Where is Your Inspiration?

Have you ever found your inspiration in the most unexpected places?

Do farmer's markets inspire you?

I was at the farmer's market last week and just started snapping left and right. Everything was organized in big barrels and wonderfully colorful.

Can we say hello pretty colors??

And then I came across some metals. How cool is this grouping of galvanized buckets? The market uses these to display all of their fresh flowers.

Darn it, I don't have any photos of the zinnias, but they have a huge field of zinnias and you can even pick your own. For anyone local, all of these photos were taken by yours truly at Maple Acres Farm Market in Plymouth Meeting.

I do have a photo of one of the flower arrangements we had for my daughter's birthday party. I had bought a bunch of zinnias and snapdragons and they threw in a few sunflowers for free - it was so nice and love how they jazz up the arrangements (done by one of my good pals Christina).

Can't forget the Mike & Ike's! 

Have you found inspiration in any unexpected places recently? 

PS - I went to see The Help last night with a good friend and yes, it is worth all of the hype it is getting. Cried like a baby, sat in the chair while the credits rolled (and I never do that), and just thought it was great.


  1. Holly, I love farmer's markets. In fact, I'm going to one this afternoon!

  2. The eggplant are gorgeous! I love farmers markets too.

  3. Love your pics! Our farmer's mkt is one of my favorite summer spots. So glad to hear that you enjoyed the Help. It was one of my favorite books!

    Have a great weekend!


  4. I am local and have never heard of that farm market. I will have to check it out. Your pictures are beautiful!
