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

Mickie from The Speckled Hen Cottage brought back warm memories from my childhood with her 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!

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 find 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 that 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.

Cecilia's Pick

I've really been enjoying Paula's weekly series Vintage Monday on her blog Sweet Pea. Last week she shared some charming Easter Decor, including this precious Blue Ridge Pottery lamb plate from the '40's that belonged to her dad. Isn't it the sweetest? Pop over to see the rest of Paula's vintage treasures!

I met Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home on Instagram not too long ago and recently featured her as one of ten vintage Instagrammers to follow. She has terrific vintage style and wonderful pieces that she uses to decorate her beautiful home. Her displays burst with vintage goodness, like the framed egg, chippy candlestick and antique post card in this one. You are going to love every single one of her charming vignettes in Easter Decorating with Bunnies and Blooms.
