Knick of Time Tuesday #25 {Vintage Style Link Party}

Hey Everybody!  
Welcome back to this week's party.

As you can see, the look of my blog is slowly undergoing some changes, 
but not without a fair amount of agony on my part.  

I spent a ridiculous amount of time working on it,
Googled myself silly trying to figure out 
how in the world to make it fit correctly,
photographed, re-photographed and re-re-photographed,
and then Googled some more.  
I want to thank Vicki @ Ranger 911 
for pointing me toward a blog that was very helpful. 

It isn't perfect, but it's getting closer to the look I wanted.
I'll continue tweaking it here and there, until I'm happy with it.
I normally love redecorating, 
but blog redecorating is a whole 'nuther thing and not nearly as much fun as home redecorating.

I did complete a project that was more fun yesterday.
After showing you some old drawers that were turned into shelves last week, I got out my chalkboard paint and did several of my own.  Here's the first one I finished.
I love the versatility of drawers because you can hang them either horizontally or vertically and besides using the inside of the drawer as a shelf, you can use the top of them also.
 This drawer came from an old oak desk that came from the 
same demolished courthouse as my living room window.

I'm counting down the days before the 
That's the Ticket 
Blog Hop Link Party starts!
I can't wait to see what you all bring to the party
and I can't wait to see who the winners of the 4 giveaways will be.
I hope you all plan to come link up this Friday!!

I'd love, love, love it if you would help spread the word
and put the party button on your blog.
Thank you bunches!

Last week there were so many wonderful
vintage & vintage-style goodies, that I'm featuring
extras today - I couldn't help it!

Artsy Va Va 
made this fabulous necklace from old dresser hardware.

Full Circle Creations
painted - yes, without a stencil painted, this 
vintage-style canvas print  - love it!

Gail's Decorative Touch
turned 2 run-of-the-mill, old cutting boards into
absolute beauties!  I won't be passing up dreary, old cutting boards
in the thrift stores now.

Outjunking brought home this absolutely adorable
receipt book from the 40's.  When she brings home
"junk", she brings home good junk!

will have you tearing up every old book you can get
your hands on with all her great book page projects.
