Today is my first Postcard Friendship Friday hosted by the lovely Marie. She always shares the most wonderful images.
I have always wanted to join in but I am usually late for the party. (Story of my life) Well, today I am just squeaking in at the last minute with a wonderful image of my beloved Queen City. "The Queen of the west, in her garlands dressed, on the banks of the beautiful river." H.W. Longfellow
Now on to another inspiration. My dear Bella friend Sandy of Sew Revived hosts a library night each Tuesday with a list of the holds she has picked up that day. I always find something to put on order at my library. This has got to be one of her all time best picks. I am probably the last one to know about this book and it's author. Have you seen The Find by Stan Williams?
Talk about inspiration! I could spend an hour on each page thinking up ways to arrange my furniture or new ways to alter it. Thrifty and sophisticated.
Gah! I love this dining spot. It is just the feel I am going for in our lower level (read fancy word for basement). Then imagine my delight when I also found out he has not one but two blogs. The main one being The Elegant Thrifter. Absolutely loaded with inspiration. I am sure I am the last one to know, but seriously, if you haven't visited and love thrifting like I do....well, nuff said. Plus, he does these crazy, little retro handbag gifts on his other blog, Hooch Bags, that will just kill you.
Are you still here? Go...go...!
Have a friendly Friday, P.
