Vanessa at Southern In My Heart asked if I would mind if she featured
So, today, Vanessa is hosting Inspiration Fridays where we all can post what we found that inspired us this week. Anything. Posts about scripture, posts about decorating, pictures posts, it doesn't matter. What matters is that YOU were inspired by it. And bless her ever-lovin heart, she was inspired by my front door re-do. Now i'm embarrassed that I didn't do MORE. It's a project half completed - it needs it needs it needs... BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER, i'm on cloud 9 feeling all Sally Field at the Oscars.
THANK YOU VANESSA.
So, let me tell you what inspired me this week. It came from 2 different blogs and it was all about the kitchen in both.
First...from A Dash Of Humble Pie. This is Lissa's kitchen.
Yea. I know. Right?? I think I have gone back to her blog and stared at this kitchen no less than 100 times. It's the muted, soft colors yet the crispness of it that just draws me in. I know, it's a dichotomy - that pale versus crisp thing. Whatever, it works. I love how it feels so very Martha but a lot warmer. (Sorry Martha. Still love ya. Promise.) And i have been searching high and low for a similar candle holder/vase. You guys, i have kitchen envy.
Then there's Ashli's kitchen. You can see more at her blog Maillardville Manor
Are you dying laughing at me right now? I know what you're thinking. DUH, blondie, it's almost the same exact look. Yea, i know. But i can't help it. I love the white cabinets, the color of the counters - and once again - IT'S SO CRISP. And again, still very warm. And aren't you just dying over that lemon tree on her counter? I know Lissa would :) She has an entire post about having her own lemon tree.
And this, sweet girls, it what inspired me this week to keep moving forward on all of my kitchen dreams.
