Vintage Inspiration #103 All Things Home

Hi Everyone, welcome to Vintage Inspiration!

Amy at All Things Home is a true vintage girl at heart. She recently found this wonderful rusty antique cabinet at her uncle's house and brought it home to live happily on her great hand made work table.

When I saw it, I told Amy that this amazing old Diamond Dye Cabinet and my old medicine cabinet, that I recently found...

needed to get married!

don't you think they'd make a fun couple?

Amy has a way with vignettes and display, 
and her worktable is a constant evolving base for her newest "old" find.

Here's Amy's mantel, 
just look at all the wonderful vintage elements working together

Shelves full of ironstone and whites

and breadboards...LOVE them

Here, Amy displays old Ironstone plates and platters 
on the dining room table. 

If you don't know Amy then, you'll want to check out her blog, All Things Home, and say Hello. You'll be refreshed with her wonderful  "farmhouse" style. Thanks Amy!!

Here's more inspiration from last week:

I love old watering cans and this one really gets your attention.

Take a look at this great Shabby Bird Condo from 
There's even a tutorial!

Here's the long awaited finish and photos of Angie's
wonderful Kitchen Reveal at Knick of Time Interiors
(she also had the most party visits last week)

Shelia shows off her canister set taking center stage
on the hutch at Note Songs

Judy at 20 North Ora has a new blog, 
and you'll want to go by and check out her Etsy Shop, too

These two photos are from her first posts.
I'm crazy about this wonderful vintage chair she has transformed.

And also go by and say Hello to new another new blogger,
 then take a peek at her wonderful cottage decor!

Wish I could feature a dozen more of your great links from last week.
You all are such a talented bunch!

And please check out these other fun Friday parties!

Time to party, Everyone! Link up your posts from this week that have a vintage vibe. Doesn't have to be old,   but can be "vintage inspired". And just a note to new bloggers and those who don't know how to do a link back within your post, just email me. So many of you don't have a link back to Common Ground. How do people know where to come and party?...just sayin'...and PLEASE check to see if you still have word verification, it's outdated and not needed and makes it a deterrent for comments. I can barely leave a comment, sometimes it takes me multiple tries. not fun!! 

Also, you may have noticed the "Fabulous Fall Fun" image on the sidebar. Since I'm such a Fall Nut, I'd love to have you come link up all your Fall Fun starting this weekend and during these next few months. Feel free to share posts from the past if you'd like, (DIY, Decor, projects, Fall recipes, tablescapes, etc.) Up to three each week. Let's all share the inspiration this Fall!!

    the title of your blog caught my eye and when I saw your party I (almost) went a little crazy being a sucker for vintage things!
    I linked my bib necklace (vintage inspired of course) and added your button to my blog!


  46. I am so glad you featured Amy's home... she has made it so beautiful and I love her style. I've had the pleasure of meeting Amy in person and she is every bit as lovely as her home.
