Vintage Inspiration Friday #5


Since Fall is my favorite time of the year,
and since October is my favorite month of the year...
I want to invite you to a Party.
OK, two parties!!

Vintage Inspiration Friday
is the perfect time to host a party with a Fall theme.


Grab those pumpkins and mums,
dig up the ghosties and goblins if you dare...
find the candles and Fall delights.



So on Friday October 8,
let's all show our front porches
decorated for Fall and Halloween.



From Fall to Frightful!



And then on October 29
let's put together a fun
Fall or Halloween table.
Inside or Outside,
Have fun and go all out!!











Even though this is a theme,
please join in even if you're not doing the porch or table.
Whatever Vintage Inspiration you may have is welcomed.
I just thought this would be fun to theme this month of October.

Did I ever tell you...
I just LOVE FALL!! ?

THOUGHT SO...

PUT A NOTE ON YOUR CALENDAR AND
 GRAB THE BUTTON
ON MY SIDEBAR...
THEN JOIN THE FUN!


Oh, and not to forget,
 Shannon from A Southern Belle With Northern Roots
has won the September give away for all party participants!

I'll share a new Give-Away for October, next week. 


love ya,
Debra

I really should be getting in on this party. This post reminded me to stick a pumpkin in the microwave. Had to run out in the dark:)
I should be decorating with them... not eating them!

Thank you for the kind email the other day. You're such a good friend and loved hearing from you!
