Inspirations

IMG_5443

Have you ever really thought about what inspires you? What speaks to you as soon as you see it. When you feel a connection to something? Why does this happen? Why are we so drawn to certain things. When I am out shopping or looking at p;ctures on other peoples sites there are some things that just immediately draw me in. For instance this photo above. I love the window, I love the watering can, the clay pots and the old metal box she has used as a planter. I especially love the clever way she has used wire to start her plants. Isn’t that just the neatest thing? I found it here

I love all kinds of textiles, old lace, picture found here http://dollsbybec.blogspot.com/

You can do so much with materials. Check out these flowers  I found. They would be fun to make.
