Vintage Inspiration # 99 Miss Gracie's House

Welcome to Vintage Inspiration...
the place where you can come and share your love for all things vintage
and stay, to be inspired.

Rene had been blogging for over a year when I started. She was one of my first "go-to" blogs for wonderful vintage white inspiration. Her photos have an ethereal quality, that draw the reader in and create an atmosphere of yesteryear. Each post is not only a chronicle of her life, but shares a "message" on living.

We've seen the transformation of her lovely farmhouse...





And we've gotten to know her through her posts on her wonderful family,
loving marriage, and her deep love for God.



We've seen room by room as she has touched her home
 with a soft kiss of white.



Rene's husband transforms her "vision" into reality...



And we've wished that we could have been there
for her yearly Barn Sales.



And now, she and her hubby have just completed their newest project...



This looks like camping in style!


If you haven't met Rene 
then please take this opportunity to go by and say Hello,
then fall in love with...


We had lot's of great inspiration last week.
Here's just a little.

Cathy from What's Old is New sharing a Rustic Country Garden
(LOVE this old bike)



Kimberlee at the Fancy Shack
shared her new light and bright Living Room Reveal



Jen from City Farmhouse shares her Dining Room Reveal.
(don't you love the grain sack stripe on the bench?)



And Jeannine from the Concrete Cottage painted this great old 
screen door in a damask design and turned it into a real work of art!



Hope you'll join in today with your links.
"anything vintage or vintage inspired"
Please have a link within your post to be featured.

Don't worry it will appear shortly)

  47. There are a handful (yours is one) that after I visit, I feel blessed for stopping in. Rene's is one. It's not just the style of her beautiful home, but more the tone she sets...a feeling of contentment. There is no question as to what her priorities are and that is an inspiration to me.
    Love ya!

  62. Rene is truly as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside (just like her home) I love her. I have been able to go to her barn sale and it is so much fun. I have so much stuff of hers in my house. The store that she sells her things in is one of my favorite places to shop in in Boise whenever I go.
    This is a great post about sweet Rene.
    hugs...

  63. Who wouldn't love Rene's style. I've been fortunate to have been able to spend time with this lovely lady twice and she is as sweet as she looks.

    Thanks for hosting such a great party each week:-)
