Very Vintage

Hi Everyone~
Today I would like to share a little vintage inspiration by introducing you to some special women who have a knack for decorating, creating, and repurposing. Vicky at Rusty Rooster Vintage is always creating such wonderful pieces and sharing her amazing talents with so many in blogland...

Her awesome personality seems to leap off the pages of her blog as she invites us to see all the beautiful creations she works on in the midst of raising a family and blending all of her talents together! I hope you will visit her--You are in for a big treat as you "wow" your way through her blog! (And I think she looks like a movie star behind those sunglasses on her profile pic!)

Barbara at Treasures From the Heart blends her artistic knack with repurposing and puts things together in such a way that I am always astounded by her talent and her gentle take on life....When I leave her blog, I feel nostalgic for simpler times...times when people took a moment to enjoy a bird's nest or a touch of lace. Barbara is a busy person and how she finds any time to blog is beyond me...

You see, she has an online shop, but also has a beautiful shop in the town where she lives....Oh, how I wish I could visit and see all that she creates in person!!! I hope you will pay her a visit...It will be a treat, for certain!

Erin has a special talent for repurposing and her work can be seen on her blog called Like
Grandma's....Just look at this wonderful project she did recently...She took a lamp shade...

and turned it into this beautiful creation! Many more of her projects are on her blog and I know you'll love being inspired by her!!! Erin's ability to look at the "ordinary" and turn it into the "extraordinary" is amazing!

And lastly, I would like to announce the winner of my Blog Candy~It is none other than Karen at She Uses Her Words! Congratulations Karen!!! I can't wait to see what you create with this kit that has so many wonderful "beachy" items!

Wishing all of you a beautiful, carefree week full of wonder!!!

  8. Cindy- I have to run to the store..but when I get home I am going to go check every single one of these blogs out! They look amazing. And, you are amazing for featuring them. Before blogging I found that many people were so hesitant to share names and places of others that did wonderful it took something away from them and their talent. I think bloggers are the most generous/sharing people in the world....all united to uplift and spotlight others! Thanks for being one of those good souls~ xxoo Diana
