Sometimes I like to look about me and take stock of the things that I am most excited, motivated and inspired about - creatively that is.
Here are a few things that I am spending time with, soaking up the creative energy that it is giving me (it's better than eating chocolate, with little sleeveless sundress season coming and all)...
Small, pretty prints. I am all about these right now. I still love (and always will) nice large, flowery fabrics, but right now - little is nice.
Vintage Sari fabric I recently, happily acquired.
I am so in love with these, and my head is spinning with anticipation of what I will make.
Yum. The colors, textures and patterns are heavenly to me.
Next, vintage linen tea towels.
What more can I say?? They speak perfectly for themselves.
An Asian shop has just opened up near me, and this is one of the pretties I purchased there...
Colorful, patterned chopsticks - too lovely to be left in a drawer.
I picked up this printer's drawer at a yard sale for $1 about 2 years ago and have finally hung it up. Procrastination, thy name is me.
But better late then never.
Filled with little doodads and what-not, including My Girl's beloved Gromit, who looks like he is pondering something - like how to get off this shelf.
And off I go to see if I have the courage to cut up my pretty Sari fabric.
Hoping sparks of inspiration are finding you today.
