Organized Inspiration

In the spirit of "My Cup of Te," I'm endlessly searching for inspiration! I save everything from old pictures, postcards, paint chips, magazine tears, fabric swatches, and even a drink stained cocktail napkin scribbled with a sweet note! Over the years I've amassed quite a collection of wonderful keepsakes and up until this year, save the few lucky ones, most of these cherished items have been stowed away in a box under the bed. Last Fall I decided that it was time to bust out my "inspiration" in full view, in the form of my picture frame collage (mentioned in an earlier post), because what's the point of inspiration but to be inspired? It surely wasn't doing that collecting dust under the bed! How is your inspiration on display?
