August Inspiration 1: Basket of Peaches by Helen Eaton

There's just something about a basket of fresh peaches that gets me every time.  I want to pick one up and take a deep breath to smell it.  If you see beautiful peaches in the grocery store, go ahead... sniff one.  If you don't smell a thing, put it right back where you found it. If the vendor at the farmers' market has peaches, go ahead... smell them. Then hand him your money and let him put them into your reusable cloth bag.

August Inspiration 2: Cottage Garden by Sara Harley

Gardening is one of my hobbies, and I enjoy looking at them as well. Flower gardens, vegetable gardens, formal gardens, cottage gardens, and everything in between. The personality of the gardener shines through every time.


  1. Fresh peaches are so pretty (and tasty). The cottage photo is very cool!

    1. Our part of the country had a hard late freeze that was terrible on our peaches this year. Boo!
      The color combination in Sara's cottage and flowers is calling to me!
