Inspire me Monday

Hello all and welcome to the first of a series called “Inspire me Monday”. I asked my friend Sara from Sadie Olive to come on over and tell us what inspires her.

I think I met Kasey a few years back when she contacted me to do some design work for her. We hit it off great, and got along very easily. It wasn’t long before we were trading sarcastic jabs, and stroking each others egos, like old friends do. I even got to meet Kasey in person last year at Heather Bullard’s Parisian Soiree, which is a pretty big deal for me, since I can say I have only met a handful of online friends in person. (And I tend to be a bit anti-social). I consider her a true friend, and was honored to “guest post” on her blog today.

Since today is “inspiration Monday”, I wanted to talk the many things that inspire to me, (duh!) so here goes…..

I am inspired by so many different things I can’t even find a place to start. So I figured I would make a list of all the things I could think of that give me joy and inspiration in one way or another.

black and white + typography + old linens + wire baskets + muted color + swedish anitiques + barn wood + rusty keys + paris + silhouettes + vintage photographs + polaroids + puppies + botanical prints + burlap + nests + shades of gray + stripes + anthropologie + beaches + open fields + train tracks + broken fences + willow trees + birch trees + all white rooms + organized pantries + folded quilts in a white armoire + my great grandmas quilt + naked babies + scarves + meg ryan + wooden hands + vintage ledgers + bubble baths + hannah + my sisters + yoga + leather journals + rogers gardens …. I’m sure I could go on, but my mind is foggy from this awful head cold.

As for the people who inspire me…these are the top ten names on my list today…

  1. Elizabeth Maxon
  2. Joe Schmelzer
  3. Denise Bovee
  4. Anna Wolf
  5. Jenifer Altman
  6. Dan Brouillette
  7. Tracey Clark
  8. Erika Jessop
  9. Kevin Reiner
  10. Candice Olson

Many of them are amazing photographers, but there are a few designers in there as well. I made sure each name had a link so that you could take a peek and be inspired yourself.

Thank you Sara for taking the time to hop over here and let us into your world of inspiration!
