Vintage Inspiration Friday " in the mix "

I am linking up to our lovely Debra from Common Ground

for her Vintage Inspiration Friday...


Sue's boy BRYCE inspires me.....




whenever I am in the Store I have to

stop by to see his wonderful talent


not only is Bryce full of talent but charm as well

he is never too busy to give a warm

hello and offer to help

his gentleness reminds me of why we love

this business of "junkin"





old vintage tool drawers that I sold this week





the tiny ones were my favorite




old doors inspire me



I layered these doors for more texture


as you can see the "crows have landed "

a girl can have fun!!!




Thank you Debra for letting us share

what inspires us...






vintage always inspires me...







Happy Friday Ladies xoxo

All that industrial....be still my heart!! I just can't get enough either! Although I have learned that I have to be careful bringing too much of it into my house.....it can get a little "cold feeling".

Your wedding picture is so beautiful! A moment captured in time! Love it!

Hope all is well Kate!! It's almost Friday!!!

Rust and ruffles...can it get any better than this post!
I love the industrial look as well. Don't use much of it in my home, but I do at W&T's. Is that a door being used as a wall in the first couple of photos? What a statement that makes!
I'm on board with the crows...love them!

I guess I should change my post to "our" boy Bryce! You know, I have to say, I'm very proud of my son and I know you know exactly how I feel, being a mom to two boys as well. I love crows, they look so good in your display. See you soon and as always "thank you" for the Country Road plug!

Take care, Sue

Lovely vignettes and photos, Kate...beautiful eye candy!

All That Jazz said...

Cool! You use crows too! In real life they can be kinda pesky buggers, but in fall and Halloween decor, they are so fun! ;-) Have a great weekend, Kate!!

OHHH WOW! I'd have a very hard time leaving that delightful store! THANK YOU for sharing it! I love those mirrors, those lights, those everything! LOL BTW, I have a CSN GC I'm giving away on my blog and I'd love if you would stop on by!

Robyn said...

Forgot to tell you I added you to my side bar ;-)

I'm liking the crows on the branch mixed with teh hydrangeas. Very pretty (if a crow can be pretty). Oh and the spider on the urn has inspired me to do something cute with my huge spider.

The birds are everywhere, ahhhhhhh! Ha, ha! I miss you! I"ve been so busy with kids school, therapy for my ankle and then after school activities. I think I'd go crazy if I had more than 2 kids!

I hope you are doing well!

Gorgeous wedding photo!
