blog it forward, baby

it's my turn to share with you what inspires me!
thanks to eklektick for the intro and please be sure to check out
evenstar-art and her blog it forward post tomorrow.
thanks to victoria at sfgirlbybay for her hard work on this project.
you can read more about it here.


and so the following are the things currently on my mind:


vintage textiles and hand stitching

eccentric and personal interiors


vintage utilitarian objects

books

i have quite a few. i love non-fiction but my heart is with fiction. when i am lost in a good book there is nowhere else i'd rather be. historical novels are a favorite.


landscape and landscape paintings


small remote towns in far away places




homesteading and self-sufficiency
my first introduction to these ideas was in my early 20s and began with reading about
helen and scott nearing and living the good life.
good music
i regularly post music videos on my blog. perhaps to the consternation of my readers.
lucky for them and unfortunately for me we are not in the same room with me saying,
no, you HAVE to listen to this.




humor

funny is pretty important to me. for instance, i spent a good 15 minutes laughing hard over this list this morning.

and last but not least, since launching this little blog i am always inspired by the lovely lovers who bother to stop in and read it. man i love you. like, big fat love.
xo to eternity,
liane
