Timeless Vintage Inspiration...

 

For years now my Mother has been talking about one of her favorite stores, "Laurie Anna's Vintage Home," in Canton, TX. She has tried several times to get me to make a trip out there with her, but I have always passed on the offer because the store offers only vintage pieces and accessories. And while I do love vintage style, I just never thought I would find anything out there that would fit my style of mixing mostly modern with a touch of vintage. However, last week I was informed that Laurie Anna's Vintage Home was holding her first annual "Vintage Farmhouse Christmas;" and when my Mom found out, she insisted that I go with her. This time I agreed, as I am currently hard at work on the most amazing master bedroom makeover for a friend that loves ALL things vintage! I knew that at the very least I would find some amazing inspiration! Little did I know, I would be blown away by the over-the-top tablescapes and designs that I was about to encounter!

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures that I snapped (with my iPhone) while perusing through her store............

Don't you just loooove this old vintage rocking horse?! And the oversized flowers....aren't they stunning?! They are made of craft paper that she sells in her store, so I purchased a couple of rolls to try a hand at it myself! I'll let you know how that turns out :-)

If you look closely, you will see the paper chain draped on top of the shutters...like the kind you made out of red and green construction paper as a kid to count down the days until Christmas. Only these are made from old vintage book pages....I loved that idea!

I loved how these dog treats were displayed on the iron stands...and how the pine cone wreaths serve as chargers! Who would have thought?!
