I is for...

I is for Inspiration...

Looking on blogs and on Pinterest... I find some of the most inspiratonal spaces and places.  One of my favorite photos is of this beautiful old door with tattered wallpaper... I literally look at it almost daily...because of this photo,  I've saved an old green door from the barn... and found some vintage wallpaper, but...
still haven't started the project... an old door turned into a head board..

This photo has inspired me for months... I love it... I love the door... I love the tattered wallpaper... I want it!  So from inspiration to "find!"; this past weekend, when we were camping in Kerrville, I just had to swing by and visit some of my favorite bloggers/junkers... in particular Betsy of Sisters Treasures and Theresa of  Gardens Antqs Vintage... Both would tell you I'm a regular customer... Both would tell you I generally shop with specific ideas in mind...
I didn't have much time this weekend... but that was okay.. cause look what I found at Theresa's booth... a treasure! A dream! I just couldn't believe it!

 not a door... but a screen... with tattered, vintage wallpaper...
INSPIRATION!!

So yes, it was love at first sight... and the price was just right! I can hardly wait to clean it up a little and find a perfect place for it at the farm...
Thank you dear sweet friend Theresa Cano... You absolutely made my weekend!

More fabulous finds for the old farmhouse...

how delightful to find this screen, so close to the image that was imprinted on your brain! I seldom have such luck, so I'm pleased for you.

Aww thank you, Dixie for the sweet words. I must have missed that divider screen in Theresa's space because I don't remember it and I know I would have if I'd seen it. I'm glad you found it. It's wonderful! Thanks again.
