The Top visited links from Be Inspired

Word is getting around that Vintage Inspiration, which has recently grown into "Be Inspired" is now open to all inspiring posts, as we had such a great turnout last week. You all are being great party pals by visiting lots of the links and sharing the fun. Thanks everyone that comes over each week, I love having you!!  Here are the top visited links from last week:

Welcome to The Marketplace

Hope you're off to a great start of the week!
Last week we had a ton of great items to browse; so many fun items and I saw lots of sales as I was preparing today's party post.  Here are a few that I just had to check out:

And remember...
 Now's the time to be making those Valentine purchases.

from Itsy Bits and Pieces

from Cotton Ridge Emporium

from Whatever is Lovely

from Glass Bead Treasures

from Stuff to Treasure

Today the Sponsor Spotlight is on Lucy from
Bel Monili

As you can see Lucy has some wonderful bracelets and repurposed vintage necklaces. You'll want to run by her Etsy Shop to see all the lovelies. Thanks so much Lucy, I adore your pieces!

Time to link up your items from your Etsy Shops and Online Boutiques. You may also link up Ebay items, although you'll have to have a separate photo from your files as Ebay doesn't allow for capturing the image online. If you have a post on products you're selling that's great too, just be sure you link a way for people to purchase your items. List up to three individual items with an individual link to the item. If you have a blog it would be so nice if you could grab the above image and share it with your readers somewhere on your blog sidebar, with a link back here...and spread the word about this online marketplace!
If you're here to shop, we're so glad to have you. This link is open all week, so be sure and stop back by throughout the week to check on newly added merchandise.

 And on a side note...all you Downton Abbey fans...don't you feel like you got kicked in the gut last night? Who could have seen that coming?

so glad you came by,

I'm fickle...

when it comes to decorating that is.

A couple of weeks ago I did a post called 

Yep, I actually thought I could make it to 
Valentine's Day
with the 
look I had for Christmas...

I should have known
that wasn't going to work.
Last week I needed a change.
I thought about buying some new fabric for a tablerunner.
but in the end I just dug around in my stash
and found this wonderful 
washed out linen floral.

and the basket full of poinsettias...?
buh bye.

Back to hydrangeas.

That meant the adorable little vintage tablecloth with hearts
would have to go, too.

(moss covered letter "O", courtesy my sis)

burlap to the rescue.

and of course
the church pew 
got a needlepoint floral pillow
to "compliment" the new tablerunner.

table top vignettes were given the

and my three pitchers

replaced a silver set.
but I won't tell you where that is...
cause it's still floating around
just like that little Chippendale shelf.

The Girls asked to have their pictures taken.
you'll notice this one's trying out the new runner...

While this one is sitting on the marble pastry block. candlelight

can you see that Miss Wrigley
is smiling for the camera?

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
