Your books look promising Koralee. On my inspiration table are the gardening books by Carol Llein and Alys Fowler. Two of my favourite writers on gardening books.

Enjoy your books & the snow :-)

We started out with a huge thunderstorm (in January??) and almost warm temps. It is now very windy and has dropped 30 degrees with snow coming. I'm getting some inspiration from Pinterest...and I'm reading The Hunger Games trilogy and I'm hooked!

Blondie's Journal said...

You have some great decorating books there, Koralee! I could definitely spend a snoy day curled up with them...dreaming! I am in the middle of a "Beach Read" believe it or not! It makes me feel warm! :-)

I don't have anything on my inspiration table right now. In front of me when I sit at the computer is a collage I recently did that is my inspiration and place on this collage is a picture of me dancing with the words, I dance daily, watched or not! May you dance daily and be surrounded by delight.

Decorate by Atlanta Bartlett is always lovely to look through. And Lisa Stickley and the Liberty Book of Home Sewing are both lovely for easy craft projects. Hunker down away from the snow. C.x

The redwood forests in California are just magical! Those huge, long, straight up treestems, the ferns in between the trees, the beautiful green. I enjoyed the clip and the words said.

The ovendoor broke off completely today... It had been 'hanging on' for a while now.
So I guess some electrical-appliances-leaflets will be on my inspiration table soon. Just can't do without an oven for too long, can you?

Bye,
enjoy the snowcovered landscape,
Marian

Koralee,
It looks like you and have have very similar inspiration. I love Romantic Style and I am borrowing Romantic Prairie from my mother-in-law. Right now I have a stack of Romantic Homes Valentine's Day back issues on my nightstand...I see a pattern here-romantic-That's what inspires me!

As for new books, I think Selina Lake has a new book coming out soon called Home Spun. I have no doubt that YOU will LOVE it!

Stacey@A Sort Of Fairytale said...

hello! i have the same 3 books! well, the French General one i have is different but similar nonetheless. i really like Cabbage and Roses books (At Home With Country and Vintage Chic) as well as anything by Atlanta Bartlett (Pale and Interesting), and Cath Kidston...oh i could go on an on!
hope you had an inspired day!!

Maria said...

"Growing is Forever" is sooo beautiful, Koralee. I'm so grateful that you took us to that site to watch. I am sharing this with family tomorrow... and will find a way to weave this in a lesson at school soon. Thank you!
Hmmm on my inspiration table right now is a beautiful book that I bought for before Christmas: "Moments of Peace in the Presence of God" {morning and evening devotions} The devotions are wonderfully done, but not too long. Chris and I share them each day.
Jason gave us each a great book for Christmas, "The Valley of Vision." {a collection of puritan prayers} They are incredible and will often move me to tears.
My brother, Joe's new book came out on the first of January, "Your Playlist Can Change Your Life." I just got my copy and will start that soon!
I hope you are having a wonderful week dear ♥
Keep warm and cozy,
~Maria

Anne Marie said...

like that one book you have, Romantic Prairie Style ;)

I do actually look to Laeriss's E-MAG Deco a lot - she has great features on there - she is the writer of Heart in Provence blog...

but I do also keep magazines, and pull them out to inspire me according to the month - or the library!! they are free, so I take them home by the armfuls!

have a blessed day Koralee...
love your quote for today (Wed)

Right now I am inspired by two books... "Celtic, Viking & Anglo-Saxon Embroidery" by Jan Messent; and "The Art of Annemeike Mein". I can happily spend hours losing myself in either of them.
