Breathe {inspiration for wednesdays}

The last couple of days my brain feels like a little 3 year old who has just been given a breakfast of Lucky Charms, Pop-Tarts, and a glass of orange juice!  It is a little bouncy!!  As such, I want to let you know about a few things that are inspiring me lately....


Some of you who have read the blog for a while, know my love for both images and words.  Yes...words, words...I love words!!  And when I stumbled across this AWESOME sign made by Barn Owl Primitives, I knew I needed to share it with you!  I just ordered it to hang over the study area in our house....I believe it is going to be a challenging year in school (and therefore the tutor - aka "mom") and I thought this would be a good reminder for us all.  

Barn Owl Primitives site is full of Typography Word Art Signs that are just amazing and inspiring.  AND your walls will love them too!!
(By the way, I have no affiliation with them - other than now being a client - so I get no kickbacks for this plug!!)



Continuing the theme of WORDS....I am also quite enthralled with The Vintage Pearl.  They make custom, hand-stamped jewelery that is just beautiful!  I am really hoping to get the Spinner Ring (above) for my 40th birthday in a few days.  If you know my husband, would you remind him of this???  OK...just kidding, but do go check out their site. 
(Again, The Vintage Pearl has no idea who I am...other than I ordered a gift for a friend the other day!)


Now this one I do know personally.  Aesthetic Focus is run by a long time friend of mine.  She has some BEAUTIFUL images on her site where she tries to blend the beauty of nature and architecture through photography.  I love the above picture...it is an image of Cupid reviving Psyche.  It reminds me of my favorite book, Till We Have Faces by CS Lewis....so I let her know I wanted to order it the other day.   (It is not on her Etsy page yet, but if you check out her Facebook page you can see a few new images that should be available soon....)


Also....Red Thread Images is trying something new....{breathe} Postcards.  I am hoping to print up sets of 5 or 10 and have them available by October...a great little holiday gift, don't you think?  Anyway, I could use your help.  Would you go to the new Red Thread Images facebook page and let me know your favorite 3 images (there are 20 to choose from).  ALSO, if we get to 100 "likes", one person will win a set of 20 cards of their own....

This is a little bit of a risk for me, and I find myself nervous to put it out there....but I'd love your help if you would!!


Breathe, smile and go slowly.
