Inspirations {February 16, 2010}

I have no couch in my apartment.
I want one that resembles THIS one, oh it’s SO beautiful!

I know I have been fairly remiss in posting on a regular basis, so I have decided to give myself a bit of a schedule. Therefore, I decree, from now on the first of the week shall be “What Inspires You” day, wherein I encourage myself and all of you to post upon your blogs images, poems, bits, and pieces of whatever has been inspiring you lately.

So for this week, here are my inspirations (I’m not sure where I got these – I cruise around the web and save images that make me happy, so apologies for not crediting!):

I saw this photo on sfgirlbybay and liked the idea so much
I made one for myself, out of
hemp cord and some thumbtacks.

I want a shabby chic chandelier SO bad, to hang in the
corner of my bedroom. There’s something so elegant yet fun about them.

cupcakes – see my Valentine’s post. ’nuff said. I’ve been
eating them for breakfast, with tea, every day.

I saw these little bulb lights at Target. They’re so charming (and affordable) – I think I want to string them across my ceiling, in my work room or in the living room, to get some extra light and style. If not, stringing them around the balcony (in all its syle-less glory) will be good too.

I love this lamp because it’s something you can easily do
yourself – lampshade + fringies +trim at the top and bottom.
I think lampshades with fringe are wonderfully Victorian.

I’m not totally sure what kind of person Avi thinks I am.
Sometimes she glares at me, and often times she’s a whole lot happier
when Mr. C comes over than when it’s just me walking through the door.
However, we have been out for wonderful walks around the marina
(where we live), and to the dog park, for the past three days,
and I think that makes her and me both very happy.

So what inspires YOU. What is in your “scrap folder” or your favorites list? What are you thinking about right now? Repost your inspirations on your blogs and leave a link in the comments so I can go see!
