Home Imagined Link Party #33

Welcome to the Home Imagined Link Party #33 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, 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 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!

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 shares how to add holiday sparkle to your home on a budget. She wrote an entire post on thrifty tips for decorating with vintage finds. You will be amazed at some of the items Rachel has found by thrifting and how she integrates these items into her home.

She is also sharing how to decorate a chandelier for Christmas. The best part, is that you only need 4 items for this project.


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.




So many friends and relatives have asked me questions about collecting vintage mercury glass Christmas ornaments that I decided to write a post about it. You can learn how to identify where an ornament was made, estimate its age, determine its value, and you can learn a few tips for identifying Shiny Brite ornaments.

Speaking of the holiday season, I always like to give some handmade gifts to friends, neighbors and co-workers. With that in mind, I am sharing the post on how to make a lavender salt scrub.


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 to use thrifted silver in your holiday decor. As usual, MaryJo has assembled some amazing vignettes in her home. I love how she has silver bowls piled with ornaments.

Have you heard of a posset? Oh good. I hadn’t either, until I read MaryJo’s post on how to make a cranberry posset for dessert. After reading how easy it is to make this dessert – I am tempted to try it for Christmas.


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 can’t join us this week because she is in Thailand with her family! However, she will be back for our next link party.


Since Melanie is on travel this week, Rachel, MaryJo and I each selected 3 posts to feature from the previous link party. Below are three of my selected features. Head on over to Rachel’s and MaryJo’s blogs to see the other folks who are featured.

Dee Dee from Clover House had me at the words “vintage hoosier”. She shows you how she decorated her vintage hoosier cabinet for the holiday. It is beyond charming! I love the small Christmas tree in the Crisco can.

Lora Bloomquist from Create and Ponder has an inspiring post on 12 ways to decorate with a scarf. I love how she incorporated a scarf into some of her outdoor decor. She always comes up with the most creative ideas for using vintage and thrifted items.

Michelle from Thistle Key Lane is featured again this week for her handmade felt woodland animal ornaments. They are absolutely charming and would also make great handmade gifts.

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.
