Vintage Inspiration # 106 Cedar Hill Ranch

Hi Everyone, time for some Vintage Inspiration

Do you remember this wonderful Ironing Board Buffet that was all over blogland this Spring? It was one of the photos from Anita's fab-u-lous, "Wildflower Party at the Ranch". 

And speaking of "ranches" here it is, Anita's wonderful Ranch Home, "deep in the heart of Texas". Surrounded by acres of pasture, and glorious bluebonnets and Spring wildflowers, this girl knows how to bring some French flair to the Prairie. Anita calls it "Texas living with a French Accent".

A lot of their family time and entertaining are out here on her amazing and spacious country front porch.

Anita has quite the ability to create wonderful spaces that make you want to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views. Sewing and styling this heavenly daybed, you'd have a hard time making me leave, Anita!

Who wouldn't want to just live out here?

More linens, that she has created herself,
 this time in the Master Bedroom.

And here is her latest sewing project; Anita slipcovered all her living room furniture, in this wonderful yummy French linen. Then used antique grain sacks as complimentary cushions...perfect!

You'll want to see the "befores" here.

and just take a peek at this flirty ottoman,
 don't you love the ruffle?

Now, if only looked this good from behind!

If you don't know Anita, she's a sweetheart
 and one of the 4 Talented Texas Gals
behind the link party "Cowgirl Up".
Run by and say Hi, then put your feet up on that great porch!

Here's more great inspiration from last week!

Rhonda created a wonderful vignette atop her open bookcase
with this Cotton Pickin' Basket for Fall 

Mary Alice from Chateau-Chic,
 scored a wonderful French Washstand from the flea.
I love how she has it "dressed up".

Sherry shared her potato casserole from
Depression Era Cooking at the Charm of Home

Melissa has her Foyer decked out for Fall
 from Daisy Mae Belle
(LOVE this old metal gate!!)

Mary from Where the Boat Is,
 has decorated her Potting Shed for Fall 
with a wonderful nesting theme.

And you'll love seeing all the adorably fashionable
"Hercrows" from
Dru at Country Farmhouse

Hope you'll join in today for the party. 
"Anything vintage or vintage inspired"

And remember, all this Fall you're welcome to link up some of your past Fall posts, anything to do with decor, recipes, DIY. Whatever blasts from the past that are Fall related. (up to 3 links per week) Please have a link back within your post to be featured.

 I also want to remind you all that I have a great party going each Monday, that is for linking up your Etsy Shop and Online Boutique items. Hope that if you are a seller that you'll come by to this link up that's open all week, then come browse the wonderful items that are listed. So it's not just for sellers, but for all of you out there that love to shop...and who doesn't love to shop?
