Be Inspired #129: Inspiring our personal style...

Wow, It's Friday...
Time for Be Inspired!
A big "Thankyou", to all of you who come by each week to party!
Be Inspired is growing, yay! Last week was our biggest party yet!


My older daughter is getting ready to start a major kitchen demo and renovation. Her 100 year + home will be going through a complete transformation. When I saw this photo below I saw all the elements that she's been looking for.

Leslie from Gwen Moss always has amazing thought provoking posts, and in this one she poses the question, "Does your home tell your story?" She shares wonderful images and ideas on how to make our spaces more personal.




Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique shared this precious Romantic Vintage Easter creation made from an old photo and a white washed peat pot. She has a beautiful blog that's full of shabby white wonderful-ness!




Donna, An Anglo in Quebec is in the process of giving her Dining Room an update, and she started with a pair of perfect wicker chairs, that she lightened up with paint.  I really love her fresh style mixing French with Rustic and Industrial.





Kris from Junk Chic Cottage has been filling her home with Spring Inspiration. She has an adorable mantel that makes me think of a Beatrix Potter Easter, but I just had to share this photo of white Wellies. What could be cuter for Spring?




The Master Sitting Area at Market Nine Home is full of so many elements that I love. Kristie has successfully combined grays and chocolate browns with her neutrals to create a wonderful soothing retreat. And she has a bed that's totally amazing!! I want her to come decorate my home!!



Thanks Gals!

I also want to invite you over to one of my favorite blogging gal pal's blog, Anita of Cedar Hill Ranch. She's started a new interview series, "On the Back Porch with...", and I've received the honor of this week's spot. So head over this morning, you may find out a few of my secrets!

Don't you just want to move to her ranch?


If you haven't entered the Give Away for a $30 Gift Certificate
 from Lucy at Bel Monili
you'll want to click here to enter
These are just a few of the fun pieces she creates.



And while you're out partying today,
 please hang out with my Friday Party Gals.



Time to link up your fun and inspiring posts, vintage or new....just make sure it's going to "inspire". Please have a link back to Common Ground to be featured, and remember to "Pin" photos from the original blog post, only. thanks a bunch!


xoxo,
