"Creating Vintage Charm" Launch Party!

Our living room at Christmas!
This Christmas tree is decorated in honor of my Mother & Mother~in~law. Every ornament reminds me of something about them. I set it up every year.
I am so excited to be a part of a new magazine "Creating Vintage Charm" Launch Party! Magazine creator Sonia Crouse Creating Vintage Charm has worked hard to create this beautiful magazine! With that, she is having this blog party to celebrate her first issue!

I got my magazine and love it!!!

Sonia asked us to post how we create vintage charm and what inspires us! My inspiration comes from my darling Great Grandmother Maude Rose, Grandmothers Sadie & Alberta and my Mother Gloria. They all had a love for pretty china and sweet treasures, a yard full of roses and made their house a home where all were welcomed! Everything in my home reminds me of them! Here are a few pictures of my vintage charm!

Peeking out to our front porch. Many visits start here!
The 2 wicker couches were my parents.

Just a few touches in the home.

My vintage May Flower china, like Mother had!
I LOVE to make my own laundry detergent! Recipe on my sidebar.
My little drying rack.
I love using my Mother's recipes, handed down from hers!
Stuffed Bell Peppers and...
Recipes on my sidebar!
I love to use vintage style containers.
I create in my studio everyday. Everything I make is vintage style!
I learned how to crochet 3 years ago and make dish clothes ALL the time!
Journals for my Etsy shop(s).
My dress form even loves to dress vintage!
All my flowers in my yard, are memories of my childhood.
Chipped china makes it's way into the garden beds!

My little vintage trailer is my playhouse that hits the road often! When not on the road, I love to go into ButtonWillow to relax and ponder or just take a nap.

I love everything vintage! It brings back fond memories of days gone by...
Go visit Sonia and all the others who signed up to share their
