What is inspiring this blogger lately?



sweet blog friend Desiree's house - decor de provence

1.
Rooms that read ethereal and relaxed
(European design so often gets it right).

2.
The ocean's majesty.

3.
Objects that stir the senses at the flea market.

4.
Fluffy dogs who love unconditionally.

5.
Words and especially scripture...
above is my life verse.

6.
Art that transports us to a place we've never been.

7.
Humor that strikes a chord.
(mine is often irreverent.)


dreamy whites

8.
Feminine objects balanced with rustic.


Olsens Anonymous

9.
Fashion purely for fun
(not for status, snobbishness, or hiding behind).


gardener and marks

10.
The comforts of home
(and especially 'romantic and soulful with an edge' design).



Glen Luchford - Prada 1997

11.
Quiet tones and natural gorgeousness of sea, sand, and sky.

12.
Books with smell-able, touch-able, tear-able
(but not terrible) pages.

13.
You.
Yes, you.
You're creative, generous, and so kind
to share your lovely.
You invite us to savor it,
and sometimes I get to add to the beauty.
In this way, we all win.
Is this naive?

Maybe.
But it takes courage to hope...
and I sooooo want to be brave.

What do you think?
Any of these inspirations move you?

I hope you'll click follow and join this lovely journey. 

Here's to finding endless inspiration everywhere.

Peace to you right where you are.

  4. ya know i had a feeling that sheep's jaw in the jar was gonna steal the show! my sons felt i had lost my mind when i brought that home excitedly, but i go with my gut, and this really spoke. the color and texture are magnificent. i also know for a fact it was important to its previous owner.

    i like WILD CHILD, Red!!!
