Got Inspiration?

Where do you find inspiration when the well is running dry? I find it everywhere! It is a matter of training your brain to look for it. Here are some things around my house that might inspire me:
a rug,

a favorite skirt,

a fake daisy (the only fake plant I have).

Your blogs are also a major source of inspiration. Before I head out to my garage most days, I check out some of your blogs for some brain stimulation. Sara's Art House is one of my favorites. Her paintings and colors make me smile. I don't copy, I don't think, " I am going to paint something just like she did," I just look and appreciate the creativity. It jump starts my creativity. So, if you are not already a fan of Sara's, check her out today. And thanks for the inspiration!


  1. You are so sweet! I am honored to be an inspiration! I am like you - I look around the house and see things and think - oooh I want to incorporate that into a painting.

    I am inspired by your swirls that you do. Keep up the great work!

  2. My inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone. Sometimes it comes to me suddenly and then not for days...but HE sends me what I need. Thanks so much for your blog..I look forward to reading it every week...hugs rozzi

  3. I get inspiration from the strangest places...see my blog for my sources! Stopping by from SITS!

  4. In decorating, I always begin with one thing I adore. Sometimes it's just an accessory. I found wall paper that I thought was beautiful and it became the inspiration for my master bath.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
