Vintage Inspiration Friday

I love this picture with it's natural elements and rustic feel... I know, I'm a shabby chic girl, but I do love many different styles, Shabby chic and French or just my favorites! Now, since I haven't decorated for Halloween I found these great pictures full of Halloween decor and thought I would share these with you! I'm joining up with Debra @ commom ground for Vintage Inspired Friday!

So much Halloween decor, they even brought in the black cat!!!
What a wonderfully decorated front porch... but what catches my eye the most is that sweet little doggy at the front door! Hope you enjoyed, if you want to see lots more Halloween decor go over to Debra's @ common ground, and check out all of the other participants!

Hi Daphne!!

You changed your posts so fast on me I did not get a chance to comment on the last two. I just adore those purses you made! Love them!
The last post...that pillow you made for Laurie is divine! YOu are way too talented!!
The old steamer trunk in the photo did you paint it? I have the same trunk and am now thinking I would like to paint it? I love it white and with the roses . Now you have my creative juices flowing!!

Hi Daphne,
Love this post and your pics are an inspiration for Autumn. I especially love the first pic of the rustic outdoor table look. I too love romantic chic and shabby roses,but I live with a mix of styles that seem to blend together with color and accents.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. So nice to see you. I am going to grab your blog button for my blog list.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Love everything sweet D! You certainly have shown everything one needs to be inspired!

Now...I thought of sharing your blog button on my page but I can't find which one!



Bohemian said...

Yes I'm a lover of eclectic styles too... I am not much of a purist of any one style since there are so many that captivate me. I ADORE that first pix of the Rustic Tuscan style setting... I could definitely roll like that in an outdoor space. *wink*

Daphne ~
Those are wonderful pictures !!
I went to Laurie Annas Wednesday and
saw your beautiful pillows !
Oh my gosh that shop is to die for !!


Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hey Pam, no I didn't paint the roses on the trunk... I wished I was that talented, but no it was like that when I bought it! When I put the picture of the trunk on the post it kinda made me want to go and get it from my booth and bring it home, cause I really do like it, but don't know where I will put it!!! Thanks for stopping by... hugs~~~ Daphne

I love all those pictures. Wouldn't it be great to be able to own all those pumpkins? Every year I tell myself to try and grow them. And every year I'm at the grocery store buying them! Marcia

Pamela said...

Well I am still thinking about painting it Daphne. It is so dark and not my thing! As i said in my latest post I like girly and you do too. I will use your photo as my inspiration!
I also keep forgetting to tell you that I love your ads in the Romantic homes magazine! I always show everyone your ads and exclaim...I know her lol !! Pam xo
