Vintage Inspiration #116: Inspired for Christmas

Hi Everyone, time for Vintage Inspiration
I know we've all had a busy week, and we're all in various stages of dressing our homes for Christmas. I think that I have my basic decorating accomplished, but I'll be adding special touches throughout the season. I really enjoyed going through the links this week, to see what you all have gotten accomplished. So many wonderful ideas for the Season. Here are a few of last week's links that you'll want to visit:

Jacqueline from Cabin and Cottage uses her love of books and vintage quilts and linens to set the stage for a warm and cozy Christmas. I always love seeing J's easy and relaxing vintage decorating style. 

You all may know how much I adore anything "sheep", so when I saw this adorable creation from Solange at Shaggy Sheep Home, I just had to share it with you. With her inspiration sheep, she gives a step by step tutorial, you'll want to try one too.

Lynn from The Vintage Nest put together this wonderful natural Thanksgiving centerpiece from collected elements from her garden. LOVE the silver champagne bucket in the vintage crate.

She also gave a link for "diet" Pumpkin Pie which I will be checking out!

Rhonda from Blue Creek Home created a beautiful pair of Angel Wings from a tutorial from Dawn at The Feathered Nest. Just perfect for Christmas!

Tammy from A Primitive Place  has used her vintage Santas at the base of a wonderful Christmas Tree. Who doesn't need a bucket full of Santas?

And an Old White Urn from Faye at  Wild Rose Vintage dressed simply and easily for Christmas. (love the urn, I have it's twin)

And I want to introduce you to my newest sponsor Christie Scibior, a wonderful watercolor artist, who has really captured my heart. Her paintings have a storybook quality, that are reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's lovely illustrative work. Christie, who has been painting for about 20 years, finds her inspiration from vintage books and postcards. You'll want to visit her Etsy Shop to see more of her lovely, misty romantic, original pieces; perfect for a special gift this Christmas.

Christie also sells stationary packages that can be personalized.
Personalized Watercolor Notecards
