Weekend inspiration: The urge to create something beautiful

Wow, am I so ready for the weekend. I really hope I get a chance to do something creative and pretty this weekend, since I've been feeling a little dull lately...last weekend all I wanted to do was make something beautiful, like style something--a coffee table or a vignette in the entryway or dining room, maybe?--but I feel like my supply of pretty things and creative inspiration has run a little dry!

Know that feeling, where you just want to build or create something from nothing? It's like I'm itching to produce! If I have time for sewing, making a new dress or some pillow covers might help, but I also hope to find some new pretty things for the house if I get a chance to stop by some fave stores. Siiiiigh.

But, here are some recent pins that are keeping me going. Inspired for the weekend's creativity and hope I get to spend it around beautiful things!








Pretty things make me happy. Do you know that feeling, where you just want to be energized by creativity and beauty? How do you get out of a blah rut???

  1. My husband and I are shopping around to get our room all revamped since we just got a new bed. We finally picked a duvet from Pottery Barn and are trying to figure out what to do next!

  2. Gold & pink accents are so pretty & feminine. I'm reading a book right now called The Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman, and it's super helpful for decorating ideas - I also love that it's illustrated! I hope you've had a great weekend, Suzannah & it was great seeing you yesterday!

  3. I am LOVING that chandelier!!! I think feeling stuck in a rut is such a difficult thing to experience for a creative individual. When I experience that I usually take a walk and force myself to leave my camera behind. I always see such pretty things that I would love to photograph, but can't since I don't have my camera. Then when I'm done with my walk I itch to take photos and creativity just flows.
