cabbage and the DIY favorite–a mason jar. Her project was inspired by Southern Living’s Facebook video but Tammy chose her own favorite flowers for her version and the results are just beautiful! She shares the tutorial and supply list so we can make our own too. Which flowers would you choose?

We had a new-to-us blogger link up last week: Leigh from A Porch with a View. In DIY Chalkboard, she tells us about finding a beautiful, curvy flea market frame and turning it into a fabulous and functional chalkboard. She began blogging last fall and is doing a bang up job. Why not pop over and give her some love–leave a comment, follow her on social media, etc? Be sure to check out JUNKING on her navigation bar–

Rheta from Vintage Eve’s found a pretty little cup and saucer for her shop. The Lady Louise pattern is from the 1940s and made by Syracuse China. Rheta was curious about who they were so she did a bit of research making her a girl after my heart. You know how I love to research my vintage finds.

Last week Lora from Create & Ponder shared with us some truly vintage finds! (I love stories like this one, by the way.) She was lucky enough to receive as a gift a milk crate filled with old bottles that were dug up from the Minneapolis dump a number of years ago. I was intrigued, to say the least when I heard that! Turns out at least three of those bottles are indeed the kind of vintage we all would love to find! Be sure to stop by Antique Bottles to find out the unique history behind each of them.

Tuula blogger at Thrifty Rebel Vintage has been busy as a bee giving her kitchen a head-to-toe thrifty vintage makeover. I have followed and admired her progress, time and time again. This week she proved the importance of DIY perseverance when she ended up hating the paint color resulting from the first attempt on her Kitchen China Cabinet Makeover. Ever resourceful, Tuula mixed her own paint, adding white to the lovely aqua color she used on her kitchen cabinets producing the gorgeous shade here. She then added red polka dot paper to the back of the cabinet for a darling retro-chic finish. Be sure to drop by to see all of the details, including the first color fail and what she used to paper her cabinet!

If there’s one place I regret never having had the chance to visit when we lived in England, it’s a French flea market (or brocante). In her post, My Paris Market Photo Shoot, Amy, who blogs at Brocante Treasures, gives us a real taste of this wonderful French experience. Oh, and my goodness, you should see the treasures she brought home with her–

Charged with the task of refreshing her parent’s laundry room Kristine from The Painted Hive needed a solution to hide their washing machine.  Their laundry room adjoins the main hallway in their house and doesn’t have a dedicated door so it is entirely in the open.  Her solution was to DIY a mini barn door cover-up for the washing machine.  She shares her wonderful tutorial with us so we can install our own mini barn doors in place of ordinary doors wherever space permits.  Check it out at DIY Mini Barn Doors…A Complete Tutorial.

Guest Feature: Sherry from Savvy Apron won my heart over last week with her DIY Chandelier Floor Lamp. I bought a thrift store chandelier many months ago, and have been looking for just the right upcycle solution. I think I’ve found it, and you will, too. It’s a simple tutorial with a stunning outcome. Thanks, Sherry!

In her weekly Creative Friday post, Cecilia, blogger at The B Farm shared her latest project –an upcycled box she created to store her tea. It’s a beauty and you’ll enjoy seeing how she transformed the container but just wait until you see the photos from her trip to England that inspired the project. In Time for Tea, Cecilia takes us on a tour from Bath to London to Stonehenge, to the picturesque village where she captured this lovely cottage. Her photos are simply charming, hop over to see the beauty for yourself!

Last week, Penny from Penny’s Vintage Home Repurposed a Wicker Settee that had seen better days in such a delightfully creative way. I love outside-the-box thinking and this is such a great example of that. Using plants and decorative items purchased at garage sales, she frugally put together a stunning display.

Debra at Shoppe No. 5 recently found a table in the antique mall where she has a booth that desperately needed a makeover.  After a debate with herself, she took it home and gave it an incredible makeover with milk paint and a stencil.  Pay Debra a visit to see all the work that went into A Vintage Table That Needs a Makeover.   I think you will agree that she did an amazing job.

Anika from Anika’s DIY Life shares a fabulous DIY decorating secret that’s one of my personal favorites: contact paper! Check out her examples and tips in How to Decorate with Contact Paper. We recently got a new stainless steel fridge and I’ve been itching to change out our black dishwasher to match. Looks like it will be contact paper to the rescue! (Psst, it’s for countertops, windows, and even floors, too!)

Liz, blogger at Simple Decorating Tips begins her post How I Turned This $10 Piece of Junk into a Masterpiece, with a question.  She asks whether her readers would have purchased the broken clock for $10.  As much as I love a good up cycling challenge, I would have probably answered in the negative and it would have been my loss.  You absolutely must see the before photos to fully appreciate Liz’s creative vision.  Well done, Liz–it is a masterpiece!

Debby, the mastermind behind Debby Goes Shabby, created a magazine cover shot in her post Enchanted Moments, in response to a blogger challenge, and my oh my, what a stunning job she did. Tucking several dozen red roses inside the drawer of her vintage, shabby chic dresser resulted in a truly romantic Valentine scene.
