Vintage Charm #149 and August Feature of the Month

September 5, 2018

Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #149! Thanks to all who linked up last week. And if you're new here, welcome! We appreciate each and every one of you who continue 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, we'd like to announce our


Drum roll please..... Congratulations goes to 

Julie from Sum of Their Stories

Julie from Sum of Their Stories crafted a lovely Vintage Handkerchief Jewelry Pouch that is perfectly charming! After she was given a pile of vintage hankies from her friend's mother's estate, she used them to create fragrant sachets and this beautiful jewelry pouch. Pay Julie a visit for her detailed tutorial, so you can make one too. Congratulations, Julie!

Now let's find out what our 

hostesses have been up to!



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

I’m a huge fan of fabric pumpkins. And Penny, of Penny’s Vintage Home, is a woman after my own heart. She recently used her decorating prowess to prepare her formal dining room table for fall – with a gorgeous fabric pumpkin centerpiece. And she’s the talent behind those pumpkins – she made them herself! So be sure to stop by for some fall decorating inspiration. Love it, Penny! 

Cecilia's Pick

Tiffany from Tee Diddly Dee shared a repurposed DIY Water Trough Storage Table that I absolutely adore--what a clever way to add extra storage and instant farmhouse style! Best of all, she included a step-by-step tutorial so you can make one too. Love it, Tiffany!
