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

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 75!

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 was at the Haven conference for three days and obviously didn’t have time to go thrifting, but I still have a thrifty and vintage find to show you — thanks to my sister-in-law Lisa!

We checked out her new house yesterday for the first time, and she asked me if I’d like to have this vintage Blue Willow pitcher made in England:

I tried to convince her that it would look so cute with flowers on her round table in the breakfast nook, but she insisted that I take it. Okay, twist my arm :)

Now it looks cute on our table, with hydrangeas I planted recently in our front yard.

149bIs it just me, or do hydrangeas need a lot of water? I’m still new at this gardening thing.

Did you show off your latest find at my last party?

If you linked up, thank you! You all made my choice of who to feature so hard again. I’d love to feature all of you — you are all so talented.

I decided to feature Dianne, who blogs at Deanie’s Stash. I love her tagline:

“My Screwball Adventures Saving Items From Being Landfill Residents, The Keeper of Stuff, Crafting and Getting Junk & More Junk.”

This is her latest stash, and I would have grabbed half of these things myself.

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.

How to link up:

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.

  • 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.

Wow! Dagmar I was so surprised that you featured me today. Thank you!! I am very honored. My tagline is so me which should include “I am like Lucy from I Love Lucy” stumbling through life. LOL! Thank you for hosting and I am so glad I found your blog.

Hugs,
Dianne

Hi Dagmar–thanks for hosting! Yes, hydrangea need a lot of water :) I used a new [to me] trick for preserving them in a vase–dip newly cut ends in alum (in spice section of grocery store) and place in your vase filled with water. I’ve not had to re-cut the ends or replace the water for a week, and they look fantastic. Usually they wilt in a day or two. I love it when a Pinterest tip works! BTW, looking forward to hearing about Haven–

Good morning, Dagmar! What a great gift your sil gave you! My link photo apparently has been reincarnated into one of PBarn’s upcoming lines – old is new, proof’s in the pudding. ;)Have a great week.
