Be Inspired #134: April Showers

Maybe I should change that title to "April Snow Showers" instead. Good grief, it's only 35 degrees here in SW Missouri as I type this morning! I'm not the weatherman, but I'm hoping that this cold Spring means that we won't be having a full summer of 100+ temps. yuck...I hate that kind of heat. OK, so enough complaining about the weather outside, when we can enjoy all the fun of Spring inside Mary's Potting Shed. Mary always wows me with her wonderful posts. I'd like to move right into that adorable potting shed of hers!

 Here are some fun links from last week's party.
 Thanks everyone, for coming by to bring the fun.
 Remember, Be Inspired is open for all your inspiration, not just vintage.

Chalking it Up~April Showers





Rosemary from Ozma of Odds is an artistic genius in my book.
 Here, she has created a Romantic Paper Rose Sculpture.





Pretty Little Pillows and a Cake from
Ornate Splendor just scream Spring and make me think
of those wonderful lilacs that will be blooming soon!





She even made the cake to celebrate a friend's birthday.



Kim from My Domestic Bliss "colored herself happy"
with this wonderful room full of great color and pattern.
That bookcase really sets the mood.


I just love the color combo of the oranges and green-y blues.



and Julie from Tattered Tiques 
shared her oh-so-Springy flowering terrariums.





Judy from 20 North Ora 
is our Sponsor today for Be Inspired.



She has some new pocket pillows ready for Mother's Day.
Don't you love these?



Hope you'll run by Judy's Etsy Shop for some fun browsing.
Thanks Judy!

Hope you'll join in the party this week.

  8. I'm in SE Kansas so I'm feeling your pain! It's so weird to look outside and see trees covered with flowers that are covered in ice with green grass on the ground. Come on Spring (the real thing, with no freezing temps!)
    Thanks for hosting!!

  29. Oh lilacs...I can't wait. I tried 'forcing' some inside but it has not worked. Have to wait for the real bush I guess ! :) My son is in St Louis and I was frantically texting him this morning as your state has had so much crazy weather and thankfully his area just had alot of rain, not the tornadoes or anything.

    Thank you for hosting! :)
