Pretty in Pink Inspiration and Dreams!

Happy Pink Saturday!
I would like to share something with you...
 I grew up in a very small town. 
We were 20 miles from the closest grocery store.
We also did not have cable TV.
My world was very small.
  As a child I always loved creating artistic collages and crafts. 
As much as I loved art, I have always believed it to be more of a ~hobby~.
I still live in a fairly small world. 
However, through blogging, I have discovered a beautiful world of talented creative artists that have expanded my thinking toward art.
I read blogs and then see these women published in magazines and it just tickles my creative bone to no end!
Check out this magazine of talented artists when you have the chance...
Two of the ladies featured in this magazine, are very inspirational
and 
This magazine is a bit pricey, I really can't afford the splurge, but I visit our bookstore with the kids and devour inspirational magazines while there. Maybe just maybe one day I might get in one of these super cool magazines.
Anyhoo, thank you to all the creative bloggers and artists out there who encourage me through their gorgeous blogs and lovely comments! Maybe my dreams aren't as far outta reach as my little world makes me think...
What fuels your dreams?
Happy Pink Saturday!
Thank you to our lovely hostess Beverly!
 Dreaming of this pretty bag...

  3. I love your photos! They are quite dreamy!! Just beautiful! I too go to my bookstore and browse through decorating magazines. Some of them are very expensive...so this way I get to enjoy a good read AND a cup of coffee while great music is playing behind me! Honestly, that is my little escape! Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Hi Sweetie!
    You are just so sweet and I am so GLAD that I sent it to you. You know when the Lord places something on your heart, you just have to do it!

    Bloggers are simply amazing and I love how they inspired and create. I completely understand what you have said. I love those magazines too...I have splurged on 1 with a coupon! Isn't it neat to say you *know* that person?

    You have a blessed week!

  19. Olivia I bet you have the fondest memories of childhood....cable, is over rated! Kids need to go out and play and be creative in their play, like we did when we were kids. I hardly watched TV growing up...still don't hardly! Pretty pink post.

  20. Olivia, your photos are lovely and I can only imagine the lovely memories you have growing up in a small town. I think a small place is much healthier. The pink bag is adorable! I'm very late making my Pink Saturday rounds but I am so glad I stopped by here. Have a beautiful day.

    Blessings,
