Merry Christmas to you all from every one at the Vintage Inspiration Party! I am currently lounging underneath my Christmas tree in my pj's and sipping hot chocolate. It is time to enjoy some relaxed time with friends and family and nothing is more relaxing than to watch other people work So I had great fun browsing the linkups from last weeks Vintage Inspiration Party and select my favorites. Before I go on to share them there is one special announcement I'd like to make.
Next week is the last Vintage Inspiration Party of the year and it will be a special one! We will have a special linkup where you can share your absolute best, most inspired, favorite Vintage project of the year. So go dig in your archives to see what you finished this year and link up the best of the best at next weeks party! But first there is this week's party!
So go make yourself a hot cocoa too and marvel at the hard work of some talented ladies. At the Vintage Inspiration Party, your links will show up on 4 different blogs!

This is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered, but you can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.

A repurpose of a repurpose. The bedsprings were made into a Christmas tree and then Cecilia from My Thriftstore Addiction refashioned it into this lovely ornament tree.
This lovely Noel sign gives you a glimpse of a lovely Christmas home tour. Visit Old Things New to see this lovely house decorated for the holidays.
If you have been around you know I just love doilies. So how could I resist featuring this lovely doily tree skirt JunkinJane made. These shabby chic hangers for the kitchen are a wonderful DIY project by the talented Biljana from Croatia. Prodigal pieces takes us on a tour of her handmade junk style Christmas decorations. I had a hard time picking out my favorite to feature here, but these upscaled ice-skates stole my heart. Laurel from Chipping with Charm made this awesome crate kitchen light. And then she decorated it for Christmas. Must see, people, must see! Diana shares her holiday home. And just look at this vintage door decor: I love those vintage skis with the wreath. There is so much beauty inside too!
She had me at Vide Grenier. Let's go take a little tour in France shall we? Brocante Treasures takes us with her when she goes thrift shopping in a charming French village. Makes me long for summer and my own vintage treasure hunts. Carlene from Organized Clutter did it again! I love this Christmas ornament that started life as a very ordinary drawer pull. Great vision and perfect execution! If you were featured here today, feel free to show off this remarkable achievement
Now let's get this party going. If you want to join and link up your finds and vintage/ upcycled projects go right ahead. But take a moment to browse the rules first.
