Vintage Inspiration Friday #1: Sunflowers

I'm inspired by...Sunflowers

Some think of Sunflowers as a Summer flower, but here in the Midwest, their blooms and maturity are all signs that Fall is almost here. Cornfields edged in the brown eyed beauties, bursting forth seeds to feed the hungry birds, can be found in abundance and variety.

I love to have my home and decor reflect the seasons and nature,
 so for me, this time of year is expressed perfectly
 in a sunflower's brilliant colors of golds and browns.

The perfect way to transition from Summer into Fall

My white ironstone pitcher's bouquet changes with each season.

I'm even enjoying my "Sunflower" candle from White Barn Candle Co.

The hallway sideboard's old seedbox has transitioned
 from Spring, to Summer and now to Fall.

And as much as I'd love to have the luxury of fresh flowers,
my kitties are a deterrent.

I've learned there's a huge difference between silk faux flowers
and plastic fake ones...
you know what I mean?

My old mason jars that held hydrangeas this summer,
now find that the sunflowers have taken over.

Hope you're having a great first week of September!
Kids getting back to school,
decorating for fall and then Halloween,
cozying up our nests...

 So how about some Fall inspired goodies for a giveaway!

Sunflower Soap...

Orange Bar Striped kitchen towels
and stack of fall inspired notes.

So, thanks for coming by,
 and I hope you'll join in on this new weekly party,
all about finding and sharing our inspiration.

Please link back to Common Ground in your post,
and Let's have some Inspired Fun!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
