I've been trying to think of a way I could present visual inspiration as I come across it in daily life. I wanted this feature to fit seamlessly into my already existing school inspired posts (works cited, book reports, vocabulary lessons).
So, welcome to the knitxcore a/v club!!!
I find little things here and there that inspire the things I create, and make me feel like what I'm doing is important and relevant.
This is also is a way for me to personally document things that I would like to be able to reference later. No amount of Omega-3's is going to help me remember every single thing that stumble upon.
Today, David and I were watching "The Waltons". (I'm sort a Hallmark Channel junkie). And I got to thinking about how much a television show from my childhood has inspired so many aspects of my adult life. We didn't have cable when I was a kid, so reruns of old seventies shows was just about all that we could tune in with those funny rabbit ear antennae.
As a kid, I probably wanted a house full of inflatable furniture and lava lamps. But as I look around my real life "adult" home I see all sorts of parallels to America's most charming family. I tend to favor really classic, simple furniture and things that seems to have a history behind them. Don't get me wrong, I love a little mid-century personality, but my home has a cozy sort of quality that I think Olivia would have approved of.
I can't help but smile when I look at this picture!!! It makes me wish I could quit my job and move into an 19th century farmhouse, adopt a couple of ginger kids and milk cows into my golden years. (I think I have the wardrobe under control already).
I always get these sort of weird nostalgic feelings towards thing I've never experienced.
