We’re carving up some pumpkins for Halloween and I can’t decide which ones to mimic – these are all so inspirational.
Watching the leaves fall from the trees reminds me of how much I am drawn to branches used in decor. I found some interesting accessories online, and also some out-of-the-box uses for branches.
First, here are some dynamic images that inspire me these days.
One of the many magazines I receive every month is a subscription to Real Simple. I really can’t keep up with the magazines and catalogs that come in the post – I rarely read them cover to cover. But now and then I’ll glance at them before they end up in the recycling bin. This month, one article stuck out. The question presented by Real Simple was “What Does Home Mean to You?” You can catch the online full article right here.
From the Real Simple article, a few of my favorite responses were these:
“The sensation of peace on a cozy, rainy Sunday; the feeling of relief when you pull into the driveway after a long trip; a quiet kiss on the head of a baby asleep in my lap; and the warmth of my husband’s arms. Home has been many places for me over the years, but its comforts are defined by simple, blissful moments like these.” Sarah Bernard, Somersworth, New Hampshire
