Looking for Inspiration


Yes, the porch is filled with snow, but that didn't stop us from putting out the colorful fabrics,
pillows, tablecloths...anything we could find to brighten things up.
We've been moving things around and looking for inspiration to start creating beautiful new handmades....and it usually begins with fabric.



Inspiration can definately be found in these old issues of Home Companion. One of the best magazines ever, so sad it's no longer available. But the bottle carrier is a perfect storage for them....love it!




What a beautiful combination. The graphic tees, Judith's awesome frames made with vintage wallpaper and my new drawstring bags.
It is a true representation of vintage meeting modern.
It's been a good day!

I just took home a pile of withdrawn Home Companion magazines from the library a couple of weeks ago and, indeed, found some great inspiration--even from issues that were 5 years old!

I would not have even noticed the snow in the background. I was just viewing all the lovely items displayed. Did not know that Home Companion was not available anymore. It was about the only craft magazine I could find on this side of the world. I still go through old issues for inspiration. Sending warm wishes your way, :) Tammy
