Vintage Inspiration #87 Shabby Story

You're in for a real treat today that's full of shabby pastel goodness.
Say Hello to Lynn from Shabby Story, who lives in Avon, Indiana with her husband, son, and an adorable American Bulldog named Bailey. Many of you may know Lynn as her blog and photos continuously have been featured on many of the weekly link parties. Lynn started her blog late last summer to share the renovation of her new home, and she is fortunate to have a handy hubby that helps her translate her vision for the most amazing projects.

Pink Garden Cabinet







Not only are her projects wonderful, but her photography and styling
have me feeling like I'm thumbing through magazine pages.

Lacey Potting Table









This is the one I flipped over and featured here on Vintage Inspiration,
an outdoors mantle vignette.




(If you pin Lynn's wonderful photos,
 please go to her blog so she gets the link.)

Thanks so much Lynn,
We love your blog!



Here are a few other great links you'll love from last week;

Swiss Miss medicine cabinet from Vickie at Ranger 911




A wonderful table vignette from Linda at the White Weathered Hutch



Please read this post from Gail at Bible Love Notes,
you'll be blessed.



took us shopping at Marburger...love this idea!

(anyone know whose booth this is? just gorgeous!)


I want you to know how much I appreciate you all coming over here to party each week. I'm continuously amazed at all the talent and inspiration you all put forth. It's no wonder why all the magazines are focusing on bloggers, you all are the best!

Hope you'll join in today for Vintage Inspiration
"anything vintage or vintage inspired".

PLEASE link back to Common Ground within your post.
I hate not being able to feature wonderful inspiration!


If you were featured today or in the past,
please feel free to grab a button on the sidebar!

You'll find me here this weekend:







OK, Show us what you got!!
xoxo,

  58. Oh, I wish I had something to link!! FABULOUS, JUST FABULOUS!! I guess my question would be, how are you able to keep these lovely things from being destroyed outside during bad weather. I guess maybe you have to remember to take them inside... At any difference, IT IS GORGEOUS! I love this style.

  66. Debra, thanks for the honor of being featured on Common Ground. I've long enjoyed visits here and always leave full of inspiration. Sorry I don't know the name of the booth when I shot the photo. Wish I too had that information. It's a stunning idea. Makes me want to begin a collection of vintage bottles. Would love to have a long French farm table.
