My Little Blue Books ~

For years I have had these 2 notebooks that I use to file My Inspiration photos

not sure if you can see,but I started this smaller book
back in 1995 ~
Most of the clippings probably date from the 90's
I have many times gone thru & weeded out the ones that no
longer Inspire me & one day, I'll get around to all the piles
of magazines hanging around & add to these pages...

I find when space is limited, cutting out the pages
and keeping just a small pic, sure helps
to keep down the clutter, then just toss the magazine
{of course it's recycled}

The larger book was given to me as a Christmas Gift from
a former friend it's titled
"Cheryl's Magical Inspiration Book"
what a fun & unique gift years ago
that I'll continue to Treasure
I Love that White house, would love to be sitting cocktails on
that Beautiful porch

Creative Ideas ~
if anyone out in Blog Land recognizes any of the Photos,
let me know, I would Love to give Credit & say Thanks for the

I have Loved that Glossy White Table for Years
but when I decided to paint mine,
I went for a distressed Blue
sorry about the flash, but isn't that Red Home

one day, I'm going to paint my
cabinet in the studio like the blue one...
Love it with the white interior
Love that door

make sure you stop by & see all the
Fabulous Inspirational posts

See you next Friday for
the Fall Porch Party



  1. I have a file but I like the book idea.......it's easier to see and store. Think you'll ever run out of ideas. Nope, it's time we need more of, lol!

  2. If I had an inspiration book, it would have pictures just like that....they are all beautiful and would love to have any of them!

  3. great to have idea books, I just have stacks of magazines and books with sticky tabs..and I can never find what I want....imagine that!

  4. I have an inspiration book too. They keep filling up and I never get that new house with that great porch!!! Your photos are gorgoeus, I think I need to rummage through my books again.

  5. That is a great idea! I think I might have to try that. Have a great weekend....Julian

  6. I like your book idea.
    thanks for sharing it

  7. I have a couple of the pictures you have! too funny. It's nice to sit for a while and dream, isn't it?

  8. I KNEW I wasn't the only one out there with these books of inspiration. You definitely have some inspiring photos in them. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Have a great weekend,
    ~ Jo :)

  9. I have books too...different ones for different categories...bedrooms, kitchens and what not. I find it hard to keep up with though. Don't you feel like you could look through them over and over? :)

  10. Cheryl, what a great post!!! You're really inspiring me to take some time to weed thru my old mags and pick out the good stuff to save some space. You've done a neat job on organization. And love the "house" photos!
    Thanks so much for linking up and helping me out!

  11. I need to start keeping an inspiration journal! Not only is a great way to organize ideas but also to see how your style and interests have evolved over the years. I love yours!!!
