“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #72 — Animal Nesting Dolls

by Dagmar Bleasdale on June 22, 2015

Dagmar's Home "Thrifty & Vintage Finds" Link Party

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 71!

If you found an amazing deal lately, a vintage or thrifty find, then I’d love you to link up. You might get featured next week!

I’m sharing a super-thrifty find: these five hand-painted animal nesting dolls were free!

animal nesting dolls, DagmarBleasdale.comThey were free because I already owned them — but they were stuck in this box for 8 years.

I rediscovered them when I opened the box that I knew held my doll collection.

Did you show off your latest find last week?

If you linked up last week, thank you! You all made my choice of who to feature so hard again.

I enjoyed all of your posts and decided to feature Rita, who blogs at Panoply. She bought this lovely brown transferware butter dish during a trip to Naples, FL.

I adore transferware and have many pieces. I would’ve picked up this dish as well and use it as a soap dish.

Thanks for linking up, Rita! And you are right, how could it have taken me this long to unpack my sweet doll collection? Poor babies. BTW, you should work as a foot model :)

I hope you’ll link up again. Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like.

If you weren’t featured this week but would like to be, just link up the same post again, and any new ones.

Your turn! If you’ve picked up a thrifty or vintage find lately, I’d love to see it.

I’m thrilled about any link, but if you want to get featured, please only link up thrifty or vintage finds, and link back to this post. I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

And after you link up, it would be lovely if you would share this party — pin, stumble, tweet away! The bigger the party, the more exposure for us all.

I can’t wait to see your finds! How to link up:

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.
  • Please add the party button to your post {see code below} or a link back to this link party post so others can be inspired to join in the fun. Only posts with a link to this party will be considered to be featured.
  • No links to giveaways, or shop or Etsy sites please.
  • By submitting a link you are authorizing for your project to be featured. Featured links will include a photo and a link back to the originating site.

Hello Dagmar, I am new here! I adore thrifty AND vintage so this seems like the perfect party! Thanks so much for hosting! Blessings, Cecilia

So awesome to meet you this week-end and to hang out for a while. You taught me so much in our quick, in-between conversations–thanks!! Your nesting animals are darling and will look great in your son’s room. I love Rita’s transferware, too :) Thanks so much for hosting–


Dagmar Bleasdale June 24, 2015 at 12:38 AM

Dear Diana, it was so wonderful to meet you in real life! I wish we could have had more time. I hope you enjoyed yourself and learned a bunch! If you have any questions, please let me know.


Rita C at Panoply June 22, 2015 at 6:17 PM

Oh my goodness, Dagmar! Thank you for the feature on my Naples find – I will wear your badge proudly on my blog! And it’s so ironic that you would suggest I be a foot model – I danced on pointe for over 17 years, and you should’ve seen the feet back in the day. I guess time heals all wounds. Thank you for this wonderful party of like-minded, vintage-loving souls. I have never before seen nested animals, and those are absolutely adorable. I had a wonderful haul at a recent estate sale that I’m sharing this week. :) Have a great week, and thanks again.

My pleasure to feature you, Rita, and for linking up again! Can’t wait to check out your finds.


Donna Wilkes June 22, 2015 at 6:13 PM

Well, Dagmar, nothing beats free! It is always a surprise to find something hidden away in your own home. Thank you for hosting. I will return to see the other links.

Thanks for coming by, Donna!
