Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party No. 125!

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

I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July!

We had a big Fourth of July party last night, with family from Australia and Pennsylvania, and then we had a lovely brunch today.

Don took Landon for a swim in his sister’s pool after the brunch, and I had time to organize our porch a bit.

This week, I’m showing you the vintage cooler I bought months ago. After it was sitting in the attic, I’m now using it as a side table on our porch. It’s big enough to store a lot of ice or drinks in it for hot summer days.

I think I’m going to paint it white, just like I painted the big rattan box we have on the other side of the porch.

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

I decided to feature Mimi, who blogs at A Tray of Bliss. She made a dreamcatcher out of a vintage doily. Such a cute idea! I have many doilies I could make this with.

Thank you Dagmar for hosting. It is always fun to use our vintage finds for decorating. I love decorating with vintage finds and enjoy their patina.

Good morning Dagmar. Thank you for hosting us, and I’ve already been visiting other guests this morning – fun! I love seeing you use your finds – that’s one of the best things when we thrift – injecting our own personality into our homes with things less expensive, and having fun searching them out. Mimi’s dream catcher is beautiful. I hope you have a great week.

Thanks for hosting and sounds like you had a great fourth! Here in Pittsburgh, we were a total washout.
