I find I am inspired almost every where I look these days.  Creative people and ideas are everywhere if you simply stay aware of the world around you.  Although I have been rather distracted lately by 5 beautiful children, I do find that I have the opportunity to discover a treasure from time to time.   (I actually see much more that I get to write about. )

A couple weeks ago, I joined my husband on a little road trip to experience his 20th high school reunion.  Instead of having to stay in a hotel, we had the privilege of staying in the amazing home of one of his classmates.  What a treat!  His friend and classmate is much like me in that she never received a degree in decorating or design, but boy is she talented!  (Now if we could just convince her of this truth! :))

She gave me permission to snap a few photos and I just couldn’t wait to share this idea with you!  Just look what she did with a discount mirror…

Isn’t it a cute chalkboard!  So clever!  I love the whimsical shape.  This arrangement is on the left side of the kitchen near the breakfast nook.  What a great place to keep notes or simply greet your family with a sweet message for the day.

Thanks Jill for opening up your home and making us feel so welcome.  I so enjoyed the “inspiring” weekend!
