To Be Inspired.

I’m a very visual person, so I really enjoy inspiration that I can look at and that will stimulate me, even if it’s in a small way.

I’ve been adding to my daily visual inspirations here and there, as I’ve gotten little bits of spending cash. For those of you that know me, some of these additions have been thrifted. But I’ve also really gotten into smaller, artisan prints and creations lately, and have enjoyed supporting other’s talents. It’s nice to buy something and know exactly who’s hands made it.

I just cleaned off my walls this week, and I’m excited to start putting all of these pieces up.

Thrifted Pieces // JATW

I found these at a local thrift store, and both in such good condition. Usually pieces like these are stained or some of the thread has been pulled out. The top one is an especially encouraging inspiration.

The Bee and the Sea // JATW

I’ve been following Betty of deerlittlefawn for quite some time now, and finally decided to purchase some of her gorgeous prints. It was really hard to choose, because all of her stuff is so great. I’ll definitely be back for more. If you like what you see, go grab some prints at The Bee and The Sea .

Makers Gonna Make // JATW

When I was visiting Greenville, South Carolina a few weeks back, I was finally able to visit Knack Studios and see my spirit animal Angie Thompson. She was sweet enough to give me this print by Jude Landry from The Makers Summit she attended. Sidenote: if you are EVER in or around Greenville, please go enjoy Knack Studios. You will not be disappointed.

Jesiiii print // JATW

This print speaks for itself. It’s just the most adorable thing ever. Want one? Go get it at jesiiii’s etsy page! She has gnome pillows, hand painted rings, and all kinds of handmade pieces.

Flower Tapestry // JATW

I really, REALLY like this. So much. And I don’t know why. It was a dollar at the Hospice Attic in town and it’s not even finished… I don’t think? This tapestry is perfect just the way it is.

Vintage Bohemian Platter // JATW

I mean, just look at it.

Florida Panther // JATW

Ya’ll, this is so fun to me. The frame is huge, so I just took a closeup of the middle. I’m not NOT going to buy a giant embroidered Florida Panther. Gosh.

 

This is nothing new.
