I'm joining the Inspiration Journey Linky Party at Modern Country Style. Sarah describes it as "a party where you can link up WHATEVER images have given you inspiration on your quest for the prettification of your home."
I'm inspired by beautiful white trim like in this Blue River Cottage.

I'm trying to add some trim personality to our plain builder home. So far I have a couple of walls in the kitchen started and love the results. I have plans for lots more as time permits.
I'm inspired by black Windsor chairs, Pine farmhouse tables and hutches. I love the simple rustic country feel of these pieces.

This month I shared a post about my design style and how this image helped me to better understand the elements I feel comfortable using in our home. I'm inspired by quilts, ticking, white linens, lace, leather, painted wood, white curtains, galvanized and wrought iron metals, browns and tans, blues, white and black. Rugged sturdy denim and romantic lacy cottons.
I'm also inspired by barns, cows and agriculture.

I'm also inspired by so many blogger's homes, many of whom I follow through my sidebar. I hesitated to use my favourite photos here without permission from the blog authors.

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor.
Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes. "
The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
