Vintage Inspiration #115 Being Thankful

Hope you found us a day early this week. In order to enjoy our special time with family and friends, I'm just starting a little early. And speaking of Thanksgiving, I want to say "Thank You" to all of you who come over here each week to join in on the vintage fun. Thanks so much for sharing your homes, dreams, and ideas with all of us. So here are a few links from last week that bring out the best of "vintage".
Mary from Home is Where the Boat Is had a little "window of opportunity" to do some decorating at her Potting Shed. Using vintage turkey platters and plates, she dressed up her amazing little shed for the Thanksgiving holiday.



Carolyn from Aiken House and Garden has been planning for a more simple approach to Christmas, and is using lot's of pops of traditional red. Carolyn's home and blog posts look like they came straight from a magazine. Thank you, Carolyn for sharing the romance of your lovely home and gardens with all of us.



Patti from Ivy and Elephants shared a gorgeous crystal cruet set, I can just see this for an elegant Christmas tablesetting. Lot's of crystal and silver are a magical way to decorate for the Holidays.


Diane from An Extraordinary Day gave us the pros and cons, ins and outs, of transforming a gifted sideboard. Gosh, I'm a sucker for a white sideboard!!! And this one turned out amazing!


Pocket Mirrors with a vintage touch from Erika at Boulevard de L'antiqueWouldn't these be a wonderful Christmas Gift or Stocking Stuffer? Love those images!


And Penny from  Penny's Vintage Home, decorated her wonderful white piano with a menagerie of Christmas delight. A winter wonderland of Santas, deer, and other woodland creatures playing in a glittered forest of candlelight.


Hope you'll join in with all your vintage and vintage inspired posts. Please have a link back to Common Ground within your post to be featured. And yes, it's finally time to unpack all those vintage treasures and ornaments, so come share all your Christmas bits and baubles over here, from now till New Years!



Check out these other great Friday parties for some weekend fun!






Have a wonderful weekend,
 full of gratitude for what's so important in our lives!
lots of love and blessings,
