One of the (many) things I love about working at the library is I get a heads up on when the book sales will take place. Last night I was working during the sale, so during my break I took a peek. I found these really great decorating books for only $1 a piece. I love to look at these types of books as I lay in bed at night, filling my head with eye candy inspiration before I doze off to sleep.
In honor of mothers day weekend, I wanted to ask you a question. Do you have similar decorating tastes as your mother? My mom and I love to go to estate sales together, but usually end up buying quite different things. She loves oriental pieces and I'm usually looking for supplies for my art. However, when working on my new column JunkMama Journals yesterday, I was at my parents house looking through old pictures. I came across this photo (below) of the area above our kitchen table in my childhood home. We both giggled with delight, because we had never thought about it, but here my mom displayed many family treasures and antiques in a similar way as I do today. She chose the kitchen wall as an area of inspiration. I have shared on this blog over and over the ever-changing wall in my kitchen today where I display my various creations and curiosities. Like mother, like daughter. I love you mom! How apropos- check out the domino magazine home page for more discussion of this.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
