My Favorite Pin Repinned

I love this for the feeling it gives me, great colors, warm and inviting.  Love the window treatment.  Would be great in my kitchen bay windows.  nice window treatments

I pinned this picture a couple of years ago and it is one of the pins that gets repined on a regular basis.

My kitchen has a bay window, and the colors are similar.  I really liked the way this kitchen made me feel while looking at it.
It's comfortable, clean, has some warmth.  I like the round table, fresh flowers. 

I also really like the window treatments.

What's your favorite pin?

Do you use pinterest?

I love it.

You create all kinds of boards.

Last month, I had another Jockey Person to Person party.  What a great time.  I should have wrote a post about all the great clothes I got again for hosting.  It was incredible.  I'm so bummed that Jockey is closing down this division of their company.  I will be on the lookout for another product like it in the future.

Jockey Person to Person - Spring 2015 - Pleated Trench, High Low Top paired with Classic Ponte 5 Pocket Pants

Anyways, sorry I got off track.  Here's a board I created on pinterest to inspire me for the party.

I do this kind of thing a lot.  The pillows for the couch are something I'm still planning to make for my living room couch. 
FREE SHIPPING -  Set of four 18" x 18" print pillow covers, "L O V E". $68.00, via Etsy.  Going to make something similar to this.  A bit more shabby chic.
I'll keep you posted.

If you haven't signed up with pinterest yet, you might want to.  If you already are, great.  Either way, follow me, so I can find and follow you there too.  I'm always on the look out for new inspiration.

Weekend Sketching and the Movie, The Hundred-Foot Journey.

I love it when I find some time to do a little practice sketching.  This one was done using gel pens. Don't you just adore the way the ink spills out of a these pens? I'm kind of pleased with the way her eyes turned out.  A little disappointed in the ear.  Maybe I should have covered it with her hair?  Oh well, practice, practice.

This was a bible verse from a couple of weeks ago in church.  Jesus was asked by his disciples which is the most important commandment of all.
Ah, interesting question, I thought, so I wrote it down. Who knew I would be using it on some art?  The second most important commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself.  If only everyone could do this?  I wonder what our world be like?

Last night, we watched the movie "The Hundred-Foot Journey."  We all were kind of surprised that we really enjoyed it. Watching others embrace their passions is so inspiring.  Yes?
