While this post doesn't involve inspiration from any artists besides the use of my own wonderful mind, I do credit these early mornings for providing hours of inspiration throughout my life!
A few months ago I was passing a line of acorn trees when I noticed how strong and beautiful the acorn caps were. I ended up bringing a big bag of the little suckers home and announced to my husband that I was going to clean them and drill holes in them and paint them for some amazing project I had yet to dream up!
Turns out, he drilled holes in them. And he cleaned them. And he dried them. And he varnished them. .. but I painted them! I guess I also watched and cheered him on. What a wonderful husband!right here!
