inspired

I joined Pinterest a couple weeks ago after hearing so many wonderful things about it all over blogland. If you aren't familiar with it, it is a place you can pretty much save all those lovely pictures you find through blogs, flickr, etsy or anywhere on the internet. You are able to categorize them so it is easy to find when you need specific inspiration. Whether it is for crafting or quilting, decorating your home, or maybe recipes you may want to try. Well to say the least it is a ton of fun and I have been so inspired by everything I've started saving to my pinterest boards!! I think my list of projects have grown to an enormous amount now!! You can find me here on pinterest. :)

Here are some pictures that are inspiring me today!!

To make this yummy radish salad...


in my someday English kitchen...

while wearing this oh so cute apron!!


I'd then serve my yummy salad in this lovely beach dining room.


After eating I'd go to my amazing sewing room...


and start a quilt inspired by these colors..


and these...


that includes some lovely vintage and vintage inspired fabrics with pretty flowers and polka dots!


the pattern would have to be flying geese!!


I might need to take a little bathroom break in this shabby chic bathroom!! ;)


After quilting I'd go enjoy the sunset on my wonderful red and aqua porch!!


Now back to reality...I can make a lovely salad for dinner, and maybe I'll go start a lovely stack to make a flying geese quilt. :)

Hope you're having a wonderful and inspiring Wednesday too!!
