Inspiration from flickr

Pin It Now!


Beautiful Flickr Favorites, originally uploaded by Romantic Home.

There are so many beautiful photos on flickr! I can just get lost there for longer than I should! These mosaics are another fun thing you can make on the Big Huge Labs site, www.bighugelabs.com.

I took a vacation day today. I'm selling a bunch of junk at the flea market tomorrow. I have to clean closets today and get everything piled in my car so I can hit the road before the sun comes up tomorrow! I need to stay focused and get this not-so-fun job done and try to resist the urge to read blogs today! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

The collage of pictures is just so pretty.
About the "stuff"-- I hope you sell it all then, you don't have to reload the car. Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Wendy
I just love your blog.

I wish I lived closer to you to go trough all of you things. I actually can't imagine that you have something that you need to get rid of. But then on the other hand you will have more space for all the new terrific thing and finds. So I wish you a great sale.
Have fun. Suzy

I love this. I've seen these mosaics on Flickr and thought about doing it. So much blogging to do - so little time. I know I will eventually get around to doing this though.

So, so pretty. Thanks for the link, I've wanted to try this for awhile. I hope your flea market goes better than mine did. Of course, it was 95 degress that day. Don't bring home too much! Karen B

Ooh, this is pretty Cindy.

I've been wanting to do this for a while and since I'm under the weather today, I'm going to give it a try and see what romance I can come up with.

Hope you do well at the flea market - it sure is no fun cleaning out closets, but you'll feel better after it's done. Happy weekend!

Cindy, The photograph mosaic is just beautiful. When you finish sharing all you ideas on decorating, crafting, gardening, etc., maybe you can offer some tips on photography!!!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Hi Jojo, These aren't my photographs. They are from other people on flickr. I wish I could take credit for these but I can't.

I am sure you will do great at the flea market tomorrow. Thank-you for stopping by. I have had my slip cover couches for about 12 years. I love them just as much today as I did 12 years ago. The couches came with the slip covers. So when I was the slip covers the couches are just a heavy white cotton.
Have a wonderful weekend,
ginger

Mary said...

I am so happy to find your blog, Cindy.

I just stumbled by today and I feel I might have to put a 'timer' on myself to keep from being online until six am. :D

Most 'makeover' sites have so much 'rip and and replace' information and while I own my home I onlhy intend to be here a few more years, so I want to limit my costs, but not be miserable in my home. Thanks for the inspiration.

Karen Deborah said...

Catching up today. have you been to the Wisteria shop in Soquel? You would love it. I am so ready for some more picchas of Santa Cruz how bout another trip to the beach?

Karen Deborah said...

ps tea is delicious, I drink at least a pot a day. Try TZAO, it's wonderful especially the Awake. you have to find yout style in tea. I like mine with sugar and half and half. So it wouldn't help at all with nutrasystems. Try Weight Watchers. Food out of a can is too much like what we give the kitty.

Schotzy said...
