Vintage Alphabet

Alright Everyone,
    This is the last installment of the Vintage Alphabet 2010.
It is brought to you by the letters Y and Z. 
Boy. this year has gone by quickly. I have had way too much fun doing this monthly get-together and I have met soooo many wonderful, creative, talented, and inspirational Bloggers. Our Etsy Market Monday will continue in the New Year and we have some new get-together plans too. We'll announce those in January and the coming months.
Now, I've been thinking about these Vintage Alphabet letters for a while, so I have some suggestions to get the party going. Here goes..................
Y   Vintage Yellow Ware, vintage New Years decorations, memorabilia, or ephemera.               
        Vintage Yogi the bear, vintage Yarn creations, vintage Yardage of fabric, vintage Yellow gold jewelry,
        or any vintage Yankee doodle patriotic collection.

Z   Antique Zither, vintage Zebra prints of the 80's, Zany vintage kitch, Zillion more holiday collections,
       
Okay, okay, I'm stretching it with the Z's, but let's see what you all come up with :)

The Inlinkz is up and running.

InLinkz is easy to use. After you have "published" your Vintage Alphabet post on your blog, stop by Etsy Cottage Style and put your name and the permalink to your post into the InLinkz sign up box.


What is a permalink? A permalink is the direct link to your post, as opposed to your general blog address. When someone visits Etsy Cottage Style during the week and clicks on your link, they will be taken directly to your Vintage Alphabet post instead of having to search through your most recent posts to find it.

There are two ways to get your permalink. One way is to click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet post, then right click on the URL address showing in the address field at the top and select Copy. Then paste this link into Linky which will be available here. Click on "Enter" and you are all done! You will see your permalink posted. :-) Or, another way to add your link for Linky is to right click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet post, select "copy shortcut" and then paste this link into the URL box on the Linky sign-up.


Please remember this is a blog get-together to share vintage finds, collections, or how you utilize vintage items in your designs. Selling sites will be removed. Selling sites are welcome every first Monday of the month at Market Mondays

November's Vintage Alphabet

This month's letters are W and X...........hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...had to think about these a while, but if you need some suggestions how about showing off your Wysocki collection, vintage winter Wool blankets, and Westmoreland or Waterford is always beautiful. Vintage Waterpumps are great garden additions and don't forget your pics and statues of old Watermills. If you have a vintage Xylaphone....proudly show it off, but if not......vintage Xmas items are perfect for this week!
You all probably have some terrific ones of your own...you usually do.
