Vintage Inspiration 2 Year Anniversary Give Away!

Two years ago this week I started Vintage Inspiration Friday. I wanted this party to be different than the other weekly parties; I wanted it to be about celebrating all things "vintage"; How you were using vintage and all the inspiration you were finding and creating. I had no idea of all the amazing talent and creative things you were doing. Thank you for such a fun two years! So many of you are weekly linkers and have become great friends. Each week there are new blogs and faces that are painting, sewing, tansforming, and decorating with such imagination and vintage flair. I've found so much inspiration from each of you, so thank you for participating here. I've loved each week!

So to say a big "thank you" to all the participants of
  Vintage Inspiration
I wanted to have a Give Away Celebration;
 not one but two gift packages to be won.



The first gift package is a beautiful handmade pillow from Judy at 20 North Ora. Judy just started her new blog a few weeks ago, after having her successful  Etsy Shop of the same name.


Such beautiful details...





 this first package also includes...

A $30 Gift Certificate to the Etsy Shop of



The second package is a copy of the new book
Through the French Door by Carolyn Westbrook


and a wonderful handmade one-of-a-kind lace heart from 
the sweet and talented Julia, of Vintage with Laces.


Thank you gals for donating these beautiful items for the Give Away, 
you are much appreciated!

2 Winners will be chosen, 
the first pick has her choice of packages.

Here's how to enter, 
please leave a separate comment for each.
  1. Please be a follower of Common Ground
  2. Link up a vintage post to this week's party
  3. Blog, Tweet, Facebook, etc. about the Give Away


Super Easy!

So here's some great inspiration from last week:

OH MY GOSH...
can you get any more amazing than this
"Timely Garden Fence Chandy"
from Lynn at Shabby Story?



Love the chocolate brown and gorgeous floral of the 
Thrift Store Chair Makeovers
by Kristen at Sophia's



Chippy Change on a candle pedestal from



Kerry from House TalkN' 
went color crazy with her fun new accessories.


and a fabulous Master Bedroom Reveal 
from Kristie at Market Nine Home


We're also starting our Fabulous Fall Fun posts
link up to three posts, new or past, that share great Fall inspiration.


and be sure and join in these other fun Friday parties:







Thanks again everyone for being faithful party friends over here. Remember, to be featured you need a link back to Common Ground within your post. You also may notice I've recently switched to a dot com address, which makes it a little easier to type out and remember. Hope you'll join in on the Give Away, it closes next Friday night, September 14.

love you all bunches,
