Where do you find inspiration for your DIY and decor ideas?
I am inspired and regularly amazed at the creativity that I find daily on blogs and online in general.I thought I would share with you some of my favourite places I visit to get my daily dose of creative inspiration.
I also adore my friend Danielle’s blog Finding Silver Pennies. Her style is warm and beautiful, she is an incredible furniture painter and she has amazing taste. I think I could move into her home tomorrow!
Allison from The Golden Sycamore is another inspiring blogger. She too is a wonderful furniture painter and DIY’er and her blog is beautiful and I find myself pinning all her awesome ideas!
I love Jennifer Rizzo’s blog and was fortunate to be able to sit in on some sessions with her when I was at Haven. she taught a class on starting a creative business and it was amazing. She is super creative and inspiring.
There are so many other inspiring bloggers out there. Check out my other favourites here.
Of course I am totally in love with Pinterest. I recently realized that I had created a job for myself that requires that I use Pinterest on a daily basis. How smart am I? Ha Ha

I am still a magazine reader, I have recently downsized my collection of House and Home and Style at Home, Cottages and Bungalows etc, but I like to sit with a cup of tea and flip through my FAVOURITE magazine Country Living UK version. It is by far, my favourite “house porn”. I cannot downsize my collection. I keep them all. I have a problem. This is my fav!
Of course, I love Mother Nature’s pallet as well. When we were pondering the subtle colours we wanted to put in our little cottage in Lunenburg, I realized the colours were right there at my feet.
I am also inspired daily by the clients that walk into my shop. I love chatting with them and getting pictures from them of their before and afters – seeing the creative juices flowing and listening to them get excited about projects they are working on is very inspiring.
So where do you get your creative ideas? Do you have a favourite blog? I’d love to know!
Thanks for dropping in, I am so happy you are here!
