What Inspires You?

I'm sure if your an artist or craftsperson like me....you get that age old question asked almost everytime somebody new sees your work. You know the one ...... "Where do you get your inspiration from? "

Well, I thought I would share some of the things that I get inspiration from .....things I actually keep & display in my studio while I work.
My Inspiration board of course ;) ... I also have an inspiration scrapbook too.


I love vintage dolly & childrens clothes.....vintage chipped wood frames....


My obsessive love for vintage circus & old toy colors ......


Love vintage dolls & the shabby colors.............




Antique bears & more dolls..........................



Vintage Suitcases...I have all these in my studio, plus I have 8 more in my bedroom stacked 4 on each side of my bed for nightstands...very cool!

And of course, my just as obsessive love for old doll trunks......ack!



These are just some of the things that inspire me.......what inspires you?

I am inspired by you...tee hee...I love rusty things with chippy paint. Antique crazy quilts with tons of embroidery. Vintage fabrics make me go weak in the knees and I love tiny rose Montees and old buttons. High top baby shoes...I could write a book on all that inspires me

One thing is for sure wherever your inspiration comes from the outcome reaches into ones heart and pulls at the strings... each of your creations is timeless.
