Inspiration Notebook | November 2017

Wow, it’s hard to believe that were closing in on the end of 2017.  The year has flown by and it seems like yesterday that we were celebrating the arrival of spring.

Today I’m sharing another chapter from my Inspiration Notebook with you.  I started creating my notebook in 2015 as a way to capture in pictures and words the things that are inspiring me at the moment. It’s been so fulfilling taking time each month to create a visual record of what’s going on in my life.

Let’s take a look at what’s on my mind and has me inspired for November…

Have you picked up a copy of Oprah’s new book, The Wisdom of Sundays? {affiliate link}  I’m just a few pages in and boy is it a great reminder and motivator on how to live your best life.   This is definitely a book you want to add to your Christmas list.

Speaking of living your best life, I’m going to start decorating my house for Christmas this weekend.  I’ve got some fun things planned and can’t wait to share them with you.  Plus I’m hosting the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour again this year with a group of great blogging friends .  The tour of homes kicks off on November 29th so stay tuned for loads of holiday inspiration.  And if you want to check out my Christmas decor from last year, you can see it here.

During fall and winter, one of the little things that brings me joy each morning is relaxing with a cup of tea.  I start my mornings sipping from a pretty teacup and easing into my day. (in case you were wondering, Twinings Green Tea is my favorite and this is my go to store for pretty teacups).

When it comes to my nighttime rituals, I’m striving for less time in front of the tv and more time whittling down my stack of magazines.  Theres a stack of Christmas magazines on my nightstand just waiting to be read.

Finally, now that the weather is cooler, I’m shopping for a couple of new scarves to add to my wardrobe.  I have this geometric print and this floral scarf in my shopping cart and both of them are a great price.

Well friends, that’s a brief look at the month ahead from the pages of my Inspiration Notebook.

 Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure and come back tomorrow because I’ll be sharing my 2017 Christmas decor theme.  It’s a fun one!


Inspiration Notebook | July 2017–Summertime


Hi friends. I hope everyone had a fantastic 4th and enjoyed the long weekend. I sure did!   You may have noticed I skipped out on blogging last week?  Sorry to leave you hanging but I’m juggling a lot of balls right now  and something had to take a back seat.  This week is going to be busy too but I’m working to get back to a regular blogging schedule.

The Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Show starts on Tuesday and so I’ll have lots to share about new furniture and decor in the coming weeks.  On Thursday I’ll be sharing a fun and easy DIY project, perfect for a summer hostess gift.   And my summer tablescape {sneak peek below} will be live tomorrow as part of the Summertime Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate.

Today I’ve got the latest installment of my Inspiration Notebook where I’m sharing the things I love most about summer.  I hope you enjoy and are inspired!

Inspiration Notebook–May 2016

I’ve really enjoyed pulling together images and bits of inspiration for my Inspiration Notebook.  I have to slow down a bit and take a little time to think about the month ahead…what I want to accomplish, what I want to do and what’s giving me inspiration.

I’ve got several things to celebrate this month including my brother’s birthday and my nephews graduation from college.  He’s already got a jump on his career and recently started his own business.  I’m so proud of him.  On a personal note, I’m heading into the month creatively inspired, re-energized with new design projects and looking forward to enjoying the beauty of spring!

Believe what your heart tells you when you ask, “does this spark joy?”

If you act on that intuition, you will be amazed at how things will begin to connect in your life and the dramatic changes that follow.

August 2015 Inspiration Notebook


Cheers to the weekend and hello August!

 Hard to image that 7 months of the year have flown by and that Christmas is just 4 months away!

I’m excited to welcome August in a new way.  A few days ago on Instagram, I shared my plans to create an Inspiration Notebook.  My goal for the notebook is to have it serve as a visual diary of things that I’m admiring,  projects I’m working on and ideas that have inspired me.

My notebook was inspired by the editor’s page in House Beautiful where Newell Turner, editor-in-chief creates a vision board and shares a personal note about what’s inspiring him along with highlights from the current issue of the magazine.

So as fall approaches and the last bits of summer are enjoyed, I hope you have big plans for August and I hope you enjoy my Inspiration Notebook!
