"Vintage Inspiration Friday" W/Debra~

Hi all, I hope everyone is having a great week. I have been super busy! So I apologize for not being able to visit you all this week.
I thought I would post a couple of photos of some things I got at the flea last week for Debra's "Vintage Inspiration Friday."

Most of you already saw my bucket I got from the flea, but I just had to show you the wall in the background. I just covered it with vintage sheet music, book pages, dictionary pages, and post cards. I love how it turned out!

Table runner made out of vintage grain sack.

And for those of you who haven't seen her, my new lady #3.

On another exciting note, the premiere issue of "Inspiration...Vintage, The Vintage Inspired Home" is tomorrow. The first feature is with the warm and sweet Debra from "Caper's of the Vintage Vixen's", so please join us!

Please stop by "Common Ground" and view the other V.I.F participants!

Have a great night.

  23. Hello, Just found your Blog I'm Loving it !!

  24. Sooo pretty, love the white against the pages and of course the roses are a perfect touch!
    It doesn't get any better than that!

  25. Hi Melinda,
    LOve the bucket, of course you know how I love galvanized its been featured on my site. Love, and wish everything on your site was in my home. What you did the the wall with the book pages I did to my wall in my shop space and I than went over it with smeary faux style white plaster paint, I love that it felt like a old wall:)

    You have inspired me to do a spot behind something like yours. I know its way to early to talk about Christmas, but I can see a small tree sitting on the chair in front of the papered wall and the tree all in paper as well.

    You really inspire the best!!
    Now Melinda I have been painting furniture all week and some art as you have seen, If I do another piece of framed art when I find more molding frame wood what do you like, and you would have first dibs if you were to like that piece, you would not be obligated. Look at my way back old for one that I did for Laura at VERBENA NESTED TREASURES she is on my side bar.

    Thank you for your biggest support in what I feature!
    Love your Inspiration...Vintage, The Vintage Inspired Home
