I am forced to confess that I have been copying photos from blogs for a long time now. I am forced to make this confession, because some of my favorite things are found on blogs around Blogville. I’m sharing a few of them with you today. I have a LOT more of them in my inspiration file! Yes, this is grand theft we’re talking about. If anyone objects to my posting of their photos, please let me know, and I will remove it from my blog (it will stay in my inspiration file though-so I hope you don’t sue me!)














Don’t forget about the Bathroom Diva Party at Note Songs on Friday, May 7th!


Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you aren’t shocked by my confession! I try to avoid crime, but y’all just keep posting so much inspiration that I want to save! laurie

Woohoo! Look at me...I'm first!!

I am impressed you were able to pick out some pictures from all the amazing blogs and photos people show! They ae all wonderful and you picked some of my favs as well!

I confess I do the same thing and save the pics in file folders. I secretly hope the FBI never comes and takes my computer for photo fraud - but I love looking at the pretty pictures!

The Charm of Home said...

Yes, an inspiration file is a must. If you give credit I think it is fine to post some lovely photos. Some of those are my favorites too.

Hi Lauri,
Those photos are so gorgeous, it's no wonder that you copied them. I can't wait to visit the links to these blogs.

What a fabulous idea for MY FAVORITE THINGS...I love this idea and my files are full of rooms that I love in Blogland, too. I am gonna have to copy way out.
hugs, bj

Sarah said...

Laurie, you picked some of my favorite blogs. It is truly amazing to think about the wealth of inspiration out in Blogville. Thanks for hosting Favorites Things!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Laurie, what a sweet little thief you are!! I do that too! I save the inspirational pics on my computer. There are so many gorgeous ones aren't there? I have a confession. I have some of your pics on my computer as inspiration too! Hugs,

xinex said...

Oh Laurie, I am so honored to have my dining room in your file. Thanks! You can steal any of my pics anytime, great thief! I have to confess that I am tempted to do this too but I just copy the ideas instead....Christine

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Laurie, you are a hoot! Thanks for sharing "OTHERS" pictures! LOL! I a going to make a file like that! Hope you don't mind I use some of YOUR pictures of the past!


Natasha said...

I am SO guilty of that crime too! I don't know some of these blogs so I will have to go and check them out!

Thanks for hosting this lovely linky party Laurie!

Best wishes,

KBeau said...

Great idea to save those pictures on your computer. I can't believe I haven't thought of that. Love your blog, Laurie.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh, those are just wonderful. Some of those are my favorites too. It would be such fun to just put them all together in one house. Great post. Hugs, Marty

susan said...

You DO have excellent taste! I have big file myself! Have a great weekend!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Thank you, Laurie, for including our breakfast room, to your file and to this post!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Laurie,
Well break out the handcuffs! You are busted. :-)

I am SO flattered that you included a picture of our funky old breakfront in your "faves." It's one of my favorites, too -- although I don't think Howard can look at it without nightmare flashbacks of transporting it from Manhattan's West Side to New Jersey!

I'm putting together my Favorites for today -- be back soon to link up!
Best wishes ... Cass

Kathleen said...

OK! I can see a new button popping up on blogs..


I like your faves, but I admit, I have never saved a pic..I should..easier than trying to remember where you saw something!

Have a great weekend!

lvroftiques said...

Girlfriend you know I'm a BAD girl! Lol! So of course I've snuck a pic or two (Ok maybe 200 or more) into my inspiration file heh heh! And you just made my day by including my poor little secretary with all those other fabulous blog pix!! Girl you use any of my pics any time you want...I'll send YOU a check in the mail *winks* Love ya! Vanna

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Good afternoon my Dear Laurie, girl you are too funny you always make me laugh...I pray all is well with your and BOSS man...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Thanks for sharing your "stolen" pics.. :D Some I have seen and some I don't remember seeing. Thanks for hosting again this week.
I have had about all this weather I can take, and they are saying more tonight !! :( I have not been on the computer a whole lot today as my router for my laptop is hooked up thru my desktop comp. and I had to cut the power to it when the storms came thru.

Rettabug said...

I'm so glad you admitted to saving other people's pictures for inspiration...guilty here too!! LOL

I'm happy you showed them to us, too because several are of blogs that I didn't know about! Thanks!!

First time for me to join in your favorites party. Fun idea!

Susan (Between Naps On The said...

Laurie, this post brought back sooo many memories...I was naming a lot of these people/places as I saw them. You are so much inspiration! Thanks for including my porch...I'm honored that you "stole" that pic. LOL
BTW, I love how you change up your header pic. Your yard/gardens are beautiful! Wish my grass looked like that!!!

GardenOfDaisies said...

All of those are so pretty! I can see why you would want to save those pictures in a file for inspiration.
Once again, thanks for hosing this fun favorites party!!

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Hi Laurie! Wow! Your home is gorgeous! And I was so surprised and tickled to see one of my pics among those you "stole"!! lol I don't know if I have ever told you, but your kitchen was one of my favorite places to visit on RMS! I have been so happy to have a chance to get to know the owner of that lovely room through blogland! And you are welcome to go GW hunting with me any time! I would even let you have first choice since you would be my guest! lol Happy weekend...hugs...Debbie

From one thief to another - I understand this addiction! I do the same thing. I love looking over and over again at my 'pretty rooms' files! This is what makes blogland so much fun - the inspiration, well and the coveting of these glorious rooms!
Now, honey, don't be alarmed, I have some of your beautiful rooms in my 'pretty rooms' files! :)
Oh, thank you for posting about my party. I hope we have a good turnout!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Prior said...

you picked some good ones! Lezlee

GardenOfDaisies said...

Laurie, I have tried to zoom in on the pictures of the doll houses to try to tread the price tags... One looks like it might say $47 and one looks like it is... maybe $120 ??? It is hard to read and I don't know if that is correct... 100 and something. The others either have tags turned the other way, or I can't make them out at all. If there is one in particular that you want to know about, I might be able to go back there sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Honey, you can copyfrom me anytime! Thanks for featuring Vignette Designs! Love ya! xoxo Delores

Joy Tilton said...

Me too, yep I go to google all the time for pictures and no matter what I write about...I can find a picture that makes the post better! We often learn of other great blogs when you share photos and information so I think it's a good thing. Unless a blogger says not to copy (in their sidebar) then I guess it's ok. If I don't get my list of favorites under control, I will never get anything done!!!

Laurie Eve, So thrilled you stole from me..anytime!!!! I was very flattered to find my entryway in your stolen lot! Thank you!!! That was so fun to view all the Laurie Favs..I lowed them all..and I spotted my concrete lamb from Wisteria on someone's table too! I am
feeling inspired myself..wish I could get inspired to clean!!! Susie

You can do this kind of grand theft anytime Laurie!! Thanks for the shout out!!

I have a ton of pictures too in my files. My problem is that I don't exactly know how to save them in such a way that I would know whose blog they go to. Do you have a system?
