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

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 would all love to find! Be sure to stop by Antique Bottles to find out the unique history behind each of them. 

Sharon's Pick

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

Cecilia's Pick

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 you see 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 the details, including the first color fail and what she used to paper her cabinets!    

Diana's Pick

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 of 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!
