Vintage Inspiration #111 Savoring Fall

Hard to imagine that Halloween is next week, and that soon all the beautiful leaves will be off the trees, cold weather will set in, and we'll be counting down the days to Christmas. I want to savor the colors and textures of Autumn just a little longer, so I'm sharing some features today that do just that.

Maria from Rusty Hinge has a way with her camera. She knows how to bring you in to her subject matter, making you feel like you can reach out and touch her subjects. Last week she shared some Fall vignettes from her home, and I wanted to share them with you. If you haven't met Maria, you'll find yourself browsing back through her blog posts and enjoying each photo.

My sweet friend Julie at Idyllhours
recounts the start of her love affair 
 (and wonderful collection of)  Bauer Bowls

A bold and dramatic Halloween Gallery Wall 
that will knock your socks off from Meeha Meeha

The collector in me fell in love with this vintage Shadowbox
 in the colors of Fall from Danielle at Blessed Serendipity

Kathleen from Faded Charm 
shares her wonderful galvanized French pitcher
filled with Rose Hips 

and if you need a delicious, but super simple Fall recipe,
 then check out these Pumpkin Muffins 
from Alison at Stuff and Nonsense...yum!

Hope you'll come link up all your Fall Fun and vintage inspiration.
And since we're celebrating Fall feel free to link up your Fall DIY posts,
recipes...and anything old or new that celebrates Fall.
Please have a link within your post to be featured.

Today's Vintage Inspiration Party is brought to you by
where you'll find an amazing variety of vintage finds.
Dee is having a Sale so be sure and check out her site.

Hope you'll join in these other great Friday Parties!

Thanks so much for joining in
 and making this party so much fun. 
Love each and every one of you!
