fall inspiration...

Yes ~ my fall cleaning and feathering is still underway. My well planned week did not go as planned. While I did get a few things accomplished like my fall display in my booth, a few rooms deep cleaned and all the summery treasures put away I thought I would at least get my ledge finished. It is almost done and I am sure after another browse through my nest and some digging up in the attic I should be ready for the reveal on White Wednesday. This no new stuff thing I promised myself is quite a challenge. So what does a girl do when she can not shop, she browses...

and puts some of her favorite things on Etsy in a treasury... I have not figured out how to put the actual treasury in my post yet but wanted to share with you my "Fall Inspiration". Just a few favorites to give me some ideas on how to finish off my ledge. If you want to be inspired too...take a peek here. You all know how I love vintage mirrors and always scoop them up when I see them either for myself or my booth. One beauty that has been sitting in my craft room that was actually destined to be dreamy white made it's way upstairs. It replaced this one...You can see one last glimpse at a bit of the ledge how it used to look. I am glad I left the mirror as is, for now anyway...I am hoping to change up the mantel next week too. The wonderful patina on this old mirror will compliment my ledge perfectly...I think over the weekend I am going to use my gift certificate to Pottery Barn that I won in a giveaway a few months ago. I have been browsing the catalog and have got alot of inspiration from there as well. It will be a challenge not to spend over the GC amount!! Well, thank you for stopping by today and make sure you visit Debra over at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday. Whether it is a photo from a favorite blog, an idea from a catalog or a certain color on a vintage treasure you never know when a bit of inspiration will hit you. Enjoy your weekend and remember...

I so need to clean and fluff and rearrange and organize. I keep putting it off. Tomorrow I will at least get a start on it. Right now, I am catching up on blogging. Have a great weekend. :) Tammy

The past few days have been a whirlwind of moving stuff from room to room and re-organizing. I even dropped off a huge box to Goodwill. I think I finally can shop without the guilt now. Have a great weekend.

I love your inspiration. I'm not buying new things either, but trying to use what I have and also weed out some things I don't use. It is a process. We were on vacation so I haven't even started with Fall decorating yet :-) I love coming to visit here and get ideas.
Blessings,
Marcia
