Inspiration ~ Colors

There are many things that inspire me.  Friends, movies, Pinterest, books.  As I am sure it the the same with most of you.  Well in lieu of my new design, I thought I would do a week of what inspires me.  Today we are starting with colors.  Thank you, Pinterest, for providing all these beautiful images I wouldn't have been able to find on my own.  I love the internet.


As you might have guessed, most things French are inspiring to me.  I think France is a beautiful wonderful country and more specifically that Paris is a magical place.  I thought the French items above were just to die for and I got a lot of the color inspiration for the new design from this.


I loved these colors together.  So I used them.  Yep, you might think they are familiar and they are.  I used them mostly in the new design.  Love it!

This card is to die for. I love green and I think the pink behind it and the little pink pearls are beautiful.

I am so inspired by floral arrangements and more importantly the designers that put them together.  It takes a very creative mind to dream up something beautiful and arrange it together to create a bouquet.  I know I couldn't do it.

I would have to say these colors are some of my favorites.  I love orange and teal together, so beautiful!  In fact, I loved them so much that they were our wedding colors!  The pictures below looks a little bit like what we had, but much much cuter!  Where was Pinterst 4 years ago??

I love theses jars.  As a matter of fact, I have seen some tutorials on how to create beautiful mason jars by using modge podge glue and a little drop of color.  I must try this!

These are my color inspirations for today.  What do you think?  What colors inspire you to create something beautiful?

I love those soft colors. I once had peach and blue everywhere. I have gotten away from the blue but peach remains in my heart (and life) forever.
