Vintage Inspiration Party

Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Party!
This is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered, but you can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.
vin-tage (adj.) 1.) used to describe something that is not new but that is valued because of its good condition, attractive design, etc. 2.) used to describe something that has the best qualities or characteristics of the things made or done by a particular person, organization, etc.
At the Vintage Inspiration Party, your links will show up on 4 different blogs, giving you four times the exposure!

We have added some new features to the VIP. If you are not so lucky to be able to DIY yourself a vintage treasure or the shopping is just not that good in your neck of the woods, there is always the internet. So we are going to show off some of our favorite vintage treasures we would like to buy right now.
This week's featured shop is Snug Harbor Bay.
Isn't that trunk so beautiful. You won't believe how sad this vintage trunk looked before it got a makeover. Go check out the Etsy shop for more ' must have' feelings.
We would also like to introduce you to some wonderful blogs that we have discovered and fell in love with. Hop on over and tell them this is where you found them.
This week's featured blog is Coastal Charm.

If you were featured here today, feel free to show off this remarkable achievement :-)

Now let's get this party going.
If you want to join and link up your finds and vintage/ upcycled projects go right ahead. But take a moment to browse the rules first.

Link Party Guidelines
- You are welcome to share anything vintage or vintage inspired. This includes yard sale finds, repurposed and upcycled creations, family heirlooms, and even vintage or vintage inspired items you have for sale. If it’s been around awhile or just looks that way…share away!! No food links please.
- Pin away, but please be sure to pin directly from the original source, not from my blog.
- Be sure to have a visible link to Beyond The Picket Fence (or the other party throwers) within your post (text link is fine) within your post.
- By linking up with the Vintage Inspiration Party you agree that your photos and links may be shared on Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media sites. You may be included in a round up to promote the party or individually with a link back to you. We love what you share and the extra exposure is a benefit to everyone.
