Get Inspired!

As you grow up, you will have your heart broken more than once and it’s harder every time.  You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.  You’ll fight with your best friend, you’ll cry becasue time is passing too fast, and eventually you’ll lose someone you love.  So, take many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you’ve never been hurt.  Becasue every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back.

At the beginning of every new year, I like to reflect back on the year we’ve all just left in the dust.  While it’s been a productive one for me, I’d like to look to the quote on this sign for some inspiration in the year ahead.  To me, this sign is a reminder that we only get one life, and what you make of it is your choice.  Things happen, good and bad, but your reaction to those things is your own.  My New Year’s Resolution for 2012… I am going to take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like I’ve never been hurt.  For me, the year ahead brings with it a marriage, my first nephew, and helping to open a new store.  I look forward to the trials and triumphs each will bring, and will remember that each of these firsts only happen once!  Let’s make it a great one, Happy New Year!


One of our items that inspire me are these pretty bird wall plaques! I love antique, distressed things, but also like bright colors, so these are a perfect combination of the two. When coming up with a plan for a space, it can be helpful to start with an item that will inspire direction for the rest of the project; whether it’s a fabric, or piece of art, it can be a good place to start for colors and materials, and tie the whole room together!


Be honest, have integrity, work hard, have patience, be dependable, always tell the truth, laugh out loud, keep your promises, be happy, love one another, use kind words, listen to your parents, always be grateful, keep your promises, help others, do your best, try new things, smile… 

One of my favorite product’s for the new year is the “Be Honest”… Box Sign.  It’s just a reminder of how our lives can be better and happier.  This would be great in an entry way, living room or any place in your home for your family and friends to see.  It’s a conversation piece and would make anyone smile.
