Welcome to the Home Imagined Link Party #32 where the purpose of this party is to share ideas and inspiration related to the home.
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 crafting, gardening and a good DIY project.
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!
Let me introduce you to your hostesses.

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 is sharing how she decorated her home using classic red and green colors. If you read carefully, you will see how her husband managed to save an old pencil tree and turned it into a gem.
She is also sharing how she made a garland using sheet music. Rachel offers some great tips for giving the sheet music an antique look.
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.
This week I am showing you how to make clay ornaments using air dry clay. These are fun to make for a personalized Christmas ornament. You can make them in any shape you desire.
Speaking of the holiday season, one of my favorite ways to decorate for Christmas is by using planter heads and filling them with seasonal decor.
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 shares how she decorated a birdbath in her yard for Christmas. I love all the natural elements she used. She also has a great post on using books and book pages to make holiday trees. I am definitely inspired to try to make some of these trees.
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.
With the holiday season upon us, Melanie has a great post on 10 unique gift ideas for vintage and antique lovers. She also walks you through the process for reviving an old dresser in her post on black dresser makeover with fusion mineral paint. You won’t believe what the “before” version of this dresser looked like.
THIS WEEK’S FEATURES
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.
Every year, I look for ways to add true meaning to the holiday season. My goal is to tone down the commercialism and connect with family. Donna from An Organized Season has a fabulous post on 25 traditions you can start now for a meaningful Christmas. There are so many great ideas for slowing down and being in the present.
If you have been spending any time on this website, you know that I love antiques and finding ways to repurpose them. So, when I saw Michelle from Thistle Key Lane’s post on using a soup tureen to create a Christmas centerpiece – it spoke to me.
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.
