Be Inspired Showcase and a Winner

Today I'm starting something just a little different...

I've decided that instead of just posting the top visited links from the previous week's Be Inspired, I'm going to showcase three blog posts that I feel are worthy of just a little extra attention here in the blogging kingdom. Many times the top visited links are posts of Pinterest images or other images that are not the sole "inspiration" of the linker. While these are often inspirational and are gorgeous photos, I want this space to be dedicated to a few more posts that are the creation of the blog author themselves. Believe me, I love a great home tour or Pinterest post as much as anyone, I'm just going to be sharing a little more "original" inspiration in this spot. I'm still welcoming your wonderful home tours and Pinterest posts, I'll just be showcasing links in this spot that are original to the blog author. 

And today I have three that are exceptionally inspiring!

from Vintage 541

Don't you agree?
These three posts are inspiring me for Spring!

  17. while it looks pretty, the little baskets of live plants on the back of dining chairs is a little unrealistic.

  18. Dear Debra,

    I think this is the absolutely right thing to do, because everyone can link up Pinterest photos for inspiration but in my eyes it is always the original author/artist/crafter/designer etc. who should get the credit.
    I love your picks, they are all three very inspiring and beautiful!
    Happy Thursday to you!
    xoxo~ Carola
    P.S. I'll link up my Easter idea blog post tomorrow.

  19. Three wonderful picks! I agree VERY inspiring. There's so much talent out there.

  20. Love all three! Such beauty :) I have to say that I am loving your dining room chair slips too!

  21. Thanks so much for the feature, Debra!! You're so sweet :)

  22. So inspiring and I love that they are from bloggers who've actually created these spaces. Thank you for sharing and blessings to you, Patti

  23. I agree with your new plan because it gives the original blogger the credit they deserve for their originality.

  24. The posts you featured are amazing and I had missed two out of the three at your party, so thank you so much for choosing them!

  25. You really have avery nice blog,it's the first time to be here but it won't be the last untill then keep blogging..goodluck!
