Welcome to the Home Imagined link party #18!

Hello! I’m Rachel, the blogger and content creator behind The Antiqued Journey. Here on the blog, you will find encouraging ideas about vintage and antique decor, simple home decor DIY crafts, as well as some fun thrifting adventures. If that interests you, sign up for my e-mail! This party was created to be a supportive and uplifting space for bloggers to showcase their content and for non-bloggers to glean inspiration for their homes. Anna and I are so grateful to have you here. We do hope you come back again and again. With that, let’s get onto the Home Imagined link party #18!

Life Lately

Hi, guys! I’m so happy you are here!

The weather is finally acting nice here in the Northland and I was able to pot flowers last weekend! Our patio may be small but comes to life with all of the ferns and vines. We only get a few hours of direct sunlight in the morning so I’m limited to what I can plant but that’s okay! I will have a full post about this next week, so come back on Thursday!

Also last weekend, we celebrated my sister and soon-to-be-niece with a final baby shower. In just 3 and half short weeks, I will be an Auntie to the baby girl that we have waited so long to meet! I’m beyond excited and so happy for my sister.

Our link party is hosted every other week, so twice per month. It opens on Tuesday’s at 8 AM Central time and closes on Friday’s at 5 PM Central time. I would love to see you…invite your friends and other bloggers to join us.

LINK PARTY UPDATE: We are in a transition phase for the Home Imagined link party. Thank you for bearing with us as we onboard some brand new faces to our party. We have some very exciting things coming up, so stay tuned! In the meantime, this week, Anna and I have each chosen three bloggers to feature.

Home Imagined Link Party #18

I have chosen 3 posts from the last link party to feature this week.

The first featured post this week comes from my friend CoCo at The Crowned Goat. She shared a super neat post on how to Easily Revive Tarnished Flatware and Trophies. Tarnished silver has always scared me a little bit but now I know, next time I’m out treasure hunting, to pick them up even if they are dirty! Thanks CoCo for sharing your knowledge!

The second feature this week is from Debra at Common Ground. I adore her decorating style. She shared a post on How To Create a Floral May Basket and it’s just stunning. Go see how you can make something similar for your home!

The third feature this week comes from Marie at This Dear Casa. Marie shared her Late Spring Mantle Decor with Thrifted Finds. I’m ALL about decorating with thrifted decor and Marie’s mantel is just lovely. You don’t need to spend a ton of money to create a beautiful home!
