Being creative for a living means you need to be inspired. A lot.
The more creative juice you’re putting into the world, the more lovely goodness you need to soak up and internalize. It’s dreary February. I long to be outside for hours at a time without turning into a popsicle. Instead, I’m holed up with a book and a mug of tea. No long photo walks or blooming flowers in sight.
Thus, I turn to the interwebs, home of today’s source of inspiration: the bookworm. Enjoy the eye candy and food for thought.
The best part of My Fair Lady: the library.
It’s similar to this one…that giant ladder makes me weak in the knees.
Remember when the beast gifts the castle library to Belle? I was so jealous.
You may as well haul your laptop into the library and watch Handmade Nation, a documentary film about the DIY/arts & crafts movement that’s swept the nation. If only Netflix was into indy flicks and grassroots films, I would have seen this by now.
Modern libraries require chic magazine organization! This vintage magazine rack on sale at Fishbone Deco. (Feel free to purchase and ship to me.)
While you’re busy being a bookworm, you must be chic. I love Anthropologie’s latest take on bookworm-dom. This updated plaid dress, called Atop the Mezzanine, is off the hook.
Each image remains the property of his or her creator, which isn’t me. It feels kinda dirty, since I usually show off only images I’ve taken, but it’s a brave new world, baby! (Do you dig it? The inspiration post like this? Or not so much?)
As you nod off snuggling a book, don’t forget the GloWorm. Did anyone else fall asleep to the light of this as a kid?
Finally, share that library card goodness for Valentine’s Day. Card shown by Card and Envelope.
