Be Inspired #155 Hurray for September!

September is finally here and I don't have to be worried about being found out that I'm a "closet pumpkin addict" any longer...yay! I know there are a few of you out there, so no denying it. Now, we can celebrate it, instead of cropping out any accidental pumpkin shots that might unfortunately occur before September 1!! So now, let's get down to the fun of last week's party with a few great links.

Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict  has a way with French Inspired pillows. Here are her French Ticking Pillows with some colorful images that she recently made for her green Toile guest room. Thanks Debbie, for always sharing your creative process with a great tutorial.







This Distressed Gesso Mirror from Poppy at With a Dash of Color
started out with a "factory finish" that she wasn't thrilled with.
She's painted and tweaked it to become a focal point in her lovely entry way.




Rosemary from Villa Barnes has been sharing her projects as part of a new Painting Course from Farragoz Designs. It's a course that gives step by step instruction to create amazing paint finishes with an Old World feel. Here is her Clock Face project. You can see the aged and distressed patina is wonderful!




Sherry from No Minimalist Here is also participating in this course. Here is one of her Farragoz projects. If you're interested in finding out more about this course, just check in with either of these talented bloggers for more information.




Pat from Back Porch Musings has been decorating in preparation for Fall. This is her hurricane lamp that she uses throughout the seasons, which is setting on her coffee table. She has a sweet sentimental story about the vintage dog planter. If you haven't visited Pat lately, check out all her wonderful Fall decor ideas.


Carlene of Organized Clutter has been creating "junk pumpkins" lately and these are her latest, made from vintage Jello molds. A few weeks ago she came up with some adorable pumpkin people using Wilton Cake Pans and some hardware. These are such a cute idea for Halloween!






And here's a super easy recipe and tutorial
for "3 Ingredient Shortbread"


thanks gals for all the inspiration!
