I DON'T HAVE AN INSPIRATION BOARD!


I couldn't join in 'THIS IS...' this week as I don't have an inspiration board. I am just not organised enough, and also most of my inspiration comes from, well, chunky things like old books, vintage children's clothes, toys, knitted things and stuff that just can't be pinned onto a board.


I do have boxes and boxes of stuff that inspires me though, a whole roomful in fact, so I pulled out a few bits and pieces just to join in the game!




This last photo is of my collection of vintage Ladybird books, a constant source of inspiration, and (below) a huge board I made from some spare ones last August for the Lark stand at a trade fair, which still sits by my desk.
