Creating Vintage Charm Launch Party and Giveaway

The magazine is almost finished and soon to be published. I have been working non-stop the last few weeks on this baby and I was amazed by the contributions of so many and the help and enthusiasm too. That was an encouragement, for sure!!I thank all those who communicated with me lately about this new publication.

As I have been saying, the first issue will be available to sell on the 25th of September and I am SUPER excited and I wanted to make it more special so what better way to celebrate...With a BLOG PARTY on the 25th of September.

The magazine is about decorating or creating Vintage Charm and I am sure many of you already are inspired to create or decorate in this romantic style.

So for the party, we are going to show off our Vintage Charming creations or decor. I do hope you join me in this celebration. Show your creations in any kind of craft or medium, re purposed antiques or vignettes in your home that are Vintage Charming.

There is more to the celebration....Two Party goers has a chance to win a Free copy of the First Issue of Creating Vintage Charm 

This is how it will work. If you want to participate, add your Blog name and URL to my Link list on this post. On the night before the party on the 24th, (This assures that the early risers or those bloggers in other parts of the world can see your post on time.)post your favorite Vintage Charming photos and maybe tell us about what inspires you most to create or decorate in Vintage style. Is it a specific childhood memory, a relative, their home or clothing, jewelry!!  I do hope to see a lot of beautiful images!!!! Who knows... I may want to feature you in a future issue of Creating Vintage Charm!!!! On the day of the party we will all meet here and spend the weekend blog hopping and get a peak inside everyone's Vintage Charm inspirations!!

On the launch/party day I will also post all the information on where to get your own copy of the beautiful magazine. The issue has several tutorials from artists and crafters you know and love, beautiful colored images and more. I cannot wait for you to see it. I KNOW you'll love it.

One more and last thing, I would appreciate it if you help me spread the word by taking my button above and post about the party or link back to this post on your side bar. The more the Merryer.

Bring on your Vintage inspired party hats and join the fun... See you there!!!

Hugs to all!!

PS. And for those who are not sure yet!! Yes, this is a printed publication!!

I am so sorry my post was not up by the due date...I had a variety of issues over the past best friend's father passed away very suddenly, and then my uncle passed away 3 days later. I did not have the heart to post about vintage collectibles at that point. My post is live, now, late as it is. with thoughts on the history of my things

I'm looking forward to visiting the other posts for this event. Happy Friday, everyone.
