Vintage Charm Party #162

December 12, 2018

Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #162! 

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.

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

My absolute favorite Christmas story of all time is "Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore, hands down. We used to read it to the kids every year on Christmas Eve. While the kids have grown, I am still quite partial to that story. So no wonder I fell in love with Carol from The Red Painted Cottage's Christmas mantel. She uses a printed and framed sign with a quote from the book as the main element, surrounded by neutral small wooden houses, white bottle brush trees and a rustic deer figure. Lush and festive greens are draped throughout to add that special finishing touch. Drop by Twas the Night Before Christmas Mantel to get a glimpse of this rustic, serene winter wonderland.      

Cecilia's Pick

Paula, from Virginia Sweet Pea, shared her lovely traditional Christmas Front Door and Porch Decor. From her festive urns and garland to her fresh boxwood wreath, the entire look is classic and charming. Pay Paula a visit for more holiday inspiration!

Hello Kathleen! Thank you for hosting Vintage Charm; it is good to be back with you again. I was just leaving a similar message for Cecilia that I lost my master list of link parties I try and join was time allows/have appropriate post, so I appreciate receiving your emails. :)

This week I have a post on a tea I attended as part of the DFW Costume Guild here in Dallas, Texas. Oh, my! These ladies make THE MOST INCREDIBLY detailed costumes, often using vintage and reproduction patterns to fashion their clothes. I hope you like it! {Thought it was a good fit for Vintage Charm and it's NOT a recipe. }

Happy Christmas wishes to you!!!
Barb :)

I am sharing the birth of our new and only grandboy. I also posted our Xmas mantel.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
