Simple Inspiration...


 For me... it is usually the simple things that bring inspiration.

I loved the texture and color of this old fishing creel found at the flea market last weekend.

Filled with the last of my hydrangeas,
it hangs on an old painted door.

I find a lot of my inspiration in nature
and in simple everyday objects...
...almost always old and showing signs of use.

I guess that's why I like the flea market so much! 
:)

How about you?
 Where do you find inspiration?

It's funny that this post is about inspiration because I just did a post about a fish bronze head my husband was given that in turn inspired an art canvas.

For me it is usually nature (or music) that inspires me.

I love the creel art. I am always hanging up old crusty things on my chippy doors on the porch. Things found on the side of the road or at tag sales, and nature, too. This time of year, there's so many things to be picked up in the woods.

Beautiful photo of a gorgeous find. I mainly find inspiration in nature and simple things as well. My senses seem to be drawn to them.

Love your post today Laura. The fishing creel was an awesome find, and paired with the hydrangaes and cool texture, it's such a gorgeous shot...
I find most inspiration in nature as well,and find that at our cabin, my mind never shuts down as I'm continually inspired. The same thing happens for me when I'm near the ocean, my mind is filled with wonderful things.
I am finding lately that I'm truly stopping and noticing consistently all of the beauty surrounding me on a daily basis. So fun!
