What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me!
Ever create a recipe you fall heads-over-heels in love with?
My husband and I have been experimenting with pumpkin recipes.
My favorite? This Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake!
It’s heavenly! It’s divine! It’s comfort on a plate!
Today’s the Perfect Day to surprise a friend with a
Gift and a handcrafted card!
Happy 1st Birthday to Children’s Book Publisher Graham Blanchard!
To celebrate the occasion, we’re hosting a Worldwide Giveaway
Of their new Learn, Absorb & Praise Classic Collection Gift Set –
Perfect for gift-giving!
This is just one of several fabulous opportunities we’re bringing you!

Peggy’s post on Transformation truly resonated with me this week.
I like to think I am like this, a work in progress.
Through time, may my life be transformed more and more
Such that all areas are in good order and ready for any scrutiny!
As always, I am inspired by her faith-based artwork
And by the ever-changing tapestry of her creative workspace!
One of my favorite decorating posts this week was
Kristy’s stunning Coastal Aqua and Orange Makeover for Fall!
Her color choices for her coastal cottage are some of the freshest I’ve seen!
Be sure to visit her blog – you won’t want to miss a single photo!
Another unique treasure I uncovered this week was
Michelle’s Shabby Chic Wreath!
It’s unlike any other wreath I’ve seen before
And it’s absolutely stunning!
It’s hard to believe that Olga is just learning to paint –
But this is just one of the watercolors Olga created
As a beginning watercolor student!
Stop by her site to see her other creations!
Could you use a little more JOY in your life?
June is writing a 31-day series on JOY!
All degrees of JOY reside in the heart…
JOY can stand in the face of evil.
To bring more JOY into your life,
Be sure to follow June’s series!
This week, Shari created an amazing Au Gratin Potato dish
That will make the mouth of any potato and cheese lover water!
Normally I’d show you the finished recipe but –
When I went to investigate –
I was blown away by the artistry of Shari’s potato photograph!
Be sure to visit Shari to view the entire dish (with photos!)
God has a plan for each of our lives –
Though sometimes, it’s hard to see when we’re facing
Difficult circumstances, crisis, and loss.
If you’re in a place where you’re struggling with the “why’s” of life,
Perhaps Rina’s article can help.
I invite you to stop by and explore her inspirational site!
Music To Inspire You
Welcome to Music Moves Me!
This week we’re invited to share a song of our choice!
This is one of my favorites.
Talent is timeless.
