Vintage Inspiration #84 Garden Inspiration

My favorite kind of Vintage Inspiration is vintage Garden goods. I'm drawn to garden related items like a backyard bunny to fresh lettuce (or just potted petunias). Give me old gardening tools, some clay pots, and some vintage seed packets and I can be happy playing for hours. So when I found out that one of Robin's new shop areas was devoted to a garden theme, my heart went pitty pat! Here are a few photos of her new shop, "The Garden District", here in Springfield. Enjoy the photo inspiration, and if you can come by the Open House this weekend, you'll get to experience it first hand.

And here's some fun posts from last week:

Fabulous French Finds from Judy at French Laundry.
Can I just say, she has some of the most lovely things I've seen.

Amber from Junkaholics Unanimous 
shared her antique booth favorite finds.
these babies are adorable, not toooo creepy...

Our gal Courtney from French Country Cottage
 has THE most amazing set of vintage Italian furniture. 
you have to go by and visit to get the details.

Cindy from Blessings by Cindy created this adorable lamp shade
made with fabric rosettes, so sweet!

Becky from Buckets of Burlap, who always knows how to create
some vintage inspiration, shares a new on line shop.

And from Sheila at Swirly Girl Dreams and Decor
she must have been reading my mind! Love all her flowering junk!

  63. When I stepped into the showroom, I felt like I was in Provence.
    The scent of lavender and the sound of running water from the antique limestone fountain along with the incredible selection of French garden antiques were really impressive. If you are looking for very large garden ornaments, French planters, etc. this is the showroom to visit. A total of 15,000 square feet of the most incredible French garden antiques, French limestone fountains, fireplace mantels and the most selective collection of planters from France with immediate availability. Each piece feels real, the atmosphere is so calming and rural. A true and unique gem to be found in West Palm Beach! Their website is
