Vintage Inspiration #118

We had such a great turnout last week, and I think it was the largest ever on Vintage Inspiration! Thanks so much for coming by each week and sharing all the ways you use "Vintage". I'm always in awe of all that you do, and especially at Christmas. Decorating with "vintage" just brings out the best during the Holidays. Here are just a few of the wonderful links from last week's party:

Come for a visit at Carola's wonderful Boxwood Cottage;
truly magical for Christmas.



Susan from Must Love Junk brings together 
a wonderful display in her Hall with great vintage pieces.



Kimberlee at The Fancy Shack has a Christmas Living Room
all decked with beautiful neutrals. Even the pup fits right in!


Shenita from Embellishments found a wonderful way to display her nativity, placed inside a lovely crown. What a perfect symbol of the reason for Christmas.


Megan from Restoring the Roost is going "plain and simple"
this year using greenery and vintage touches.
Love the vintage tablecloth!



created a wonderful centerpiece from an old tote
 using a vintage bowl and pitcher.



I also want to share a link today to a great company here in the US that makes the most amazing chef knives! New West Knifeworks. They contacted me awhile back about doing a review for them, and I happily agreed. I've been cooking for more years than I want to admit, but I've never made it a priority until this last year when I've had to revamp our whole outlook on what and how we eat, due to my husband's health. Let me tell you when I opened the package from this company I was so excited. This knife is a work of art. I've never had a quality set of knives before, so this one was a real treat. What had I been missing all those years?!! I use it for most of my meal prep now and it's cut my time in the kitchen down, plus been a real joy. Wow, I feel like I should be on "Top Chef"! So I wanted to give you the link to a great Give Away they have going on right now. Go check out their site, I can guarantee you'll learn a few things about food prep, and there's still time to think about those special Christmas gifts. Thanks guys, you've made my year!

While you're out partying you might want to visit
 these great parties for some more Holiday Cheer!






Hope you'll join in today!
Link up to three posts current or golden oldies, that celebrate the Holidays; recipes, DIY, decor, Christmas traditions; anything vintage-y and Christmas. Please have a link back to Common Ground to be featured.


 Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone!

  11. Thank you so much for the feature, Debra! I am sweetly surprised :) My husband bought me that vintage poinsettia tablecloth a few years back and it had a matching vintage apron that went with it. I plan on visiting the others featured above- what a feast for the eyes this Christmas! And I agree, Holiday decorating fits so well with vintage pieces.
