What I'm Loving Wednesday

Here are some things I've been looking at this week.

As if she wasn't already one of the cutest actresses
around, she shows up with the cutest haircut too.
If I were younger, this would be my hairstyle today.
Besides looking at haircuts, I have been
reading all the way back to the beginning in
a lot of blogs that I follow.
My most recent obsession is

Quite a while back, Dream Lane painted two
craigslist chairs about the same time that I too
painted the upholstery on a chair. The only
difference is her chairs (shown above) turned
out perfectly and the setting she created with them
is highly pinned. My poor chair is still waiting
for that last coat of paint and a little wax to
make her, if not perfect, at least presentable.

Also, while you're at Dream Lane, be sure
to check out the Christmas décor she creates
each year. I truly love the Christmas balls she
created one year with old sweaters and buttons.

Another favorite blog for great inspiration:

When I saw this Fall wreath on Nell Hill's,
I knew I had to find some fun ribbon and
make this for our front door. I have the
flat basket she used as the base, but have
never been able to figure out how to use it
until now.

Like most of you, I love Fall and find it
a time to get things done that have been
hanging around far too long. Just needed
a little inspiration to get me going.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. That's a really cute hairstyle and I've always loved Keira Knightley, especially in Pride and Prejudice. I'm on my way to visit those wonderful blogs now.

    Happy Autumn!

  2. Rivercrest Cottage,
    I agree, perusing blogs is a great way to gain inspiration!!!
    Nell Hill's stores are, totally, filled with inspiration, also!!!
    Another great source for me are Antique Mall & Flea Markets!!!
    recently, I found a shop similar to the one I used to do merchandising displays and window dressing in. . .ah~h`h. . .just found my "new" favorite inspirational place!!!
    Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!!

  3. She is adorable and that haircut seriously makes me want to cut my hair! Somewhere there is an old old picture of me with really short hair...from the 60's. I will enjoy checking out those blogs. Thanks.

  4. Whoa, I'm way behind again!
    You could do that hair!
    I got mine cut last month like Jenna Elfman's short cut.
    I've had the cut before and I should have kept it!

    Love this chair idea!
    I must do it for my booth!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. that was so kind of you to mention me.. you made my day and I have been praying for an answer to whether to keep blogging..
    please consider yourself an angel.. this is so unexpected and so appreciated.
    many thanks
