Every so often I like to share what has inspired me and this week, inspiration is what I have been looking for to get my mind off the news. I find creative inspiration helps to keep me optimistic about life when the world seems to be spinning out of control.
So I headed to one of my favorite sites where I always find inspiration and I was sad to see that all their old posts were no longer on the site. What was left was highly styled posts. They all had beautiful photos, but none offering me the inspiration I always came away with on my visits :-(
I am not sure why they removed all the older content, but I think it could have something to do with what I read about, here.
I am not totally immuned to this mindset, but after reading the post, I am more focused on keeping things here, in my own style. :-)
It is time for me to search for some new-to-me inspiring sites. What are your favorite sites/ blogs that you go to when you are looking for positive, creative and lifestyle inspiration?
I know you have heard the saying “Elevating the Everyday”. It can make a huge difference in your life, so adding ways to make the mundane a little more special can only help live more beautifully, right?
Since we all have to go to the supermarket, why not make it a stylish event? No more hauling home groceries in plastic bags. This will be accompanying me to the supermarket from now on.
When I attended the Southern Living Idea House a few weeks ago, I was given a copy of the cookbook, What Can I Bring? I didn’t think much about it at the time since I am not a foodie, but when I sat down to take a look earlier this week, I could not put it down.
I read it from cover to cover like a novel, which I never do with cookbooks. I am now a fan of the author, Elizabeth Heiskell. The book doesn’t come out until October 17, but if you want to take a look you can see it here—–> What Can I Bring
Color always inspires me. This is one trendy and chic way to add some personal style and color to your tote or handbag.
This is useful and I know I would use it, but it is a little pricey for my “decorative accessories” budget. I will be looking for something like it on my next visit to the thrift store.
Have you ever watched Log Cabin Kings? I am looking forward to seeing the house on the new episode on Tuesday night at 9:00. The preview of the house and the views out the windows look amazing and so different than the houses on most TV home shows.

And when I can’t find the creative inspiration I am looking for online or in books, I know where I can always find it….out in nature…right in front of me…
…like a spectacular sunset that shows up uniquely different every night. It is always awe-inspiring and keeps me focused on what is really important in life.
I hope your weekend is inspiring. Keep smiling!
