Welcome to the Vintage Inspiration Party!
This is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered.  You can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.
vin-tage (adj.) 1.) used to describe something that is not new, but that is valued because of its good condition, attractive design, etc. 2.) used to describe something that has the best qualities or characteristics of the things made or done by a particular person, organization, etc.

Link Party Guidelines
– You are welcome to share anything vintage or vintage inspired. This includes yard sale finds, repurposed and upcycled creations, family heirlooms - including vintage Etsy & Ebay 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 Bliss Ranch within your post (text link is fine).
- 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.

Family Room Area Rug

Area rugs.

For me, those are in the same category as paint and couches.

I have trouble picking them, hate them when I get them home, and usually end up doing whatever it is at least twice and keeping one that is just "ok".

If we're talking about paint the agony mounts, and it wouldn't be out of the question for me to paint a room in the morning and by dinner it's another color that's better - but still not right.

Cedar Planked Playhouse Ceiling

What do you think of when you hear the words cedar planks?

Do you think of a cedar chest used to store treasures?

How about an aromatic closet or maybe the outside of a hot tub in the woods?

Vintage Inspiration Link Party

There's a new kid on the block, the link party block that is.

When one of the awesome hosts of the Vintage Inspiration Party found herself with just too large a serving of life on her plate, something had to go.

So she went to clear her plate and I arrived.

And I'm happy to be here.

All the instructions for what the Vintage Inspiration Party is can be found below,
 as well as the features from last week - it's a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll, or in home decorating terms, a little bit Farmhouse and a little bit Frenchy.
So read over the details, I know you've got a project that fits the bill, so link it up!

Weathered Gray Table With Fusion Mineral Paint & Giveway

There are a couple things going on in this post today.

A blog hop with projects from some awesome bloggers, a Fusion Mineral Paint giveaway for you to enter, and there is my project table that had a rough start when it entered the family.

Spoon Hooks

The other day I posted a coffee sign I made for some friends that was a combination sign and a place to hang their hat.

Or if you read that post, a place for me to hang my purse when I came over.

Served Daily: Coffee Sign

I like to make signs for my friends that serve a purpose that benefits me.

Selfish I know.

And I wanted a place to hang my coat or purse when I came over, so I made them a sign.

My Blog Critic

The Bliss Ranch blog has a new reader.

Not only is this reader a smart azz, he's a critic and comedian both, probably learned it from his parents.

The guy felt the need to send me an email pointing out some incorrect information I had written on a post last week about why the ranch and my life will be fuller this summer.

Laundry Room Utility Panel Cover

I've been working on a laundry room, all the live long day.

At least that's what it must seem like to #1 daughter who has been waiting since Christmas of 2013 for a laundry room makeover we gifted her with.
