That's right everyone it time again for the Vintage Alphabet Party here at the Etsy Cottage Style Blog. August's party is brought to us by the letters N and O. If you're hard pressed for some vintage ideas, how about showing off your.........Napco pottery or figurines, Onieda Silver, Nippon china, Old Newspapers (ha 2 fer 1), Neckties, Easy Bake Oven or old oven..(you know the old Tappen.. or a  wood-buring), Ohio-Oklahoma-Oregon souvenirs, Oak furniture, Old-timey stuff..or.... vintage inspired Outdoor Room or Out-building................................................................................

Okay, there are some ideas. I'm sure you have more .. I am sure you all have some many wonderful collections I didn't even think of. We can't wait for you join us. Linky is below :D


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.
