this weekend’s theme

~ collections ~

 You might say I collect a few things. 🙂

I like grouping like minded objects together so they have a larger visual impact.

 I’ve recently received a few NEW collections in my mailbox over the last week from Anything Goes Here’s Etsy shop,  with more on their way. Aren’t these faucet handles the coolest?!?

My intent had been to do some really super creative things with the new collections arriving, however remember that power outage I talked about? I just discovered it knocked one of my work computers out so I was a little busy making a ton of phone calls instead. Guess I’ll have to share what I do with it all in my Christmas reveal post. 🙂

Speaking of Christmas and cool junk…

I’ve officially decided that this year, my Christmas decor will be all about ‘whatcha already got vintage’.  Meaning, a whole lotta junk will be prettied up some for the festive season. 🙂 No cost kind of decor, of course. 🙂

 This cute little coke box and bottle display sits underneath my twig chandelier, on my kitchen island. The crate is pretty handy for rolled napkins and cutlery too! A touch of real greens totally speaks Christmas without being blatant about it all.

Even the cogs on my desk got a little colour thrown in. I love the odd green one and the greenery again just adds a tiny hint of what’s around the corner. (and hey… that’s fresh snow you see in the pics!)

There’s a reason I Christmas-fied up my collections. It’s time to get in the spirit of things because…

~ December’s themes ~

All about Christmas!

The themed linkups will change for the month of December! We’ll all be busy with the preparations, so why not focus on what we need to do anyway and make it fun!

Dec 3 – your favorite things you and your family can’t live without (for shopping inspiration!)

Dec 10 – your fav Christmas recipe

Dec 17 – your full home Christmas decor reveal

Dec 24 – No theme. Just let’er rip! SNS will be up for those loving the extra browse, however I won’t likely be highlighting or commenting. It’s time for family. 🙂

Dec 31 – Share this years’ Christmas story

I hope you’ll join in the fun!

~ SNS blah blah linkup rules ~

1. Please link up your intended post, NOT your blog homepage url. (post, then click the title of your post, then cut and paste that url) If your post has been deleted, please try again.

 2. Please put a link in your post (button or text) that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up! (see BUTTONS label under main blog header)

 3. This party is geared for DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style.

4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and/or within 1 month old.  This helps keep content fresh!

The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS and will remain open for your new additions at any time. Click HERE for the main list.

If you can’t decide which category to enter yours in, please just pick ONE and go with it. It’s all good!

  1. Thanks for hosting every week, you always get great submissions.

    Could you please clarify this:
    In other news… inLinkz now costs $2 a month.

    If you decide to join up for yourself, your registration through my button (also located on my sidebar) will help support SNS weekends. Thank-you!

    Does this mean the party hostess is charged $2 a month, or anyone using inLinkz to post at a party? (or both?)

    This is the first I’ve heard of it.

  2. I love all your collections. I’m with you about the no cost decorating this year. I’ve been spray painting and glittering things to make them the right colors for this year. Thanks for hosting your “fun as always” link party. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. DONNA, Thanks for hosting today! I love your eclectic collections. The cogs on your desk are fabulous!I would never have thought of faucet handles, even though I did recently pick up an old drain plug that was pretty cool!

  4. Oh, Donna…I just knew your collections would be so cool. I need to work on getting some things like you have. Have you noticed…I’ve become your stalker…:(

    My poor ole collection for today is very common and boring but….it’s a collection and it’s WHITE..:))

    Thanks a bunch for the list for Dec. This gives us a chance to work on them for awhile..
    xo bj

  5. Hi Donna! I like your idea of dressing up your vintage collections instead of spending money. I usually by a few small things to add to my collections, but I love torque-ing the stuff I already have. Thanks again! Jacqueline

  6. #4 Julie,

    Anyone that hosts a inlinkz party is charged the fee. In this case, that would be me, not those joining the party.

    Inlinkz also offers a way to make it up. If others use the inlinkz feature to host a party, they too will get charged, however if they register through my button, there’s a small kickback I get that can be applied towards what I get charged. Anyone else that uses the system is offered the same thing.

    If you click on the button, it takes you through the hoops and explains things. It’s news to me too. 🙂

    Thanks for linking up friends! It’s great to browse once again. 🙂


  7. Donna, I am number 42 under home decor…my daughter was talking to me while linking this and I forgot to link it to my post…it is linked to my blog. I am going to re-do it if you want to delete the first one. Sorry! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  8. Donna, your collections are cool….especially lovin’ the rusty cogs! I was going to post about my collection of dust bunnies, but they don’t photograph well!

  9. Thanks for hosting! I have a collection of faucet handles too so I’m curious to see what you are going to do with these.
    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.

  10. I am so thrilled to have found your blog… you have amazing ideas!!!… and if that was not enough you have offer this link up party too! I can see I am going to be busy surfing all weekend with this much eye candy in one place!
    Thanks so much!
