A Burst of Inspiration

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Because I'm equal parts pack-rat and insanely organized, I have an arsenal of 30+ binders archiving my favorite magazine spreads and articles. But when it comes to saving what I love from the web, things get a little messy. I've never taken to fffound or any of the other cut-and-paste web archives. Essentially, I just right-click and save my favorite pix into my downloads folder, quickly forget about them, and then stumble onto the monstrous accumulation of very cute things months later. (Which, actually, is practically better than Christmas!)

Today I thought I'd stick up a smattering of some of these saved images, with apologies to their original sources, which I don't track. (I know a bunch came from regular web haunts A Cup of Jo and Bleubird Vintage, but since I read 400+ blogs on a regular basis, chances are they've been amassed from little corners all over the Internet.)

Hope you find them as inspiring as I do.

*Note: The shot above left recently helped inspire an entire photo shoot for me on chic sweats.

i love blogs too! You may already do this but I find Google Reader extremely helpful -- you can tag articles with the pics you love and keep them super organized and they are completely searchable too!

p.s. i've got several of yours tagged!

yes i do love them too! martha stewart's website has several different how-to's for beautiful floral poufs like the ones pictured above. I've thought about trying them out for a Mother's Day brunch or something. :)
