Welcome to the 21st week of the History and Home Link Party, the place to share your articles about home decor, home reno, antiques, vintage finds, and history, or just to visit the party-goers and see what they’ve shared.
Do you have something that is like your “toys” to you? Something you like to play with, rearrange, put out and have a photo shoot?
Sometimes I’m like a little girl playing with her toys, I just love to play with my vintage kitchen glass. That’s the great thing about holidays and changing seasons…it gives me an excuse to rearrange the dishes!

I imagine this was put together, and it’s interior shelves added, for either an antique booth display, or perhaps a country store. I change my display on it about monthly, as it’s a great place to show and enjoy my vintage kitchen glass collection.

Well, I managed to get in a bit of history and home with this one, and now it’s my fellow-bloggers’ turn to share their history and home-related articles that they’ve been working on. Party time!
