Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant
Those things roll off my knife;
Just serve me tomatoes, and mashed potatoes;
Give me the simple life.
(Harry Ruby/ Rube Bloom, Give Me The Simple Life)
As promised, today I am going to share with you some of what inspires me in my quest to nest! I had considered profiling just a few items and discussing why they inspire me, but I had trouble narrowing them down. So instead, I've made a little cloud of all the wonderful people, places, and things that give me inspiration!
