Home Imagined Link Party #31

Sharing is caring!

Welcome back to the Home Imagined Link Party!

It’s time for another party full of inspiration 🙂

If you’re new here . . . 

My name is Melanie, and I am the owner of Lost & Found. Here on my blog, you’ll find furniture makeovers, DIY projects for your home, ideas for using vintage items as budget-friendly decor, and help for creative small business owners.

I’ll introduce the other 3 amazing ladies involved in our party here in just a minute 🙂

But for now, I invite you to link up your home-related posts and join our party, which runs every other Tuesday from 9 am Eastern time to Friday 5 pm Eastern time. 

This week with Lost & Found

This was a tough week for our family 🙁 We had to say goodbye to one of our cats, he got very ill pretty suddenly and our vet let us know it was time to say goodbye. 

He was such a sweet boy! He “adopted us” 8 years ago when he showed up as a hungry stray in our garage.  If you’ve ever had to put a pet to sleep, you know what a tough decision that is.  I’m thankful he isn’t hurting anymore though and I am snuggling our other pets a little more this week!

In the Online Shop

Vintage ornaments have landed in the online shop! 

These are getting harder and harder to find out in the wild! You can see what sets I have available here. 

I’m also in love with this brass sugar tongs and demitasse spoon set! 

It has the sweetest matching carved rose pattern on the handle of each piece. They would make a great addition to your holiday tablescape!


 Let’s Meet Our Home Imagined Party Hosts!

Unfortunately, Anna from Skylark House is unable to join us this week due to a medical emergency in her family.  She and her family are in our thoughts and prayers.


Please take a moment and follow our hostesses on at least one of their social platforms and take a look at their featured content from the week.

Home Imagined Link Party Features

We have each chosen 2 posts to feature from the last link party. And since Anna isn’t able to share her picks this week, I am going to highlight hers also 🙂

First up is this super cute home decor DIY from Steph Creates Things. This may look like a book stack, but it’s actually a painted crate from the dollar store! Visit her blog to check out the full tutorial for this project. 

Next up is a fantastic Yeast Roll recipe from Estelle at Homemade on a Weeknight. If you’re looking for your Thanksgiving roll recipe, this is a great candidate!

We also have Ann from Apple Street Cottage.  She shared her tried and true method for how to decoupage without getting any wrinkles. Her final project is adorable and her tutorial is full of great tips.

And last but certainly not least is Laura from Decor to Adore. You will be amazed at this Little House on the Prairie-inspired costume dress she made! As someone who can’t sew to save my life, I am really impressed with her skills.


Please stop by and visit Rachel, and Mary Jo to see what blogger projects they featured for the week!

It's so tough when it's time to say goodbye, whether it happened suddenly or was a long time coming. I'm sure your other pets are missing him as much as you. Take care
