Remember the saucers project I did awhile back? The other day I think I found at least two of the teacups that went with the saucers, plus a great orange one. I found them at the same thrift store, but more than a month later. I painted up a little cutting board and epoxied them on there. This little organizer would be wonderful for tea, jewelry, office supplies, coin sorting, and let's not forget chocolates!
I also wanted to show a little of how I get some of my inspiration. I love to sit down with a magazine and force myself to find at least 5 ideas. These may be color combinations or designs, or anything really. When I see something, it may make me think of something else. I jot down ideas in a sketch book. Here are some recent things that inspired me from the current issue of Country Living magazine.
And here are some of the sketches I made. Being looking for future projects created with these inspiring ideas.
