A Home Made Vintage Linky Party!

Hello lovely, welcome to my linky party!

Come in and sit down-can I offer you anything...
Tea? Coffee? Cupcakes?

I'm so glad you've joined in and I can't wait to see and hear about what all of you have to 'show and tell' for this handmade and vintage themed day!

So to get the ball rolling, I'd like to show off these lovely drawstring bags that I made. I've been moaning about a lack of storage space lately, so I decided it was really time I did something about it.

I made these three beauties this morning (and yes, I promise to share how I did it very soon!) I love how simple they are and yet they are just so effective for getting all sorts of odds and ends out of the way.

So now it's your turn to show and tell - have you made something new and exciting or found something lovely and vintage - then grab your own linky button from on the right and put it on your side bar, post on your blog and add your link here so that we can all see too!

And as a special treat - one of you lovelies will also get a copy of 'Homemade Vintage' by Christina Strutt (of Cabbages and Roses).

Have a gorgeous day!

Wow, these drawstring bags are amazing! Maybe I will have to wipe the dust of my sewing machine :)

Happy Sunday!

Oh I love these little bags, such a cute idea! I ended up linking to an older post of mine (hope that's okay) - we breathed new life into a very VERY old bench we found at the back of our garden! :)

Looking forward to see everyone else's contribution and what a fab giveway! xxx
