Inspiration and a cup of joe..

As an photog wanna-be I'm constantly looking for inspiration. Just tonight when I was sitting down to a dinner of angel hair pasta with a lovely red sauce and fresh picked (i just reached down and plucked it out of the pot) basil, I found inspiration. I had this urge to run and get the camera, it was so pretty sitting on my plate in the sun..
but I was hungry and the pasta tasted so kept eating. question today dear reader is what is YOUR inspiration?? What is your "pasta in the sun" moment?? Here are a few more of mine.

-My kiddos
-Washington landscape
-Junking, thrifting and crafting
-Human emotion..raw
-The Anthropologie catalog (gets me every time)
-And soon to be added..Paris

These are some of the things that make me want to snap, snap, snap away:)

**EDIT** I'm not just talking about inspiration for taking photos..I'm talking about ALL sorts of inspiration**

Now.. here is what you need to do, share with us at least one (or as many as you would like) items of inspiration and you will be entered in a sweet give-away. If I draw your name on Friday (AFTERNOON) you will win a....

Thats right fine blog reader..a 5 DOLLAR STARBUCKS GIFT CARD!! Can you believe my generosity??? Seriously I'm so frickin awesome:) (yes this give-away will be delievered in a timely manner, no more large postage items for moi!)
Oh and if you want to enter another fricken awesome (really its much better than mine) give-away head on over to my new bloggy gf's blog, and let her know Tres Birds sent ya:)

I just got the latest anthropologie catalog yesterday. I was so impressed. Besides finding a sweet shower curtain I wanted to go get my camera and take some pictures. It really is so much more than a catalog.

My other inspirations are much like yours kids, coffee, looking for lost treasures aka junking, driving with the windows down on a gorgeous day like today!

Have you checked out the islands yet? The ferry is a great kid adventure and the islands are beautiful. Friday Harbor is a great day trip. Orcas is my favorite for camping.

I have a question for you, do you know if a good farm share program in the area. I am looking without much luck. Thanks!

Oh boy, where do I begin - life, nature, music, having the right elements available to create, color, texture, blogs, magazines, sweet - vintage goodness, friends, good food...generally sweet food, flowers, coffee - and more.....

...and I AM completely amazed at you generosity!

My Kids..
The fact that my daughter is going to be a Senior now...
When Colby kisses my forehead.
When My husband tells me he is proud of me for no reason.

The wind....I love the wind..
The silence of snow...

I would say for me, it simply comes down to God and people I love. Those two drive everything else I live for and everything I choose to do!!!
