~ Inspiration ~

Hi friends I hope you are having a wonderful week so far
I just wanted to share with you some photos of my inspiration board I put in my home office/guest room yesterday.

I wanted a very large corkboard but didn't want to spend alot (usually $30 and up for this size) so I found one at Goodwill ($3.99) and spray painted it white.
I added some of my favorite french finds, the french enamel T (my husband's initial),lavender,antique french monogram pages,clippings from favorite magazines, inspiration photos etc.
It's a great place to keep little ephemera, cards and photos from time to time instead of storing them away

And always so nice to have fresh flowers and candles in your home office/guest room
I purchased these beautiful flowers at Trader Joes this morning

My inspiration board is still a little bare but I'm sure I will fill it up soon enough

You can see a favorite photo of my little Claire

I love antique french ephemera
You can find alot of it on Etsy

Well that's my inspiration board so far~ I'll share more of it with you as it comes along
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend friends! :)

* I also want to welcome my newest sponsors: 



* THANK YOU for all of your sweet comments on my Romantic Homes feature *

Looks great! I love mine, but it is a little on the small side because they do fill up fast. I love this little corner you have made for yourself, adorable.
