Yesterday my mom turned 50. (Happy birthday, mom!) So we spent the day together to celebrate. There was much giggling and gabbing over soup and salad... and there was, of course, antiquing. (Love antiquing!) (Is antiquing even a verb?) Pictured above are two treasures I found: a bead & leaf patterned necklace and an old postcard written in German. I loved them both.

I'd really like to know what's been inspiring you personally, lately. I am finding music very transcendent right now... especially the Amelie soundtrack. Whenever I pop that in the player, it seems like I slow down and I start to get ideas. I guess that's inspiration... but what's been doing it for you? Tell me about your goodies!
