Vintage Inspiration Friday #55 Leola's Fall Open House



is one of my very favorite shopping spots in the area.

And I look forward to their open houses all year,
Of course, the Fall Open House is "the Best",
so much fun inspiration!

Here are just some of the photos,
I'm saving "the whites" for next week.















































I literally had to go around 4 times to see everything,
and now that I'm checking the photos there were great things I missed.
Hope you enjoyed the fun!

Now for some entries from last week:

shared wonderful linens that her grandmother saved for her.



Rosemary from Ozma of Odds has worked her magic once again,
with her amazing "Seaside Chariot"!




created the absolute cutest bird house, out of scrap metals




Jane who is the off the chart creator from Mamie Jane's
has a shoe form that you will be wanting to try for Halloween.




And who wouldn't love a cement pumpkin for some Fall Fun?!
just check out Simply Bungalow

  1. Nice shop, beautifully displayed. I can see why you like it. I wish we could just push a button and really go to all these places. In the mean time, at least we get to share them with our eyes and mind. Thanks for sharing. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  33. Hi Debra...
    Well, I finally did it! I took the plunge and submitted by first ever Vintage Inspiration Friday, and of course committed a blunder... :( When I was linking up and it had a space for "name"...I thought it wanted MY name...not the name of my post. Aye yi yi! So under my vintage roller skates...you'll see my name. Sorry...so embarrassed. I wish I could erase it. Well, now I know. Experience is always the best teacher, right Debra? Thanks for hosting. :)
    Blessings & hugs,
    Karen
