Inspire me...

When I'm feeling uninspired I like to wander through our local thrift store with 5 bucks in my pocket and see what treasures I can find. There's really nothing better than a funky little chotchkie to get me excited and perk my creativity.

I just found these mushroom salt & pepper shakers this morning. Something about them just makes me want to play around with 70's color combination's.



Doesn't this just make you want to play around with cute little forest animal stamps and embellishments?!



Mirrors that I've found at thrift and discount stores and painted.



I found every single one of these pictures at a thrift store and every single one evokes emotion and creativity for me. I painted each and every one of them and my poor husband hung them all on the wall - some of them more than once as I wanted to play around a bit with placement. Have I mentioned I have the most amazing patient and supportive husband in the world? Because I do.
