Home Imagined Link Party #25

Welcome to the Home Imagined Link Party #25 where the purpose of this party is to share ideas and inspiration related to the home.

This link party is hosted by Rachel from The Antiqued Journey, Melanie from Lost & Found Decor and MaryJo from Master “Pieces” of my Life and myself.

We are four ladies who are passionate about all things related to the home. This includes refurbishing furniture, collecting vintage items, and decorating for the seasons. We also love a good DIY project, crafting and gardening.

We hope that you can share similar posts with others in this link party since the goal is that we all share ideas, read one another’s posts, leave comments and get inspired.

Our party starts at Tuesday, 9 am Eastern time and ends the following Friday at 5 pm Eastern time. We host the party every other Tuesday. Each hostess will select two posts to feature at the next link party. That means we will have a total of 8 features!

Rachel from The Antiqued Journey is passionate about antiques and thrift stores. Her blog is full of inspiration showing her latest finds and how she incorporates them into her decor.

You can follow Rachel on the following social media platforms:




Rachel shared a post on kitchen decor ideas for cabinets and shelves. I love how she incorporates vintage copper into her kitchen decor. She also has a post she wrote from her heart on why buying second hand items is important. Here is a hint – buying second hand items helps the planet. She also shares some photos of her honeymoon in Hawaii.


If you are reading this on the Sky Lark House blog, then you already know who I am. I refurbish furniture, share information about vintage/ antique items and share small crafts. You can follow me on any of these social media platforms.




Today, I am sharing how you can make your own lavender salt scrub. It’s perfect for moisturizing and exfoliating your skin. It’s great for removing paint, primer and even dirt from your hands. If you have lavender growing in your garden – this is a fabulous way to use the blooms. I can’t believe it’s the end of August and September is just around the corner. With that in mind, I show you how to make an easy DIY autumn wreath. Seriously, this wreath took less than 30 minutes to put together.


MaryJo from MasterPieces of My Life loves all things that are weathered, tattered, tarnished, rusted, faded, shabby, & distressed because they have a story to tell. You can follow her on any of these social media platforms.




MaryJo gave this sideboard a new life! You won’t believe how she transformed it with chalk paint. She is also walking you through the details on the landscape design elements of her front yard. I love the open feel to her front yard and the landscaping elements.


Melanie from Lost & Found Decor has a lot of experience with refurbishing cast-off furniture and hunting through thrift and vintage stores to find affordable and unique things. She was so successful in her endeavors that she turned her passion into a business.

Melanie has a thriving YouTube channel that I encourage you to check out. She offers a lot of free advice on how to have a profitable vintage/antique booth. She also takes you along as she hunts for treasures.

In addition to her YouTube channel, you can follow Melanie on any of these social media platforms.




Melanie has the best post for tips on painting furniture white. If you have tried painting something white – you know that you can experience a variety of challenges. Melanie gives you her inside tips on how to get a smooth finish and even shares her favorite brands of paint.

If you haven’t noticed, the economy has slowed down in recent months. Oh yeah. Waaay down. If you are a vintage/antiques dealer, you may have noticed a dip in your sales. Melanie shares 4 ways to jump start your antique booth sales. This post could not be more timely.


Each of us selected 2 posts to feature from the previous link party. Below are two of my selected features. Head on over to Rachel’s, MaryJo’s and Melanie’s blogs to see the other folks who are featured.

It seems that Italian fruit topiaries are having a moment. I keep seeing them pop up in different social media venues. (Pinterest, I am looking at you). Tanya from TwelveOEight has the best blog post on how to make a DIY Italian Fruit Topiary.

Sometimes, with the craziness of life, I just want to come home to peaceful environment. An escape from the realities of the world. When I read Kathryn from the Dedicated House’s post on how to turn your home into a tranquil and peaceful space, I immediately implemented some of her ideas.

Please take a few minutes to stop by each of these blogs and leave a comment. A good deal of thought, effort and time went into creating each of these posts.
