Many of you are followers of the fabulous Debbie at Debbiedoos!   Today Debbie has announced that she is taking a blogging break.  I will miss her a lot but I do understand and support her reasons for this break and wish her well!  
Debbie has been the hostess of two fabulous linky parties, Garage Salen ParTay and the creative Before and After!   Kim at Savy Southern Style will be continuing the Before and After party and  Debbie has done me the honor of allowing me to continue the Garage Salen ParTay here at
A La Carte!  

If you are a reader of A La Carte then you know how I love bargains!  If they are found at thrift shops, yard or garage sales, Estate sales or flea markets that is my kind of shopping and I always call it 'Junkin'.   I am changing the name of the linky party to JUNKIN FINDS!  I hope you will all come back Friday and join my first linky party!  Debbie has graciously given me her button for the linky party and added the new name!  She is such a sweetie!

I know yard sales are more seasonal so this JUNKIN party should cover anything you find second hand!  I will have the link up Friday so hope to see you then!!

Debbie you are the best and I will really miss you.  Take care and enjoy your blogging break!

Hi Linda!
I can't think of anyone better than you to take over her meme. I like the name "Junkin Finds!"
I'm sorry to hear that she is leaving, but sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do.


Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Linda, I will miss Debbie, too in blogland. You are perfect to carry on the torch. We have big shoes to fill and I am honored.

Debbie said...

Finding things second hand does not seem to be one of my strong suits! However, I am really good at sales :) I love seeing what other people find and it always inspires me to keep looking. Glad you will be continuing the party!

Just thought I'd throw that at ya :) Congrats on taking over Debbiedoos that new name too..covers all areas of junkin...I know it will be a blast :)
Happy Belated B'day to your mama..she looks like a special lady...just like her daughter "you"

A Hopeful Heart said...

Linda, this is the perfect party for you to host(ess)!! It is SO totally you.

I definitely hope to participate, at least some weeks. I don't always have success at thrift stores (especially lately), and garage/yard sales are definitely over for the season in my neck of the woods.

I am going to snag the button for my blog.

Have a lovely day.


Chatty Crone said...

That is so exciting. I'll be looking forward to it.


GardenofDaisies said...

Linda, how fun! I will have to come over and check out junking finds!!

Ms. Bake-it said...

I too am going to miss Debbie. I will change the button and link which I have on my sidebar to the updated one reflecting the changes. I look forward to joining your Junkin Finds party!
