Vintage Inspiration Friday

With fall just around the corner,
Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas,
ideas start swirling in our heads.

No, it's not too soon to start gathering our inspiration
for all that this time of year has in store.

I've been thinking about this for awhile and thought it might be fun to have one day of the week that lets us share our inspiration. I know there are a lot of parties out there. I love to join in also. Just think of this as a way to not only share our creative ideas, but also give credit to the source. Is it a magazine article or photo, designer, place, shop, book, word, color, another blog or blogger? The possibilities are endless. We have so many sources of "inspiration" let's celebrate ideas and inspired creativity. And if it's your own idea, that's still wonderful, feel free to share. We'd love to see it!

Last fall I found so many wonderful ideas for holiday decorating from magazines that I had stored away in files. Blogging gave me an opportunity to try out some projects that I had been wanting to do. Feel free to combine other parties, I just ask that your topic and post be "vintagely inspired". Please include that "inspired idea" somewhere in your post. Old posts or new. Feel free to use an idea and pictures from a previous post. I know I have several that I will re-use. I never get tired of a great idea!

I'll be setting up a linky on Thursday evenings at about 5:00 or 6:00 pm CST. And I'll take links all weekend. Now, I've never done a party or "linky" before, so keep a good thought for me as I get this rolling. We'll start Thursday evening, September 2. I know this is Labor Day Weekend, but join in if you can.

It doesn't have to be long and involved, just share what's on your mind with the upcoming holidays, decorating, crafts, renovation, a furniture or room re-do, a recipe; etc. you get the idea. An inspiration photo would be great. And if you have a finished creation, even better.(We'd also love to see the process). Don't feel like it has to be a major production. Let's just share our "inspiration"!

I have a button, and I'd love for you to grab it and display on your sidebar and post. Even if you don't join in every week, it will keep you thinking about a future idea. Please be sure and link back to Common Ground in your post.

Come on...Let's share that Inspiration!

You still have a few days to enter the

Lots of love to you all!
let's have some fun.
no pressure...
just fun.
