Today is Inspiration Saturday over at the Boutelle Family Zoo. I find my inspiration from dozens of sources. Here are just a few.
I have an entire flickr set devoted magazine photos that inspire me.
I love these curtains! And, I do have a bit of that check on my shoe bench.
My colorful Crayons inspire me daily.
The creative spark of swaps is what got me back into crafting after many dry years.
The amazing patterns and tutorials online and my favorite things from childhood have fueled my sewing passion.
The beauty of my state continues to amaze me. This is a good thing, because the organization and money management of my state is mind numbing.
Little odd treasures remind me of my depression era grandmother and make thrifting more than just a money saver or something to blog about. These little things inspire me to live simply and to have gratitude for the abundance that I do have.
Speaking of gratitude and abundance, my church has really been a source of inspiration and light this summer. I have joined a few new committees and am meeting lots of new people. Working and living in a big city, there is so much that is below average or just meeting standards. It's inspirational to go to church and see people working to live out Christ's message of love and hope and pushing for excellence as a way to honor Him.
Looking forward with this guy. Here we are in the mountains above Ojai. Just spending time together inspires me to live life to the fullest.
What inspires you?
