As we have officially bought a house *happy dance*, what I thought was busy is only going to get busier! Our possession date is March 27...which means we've got a whoppin' 29 days to get 'er done!!! I can't wait to share the new house tour with you in a month's time(!).
In the meantime, as I've been a little bit caught up with the purchase of our home, my creative space has been a little lack. I feel my thoughts are much like the clouds & blue sky in this picture - potential for substance is there, yet this mystery of a void exists between connecting the subjects, leaving a feeling of being unfinished, almost dangling mid-air.
Usually, when I get writer's block, just need some fresh inspiration or require some gelling to bring my thoughts together , I read and look at other people' "stuff"(blogs, books, art, houses, pictures...you name it!). These are a few new places I have been visiting lately:
Rob Bell - a collection of unique randoms.
I've really appreciated this guy's perspective and his ultimate love for God. He's written a few books, pastored a church, made videos...and just starting a few weeks ago, he's been posting daily(ish) tumblr style blog posts. Music, books, mini sermons, a bit of everything.
Amanda Muse - yummymummy vlogger.
This gal is a Canadian girl living with her family in Malaysia. She vlogs and shares, well pretty much everything of interest/delight to her. I heard about her through a mutual friend (who lived in the same building with her in Malaysia) and now I subscribe to her weekly posts. Worth checking out at least.
herwelshness - a good instagram follow.
She pairs her pictures with some of the coolest quotes. Ones like, "I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know with a white quilt: and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." ~ Lewis Carroll
Daily Dishonesties - quirky bits.
This artist has put together a few pages of "timeless white lies" that we tell ourselves and created them into creative signs. The things we think to ourselves sometimes...
Pastry Affair - talk about a food montage.
I'm digging the photography and the recipes over on this site - the pictures are so becoming and the recipes actually seem do-able. And hello? Who wouldn't love some bruleed grapefruit?!?
The Doctors Closet - vancouver lifestyle blog.
This mama-to-be shares a little bit of everything in her space - fashion, home decor, health, shopping, etc. She's also got a cute line of jewelry.
A Beautiful Mess - an always something interesting blog.
The title says it all...finding the beauty in just about anything! DIY, tours, recipes, documenting, the home, there's a little bit of everything over here for the eclectic heart.
