  3. Kim@Snug HarborAugust 4, 2015 at 5:30 PM

    Congrats on reaching 200 parties!! I'd love to be entered in your give away. I like redoing so many things, but mostly furniture the best!

  4. Linda @ Itsy Bits And PiecesAugust 4, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Congrats on the milestone! Great giveaway, Betsy! I would love to win this pretty necklace! I love re-purposing industrial pieces...

  7. Kimberley SeasideaveAugust 4, 2015 at 7:37 PM

    Hi Betsy & Co-Hosts!
    I Love.Love.Love your vintage necklace, it is so pretty!
    I repurpose everything...my favorite things to repurpose are roadside rescues that someone else has discarded for the garbage truck. Anytime I see something out to the curb, I take it because I know I will be able to re use/ re make it into something...which I have done many times and posted on my blog! I even dumpster dive! ;)
    Thank you for letting me share here! Have a great rest of your week!

  8. Jeanette SumruldAugust 4, 2015 at 7:40 PM

    That necklace is divine! I adore it. I love to repurpose items that I find at our church resale shop/food pantry. My Mom runs the food pantry and is always on the lookout for for me. Right now I have a case of glass globes that I'm turning in to Halloween ghosts! And I'm always quick to scout out my neighbors trash on trash day! I've found lots of cool free junk to spruce up that way. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway.

  9. Lucy AuburnAugust 4, 2015 at 7:45 PM

    I love to repurpose just about anything. But one of my favourites is to repurpose fabric from curtains, or clothing. If I actually had a sewing machine that worked, I would be busy sewing, so instead I take out my glue gun. My latest project involved turning a pillow into a wreath.

  10. Tuula @ Thrifty Rebel VintageAugust 4, 2015 at 7:58 PM

    Thanks so much for hosting. Love the necklace! I will repurpose pretty much anything I can think of. I especially love making things for the gardens. Thanks for the chance to win that beautiful necklace. Congrats on 200 parties!

  11. Donna WilkesAugust 4, 2015 at 8:37 PM

    Beautiful necklace - I love repurposing old parts of furniture

  12. Anne's Attic - DesignAugust 4, 2015 at 9:00 PM

    Besty, thank you once again for hosting another great party! Jo

  13. Julia - Vintage with LacesAugust 4, 2015 at 11:09 PM

    I would be thrilled to win your gorgeous necklace, Betsy. There are so many things I like to repurpose but I think my favorites are rusty finds from the scrap yard and used clothes.

  14. Deanies StashAugust 4, 2015 at 11:58 PM

    I love the necklace! It would be such a privilege to win it. I think one of my favorite repurposes is to make old vintage jello tins into pin cushions. But I repurpose as many different things that I can. Congratulations to all of you on the 200th party!

  15. While I LingerAugust 5, 2015 at 3:13 AM

    I love to repurpose old picture frames into my decor even if it means just letting sit empty on a shelf.

  16. Wendy JohnsonAugust 5, 2015 at 5:08 AM

    I have garage and out building full of of furniture, wood, glass and stuff but so far I am still gathering ideas. I would still love your beautiful necklace, lol

  17. AngiAugust 5, 2015 at 5:19 AM

    Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway! I make jewelry too, and my favorite things to use are old buttons, thimbles and other old sewing notions.

  18. rushAugust 5, 2015 at 5:20 AM

    I'll know what to repurpose when I find it. Right now it's old jewelry into new pieces. Soon, I will have a garage where I can go big! Love being part of the party!

  19. Candy ChilcoatAugust 5, 2015 at 5:39 AM

    Thanks for such a great giveaway, please enter me, love the necklace, just beautiful! I love to remake anything I can get my hands on, love rustic vintage items!

  20. KimAugust 5, 2015 at 5:59 AM

    Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous necklace. I would love to enter your giveaway. My daughter is a vintage jewelry junkie and she would just flip over that piece!

  21. Creations By CindyAugust 5, 2015 at 6:07 AM

    Congratulations Betsy on your 200th Party! I love all the features today. Can't wait to browse. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  22. AnnAugust 5, 2015 at 6:09 AM

    Happy 200th!

  23. debmfischrAugust 5, 2015 at 6:24 AM

    Congratulations! I love your creativity and inventiveness. My favorite thing to re-purpose is jewelry. I especially love taking my mom's old "pieces" and bringing new life to them. She would have loved it, too!

  24. CarolynAugust 5, 2015 at 7:16 AM

    The necklace is just stunning! I love to repurpose anything that comes my way - recently an antique string holder into a planter hanger, and an old lantern into a candleholder. It's such fun to look at items in new and different ways - preserving their existence along the way. Thanks so much for sharing all the great tips and ideas! This is always such a fun place to be! Have a good week!

    I am not part of any party or linky thingy, (LOL), but I just wanted to say that I love your photos and items here, and that you have a lovely blog. Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  26. PattyAugust 5, 2015 at 1:05 PM

    Congrats on 200 ! Love the necklace and the way you repurpose. I love to remake things I find at the thrift shops or especially curb shopping treasures. Just picked up something yesterday and can't wait to see if my idea will work! I am not a blogger, but you should be able to email me. Just in case.... soriano471@sbcglobal.net
    *** thank you !

  27. Mare WilliamsAugust 5, 2015 at 7:15 PM

    Your blog is sooo interesting!! My favorite thing to repurpose is hard to pick....BUT, right now, it would have to be broken leaf rakes! I've already made myself one to hold special photos of grandkids, decorated with pretty jewelry. Also, I have some others ready for Christmas gifts. I can't wait to see how my gifts are received by the recipients!! My email is mandm23@comcast.net, since I am not a blogger. And thanks for the chance to win your repurposed silverware necklace which is gorgeous!!

  28. Angie ChavezAugust 5, 2015 at 8:45 PM

    Your necklaces are so gorgeous, Betsy! Thanks for co-hosting the VIP with me - here's to the next 200 parties! :)

  29. Marie Lost Bird StudioAugust 6, 2015 at 6:14 AM

    Hi Betsy,
    I'm new to the party. Thanks for hosting and for te chance to win your gorgeous necklace.
    Have a lovely day.

  30. Linda @ A La CarteAugust 6, 2015 at 10:46 AM

    Betsy, I am so happy to link up for the 200th party! I love to repurpose old cards and fabrics into art! I'm not good at it, but I try!

  31. LauraAugust 6, 2015 at 1:08 PM

    Love the card catalog makeover and that vintage trailer!
    Thanks so much for hosting, Betsy!

  32. Cindy McManusAugust 6, 2015 at 6:21 PM

    Wow! 200 Parties! Love the necklace and love to repurpose something that was originally used for a totally different purpose. Does that make sense?
    Thanks so much! Cindy

  33. Karleen MauldinAugust 6, 2015 at 8:05 PM

    Love the necklace! I'm in the middle of a little re-purposing project: an old wooden tool caddy to put on our kitchen table to hold our vitamin & supplement bottles!!

  34. Fran CaswellAugust 7, 2015 at 7:06 AM

    Thank you for the chance to win such a beautiful necklace. I just love it.

  35. Ronny RobinsonAugust 7, 2015 at 7:34 AM

    Love to follow these parties. Would love your necklace. I have been thinking about taking some of my mothers silverware and turning them into these necklaces and giving one to each of my girls and to my granddaughters and my great granddaughters, instead of trying to decide which one should receive her silverware.

  36. Down Sprigg LaneAugust 7, 2015 at 11:02 PM

    Love, love love this! I love to repurpose anything and everything. Right now it is old wood and furniture! Have leather belts I want to make cuffs with. Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize!!
