Hurray for the Red, White, and Blue

I've been trying to get the house ready for the St. Louis kids to be here this week. They have a super long, free weekend ahead. I'm so excited, they haven't been here since Christmas, and we always have such a great visit.

I wanted to put together a table centerpiece that was fresh.
Yea, I can be the queen of faux flowers,
but today I cut a few of my fresh stems from my potted plants.

So, these little sweeties are real.
Red, white, and blue...well, sort of blue.

This vintage metal milk bottle carrier
and a few bottles, fit the bill.

It really brightens the kitchen
and also adds a patriotic feel.

Just love this old Summerdale Meadows milk bottle.

Hope your week is a good one.
I'll see you back here on Thursday and Friday
with Vintage Inspiration Friday for the
 Patriotic Party

I'm also joining in on these great parties:

love to you all,

Vintage Inspiration Friday #16 Altered Christmas Bottles

I can hardly believe that it will be Christmas next week.
But we still have time to share our Vintage Inspiration for the Holidays!

I had so much fun making the altered bottles for Halloween
that I did a bunch up for Christmas.

Most of them I took to my booth space at Spring Creek,
but I've also been giving them as "mini"presents this year.

Edited for December 20ll.
I made these with vintage bottles and cut out pieces of old book pages for the background, then used graphics from Dover Publishing or the Graphics Fairy, cut them out and Mod Podge over it all. Super Simple

Here they are at Spring Creek

And a few on my kitchen windowsill holding some holly sprigs.

I'm going to start sharing a few of the entries from the previous week
 to highlight some fun and inspiring vintage ideas.
There have been so many wonderful photos and inspiration,
but I just grabbed a few.

I know sometimes we're in a hurry, but it just takes a minute,
and it let's everyone else know how to join the party.

Love and Christmas Joy to you all,

Vintage Inspiration Friday #8

OK, I know I'm a little late here...
and these bottles are something that most grade school crafters
have mastered.

But hey...
I got bit by the "crafty bug" last week,
so I made up a bunch of Halloween themed bottles
and littered them throughout my booth at Spring Creek.

This one was for my sister since she has "boys".

I'm a huge fan of 1920's children's book graphics
and old postcards.

And you KNOW how much I love me some old keys!

I'm trying to get the jump on bottles for Christmas,
a project for next week, yipee!

I'm also linking with the DIY Show Off Party
for some fabulous fall fun!

Remember, next
Vintage Inspiration Friday
the "optional" theme is setting a
 Fall or Halloween Table.

I've already seen a lot of fabulous posts about Fall tablescapes,
so if you've done one, I'd love you to link up!

( header photo is a hint of what I did for the next party)

And you know, it's ANY vintage inspiration!!

Hope you'll come by and link up to the par-tay!!


Sorry for the confusion here. It seems my computer has a mind of it's own when it comes to scheduling and publishing. The Link is open now!
