Welcome to Vintage Charm Party #442 
and May Feature of the Month!

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 May Feature of the Month:

Lora from Lora B. Create & Ponder

vintage brooch and handkerchief wreath

I've always loved crafts that incorporate vintage and/or unique items that hold a special place in our hearts. Our friend Lora from Create & Ponder has found a way to do just that. She incorporates vintage hankies she's received from family members into a fabulous "wreath" embellished with -- wait for it -- vintage brooches! Be still, my heart! You can't get more unique than that. Drop by Nostalgic DIY Handkerchief Wreath With Vintage Pins to see her stunning creation and get the tutorial. 

Follow Lora

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  

romantic chandelier with hanging crystals

I'm a true chandelier junkie, especially when they're the result of a great DIY. Our good friend Kim from Exquisitely Unremarkable has done just that -- she's taken a plain Jane generic chandelier and turned it into a one of a kind light fixture. Drop by Romantic DIY Cottage Style Bedroom Chandelier to learn how she did it!

Cecilia's Pick

embossed metal flower bottle tops

Carol from The Answer is Chocolate shared lovely DIY Embossed Metal Flower Bottle Tops--talk about elevating a dollar store find--WOW! The bee-adorned bottles were pretty to begin with but our friend's embellishments are next level. Visit Carol for all the details!

I love the handkerchief wreath, it reminds me of my Grandmother, she always carried a pretty floral hanky in her pocket or purse. Thanks so much for hosting, I appreciate coming to visit and share with your readers, have a great week ahead! Melynda @scratchmadefood!
