Vintage Inspiration #83 Easter Party Picks

Before we get on with the linky today, I just have to ask who saw "Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis" last night. Could any of you relate in just the smallest way? While I love to see the makeovers (Jeff's style is more sleek and modern than I could or would ever want to be) I can really get into the heads of these people, and even OCD Jeff. If you don't watch, they are really worth the hour spent because it causes us to examine our own personality and the way we live, not just our decor. Catch it on Wednesday evenings on Bravo, 9/8c. I imagine you can watch episodes soon on the Bravo website. I have to say, about 5 minutes in I started grabbing things and  looking at them in a different light.

On with our Vintage Inspiration... this week it comes from all of you that joined in for the Easter Party. I thought I'd take some extra time to highlight some of your wonderful links this week. So much great inspiration and decor. Here are a few to enjoy.

Lynn from Shabby Story has a backyard area that I've just fallen in love with. She and her hubby built a mantel from vintage elements. The chair with tulips is just the icing on the cake!!

(btw, this link had the most clicks. I can see why,
 this photo grabs your attention!)

Erika and Miriam from Be Book Bound created a gorgeous but oh-so-easy Spring Wreath. I love this idea, because it would be so easy to change out the look after Easter, or for that matter using this same idea for any seasonal wreath. Great job gals!

The small plaque within the wreath. LOVE the black door, too!

Erin's posts from Erin's Art and Garden  are always a mini vacation for me. Her wonderful art, soft colors, and fresh decorating with vintage finds brings it every time. Don't you love the soft and soothing blues in her Easter Room?

Lynn from the Vintage Nest shared some of her wonderful Easter decor and had this gorgeous blue watering can that I've been loving (lusting over) all week!

more decor from Lynn

Little Miss Maggie put together a wonderful  "diorama" display of all kinds of beautiful Spring elements; moss bunnies and florals, in her table top conservatory. You'll want to run by and see all the beautiful photos.

Donna from My Shabby Chateau may be moving at the end of the month,
but she put together an adorable Easter vignette.
(Hey Donna, I'm diggin' the bunny and baby carriage, is it old chalk?)

And Rhonda from My Blue Creek Home
shared the real essence of what our Easter Celebration is all about,
Resurrection Sunday.

I'll be partying this weekend with these gals:

Thanks everyone for coming by and linking up to Vintage Inspiration.
