I give up!

In order to do my next post, I am looking for my inspiration picture. I have looked at hundreds of images on the web, and I can't find it. So this is where you come in. One of our fellow bloggers has an antique dresser painted black. In place of the drawers, she put in two long, rectangular baskets and labeled them with her kids names. On top of the dresser, she has a couple of glass cookie jars with crayons and such in it. Does ANYONE know who she is? Where can I find her? Are you out there, inspiration girl??????? I will be forever indepted to the bounty hunter...errr...blogger who can find her.

Let this be a lesson--SAVE EVERY PICTURE YOU EVER FALL IN LOVE WITH!

On another quick note, you people amaze me. I asked, and you answered. A daybed it is! I had no idea I was in such a minority by having a "regular" bed growing up. Some of you have asked about the pictures, and I am now reminded that I didn't state where they came from.

The first one is by Stanley. It's the Young America series.
The second one is by Poshtots.com. If you've never been there before, prepare yourself. It's that good.

I'll be back with a regular post...I'm working on a couple of things, and they're drying right now. :)

Good luck on finding that picture...that happens to me all the time. You would think I would learn.

I have zero idea, I am so sorry. But good luck!

I wish I could help - it sounds like a great idea! If, or when, you find it, let us know! I want to see it! :)

I think I saw something like that on We Are That Family. She was showing ideas that SHE liked from other places.

Sorry, I can't help you on the blogger you're looking for - but I do know that feeling. That's what we get for skipping and jumping around!

Mmmm... it sounds like you don't need the photo. You've got it in your head. I'm sure you'll come up with something great if you can't find it.

Kris said...

I looked a little for you but came up with a whole lotta nothing! I've done that too though - lesson learned, save everything!

I hope someone can find it for you!

I hope you find it. Sounds really cute. I was just thinking yesterday of a creative way to store crayons. All I came up with was a tupperware container that lunch meat comes in...real creative :)

I'm coming up with a blank too - I hate when I do that too, I think "I'll remember where I saw that" - yeah right! --Now I use ClipMarks - have you tried that? I save every little thing I like and you can organize them, make notes etc.

Good Luck!

I hope you find the picture you're looking for. I hate when that happens. Can't wait to see your project.

A little tip for you...check craigslist for daybeds. I'm looking for one for my playroom and have been stalking craigslist every day waiting for the right one to show up.

I vaguely remember that post somewhere too but of course I can't remember who it was. Sounds like a super cute idea though, I know you'll pull it together with or without the original "inspiration" photo.

I think the day bed is going to be adorable! My son has some furniture from the Young America collection you mentioned and it's really nice. Well made and all that good stuff. Good luck finding what you want.

No clue...but I am wondering when you'll start Valentine Crafts? I am decorating a white Valentine tree this year (Walmart clearance $17.00!) And I have one idea for a tree topper...and was hoping for more....these are hard to find...the ideas I mean...and ornaments too. Thanks!
