I have been without my computer for sometime and even now that it sits back on this old pine table of mine I am struggling to find the words to satisfy a post! It happens now and then...the words just don't seem to flow. The good thing is that I am finding so much to be inspired by. The simple beauty in the things around me! The wonderful good things I find shared by others.
Here are a few of my favorites!
I found this beautiful image on Pinterest.
I love ruffles but I have never seen them on a cake! Is this not the prettiest cake you have ever seen?
Our neighborhood Walmart has had the prettiest ruffled roses available. I Love taking photographs of pretty blossoms and they bring a touch of spring indoors!
(Texture from the studio collection)
The Studio Collection
A beautiful collection of textures created by the talented Kim Klassen. I had so much fun testing some of these wonderful textures for Kim. You can check them out at the Cafe'. If you have a passion for adding textures to your images- you will LOVE these! Amanda from Every Day Elements is hosting a giveaway for these lovely textures!
Baby Bird Ella
This tiny wool bird was handcrafted by Julie Collings. So cute! I think a few of these sweet birds hanging on a branch would look SO darling in a babies room. You can visit Julie's wonderful blog to get all the details about Ella.
Sweet Spring Nest
Julie sent me the link for this sweet nest. I love it! It is on my list of artful projects. I think these spring nests would be so pretty on a plate setting for Easter. You can find the tutorial to make the nests at Treasures From The Heart Gifts.
Beautiful Journal Art
I found this beautiful journal page from Shiela of Halo Hill.
"She Carried The Light"
I love this painting that I purchased from Katie Kendrick. Katie is a sweet spirit and I am so inspired by the art she teaches. She will be taking some time off her year long sabatical to teach a class in Malibu California. I can't imagine anything more wonderful than painting by the beautiful sea. To learn more about Katie's class you can read more here at Artinfusio. If you feel compelled to paint and don't know where to start, this is the class to take. Come paint with me by the sea!
Another sweet link that Julie Shared with me is from the beautiful blog of Anneke. I found this paper beauty there. The original blog it came was Idemakeriet, a lovely Scandanavian blog filled with inspiration. I love creating things from vintage papers. This little butterfly is sweet and would be so simple to make.
How wonderful is it that there are so many good things available to us that lead to inspiration and rekindle our inner spirits that help us learn and grow. I am SO thankful for this sweet gift.
