November's Vintage Alphabet

This month's letters are W and X...........hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...had to think about these a while, but if you need some suggestions how about showing off your Wysocki collection, vintage winter Wool blankets, and Westmoreland or Waterford is always beautiful. Vintage Waterpumps are great garden additions and don't forget your pics and statues of old Watermills. If you have a vintage Xylaphone....proudly show it off, but if not......vintage Xmas items are perfect for this week!
You all probably have some terrific ones of your own...you usually do.

Is your post ready? Inlinkz is up and running.

The Linky is easy to use. After you have "published" your Vintage Alphabet post on your blog, stop by Etsy Cottage Style and put your name and the permalink to your post into the Mr. Linky's sign up box.

What is a permalink? A permalink is the direct link to your post, as opposed to your general blog address. When someone visits Etsy Cottage Style during the week and clicks on your link, they will be taken directly to your Vintage Alphabet post instead of having to search through your most recent posts to find it.

There are two ways to get your permalink. One way is to click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet post, then right click on the URL address showing in the address field at the top and select Copy. Then paste this link into Linky which will be available here. Click on "Enter" and you are all done! You will see your permalink posted. :-) Or, another way to add your link for Linky is to right click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet post, select "copy shortcut" and then paste this link into the URL box on the Linky sign-up.

Please remember this is a blog get-together to share vintage finds, collections, or how you utilize vintage items in your designs. Selling sites will be removed. Selling sites are welcome every first Monday of the month at Market Mondays

The many colors of Christmas~AQUA

Wow, we just just got done decorating for Christmas, not only our blog here, but also our ning page!
So we thought we would search our member photos over there and show off some really awesome AQUA stuff for Christmas this week! It is not a color used often, but we have a few members that love this color and do stunning creations with it.


Stay tuned for more "Colors of Christmas" every week.
We will be featuring SILVER, GOLD, BLUE and of course,
PINK which will be our biggest feature with a slide show the first week of December
