I get a lot of inspiration from sticking things on a board...something about the way colours clash, little notes, swatches of fabric, post-cards, old tickets, photos or trinkets - never fails to get my mind buzzing. This is where I pin my things up - I like to change it around now and then.

If I see a pin board in the background of a photo...I always want to take a closer look...what's on yours?

mine has pretty business cards from people that I bought stuff in. I have 2 more blank ones that I want to fill up with pictures and cuttings from magazines.

I love your button tack. Where can I get some?

Your board reminds me of a shadow box I made for my dad of his days in Occupied Japan!

Oh my goodness, I haven't visited here for so long! I've been a terrible blogger and blogging friend I know. Anyway, looks as though there have been some changes around here. I have a photo of that exact same little house up top - in NZ right? The photo we have of it is one of our favourites from the whole trip and is very similar to yours. Beautiful!

I love inspiration boards too - mine has been the same for about two years now - I just can't fit anything else on it. Maybe it needs a rearrange...hrmmm!

Hope all is well!
