Real Inspired Living

Welcome to my cozy little corner of the world! I can't wait to share my ideas with you. You see, I have a small family, a rented house, and a very small(non-existent?) budget to work with. But that's just real life. 

I'm working with what I got and that can be a very positive thing. How? Some days that's harder to answer than others. It can be really frustrating. Some days I struggle. But contentment is important.  And it's especially important if you want to welcome people into your home.

I want people to come into my house and feel loved. I want them to be comfortable enough to let down their hair and be who they really are. I want them to feel content but I have to set that atmosphere myself.

It forces me to be resourceful. To think of old things in new ways. That's a good exercise for any artist.  And saving money is good. I'm even starting a garden.

I want to be thankful for all I have. I want to teach my son to be thankful. As little as I may have, there are others with much less. I have a lot to be thankful for.

So this will be our gathering place for sharing and inspiration. Whether you have a small fortune to spend on your home endeavors, or just enough to buy a few things at the thrift store, I hope you will find something that inspires and encourages you. If I post something that is not my original idea, I'll post a link to the site where I found it. 

And I'll let you know how that garden goes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to kill it.


  1. Hey girrrl, sweet blog! :)

    Good luck with the garden -- I only wish I could have one, but since I work like a crazy person all summer at camp, it hasn't happened yet. Although I would probably kill it too. I'm absolutely HORRIBLE at houseplants, I know that so far!


  2. Welcome to the blogosphere, Elizabeth! I love your vision for your blog & your home. Can't wait to see more!
