What Inspires Me

Today I'm sharing what inspires me. Laura over at "along for the ride" shared what inspires her in the depth of winter and I thought I would join in on the fun.
In the interest of full disclosure I live in sunny southern California so I don't really have a "depth of winter" but there are plenty of things that inspire me all year long.

My reading corner is #1! This is where I spend my quiet time with the Lord and do all my reading. In the winter I get the fire place going and it's my little piece of heaven on earth.

I always need inspiration in the kitchen and these bowls do the trick. They belonged to my hubby's grandmother and I can't explain it, but I just feel more domestic when I use them. I just love the color and pattern. Thanks Gram!

I love to craft, but my favorite is scrapbooking. I am in love with paper. One piece of beautiful paper sets my heart all a flutter.

God put music in my soul and I can't get enough. Whether it is my favorite music on my Ipod, my kids playing the piano or even the classical music we listen to while doing homework. Our home is almost always filled with music.

One great find can inspire my entire wardrobe. I found these perfectly pretty shoes in Santa Barbara for $20. They are the perfect shade of red and I feel cuter when I wear them. What girl doesn't love that?!

The Lord had put many gifts into my life and I try my best to nurture them all. I am so thankful for all the wonderful blogs I've found that inspire me in everything from crafting, to parenting to biblical womanhood. What an amazing way to make new friends.

I love the dishes! My grandmother had a set in white. By the time it got passed down to me, there was only 2 pieces left, I accidentally broke one, and my hubby broke the other :(
