Vintage Inspiration # 112 It's November!

Hard to believe that it's now NovemberTime to make the transition from Fall into Winter. My favorite month, October, just raced by, but I enjoyed it. And now, even though the calender still says Fall, the leaves are coming down, we've had numerous frosts, and a warm fire brings on thoughts of Thanksgiving and Christmas. So to get started, I want to share a photo from my file, a wreath from Country Home magazine from November 2006.

Are you ready?
 I am!!

You may have noticed I didn't get a post out of the top three links from last week. My best laid plan fell by the wayside. I had a marathon two days of changing out my antique mall space at Relics for the Christmas Open House starting today. Out went the skeleton, sunflowers, leaves, and all things orange, and in came  red, the Holly, and Christmas. This weekend and next are the two weekends of Christmas Open House blitzes for all the shops in Ozark and Springfield. So here are the top three links from last week, with a few extra fun ones combined.

shared photos of her wonderful Farmhouse Kitchen.

Carlene at Organized Clutter gave us a tour of her
Vintage Laundry Room full of great collectibles.

Andrea from Keeping it Cozy shared her magazine worthy photos
of her Fall Dining Room. 

We enjoyed a walk in the woods with Sylvia, her son, and dog.
Gorgeous photos, I felt like I was there.

    I'm with you loving the month of October this is the month my daughter Hannah was born far to many years ago now:)
    Moving onto November brings blessings of Harvest and family, then winters frost December is all the beauty of White Christmas, and so looking forward to holiday wreaths, the smell of pine, and warming by a winters fire looking forward to the sounds of bells ringing in Christmas.

    I so remember your last years holiday decor where your home was filled with vignettes of a Joyeux Noel a beauty to behold. I am looking forward to all is calm over here this Winters season :)

    Keep inspiring
    Blessings and hands that touch you with health
