Midweek Break

Looking for a little inspiration to brighten up your midweek? From a brightly colored interior door and centuries old architecture to impulsive hair-color decisions and vintage typewriters, where do you draw your inspiration? 

I love putting together mood boards whenever I'm lacking ideas. They are typically the product of staring at a blank blogpost longer than 20 minutes once the panic sets in that I will no longer be able to form coherent sentences or  write anything of any meaning ever again. Truth be told, last week's Lifestyle Blogging Guide was a similar product born out of the empty time waiting for New Girl and Mindy Project to come on.

When the weather is seasonally terrible and more of your time is spent indoors than outdoors, how do keep the creative juices flowing? Because I'm sort of at a loss and there may be more and more sarcastic ramblings. But maybe that's ok.

Also, if anyone else is as type-obsessed as I am, how perfect is this ampersand? I could care less about the rest of the typeface, but this is perfection.

Before anything else is mentioned... OH MY GOSH! I am completely in love with the loft with the Christmas lights and bike. I want that in my home.

On another note, have you ever read Anne Lamott? She is a very talented writer who often talks about writing/creativity/blanking-it. You may want to read her book "Bird by Bird". I haven't finished it, but what I have read is good. She's got a quirky sense of humor too, which is a plus.

And finally, I love The Mindy Project. The end.
