“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #82 — Miniature Books

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

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 81!

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 hope you had a lovely Labor Day weekend! I organized several spots in our house and finally painted our living room chairs, which I’m super thrilled about.

Wait until you see them in their shabby chic glory in an upcoming blog post!

I have a pretty odd thrifty find to show off this week:

I bought two bags of craft supplies a while ago and just this weekend got a better look at what’s actually in the bags when I was organizing things.

thrifty supplies, miniature craft items

One bag, the one for $3, is filled with batting and fabric scraps and vintage ribbon, but the bag for 25¢ was filled with all kinds of tiny surprises.

Miniature, to be exact.

Miniature Books

There are tiny bags of miniature books, a toy train, a set of canisters, garden tools, and wouldn’t you know — a carpenter tool box with the tiniest tools.

And the word “cigar” in tiny wood letters. That’s the only thing I can figure out those letters can spell. “Car”? Scrabble, anyone?

The miniature children’s books are as small as a penny. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them, but for 25¢ I couldn’t pass up this bag full of goodies. Maybe I’ll just give them to Landon to play with.

Did you show off your latest find last week? If you linked up, thank you!

There were so many great entries again, and more entries every week, which makes me so happy. It’s so much fun and inspiring to see all your posts.

I decided to feature Darrielle, who blogs at D.D.’s Cottage and Design.

I can’t find an About page, so I don’t know a lot about her, but she loves thrifting just as much as I do, that’s for sure!

Her latest haul is full of amazing items I would have bought as well. I especially love that wood piece!

Thanks for linking up, Darrielle! I’m glad I found your blog. Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like. And I really hope you’ll link up every week from now on!

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 all of us.

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.

I love the miniatures you found – I would be in fairy garden heaven! I look for these kinds of things to use in my fairy gardens.

the letters also spell Craig. I couldn’t come up with anything else. :)

Dagmar, those miniature books are sweet. I have a collection of antique ones which I did a post on a while back. Have a great week, and thank you for hosting.
