Be Inspired #122 What Inspires You in the New Year?

Hi Everyone,
Last week we got off to a great start with the New Year.
Vintage Inspiration is now
Be Inspired Friday
where we're inviting you to link up all your inspiring posts,
vintage or new.
DIY, recipes, makeovers, inspiring ideas,
...and of course all your vintage goodies.

What inspires you?
Please share it!

Here are some great links from last week that really inspired me!

Mimi from Blue Roof Cabin  has literally performed a miracle on her Vintage Sofa ReUpholster. I'm sharing a before photo that you will hardly believe, but you need to go by and see how she accomplished the amazing transformation.

what did I tell ya?

In this post Elizabeth shares her husband's gifts this Christmas, 
at Just Following Jesus in My Real Life.
(She has a pretty great hubby!)

Susie from My Home to Yours has been busy bringing nature indoors,
with this wonderful vintage framed piece.

You'll want to pin this idea for next Christmas
 from Marsha's Creekside Creations,
using an olive bucket with vintage style letters.

Amy At All Things Home
shares her chalkboard quote on "Why we decorate".

and Suzan from Simply Vintageous
not only shared her word for 2013 she has found a way 
to inspire herself each morning with this great pallet sign.

And since Valentine's Day will be here before we know it,
I wanted to share some fun tea towels from my friend and sponsor,
Sheila at Tattered Goods.

Pastry Pretties
Handmade Flour Sack Tea Towels

and for all of us that love our bovine beauties,
Sheila has several cow designs that you'll need for your
Farmhouse Kitchen!

Hope you'll run by Sheila's Etsy Shop
Tattered Goods and browse all her great designs.

Come join in for the party today.
Please have a link within your post to be featured

and while you're partying today,
check out my other Friday Party Gal Pals.
