Muted Inspiration Board

The other day things were sort of "laying around" here and these colors kept getting my attention so I had to make an inspiration board which is on of my favorite things to do. I am quite shocked this came about, these darker, muted colors aren't usually the colors I am drawn to but I guess I feel early fall creeping in. Plus, I have always loved that striped cover from my Paperchase sketchbook. I really love the feeling of this board and suddenly my normal bright colors are looking shocking.

We took a bike ride this a.m. (first day of sun since Saturday) and my kids are picking up beautiful signs of fall approaching. I will share them soon!

Mmmm yes...those colors are so nice, a totally different mood, and definitely a hint of Autumn in there. I can't wait to see what come from this bit of inspiration.
Yay! The sun came back!

how beautiful! i love the colors and they're definitely not ones i would normally be drawn to, but with the images and all together like this, there's something hugely comforting going on there. thank you so much for the inspiration!
