Be Inspired #123: January Fun

Hi Everyone, what kind of fun is going on in your life this week? I'm still in the "trying to declutter" frame of mind, looking at problem spots and seeing what I can clean up and change out to make things less visually messy. Do you ever feel like "stuff" might take over your life? Well for me, part of this is checking out what you all are doing out there, and seeing your projects and decorating ideas for the new year. Here are a few features from last week that I really enjoyed.

Rita's new slipcovered thrift store chairs
I. LOVE. these. chairs!


Anne from Fiona and Twig shares her photo shoot 
and magazine feature in Flea Market Style 
of the Funky Junk Sister's space from Junk Salvation.


Jan from A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson
takes us on a tour of her wonderfully snowy winter garden



Cathy from One Creatvie Couple has another gorgeous chair that she totally transformed with paint, you'll want to check out the tutorial; her painting talent is just incredible!



and Linda from White Weathered Hutch made her grand daughters mittens with yarn from a visit to the alpaca farm. Cute post about alpacas and curly hair!


and I think you'll want to check out some of the fun things
 that will be great for Valentine's Day from the gals at 

Sweet Magnolias Farm









run by and check out the shop when you have a minute,
You'll find some fun items.
Thanks gals!

Time to link up all your inspiring posts. 
Be Inspired is now open for all posts, vintage  and new.
Please have a link back to this blog to be featured.

  20. Hi my sweet friend. Thank you so much for the feature! Such a nice surprise. Oh my gosh, I love that first chair! Love Cathy's too, but that red and white one, oh my! I am in the decluttering mood too. Trying to de junk and put out Valentines at the same time. I have way too much Valentines decor. I really need to downsize. Just have a hard time parting with it. lol! Thanks for the fun new party!
