Inspire Me

I sat down to blog and was feeling uninspired. If you have time, please leave a link in the comments of something that makes you happy or inspires you. I will look at every single one. I promise.

    Well, I’ve been hot on the interior design trail lately as we just moved into a new house. I posted about some really great Missoni towels the other day… ::sigh::

    I’m also really loving Desire to Inspire. They’ve got some great photos lately.

    _You_ inspire me, Jordan!

    I just discovered this blog today. The little cafe in the most recent post is delicious, but the whole blog is delightful:

    Ooh, I’m also loving Jessica McDougall’s blog. She writes primarily about fashion, and it’s always very interesting.

    How about the Mad Tea {Towel} Party beginning Friday in Cincinnati…

    I just wrote about it today on my blog… it makes me homesick that I’m not in Ohio now.

    My other suggestion is getting out into nature. Find a nearby park with beautiful flowers!

    This very awesome rug inspires me.

    The photography is amazing, and makes me want to make just about everything (well. maybe not an ENTIRE wedding cake).

    I usually feel inspired by music. If you haven’t heard them, give the Avett Brothers a listen. They totally get me excited and inspired for so many things.

    wow… YOUR blog inspires me. I just wrote about my love for horse ribbons here:

    kind of like a prep school fantasy style I guess.

    I’m missing my great grandma today– she’s been gone for 9 years. But instead of feeling sad, I’m trying to figure out how to make her doughnuts. They looked just like this:

    You may have seen this before–the combination of beautiful places and happy people is so joyous (2:34 is my favorite moment).

    I don’t have a link – but I would love for you to do a post about your wedding. I am planning my own and I am always curious about other people’s weddings.

    This blog is inspirational in a very personal way (not design). It is my sister in law’s.

    She has updated it daily since she lost her 14 month old daughter in a drowning accident. Simply beautiful. And my other sister in law has a beautiful photography site:

    Hope you enjoy.

    I’m on the other side of the world from my family, so when I need to feel inspired, I check in on my sister’s blog to catch up on my niece’s latest antics. Nothing gets me going like seeing her take on the world.

    This post made me smile….look at all the inspiring comments you brought in….genius.

    Oh, and I like this free quarterly magazine….it’s inspiring for everyone, whether you have children or not.

    I kept looking back at this photo from Holly of Decor8’s new Haus Maus blog post about her kitchen dreams, Because I needed a shelf in my kitchen. We finally did it this weekend–though I don’t like my wall color nearly as much as the inspiration photo!

    Inspiration comes in many forms – this IKEA sideboard has oddly been keeping me going the past couple of days I have planned everything around it!

    I also found Abbey’s house tour completely inspiring, want to go home and purge all belongings as we speak

    Happy hunting!

    I hear you Jordan. Might it have to do with this sweltering hot weather and the smoky hazy air which all the newscasters are telling us is bad for our babies so we are stuck inside or shuffling from one air conditioned location to another? Or is that just me? Anyway, I hope you get your inspiration back…and I hope the Northern California wildfires get put out and the temperature goes down just a bit–not a lot, I like summer, but a little would be nice.

    Hi! This is a link to one of my blogs. I’ve posted pictures of photos I took from vacations – that inspires me a lot. I’ve posted pics of some of my art,too.

    I feel so inspired by your blog – it’s on my favorites to check out each day.

    Like so many other people who have commented, YOU have been inspiring to me. I started a blog a couple of months ago after being hooked on your blog for quite some time: Also, one of my favorite writers (not about design, but about “the intersection between food and life”): I think you would find her writing extremely inspirational. Especially a post like this:
