Welcome to another Dagmar’s Home link party. If you are here for the first time — hello, hello!
As you might know, this weekly link party used to be for sharing thrifty or vintage finds — because I love everything thrifty or vintage — but I opened it up for all kinds of posts.
I like seeing them all!
If you have been visiting my blog for a long time, you know that I usually like to show you my latest thrifty or vintage finds.
This week, I’ve got nothing, ha!
Landon and I boarded a flight on Friday in cold Westchester, NY, to spend five days in sunny Orlando, FL.
We spent our days doing one fun thing after another, so all I have are vacation photos of the lazy river, mini golf, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, ice cream, palm trees, jet skies and kayak rides, water slides…
I had no chance to check out a local thrift store to find new treasures.
I guess the trip was my thrifty find: I paid $1,200 for two plane tickets, a limo to pick us up from the airport and drive us back, and four nights in a 4-star resort with seven pools and a kitchenette in our room.
Landon walked into the resort club house, took one look around, and said: “So this is what hard work buys you.”
Gosh, I love my boy. So sweet. At 11-years-old he’s still at that age where traveling is a total adventure for him, and there’s nothing better than being able to travel with him and seeing him have fun and enjoy new things.
He has been my travel buddy since he was little, and he’s up for about anything. Remember our 8-hour drive to Colonial Williamsburg?
Yes, hard work makes our trips possible, but also knowing how to travel for less, on a budget. I used Ebates again to find this deal, like I usually do for any online shopping.
If you want to learn how I regularly save hundreds of dollars on trips, read THIS post.
Let’s get straight to the feature of this week!
I always feature my favorite post the following week, so if you are interested in being featured, please link back to this post.
I decided to highlight Tania’s post, who blogs at Little Vintage Cottage.
She did something I have wanted to do in our kitchen since we bought our home: add a DIY faux brick wall.
She added it to her living room and used the German smear method to achieve that brick look.
Faux Brick Wall With German Smear (Schmear)
I have looked into so many DIY faux brick wall ideas, but this one is my favorite way to achieve that look.
The faux brick panels are thin, just like I want them; they are big, so paneling our kitchen wouldn’t take long; and as a German girl, I definitely want to try the German smear method :)
