Blog It Forward - {eco} inpsirations

Welcome.  I'm very excited to be participating today in SFGirlbyBay's blog it forward mashup.    A wonderful exercise filled with wonderful people writing wonderful things.  I wanted to congratulate Pretty {much} Art for a lovely post yesterday, and for passing me the pen, so to speak, today.  If you are new to PureGreen, I'm very pleased to meet you, and I hope you find something inspiring here today, and perhaps stay awhile! PureGreen is traditionally about stylish green living - I own an eco building and design shop in Canada, so I am constantly looking for green inspiration.  I am one of those people who is inspired by everything!  It was really hard to narrow my choices down, so I appreciated this exercise as it helped me narrow my focus and really think about me.  When was the last time you did that....?  So, I slowed things down, opened my eyes, and here is what resulted.  enjoy.

{i am inspired by starting anew...such as turning the first page of a new book, anticipating the first sip of hot cup of coffee, or even a fresh start on you calendar.  life is filled with potential.}

{i get so unbelievable inspired when i look at any creative medium.  a ball of yarn. a book of patterns.  a stack of beautiful fabric.  now, if only each project turned out like i'd imagined.}

{perhaps one of my favourite things to do is wander in nature.  walking my dog rusty is a surefire way to get my juices flowing.  a pen & paper are always nearby, as this is when i do my best thinking.  the colours are always so vivid.  this is where i feel at peace.}

{place i've been.  places i want to go.  by plane, car or train.}

{again, possibilities.  i'm not afraid of getting my hands dirty, and there's nothing better than a carrot, fresh from the ground.}

{ever notice that in this day in age, we are hardly ever alone?  every so often, this is something i need, to reconnect with myself, and get back to what inspires me.}

{to my love of recycling, i am so inspired when something unwanted is granted a new life.  salvage.  look for possibility.}

A most sincere thank you.  Please visit r's adventures Monday for more!

  5. Very beautiful and thoughtful inspirations.

  6. Your choices resonate with me especially the one about solitude. I really need that to recharge but somehow in this busy day and age, I forget it and find myself exhausted and out of touch with what I really need to recharge. Thanks so much!

    The photos of La Nature & Solitude are gorgeous - I can see why they are called in most light.
