Visual inspiration....

I love visuals - beautiful paintings, photographs, and illustrations, etc... That's why I was so excited to discover the Driftwood Shack, a relatively new blog that is taking one letter at a time, attaching a theme/item/topic to that letter, and then posting the most beautiful visuals that correspond... (I liken her to the Sue Grafton of blogs!)...

For example, this is one of the visuals from the "A is for artwork" post...

These lavender candles are from the "C is for candles" post...

This unique table lamp is from the "D is for driftwood" post...

And I love what she writes in her About Me: "I'm miles from the sea but my favourite style is weathered boards and scruffy paint- give me blue and neutral shades with rocks and pebbles, linen and canvas, leather and jute with wood wood and more wood- wood that looks like trees, wood that has a history, so if you prefer your paint stained jeans to your new ones- relax and see just how beautiful scruffy can be..........." (copyright Driftwood Shack)

I hope you'll all pop over to the UK to visit her blog! She is only up to the letter E so far (which is for eggs, by the way), and I anxiously await each new letter/topic and the beautiful visuals that accompany each post!!

Well I think it was well worth going to the flea market just so you could get that kitty. She is darling.

I'm on my way over to read that new blog you found.

Hugs,
