Boy...it's a good thing I watch American Pickers..lol....Okay, that should get us to thinking.
Once again, with the help of Linky, visitors to the blog will be directed to participating sites.

The Linky 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 Mr. Linky's 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

HI Melody,
This was a fun one, although the Q's a bit of a challenge. I had many items to work into the mix.
Thank you once again for hosting our monthly event.
Have a wonderful week ahead and Happy Creating.
Blessings to you.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Melody, this was fun! I know I am going to enjoy the challenge even more as we go through the alphabet. What will I do for V and Z?! Tough ones! :-)
I'm glad I joined the Etsy Cottage Style group and have Celestina Marie to thank because that is where I first found all of you!
Hugs and blessings!

This was a good one for me! Since I missed last month's letters, I found collections that incorporated N and O as well. Like Ohio Pottery and Rhinestone Necklaces. :-)

Off to visit the other collections...
