Wooooo Hoooo it's time to party!!! I was so worried I wasn't going to make it this morning because we went out to party last night! Again with the wine! There's a theme here LOL...and it's not even something that inspires me LOL! At any rate, I drug myself out of bed, grabbed my party hat and sparkly party shoes from the floor and am ready to go again! The 5 things that inspire me are:
1. Vintage Rhinestones!
I know that comes as a complete surprise right??? LOL! This is a pic I took of part of my work table the other day. Just seeing all those pieces laying all over the place like that, I love it! I usually start by just playing around with pieces, laying this one on top of that one, etc...
2. Clock Pieces!
Again you are not even a tiny bit surprised are you??! LOL! This is a picture of a one of the boxes I have with a collection of mainly wrist watches. Something about the different metals with all their different vintage patinas that I just love! and the thought that at one time (no pun intended there!) someone bought this watch all shinny and new and how proud of it were they?? There is something to be said about a piece's past. Same for the vintage jewelry that I repurpose. I love breathing new life into a piece of history, a part of someone else's life.
3. Marie Antoinette!
Yeah yeah I know...no shocker here! Love her extravagance! Love all the piles of fuffy-ness! The girl knew how to party!!
4. Art Books!
I started to take a picture of one of my bookcases but that really could have been shocking lol. I love books! Art books that are filled with yummy eye candy can usually inspire me like nothing else!
While I'm working, I'm always blasting out music from the computer. I love the Pandora radio stations that you can make! I love all types of music from the old 80's hair bands to Green Day, My Chemical Romance, and Pink (okay maybe that surpised you? lol) . Music can totally change my mood and inspire me!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to party! I hope you had some fun and I really hope you drop back by to party again! Or even to just say hi! Thank you Inspiration Ave for hosting such a fabulous event! xo Michele
