Vintage Finds that Inspire!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Let's look at a few vintage things I found and placed on the porch.
I love old windows, don't you?  All shabbiefied and chippy.
Add an old wooden stool, painted and shabbied and then a big angel head with barb wire hair!  A little pumpkin and a stick wreath makes me happy and inspires me to create.

Shabby, chippy, peely.....that's what inspires me.

Creative uses for castaways such as barb wire and old wood.
The colors and crispness of Fall....inspires me to dream....

What inspires you????

Be sure and visit there for more vintage inspiration.

What a sweet vignette. I do love old windows (I actually have a supply of them!) but I really love that stool!

I am in love with that long, fun stem on that pumpkin! I have never seen one with a stem that long. I always have to have angels around. What a great rustic angel. Your porch looks beautiful, Sissie and really represents you! Have a lovely weekend.
