It Comes From

 nature

via


the places I've been

via


the places I'd like to explore


via


via


and 

where I prefer to dwell.  


via

via

 
via


via


via

via


But it comes mostly
 
from all of 

you.


With permission from Jade at White and Shabby Blog
 



That which shapes 

dreams


White and Shabby

White and Shabby

White and Shabby
  
also 

animates with a beat of  


life

as the origin of the word suggests -

Inspiration: 

to breathe in, to inhale.

How ironic

that something that 

gives

also has the power to

Take 

My Breath Away.  


Thank you, Jade.

Have you ever been in the room with someone who was overcome by the beauty of what they are experiencing? It as if they are transformed and by vicariously viewing it through their eyes you are too?
That is how I feel when you share your world with us, Anita.

deana sidney said...

Inspiration is what separates us from the animal kingdom. If there is a such thing as divine, then inspiration comes from that place. It changes everything when it touches us -- solves problems, advances civilization and pulls us up. Where would we be without it?

kerrie of sea cottage said...

And so much from YOU! Your words and images always inspire the depths of me. I do not have pinterest so i do not see all the lovely images floating around the internet and so yoyr are aleays fresh and new for me. Though the beauty of Jade i do see and your sharing of her photos touches my heart. I hope you are well Anita. I send you love xxo Kerrie

Martina said...

Inspiration - yes dearest Anita, that is something that comes very strongly from you too - as seen in this wonderful post! Hope you have a weekend, that is as elegant and relaxed as your pix here.

Another beautiful post Anita and so true! You describe it wonderfully. I am so glad I started blogging all those years ago. It brought me so much. I have always seen it, but the last couple of weeks I could feel it as well.

Hello dear Anita,
Your post today is dreamy. Love all the images, especially that CASTLE! I visited your friend's blog, and she is such a talented Photographer with many great ideas.

Bonjour ma belle!
How are you my darling girl? I hope you're enjoying the beautiful colors of fall and the glow of a fireplace to take the chill off. Beautiful post Anita, as always. Inspiration... it's so many things. It's the spark that flies though the air that we happen to catch in flight to dwell in our heart, then explode into creativity! I've been catching some sparks lately and having so much fun. I know you have too. We are doing find her on the pond watching the wonder of nature and watching our granddaughters grow, now 6 & 8!

Bilancia Designs said...

Lovely, as always. Your photos are so beautiful, as well.
You can imagine my reaction when I took a stroll through your ETSY ("for old time sake...") and saw a lone piece of art staring me in the face. I can't even begin to tell you how it felt to see your art "one more time". :) You know I could write volumes on this subject. Now if only I could see more of this "magic" appear...say, just for the holidays, perhaps??? :)
Keep the MAGIC coming, will you?

You were absolutely right - listening to the soothing music whilst perusing these fabulous images is a must! Thanks also for the introduction to Jade's lovely blog too.
PS I know you mentioned on my Dubai guest post over at 'You May Be Wandering' that you also loved Le Nôtre café. Well, a couple of weeks ago I was delighted to find another branch in Doha, Qatar and I enjoyed an Opéra cake there.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Yes, sweet Anita! So much has happened. Baby Z isn't completely out of the proverbial woods yet. If his lungs are clear on Friday, he can go home with Mommy. If not, 48 more hours of nicu. He is gorgeous isn't he? He is a calm baby. His lungs had fluid in them and they whisked him off to nicu and my daughter only got to see him for 30 seconds. 35 hours later she finally got to hold him and nurse him. I have seen him close up a bit and when I took that darling photo. I'm so grateful for amazing medical people; doctors, nurses, assistance that have saved him.

Yes, life is so busy. Yes, life is hard.

This post is lovely. I am not a fan of shabby chic for my own taste but I love the mood of your posts and how you capture the theme of beauty and continue with it. Thank you.

Thank you for your dear friendship. Yes, today I am taking it really slow; slept in and took a long afternoon nap, too. ♥

Red Rose Alley said...

It's funny that you asked that because someone else wanted to know if I got them at a thrift store. I bet they made replicas of the vintage elves that you remember in childhood. The first time I saw one was on a friend's blog, then I was out one day and came across this little guy and had to buy it. The bigger one I got at Bed Bath and Beyond, and the smaller one was at Hobby Lobby. Wouldn't that be nice to have a vintage one from back in the day?

I guess I'm going to decorate in white and silver with RED too. I've seen lots of turquoise and silver out there lately? Is that what you decorate in every year? I would love to see your Christmas decorations this year. White and Silver would be so lovely.......just like a white Christmas.

Have a relaxing evening, my dear Anita.

Love,
~Sheri

Evening dear one...it is almost the Weekend...and we get an extra long one! Day off tomorrow because we have had 2 nights of parent teacher interviews and Monday is Remembrance day!

I just can't wait until your sweet cards arrive....pure joy. Love to you.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Thank you Anita! Mommy will stay in the hospital as a boarder ($35/day) and then he will get another evaluative xray on Monday. His lungs are not clear but he doesn't cough. If he would cough it would be better but he hasn't ever coughed. He got amniotic fluid in his lung at birth and it is still in his lungs. Life is a miracle isn't it? And medical aid is so great these days. I had a friend in my college years whose first son died of this very thing in 1975. Medicine is amazing! I'm so grateful to all the help he has had in the hospital. Hoping he can go home on Monday, a week old by then. But if not and the hospital is the best place then so be it. I love him!

Have a restful weekend, dear friend. ♥

I will of course in the future take may more ~ just for you sweet one !

Hello dearest Anita!!!!!
How was your weekend? We are still adjusting to the loss and absence of Riley. My husband & I look at each other & can't believe he's gone after 16 and a half years!!!!! It's so sad.....
The days are slowly getting better but by no means will it ever be the same.....
We had great weekend weather wise but much colder temps are headed our way!!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!!!!!

dandelion twist said...

Beautiful images~ Chopin's Nocturne is one of my very favorite pieces.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

hi sweet friend! Yes, you are entered for sure. Even the first little comment via your phone was an entry. You are so dang cute. So are you going to do Instagram? It is the best. So much nicer than Facebook. You know how Facebook annoyingly tells you that someone else made a comment on your post or a post of a post. IG doesn't do that. It is just basic and FUN! let me know if you need help setting it up but I am sure you can figure it out (I'm assuming you have a smart phone now, right?) I have a Galaxy S III and I LOVE IT. Oh and Baby Z ...has to stay at home for this whole week. If he gets a wee bit sick - back to the hospital he must go! But he got to come home and prayerfully he will steadily improve and make a super doper recovery in no time at all. I can't put him on my blog yet per mommy's and daddy's rules so if you had IG you could see him on my IG. I can have him on my IG and they have him on their Facebook but my 1dd thinks my blog is tooo out there for yet, I guess. ♥

My breath is always taken away whilst stepping into the land of Castle, Crowns & Cottages dear Anita and to begin todays journey into your world with an image of one of my favourite fancy chickens is the cherry on the cake. I would sit in Paris with a couturier friend of mine looking at some books we that were all about these chickens and we would gasp in wonder at how each one looked when we turned the page. Its like being born into living couture, so gorgeous. Paul XX

My Father's funeral was last weekend. I ended up getting a terrible virus AND I'm so behind on my home and work obligations.. Hopefully I'll be back to blogging in a week or so. You are so kind to stay in touch. Thank you so much. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Anita.
