Be Inspired Friday #121: What's NEW in the New Year

With a New Year, changes inevitably come. Two of my "sister" Friday Blogs are now discontinuing their weekly Friday linky parties. It started me thinking about opening up this party to be more of a place to share ALL your Inspiration. Yes, "vintage inspiration" will still be my main theme, but I know that I find inspiration in so many areas, so I'd like to throw out the invitation to all of you that have something fun and inspiring to share. Just a little name change to welcome a lot more fun to the party!

There are still so many wonderful Holiday posts;
 here are just a few of the great ones from last week.

Take a peek at the Parisian Styled New Year's Eve Party  from Laura at Decor to Adore. She gives a tutorial on the oh so adorable party hats, below.

Stephanie from Rose Petals and Rust has such a lovely feminine Dining Room in pastels. You'll want to see how she used a little "industrial" in her Christmas decor.

 Laura at Sunday View created a "Chalkboard" Banner
that I'm wanting to try.

Elizabeth from The Porcelain Rose
rings in the New Year with a vignette of Vintage Bling.

And Simone from Fleaing France proves she works well under pressure by decorating her home with wonderful vintage flair. You'll also want to see how she painted some wall tile in her bath. It's really gorgeous!

And since it's not too soon to start thinking about Valentine's Day
I thought I'd share a few beautiful items from my sponsor

Sweet as Cotton Candy

and this beautiful "Mother's Heart" 
created from Vintage Linens and Mother Brooch

Hope you'll run by and check out Leslie's wonderful shop,
 full of repurposed vintage.

Hope you'll join in on the party today,
be sure and visit my "sister" Friday Blog Parties.

OK, so feel free to share all your inspiration, vintage or new, recipes, and DIY. Just let it be something that inspires others. I'd also love for you to be a follower with GFC. Please have a link back to this blog to be featured! And welcome to all you new partiers!

Hi Debra,

Hi Debra, I'm a tad late to the party, but I want to share a mid century home and Be Inspired Friday seems the perfect venue. Loved seeing this home and talking with the owner. Both inspiring.:-)

I'm so glad that you are expanding your party to include things that are not necessarily vintage. I actually had a vintage-y subject to share this week at your party and was happy to be able to participate then I saw the happy news that other types of posts will be welcomed too in the future. Thanks so much for hosting the party for us!
