Vintage Charm Party #161 and November Feature of the Month

December 5, 2018


Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #161! 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

NOVEMBER FEATURE OF THE MONTH:

Drum roll please..... Congratulations goes to 

Diana from Adirondack Girl at Heart!



Our friend Diana, using her many talents, whipped up some DIY chalk paint and transformed a table and mirror that now fit perfectly in her foyer. She even includes a helpful video on how to make your own chalk paint. So be sure to drop by Foyer Reveal With Chalk Painted Furniture to get the details on the paint and see the final result.    

Follow Diana: 


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


sleigh bells belt
Tiffany from Tee Diddly Dee is a master DIY-er. From working with pallet wood to restoring outdoor furniture, she certainly knows her way around power tools. But she also shares other thrifty projects that require very few materials and very little time -- like her DIY sleigh bells. One of our family traditions is to keep sleigh bells hanging on our back door during the Christmas season. I can say from experience that they really add to the Christmas spirit every time they jingle. So drop by her DIY Sleigh Bells From An Old Belt and read her very straightforward tutorial for making your very own sleigh bells. Tiffany makes it easy for you to start a new family tradition of your own. Thanks, Tiffany!

Shiny Brite Christmas ornament tree screen door


If you've seen any of my previous Christmas posts, you probably know that I am just a wee bit obsessed with vintage ornaments. So...it's only natural that I adore the idea that Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S. shared for how to Use a Screen Door to Display Ornaments--isn't it fabulous?! Now I'm on the hunt for a screen door! Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa!
