My Inspiration Board

Today I decided to participate to an "Inspiration Linky Party"...! The invitation came from "DondaLee's", one of my favorite blogs! Anyone can participate, we are simply sharing what are the things that inspire us the most and pin them on a virtual inspiration board. These are some of mine:

  1. My morning Coffee. I cannot live without my caffe'latte* in the morning {*strong Italian espresso mixed with hot milk and sugar}, I've always had it.. it gives me all the energy I need and it's my moment of comfort and reflection, just me and my big mug. :)
  2. Nature, especially flowers. I'm so blessed, I live in a tiny house surrounded by a huge yard, with grass, flowers, trees, vegetables, fruit... under the big blue sky of California! I have the whole of Nature at my house! It inspires me everyday.
  3. Among the creatures of Nature..the one that I love the most is the Ladybug {or depends if she lives in England or USA}. :) I find myself, almost everyday, telling my children...especially the be nice to the pretty ladybugs. ♥ You can find ladybugs all over my yard and my shop.
  4. The color PINK and everything that is Princess looking, glittery, elegant and beautiful. 
  5. Colorful Ribbons! I can never have enough!! I like especially the silky ones.. my Grandma used to collect them.. they make me think of her, and they are just so pretty! I use them for anything..
There is many other things that give me inspiration, I guess these were the first that came in mind. It would be nice to see also what inspires you!! Just leave a link in one of the comments or go visit DondaLee's beautiful blog!! She is also a big inspiration!!

  5. I really apreciate nature, specially how we can do to recycled, reuse it or how we can give a second use different as the normal one to objects that surround us everyday.
