Vintage Inspiration Friday # 65: Your Inspiring Thanksgiving

Having a bout with the sickies this last week
 has put me at the bottom of the Inspiration Barrel.
Good thing I have you guys to turn to for some of the best out there!

I do have one fella I don't want to leave out.
I'm particularly fond of this little guy,
I guess it's his neutral coloring,
or maybe all the wonderful crazing he has...

so he gets to strut his stuff for a few photos today.

Our younger daughter and her husband that live here in town
are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year; her inauguration!
I did make a Birthday cake for our older daughter;
 Mississippi Mud, and a Waldorf Salad,
the whole time wearing a Hazmat Suit. 
(you know the protective suits they use for hazardous 
or toxic spills...only I'm the only thing that's toxic!!)
I haven't had a cold in years, what wonderful timing this was! 

My mom and sister are doing the heavy cooking. thank goodness.

So I'm wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, 
full of God's Blessings.

Loved this from Pinterest

Let's take a peek at some of that Inspiration from last week.

Michele from Primp shared a Thanksgiving bunting
 that she had made from a free download. 
I've seen a lot of garlands and buntings,
 but this one really has a wonderful vintage look.

for a wonderfully simple and "homey" Burlap Wreath.
Love that chalkboard background too!

Renee from Where the Grass is Greener has transformed 
some little muslin bags into Holiday treasures.
You'll want to go by and check them out

has been decorating her front porch, 
you'll love all the fun vintage elements she's used.

creates a Whimsical Nature Themed Tablescape that is so pretty. 
You'll want to see all the fabulous photos.
"White" and antlers...hard to get better than that!!

Honestly I could do a dozen more features of all the great tablescapes, 
and wonderful furniture and decor ideas!
You guys are awesome!

Hope you'll join in for the party,
"Anything vintage or vintage inspired"
and all your Holiday Decor!
