~my inspiration file~

Good morning everyone!


well, I wasn't intending on doing a post today...
but while I was working away on my
linen shoppe stuff...I came across this folder
in my pictures....and thought I'd share!
ok...one word...


yum...


now, having a stone wall like this.....
certainly adds to the yum factor.....


ooooh I'm liking these slipcovers....
how would these do in the linen shoppe?
I'd love your thoughts!


I think these pics are from the
Seed Box Antique Store....
{I'm not sure though....ooops....}



galvanized.....is good.


I know I've showed you this one before,
 but I just love it!

Oh, would you like to know the NW weather??
{really?  she's doing this again?}

it is overcast & a bit cool....I would say around 65!
it's only 10:30 am, it did this yesterday
and eventually warmed up to the mid 80's.
not so bad.....

ok..back to our regular scheduled program...


old doors are....good.


isn't this the cutest little pic?
it's got one of my all-time favs
bacopa...


can't wait to show you my new stuff...
I'll give you a hint...
{feedsacks}

pique your interest? ;)


oh my goodness....painted white wood walls...
yummmmmmmmm!!!


I'm also loving these pillows...
I'm going to attempt some round
ones for the shoppe....


antlers....do you have some yet?
I need me some....


that's it for today my friends~

I'm hoping to post tomorrow on my new designs...
see you then!


xoxo,



Shellagh

Girl, you have got me drooling all over the place right along with you. And, I'm now in a very serious redoing mood. White is so dreamy and all that shabbiness is calling my name.

Lovely post.

NanaDiana said...

Oh...what a pleasant spot to land after a long, hot day! I feel like I was cushioned in a cool, soothing room with a massage waiting just around the corner~but only after I have filled my eyes with all these lovely, lovely things. Thank you for taking the time to post inspirations that we can all love. Diana

Cindy said...

Shellagh,
I love the chippy white paint and the linen slipcovers. I so need two for my wingback chairs. And as for antlers, I don't have any yet, but Iwas at a restaurant on the edge of a beautiful lake, WAY out in the middle of nowhere and they had FOUR gorgeous antler chandeliers in their dining room! I was just blown away by them. They were gorgeous! My friends husband was telling my husband he could make me one if he killed about twelve deer. Yeah, I know that won't happen!
Hugs, Cindy S

Beautiful, beautiful images, and I love those white slipcovers. I'm a bit jealous of the weather too. I remember those days growing up by the ocean :-) Oh, how I miss overcast skies.

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Shellagh,
I'm glad you showed the kitchen island, as I guess I missed it before, I would have certainly remembered that beautiful piece! I really like the chair slipcovers, not so much antlers... I know they're vintage, but not for me. Guess people either love them or hate them, right? Lots of inspiration here, thank you!

I keep a folder~ a wish list wrapped in dreams!

Hope your day is perfect~

bj said...

I loved every single thing shown here EXCEPT...
those hands...I don't like body parts much..the praying hands..have always given me the creeps..and candles coming out the top of heads...don;t like that either..:))
but, I sure do love old doors...
