Vintage Charm Party #99 and August Feature of the Month

September 7, 2017

Vintage Charm is a vintage-themed link party where awesome thrifters and collectors link up each week with something new!

Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #99
and August Feature of the Month! 


Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #99! Thanks to all who linked up last week. And if you're new here, welcome! We appreciate each and every one of you who continues to come back and party with us. We're in constant awe of your creativity and talent. And once again we can't wait to see what vintage goodies, finds and projects you all have to share with us today.

But first, let's find out what blog post was chosen as 
August's Feature of the Month.

AUGUST'S  FEATURE OF THE MONTH:

Congratulations Goes To.....

Kathleen of Everything Karupped! 




I was so impressed with the lovely Reupholstered Bench Before and After by Kathleen from Everything Karupped. Not only did she see potential beyond some pretty dreadful stripes and breathe new life into a bench that had seen better days, Kathleen was oh-so-thrifty and just plain smart in the process!  Pay her a visit to see just how she did it and how little she actually spent!

AND NOW, A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT NEXT WEEK'S VINTAGE CHARM PARTY #100!

Weekly Features

It's been difficult for us to choose just one feature each. Your vintage finds, vignettes and just plain creativity have been awesome!

Kathleen's Pick


Roxanne over at The Honeycomb Home has completed an awesome DIY project that I SO wish I had done myself! She and her husband took a vintage, chippy, shabby fireplace mantel and created the perfect custom DIY fireplace surround for it. They then put it all together and installed it as a gorgeous, decorative focal point in their living room -- and it looks so real! And I'm not kidding when I say I wish I had done this -- I already had my husband scouring Craigslist for a vintage mantel (to surprise me with at Christmas, of course!) before  I even read about this one. You've got to stop over and see this beauty, as well as Roxanne's detailed instructions and tips on how to DIY it for yourself. Thank you, Roxanne!  

Cecilia's Pick




Lauren at Wonderfully Made shared her latest project, a charming Vintage Shabby Chic Bedside Table that she upcycled from a thrift store find. I just love how it turned out! Pop over to see the tutorial for her timeworn technique and the before photo of her transformation.

1. Content: Submit up to three posts that involve vintage finds, crafts, DIYs and other vintage subject matter. No shops or direct advertising, please.   

2. Reminder: No recipe links, please.   

3. Link-back: We'd love it if you'd include the Vintage Charm button or a text link back to the party in your linked post. 

4. Visitation: Please visit other blog posts -- after all that's what a link-up is all about. When pinning please go to the source of the photo to pin it so the originator of the post gets the credit.

6. Spread the Word: Consider mentioning Vintage Charm on your social media to help spread the word and make this party a great experience for everyone. 

7. Prizes: Keep in mind that each month we will select one of the month's featured posts to be featured on both hostesses' blogs. At the end of the year one of the twelve monthly features will be selected as the Grand Prize Feature of the Year. Prize TBA.

8. Permission: By linking up to Vintage Charm you assert that the photographs are yours (or you have permission to use them) and you give your hostesses permission to feature them on social media or a blog party with a link back to your blog. You will likewise assert that the content of the post is your own.  




Also, we hope you'll follow our Vintage Charm Features and Favorites Pinterest Board. We don't just pin features, but many other posts we love as well. We want to build your traffic and popularity any way we can!
