One of my blogging friends recently asked "where" I get my inspiration. Well, I actually get it from many sources. I've been purchasing Country Living, and Country Home it seems like forever.
Those two magazines really fed my creative side that was already in full swing since childhood. My mom was so good at letting me do whatever I wanted or needed to do in my bedroom. I really attribute my creative side to her. Maybe she just wanted to keep me busy and out of her hair, but it worked.
Another thing that really helped me to think "outside the box" was the fact that we didn't have very much growing up. Nor did Blue Eyed Husband and I, for quite a few years into our marriage. This was such a blessing that I will always be so grateful for. I had to use my imagination, and the resources around me, not money.
I am a HUGE, HUGE, lawnsale-aholic. If there were meetings, I'd attend. "Hi I'm Lisa, and I'm a Lawnsale-Aholic" I seriously get up at 5a.m. to be out the door by 6. Just ask my friends. They can and will testify. But, we get the best stuff,have sooo much fun, and see people we know and love. I always see one of my brothers that I don't usually see as much during the winter months. Plus, we are always pleasant and polite to the homes we go to, making them glad to see us. Well, mostly. Besides, we're home by 10 cleaning and spray painting all our treasures.
My Girlfriends have heard me say already that I'm anxious for lawn sales. I also informed 18 year old that on Saturday mornings, his little Toyota is mine.
It's good on gas, and has a great back for bigger items. Besides Girlfriend has a Tom-Tom, and there is no way were getting lost this season. Right Girlfriend!
These pictures are not my own. I found them on Google Image, Country Living, and Shabby Chic. Aren't the just so purdy.
