100_9055 And how fun is this…Simply Vintageous…by Suzan created her own view of the Eiffel Tower with a vintage window she rescued from the trash!

floral frame 4 And here’s a sentiment that I would agree with…a quote from Audrey Hepburn gracing a vintage frame reworked by The Thrifty Rebel.

  15. Debbie,
    When I saw the number of page views my blog had today, I knew something wonderful had happened out there in blogland. Now I know it is all the wonderful friends of Confessions of a Plate Addict coming by to visit. Thank you and your co-hosts of The Scoop for hosting this wonderful linking party every week. This is the number one way that I find new blogs and new ideas myself, and it is often the way I make a new friend of someone visiting my blog for the first time. Just today, someone new has become a follower on Google, Pinterest, and Facebook. She left a lovely comment and let me know she found my blog through you. Thank you again for helping bloggers connect.

    Thank you for featuring the Vintage Bird Prints on Dictionary Pages.

  17. AW, so nice to see one of my pieces featured! I'm honored. Thanks so much!!!

  18. WOW! amazing vintage inspired items. I love the painted teal fan! I need it for my house. So many good ideas I don't know where to start! I want to click on all of them and will. I do vintage, but mostly fashion and jitterbug WWII fictional novel . Not certain it you'd like it, but this fits into my vintage lifestyle for sure.

  22. Thank you SO MUCH FOR FEATURING ME! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and it is a great honor to be featured. I truly need to figure out how to put those blog side buttons on with your button to say that I was featured since it is such an honor for me. My eldest daughter used to help me with things like that.... but she's off at college now......I'm so humbled every day by my lack of tech knowledge! I'll get it figured out, though! THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH!!!
