Be Inspired Features and Link Party #206

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

 Let's check out the latest round of fabulous features and be sure to link up your latest project at this week's party .....

Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations turned a yard sale find into an elegant country style bench!



Brooke from Start @ Home Decor totally transformed a dated curio cabinet!



You'll think twice about all those lamps you see in thrift stores once you check out this rustic farmhouse style makeover from Jamie at Anderson + Grant!



I know that many of you have a box or two of rusty "stuff" in your garage or basement. Well Diana from Adirondack Girl @ Heart has some tips for cleaning and caring for rusty metal that just might be the motivation you need to get that project started! 



And I'm also pretty sure that you have a stash of scrap wood too. Why not make yourself a nifty blanket ladder like this one from Jen at Noting Grace!



And after all that hard work, you deserve a treat! So how about a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie from Gina at Kleinworth & Co.  It's actually loaded with all kinds of good stuff!


Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back!

Be Inspired Features and Link Party #203

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

Elizabeth and Co.

I'm celebrating this week! Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of my little wreath shop on Etsy! It felt like my birthday. The only thing missing was cupcakes! ... Creating wreaths just makes me happy. And growing my shop has been a wonderful experience and totally exceeded my expectations. I can't say enough good things about my Etsy experience. I really appreciate the talent and supportive nature of the Etsy community. ... And today Etsy rolls out a brand new look and shopping experience. For the last few weeks, shop owners (1.6 million of us) have been busy fluffing and tweaking in preparation for the changes. I hope you'll stop by, check it out and support this amazing handmade and vintage marketplace!

And speaking of amazing, you all are so talented! 
Check out this week's fabulous party features .....

How charming is this antique chair makeover from Terry at The Curator's Collection!



I love this farmhouse table with benches from Amy at Home Happy Home!



Check out the details on this BIG beautiful buffet from Cristina at Finding Grace Interiors!



Cindy from DIY Beautify gave her guest room a makeover for spring and I think her guests will want to stay a while!



Sarah from She Holds Dearly slipcovered not one, but two recliners and the result is so fresh and pretty!



This nursery gallery wall from Samantha at Little Bits of Home is super sweet!



I have never made Beer Battered Fish at home, but this recipe from Don't Sweat The Recipe makes me want to give it a try!


And then I could have these delicious Coconut Cupcakes for dessert. Mmmm, sounds like a perfect meal!

Be Inspired Features and Link Party #202

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

Elizabeth and Co.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We just wrapped up our first tag sale of the year and it was a good one! Thanks so much to all of our local friends who came out to shop and say hello. And thanks to our long-distance friends for your encouragement and good wishes. We now have some serious restocking to do!

Now let's check out the features from our last party and I can't wait to see what you've been up to lately .....

Easter may be over, but Samantha from Little Bits of Home shared a collection of  beautiful tablescape ideas that would be perfect to use all throughout the spring!



I especially love the simplicity of this one!



Once considered "the ugly brown desk", this transformation from Terry at The Curator's Collection is now simply charming!



Joan from Scavenger Hunt had one of those "I can make that" moments and created this cool rustic sign. *Bonus points if you can name her inspiration!



I've been seeing "naked cakes" all over Pinterest and I really like the rustic feel of them. Head over to What Meegan Makes for all the details on how to make your very own. This one has raspberry filling - yum!



Cristina from Finding Grace Interiors shared a Lemon Bread recipe that I can't wait to try!


And I frequently profess my love for coconut, so you know these macaroons from Gina at Kleinworth & Co. are totally calling my name!

Early Spring 2016 Tag Sale Preview

Happy Tuesday! We're skipping this week's link party to bring you a tag sale preview. Our first sale of the year starts tomorrow and we're busy dusting, fluffing and getting all of our ducks, chicks and bunnies in a row!

























 I know I mention this in every preview, but it's hard to take pictures before a sale. We fill the porches on sale day and much of that outside stuff is floating around the house. It will be all neat and tidy for the sale, I promise!







And it looks quiet and peaceful outside now, but soon the back yard will be overflowing with garden decor, industrial salvage, old windows, doors, shutters and so much more!






We are so lucky to have this amazing old house to host our sales. When you come for a sale, we hope you feel like you've been invited into our home for a visit. The house was built in 1890 and retains much of it's original charm and character. We get questions about the house at every sale. My husband's grandparents lived here for many years and he has wonderful memories of playing here as a child!



Let's head upstairs!



























So there you have it, a little sneak peek at what we have in store for you this week!

We'll be open...
Wednesday, March 23rd from 3pm to 7pm
Friday, March 25th from 9am to 5pm
Saturday, March 26th from 9am to 4pm

Elizabeth & Co. Vintage
438 East Main Street
Westminster, MD 21157


If we don't see you this week, hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Remember to follow the bunny ... he has the chocolate!
