Vintage Inspiration # 97 Fiona and Twig

We've all been patiently waiting for these Farmhouse Photos from Anne at Fiona and Twig. Anne and her husband James moved into their turn-of-the-century farmhouse in Fredericksburg, Texas last year, and now we're finally getting to see their wonderfully decorated spaces. 

These are glimpses of her Living Room 
and her gorgeous Carol Hicks Bolton Sofa,
while her gallery wall of mirrors is still a work in progress.

Anne proves that her photography and stylist skills
also represent her beautiful take on vintage living.

If you don't know Anne,
 then you're missing a sweet, talented, and beautiful lady.
I can say that 'cause she just happens to be my dear friend.

See her wonderful blog and get to know her better at Fiona and Twig,
where she is having a Give Away going on right now.

and MORE great links from last week!

Bringing the inside-outside, Karrie used burlap to make curtains in
Decorating the Milk House with the Summer Kitchen Girls.

Karen at Redoux took a ho-hum mission styled cabinet
and transformed it into French Country fabulousness.

Danielle from Blessed Serendipity created this ruffled paradise
"Anthropologie Inspired" Quilt from vintage bed sheets.

has found a creative way to use her stash of porch pillars;
 this wonderful bird retreat.

And I fell in love with this wonderful "bookpage" inspiration board
 from Becky at Timewashed. 
(She even shares a tutorial)

Thanks everyone for coming by each week to link up all your
wonderful Vintage Inspiration.
Remember it's
"anything vintage or vintage inspired"
