Let's Talk Vintage #42: Ocean City's Vintage Architecture, Beauty By the Sea

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
This is where bloggers, sellers, and lovers of vintage link up to share their vintage inspired projects, wares, collections or vintage inspiration posts.

Today I'm sharing more about our family weekend getaway, where we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Ocean City,
along the Jersey Shore.

This is the main room of the B and B
we stayed in, called Ocean City Mansion.
It had so much charm!

After having our breakfast out on the porch here,
we took a walk. It was then I really had a chance to notice the other beautiful old homes that made up this neighborhood.

In many beach resorts you'll see large hotels
or newer condos but this beachy town
 in particular, has neighborhoods
where time stands still.

I love the Victorian styles...
The turrets, the long ornate staircases.

The soft pastels...
The groomed yards
and flower accents.
Here is another B&B
and I just happened to snap the
photo while this kitty was stretching,
jumping down to greet me,
hoping to get a scratch behind
the ears.
I was happy to oblige!
This special island,
along the Jersey Shore,
is my favorite place to
spend time by the ocean.
It's got a little piece of
  vintage everywhere you go.
For more vintage inspiration,
here are this weeks' features.
There were so many I loved
I added two more than usual!
I'd love to feature them all, if I could! 
This is a great classic find by Sharon over 
at Blue Willow House. Who doesn't love
 a red plaid vintage lunch box? You should
 see how many different vignettes she
creates with it.
and Cecilia over at My Thrift Store Addiction,
reorganized her pantry ...it is so cute
and charming... I was so
impressed by her transformation!
and Adina at Simply Country Life,
showed us how to use vintage
Jello molds to make farmhouse
candle holders!
Gina over at Victorian Wannabe, shared
her latest finds and made this amazing
 looking cake. How did she  
know I love chocolate?

 And Brooke over at Creative Country Mom,
 redecorated her kitchen. This wall
has my attention with all of
its vintage goodness! Great job!
Now it's your turn:
Let's Talk Vintage!
There is no limit on
how many links you 
 can add and no other rules
besides keeping it vintage.
I love to see all of
your posts... have fun!

And here is an update on little
Cissette. She came home from the

doll hospital... just as good
as new! She is now headed
to her new home already.

Read more about our visit
 to a local doll hospital, here.

Thanks for your time, stopping
to read my blog.

Enjoy the day!

Jill, I love touring B&Bs - thanks for sharing. Thanks for hosting us all too. Love Sharon's multiple ways of styling that little plaid lunchbox. Cissette recovered very well, I see. :)

O MY!! This brought back wonderful memories of the Jersey Shore. We used to vacation in WildWood every year since I was 2 years old. Originally, we stayed in one of the old historic Hotels but it later fell to redevelopment and we had to stay in one of the newer motels which was nice as it was owned by a family who owned 3 motels and had lived there all their lives.We did used to go to Cape may for a Day trip every year. I have not been to the shore for 18 years since Joe started working for the Post Office. Our crazy schedules were the problem. I hope in 2 years when Joe retires to go to Cape May on vacation for Victorian week but it would have to be after I have my knee replacement surgery.
Thanks so much for sharing and bringing back wonderful memories!!
Thanks for hosting each week!!

I really enjoyed the photos of the old houses. I love them! I especially like the one with 2 porches - one above the other. Nice features and so glad to hear Cissette is as good as new!

I really like the porch on the first house with the round archways.
I have a round iron bed they need

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

B&B's are the best -- we always try to stay in one when we travel. That first porch is to DIE for! Oh and the one with the big striped awning is beautiful too. I always say I was born in the wrong era. Can you imagine that people actually LIVED in houses like this?! Thanks for sharing and hosting!

Sam - Raggedy Bits said...

Thank you so much for hosting and having me once again! I love all the houses that you featured! Our houses over here in Australia are so different! Yours have way more character, just beautiful!!!

Diana said...

I'm so glad you had a nice ocean vacation, Jill :) Thanks so much for hosting!

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Hi Jill,
Thanks so much for featuring my chocolate cake! I will give you a shout out in my next posting.
Your B and B stay looks delightful and those other Victorian's were wonderful to look at too!
Thanks for sharing the Jersey Shore with us.

Sharon @ Blue Willow House said...

Thank you for hosting another great party and for featuring my sweet little plaid lunch box. Your photos gave me a completely different perspective on the Jersey Shore. sb

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I could spend days soaking in the scenery and all of these gorgeous old homes. They sure don't make them like they used to. Thanks for sharing your adventure at Vintage Inspiration Party.

What a wonderful trip you took! It looks so charming there :)

I'm so glad that Cissette found a home.
