  1. Wow, what a neat place!!! I need to get out and discover more and get my “eye” back and take more photographs and have an imaginary beach house because that seahorse would look beautiful and have some more fun!!! LIFE IS TOO SHORT!!!!

  2. Today my 5 year old cut out the heart shaped bowl full of cheerios from the Cheerios box and left it in drawer for me to find …. I was dropping his sister at school and he knew when I came home I would put my keys in that drawer. He inspired me to take time to appreciate the little “things” in life. Such a wise boy for 5.

  3. Oh berries!!! We are in winter here in NZ so those berries are sooooooooo cruel, giggle! I am really lucky to live in the berry capital of NZ. Each summer we have an abundance of boysenberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries at our fingertips! YUUUUUUUUMMMMMM. In winter we can also get local frozen berries at the supermarkets – so great to be able to by local year round! Nothing beats fresh though.

    What’s inspiring me today? As I am typing this, I look to my left and gaze at the most glorious autumnal colour that is still hanging on to some of my woodland garden shrubs. So so pretty!! Smiles.

  4. What I found inspiring today was this post. I love photos. I have started taking a few myself and this has inspired me to grab my camera and start taking pics. Love the post and love your blog!!!!

  5. Inspiring me today is the fact that I get to go home tonight and start to construct a wedding cake..It is a small wedding in the backyard of a friend of mine… I happy to be a part of someone’s special day!

  6. The bright sunshine and the lovely breeze that is coming through my windows…I almost never open my bedroom (or my kids bedrooms) my windows, shame on me!

  7. i need inspiration today and knew just the place i could get it! thank you for blogging and for the beautiful summertime pictures! Hugs!

  8. only you could make an unmade bed look inspiring, sis! I have now ordered a WAY too expensive camera bag, thanks to you. (I’m calling it my anniversary presie) Hope it comes before we leave for Cali!

  9. I love the image yesterday with the letters…..is there a way I could buy from you? I would love a poster of this in my daughter’s room

  10. nothing as exciting as yours, but I am going to wash my hair, put on my BEAUTIFUL bugundy velvet hat and go to the Tea Trolley with my small group for high tea!!
