Giveaway with Vintage Casters Online Winner!! Plus Link Party #63 and Mes Préférés


Has another week really gone by???  I hope everyone had a fantastique 4th of July.

I was so excited to see the HUGE turnout for the Vintage Casters online giveaway.  So…… is time to announce “le winner”!!!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when this name came out of the drawing…..but it is Kelly, from Eclectically Vintage.

I cannot think of any blogger who is more eclectic and vintage than Kelly.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with!

And….if you didn’t win, you can still shop this amazing website.  Here is the link:

Congratulations!  I am so excited for you.  I could not be more thrilled with my casters.  The pictures I have shared does not show enough of the detail of how “tres chic” they are!

I had so much fun looking through all the fabulous projects you shared with me.  Here are some that really shone!

You may have seen this amazing project, it has been popular, but I just couldn’t resist, it is so cool!  From Generation to Generation.  She blew up a vintage photo and decoupaged it perfectly onto this flat front dresser.  Oh the possibilities are endless for this idea!

This next project is from my friend Mindy at Pretty in Paint.  She does beautiful work, and this piece does not disappoint.  What I love about this, is what she did that is literally outside the box.  She added burlap to the outside!  It looks beautiful, and you must go see the “before” to really appreciate the “after”!

Do you love Zinc and all things Metal looking on furniture?  I love it when it is just so subtle. Amy from The Salvage Collection is beyond talented.  She did this with some Annie Sloane paint and metallic craft paint!!  Amy has pulled some amazing things out of that brain of hers and translated it into stunning furniture.  You must go visit her blog to be totally blown away.

This cabinet from Storywood Designs is definitely playing a new tune.  They took it from a sad little Goodwill find, which was an old radio cabinet, to this beautiful, French Inspired piece that looks as if if were created this way from the start.  Just gorgeous.

Turnstyle Vogue consistently turns out beautiful work, and this latest is no exception.  How many times have we passed by those old hutches because of all the “granny style” scrolly detail.  This clever girl took all the scrolly off and gave the entire piece a brand new look with a cheerful soft yellow, and Walnut Stained accents.  I am inspired to do something with a similar shelf I have that is full of the scrollies.  You have to go visit her site to see the before, it is quite the transformation.

And for “la grandiose fin”, a little French inspired project, that started out as a $3 box from a thrift store!!  Twelve-O-eight shows how to transform an ugly duckling little thrift cast off to this beautiful French inspired towel holder.  I want one myself!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering issues
    with your site. It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web
    browser because I’ve had this happen before. Cheers

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
