Decorating Inspiration Part 2

Part 1 can be viewed here.

Besides all the blogs I read and magazine clippings I've collected over the years, I also have books that I gain inspiration from for decorating. Most of these are available at the library, although I do own a few of the books. I've ordered one or two from ebay at very low prices.

One book I especially like for the holidays is the annual Christmas with Southern Living.  I always get this from the library. It has a lot of recipes, but my favorite parts are about decorating your home for the holidays. I get a lot of inspiration just looking through these books.

I've mentioned my love of Nell Hills on another blog. She has just come out with a new book.

Some of her other books are:

I also picked this one up at the library recently. I love southern style! It's my favorite.

This one had a lot of nice photographs and it was only $4.00 for a hardback copy.

I saw this lady (Carolyn Roehm) years ago on an Oprah program and never forgot her. She mesmerized me. She put together a beautiful fall table on the show and it has stuck with me all these years later. There is something about setting a table and making it beautiful that brings me so much joy. It's just something that God has placed on the inside of me.

I'm sure I'm leaving out some good books, but these are the ones that came to mind today. If you have a favorite, I'd love to know about it.

  2. Kathy, you have many of my favorites, but I will add an author for you to check out. She has only a couple of books but I love them and they are very much things that are easy and affordable to do. Her name is Terry Willits and she has a Christmas and I believe 2 other decorating books. I have them all and love them. I reread her Christmas book each year right about this time!
    Happy decorating!
