As bloggers and blog readers, I know we can all get a little burnt out from all the beautiful things we see online.  The same blogs and websites I constantly garner inspiration from, can some days make me feel like I can't do anything right and that someone out there will always have more beautiful and creative ideas.  This is a topic that has been bounced around a lot in the blog world.  I think we've all been there, even the most inspirational and successful bloggers have felt this way from time to time. 

When I have a moment like that I try to completely disconnect from the online world (temporarily, of course!) and find time to do something that I love and that I know I am good at.  Today, however, I would like to celebrate all the wonderful sources of inspiration I do get from perusing through websites and blogs because the internet truly is a source of non-stop beauty, creativity, and inspiration. 

I sometimes wonder where the world of design and fashion would be if it weren't for the internet.  It makes every day people who have no background in a topic they love, able to pull up images and gather ideas to use as inspiration for their own use.  I can't subscribe to Living Etc. or House and Home but I can quickly go online and check out the beautiful eye candy from past issues with the click of a mouse.  Some days I want to throw my computer out the window but most days I embrace all the beautiful images and the people who create inviting and creative spaces for me to come and gather inspiration from.  Here are a few favorite sources I have gathered over the last few months...

Where are you getting your inspiration from these days?
