One of my biggest inspirations lately is Pinterest. Have you discovered it yet? It's a brilliant idea for anyone who loves the visual world. Basically it's a Bulletin Board, where you can save images you find on the web, categorize them, follow other folks finds, and spend time wondering at all the visual riches available to us. For me, this is social media I can appreciate. Visit, and you'll probably be hooked too.
Here are some inspiring images for this week, to add to your collection.
This is a cover from some sheet music from the 1890's. Imagine wearing that outfit to your next outdoor party!
Appropriate for the upcoming weekend, this is a wonderful Patriotic image by Ellen Clapsaddle. GAR, by the way, stands for Grand Army of the Republic, a group formed for veterans of the Union Army who served in the Civil War.
Lastly, here's a great Uncle Sam image for the Fourth! I love the mischievous look he has.
The Dog and I wish you a wonderful weekend and a great 4th of July!
