Inspirational ~

I think everyone needs a little corner or a room somewhere in their home in order to create and become inspired ~ Don't you?
I was not satisfied with my space..I didn't care for the computer desk so.....
Mr. Vintage and I went thrifting this weekend.  I had a vintage pie table and we found a hutch (I didn't even have to paint it~!).  It's perrrrrfect!

What do you think?

I LOVE the way the light comes in the window in the morning. ;-)

and in the afternoon ~

I added some of my inspirational items....

And I finally made myself an inspiration board ;-)

I am sooo happy with this space...I should be very INSPIRED..Do you have a special inspiration place?  Please tell me..... I can't wait to hear ~


  1. It looks great Marianne!
    I've been having a hard time commenting on your blog..it jumps all over. Yesterday it would not let me comment. Anyone else had this problem?
    I love that vintage scale...I've been looking
    for one!

It's SO funny that this was your post today....my computer space is U-G-L-Y!!!! A true eyesore, and I have been thinking about it for a few days now! I actually am thinking about posting a pic of the ugliness to see if anyone can come up with some good ideas....it's a weird space and I'm blank!! You did a beautiful job!!!! Yours is lovely!!!
