I’ve gone back to my bad habit of stealing inspiration photos from other blogs. Don’t blame me – blame these inspiring bloggers. Who can resist copying a photo for their inspiration file when there is so much beauty in Blogville.?

(I will not be offended if you do not want your photo on my blog. Please email me, and I will immediately remove it. If you allow me to use a photo from your blog, please feel free to post my thank you button [located on my sidebar] on your blog.)

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS (STOLEN FROM OTHER BLOGS) (Clicking on the photo will whisk you away to the victim’s blog):

Thanks so much for coming by to see what I’ve stolen lately. Please go visit the links for Favorite Things. laurie

Sweet European Dreams said...

hi Laurie! I love that you feature other blogs - it helps me find other folks that I otherwise might not ever come across. Looking forward to perusing the links here tonight. Have a great weekend! -diane

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Laurie you chose some great inspirations this week!

Debbie said...

Well, I'm incredibly flattered to be in the company of some of my very favorite blogs!!! It makes me want to rush "home" and spruce up the place.

On top of it, there are two that are new to me so I get to hop right over there this morning and check them out.

Bargain hunting is fun, but my favorite part of visiting here is the chatting with Laurie part. This is such a great blog!

And no, I'm not writing a book. I guess I'm just a writing floozie and give it away for free... Ha!

The Tablescaper said...

Oh, Laurie I'm honored to be a part of your inspiration post! Just link up for this week and now I'm off to check out some of the other inspiration posts.

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Hi Laurie,
I think it is a great honor when you "steel" one of the photos to show it on your post. All the pictures are really lovely and I knew a lot of them.
I am joining in your party today. Thank you for hosting such a nice event.
Greetings, Johanna

I love your choices, Laurie! Sorry I am so late! My computer was not a happy camper, so I am posting from my DD's house! I hope you are warm and cozy today! We are expecting snow and (oh horrors!) ice!...hugs...Debbie

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I love your inspiration, Laurie, and I want to play along with your meme sometime. Is it on Saturday? I would love to join you when I have something to share that I think would fit the theme.

Hope you're having a great Monday...
