Today I’m inspired by…hearts. It’s my 6th anniversary on Sunday (we chose 8/9 so it would be easy to remember!) and we will be going out on an actual adult date Saturday night because my parents offered to take T overnight. I think we’re going to see a movie…in the theater! Here are some fabulous hearts from around the web in honor of my honey:

dana kellin pink sapphire heart necklace

Dana Kellin Pink Sapphire necklace from Red Envelope Inspiration point: This necklace reminds me of some bling I have to use up on my scrapbook pages…I think the outline of a heart with some bling around it would make a great love page accent!

Calligraphic Hearts by Bird and Banner Inspiration point: I think it would be pretty cute to do some script journaling in a heart like this.

Ceramic Love Vase from Uncommon Goods Inspiration point: I’d love to just write a simple message like this and pair it with one of my favorite photos of my boys.

I Heart Guts-Keep On Pumpin’ (Urban Outfitters) Inspiration point: I put this in for two reasons…1. I think it is hilarious. 2. I love the red and teal combination!

Hearts image by lilrednecrebel06 at PhotoBucket Inspiration point: Wouldn’t it be cool to take a photo like this? Or make the heart with your hands around people or things you love?

Hip in a Hurry Heart Sticks Wall Rub-ons from Target Inspiration point: I like how these hearts are also like flowers and the colors are so girly!

Today I’m inspired by…circles. This weekend T was busy with his paper and markers, quietly drawing one circle on each page (he can also draw a mean “hot dog” and a “T”). Here are some inspiring circles from around the web:

Color Dot Magnets from Three By Three Seattle (at Fred Flare) Inspiration point: I love the colors and the different sizes! I’m off to get out my circle punches for a cute background…

Graphite Birds and Pebbles and Lemon Yellow Citrus Birds by Sugarloop on Etsy Inspiration point: I love both of these prints because of the great doodles in the “rocks.” I think it would make a great border to have some circular shapes with doodle lines in them!

C.Jere Mirror at Jonathan Adler Inspiration point: I wish I could have gotten this bigger! You’ll just have to click on the link to see it up close. I think of a circular photo with sequins, buttons, circle punches, whatever for a border.

Raindrop Mirror by Pottery Barn Inspiration point: I guess I was inspired by mirrors today, too! I liked this mirror because it reminds me of sunshine and summer. I loved the lines with the small circular elements.

Olives Print by 29 Olives Inspiration point: I like the simplicity of this design. Quite mod, don’t you think? I like how they laid out the different sized olives- I think it could work for oval shapes, circles, rectangles, frames on a wall…


Rex Ray Artwork at Jonathan Adler Inspiration point: Again, I wish this showed up bigger! Click the link! I really like the bright, bold colors in this piece. I also like the different textures that are simulated on the design.
