Creating Vintage Charm

 Do you have your copy yet?

 I've spent the last two days taking in every tasty morsel
of this beautiful new magazine published by Sonia Crouse.

We're celebrating the release of her work of heart
by sharing how we create vintage charm.

 
 There are those who like to shop in high-end stores, but not me.
My favorite place is thrift stores and antique shops.

 
 I love the charm that gently used items add to my home.

 
 I love old doors and windows....

 
 cabinets filled with sweet treasures....

 
 
 
 
 
 painted pieces....

 
 
 
 and big, over-stuffed, quilt covered cozy furniture.

 
 
 
 I love special pieces from family members, now gone....

 
 
 

 
 
 
 as well as new found treasures.

 
Blended with new items, these treasures work together
to give my home the vintage charm I love.


Thank you Sonia for sharing your talents with us!
Visit Sonia's blog to see more vintage charm.

thanks for taking the time to show off your lovely treasures....high end shops are not for me either....second hand, one of a kind created by artists...handmade by my own hands....that's the good stuff to me!

I have actually ordered this premier issue and I cannot wait until it is delivered to my door!

if you think it's terrific....then I know I'm going to sink my teeth right into it over a good cup of coffee!

ciao bella

That magazine looks wonderful!!!! Thanks for letting us know about it! Will it be for sale in the stores or by order only? I have the same platter & one the next size larger (as the one you showed in the next to last photo in this post). It was my Grandmothers "Sunday Dish" pattern. Charlene
