Pretty Words -- from the heart

Beautiful Words - Beautiful Letters -- I love them both.    I love writing beautiful words that have a special meaning.   So I was happy when my BFF asked me to write her favorite saying on an out-building at her farm. 

   We printed it in a style we both loved

I enlarged it to use as a guide

Her husband gave me a level line

Next comes a  flourish of leaves (and one special flower)

.... I measured and centered the words ....

and then I started writing ......
(in between moments of holding my breath :)

from the book 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ...
the words are ...

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye ..

I think the Little Prince would be happy ....

but most importantly .... my BFF is happy
that makes ME happy !

Inspiration - when you least expect it

What inspires you to be creative?  For me, inspiration is literally EVERYWHERE!  I am always snapping pictures of people, places, and things that spark an idea I want to tuck away for future reference. 

I love this little glass topped table.... I can just see it painted - or etched - on a side table for the patio - or how about a mirror?  or maybe on tile, like the table below??

I would love to be invited to this dinner --- does it inspire you to drink another glass of wine?
 What a simple idea to create a cozy evening

Here's another variation on the same idea ---
 would you use this for a baby shower,  afternoon tea, or seaside dinner? 

Classic black and white!
What would you store in these pretty boxes....
Office/craft supplies?  Fancy Hats? Dishes or glassware? Magazines?

Another versatile piece ... I can picture it in an office keeping me organized and efficient ....
or showing off a prized collection ... or filled with stuffed animals or baby dolls ....
how about using it as a bar??

These are just a few of the pictures I've collected to inspire me -- really, it doesnt even scratch the surface! But its enough for today --- now tell me ..... what inspires you??
