Thrifty & Vintage Finds Link Party, Dagmar's Home

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 97!

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!

It’s a bottle brush tree love fest over here. You’ll see.

My latest vintage find: I added to my vintage Jello mold collection.

And then I made something with them.

After making these bottle brush trees on spools…

…I kept right on going with the bottle brush tree love fest and made these two bottle brush tree stands with Jello molds, lace, wooden spools, and vintage bingo numbers.

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

As always, it was a lot of fun to look at all of your finds.

Guess what? One of my readers loves the ugly lamp shade I featured last week, and I’m going to send it to her :) I’m glad she is going to enjoy it.

It was so hard again to decide who to feature! I decided to feature my friend Diana, who writes Adirondack Girl at Heart. She found these amazing folding chairs for $8 each! I bought similar ones a month ago.

Thanks for linking up again, Diana! Your husband was so right to talk you into buying these chairs! 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 all of us.

Thank you, Cecilia!

All of your Christmas decorations are beautiful, Dagmar, but I think I like your jello mold pieces the best. Thanks so much for the feature, and for hosting. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year to you, Diana!

Good morning, Dagmar, and the countdown to Christmas! Your home looks like a bottle brush wonderland, and I love all the ideas you’ve worked. Hmmm…to name the project for your Etsy shop…first thought on the #29 is skirted bottle brush tree. As for #18, first thought is jello mold tree stand. To be uniform, maybe a blend of the words – bottle brush tree with repurposed stand, skirt. ?? I’m sure you’ll think of something catchy and descriptive. Merry Christmas, and thank you for taking time to host in this very busy last week before Santa goes into overtime!

Thank you for your comment, Rita! It’s almost like they are Jello mold man and woman, right :) Happy holidays and a blessed New Year to you!
