searching high and low

On a cold, wet, and gray day I set off to find some inspiration in the city I call home
This is what I found.

Why yes, yes it does.
Looking up at my local Target.

Beautifully messy paint jar display at the Anthropologie on Couch Street.
Just browsing.  This makes me want to get my paints and brushes out.

 Where do you go to get inspired?

this is real life

I started this blog out of necessity.  I started it because I missed having a creative space.  I love color, textures and being inspired and I needed somewhere to explore that.  and so here we are. I am still figuring all of this out, what it is exactly I want to put here, share here, make this place.  I just hope when people visit here they leave with a smile on their face. 

and please don't be shy. leave a comment so i know your out there.

Often times when something inspires me I feel compelled to gather other things in like colors and put them together.  What do you do when color inspires you?
