BOB VILA CONTEST & Vintage Inspiration Party

I am interrupting the Vintage Inspiration Party to bring you this fun announcement:

Starting today, through the end of the month I am a contestant in a pallet project contest on the Bob Vila website. I was honored to be asked and included and would so appreciate your vote on my Pallet Potting Bench. You can vote once a day, so yes, you may be seeing this reminder a lot! Thank you so much! 

 Now on to our regularly scheduled program:
Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Party! It's THE party for lovers of all things vintage-inspired!
Vintage Home Decor

Now, it’s YOUR turn!
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.
Link Party Guidelines
- You are welcome to share anything vintage or vintage inspired. This includes yard sale finds, repurposed and upcycled creations, family heirlooms, and even vintage or vintage inspired items you have for sale. If it’s been around awhile or just looks that way…share away!! No food links please.
- Pin away, but please be sure to pin directly from the original source, not from my blog.
- Be sure to have a visible link to Beyond The Picket Fence (text link is fine) within your post.
- By linking up with the Vintage Inspiration Party you agree that your photos and links may be shared on Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media sites. You may be included in a round up to promote the party or individually, with a link back to you. We love what you share and the extra exposure is a benefit to everyone.
Let’s Get This Party Started!


  1. Thanks for the Party and good luck on the pallet project-I will go check it out!

  2. I am new here...awesome looking party!

  3. Thanks for hosting! I will vote for you ;) Blessings, Cecilia

  4. Congrats on the invitation to the pallet contest!! Voted today and will do so thru the rest of the month. Also casting lots of prayers in your direction:) You have such a gift and it blesses me to see you use it, and it gives me confidence to use mine:)

  5. That is such a good idea for a lot of us to do. That's a fine competition to be in, rewarding other forms of art and talents. I hope they've got a mechanism or two in place to not only ensure that they really get the best entries, but are able to really sift through all of them, and see what everybody's got to at least give every entries their proper levels of attention. Thanks for sharing that! More power to you!
