Blog It Forward: What inspires me?

Yay. At long last, it's finally my turn to take part in the 'blog it forward' series set up by sfgirlbybay (who by the way is a HERO for organizing all of us crazy 300+ bloggers). What a series. Did you check out the list of participants? Lots of awesomeness. What an amazing group to keep company with, I'm honored and a little intimidated. My 'what inspires me' post is following a great one from Oh So Beautiful Paper and coming up after me is Once Upon a Chai Tea Latte, one blue wren and One Pearl Button. Check 'em all out! So, without further ado, what inspires me?

{I hate people who say women aren't funny. Go straight to hell, I say. Here's six of the best: first lady of funny Tina Fey, Kaitlin Olsin (from my beloved It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Kristen Wiig (clearly the bright, shinning STAR of SNL these days), Jane Lynch, The Office's Mindy Kaling (also hilarious in The 40 Year Old Virgin) and the adorable Amy Poehler.}

{I love few things more than I love a well composed wedding mood board. Here's where I find the best ones: 100 Layer Cake and Snippet & Ink. And of course, I have to plug my own unique take on wedding mood boards here and here.

{My heart flutters for vintage-y goodness and I love Parcel in Montclair, NJ, found paper co. and this awesome flickr set}

*Note: I have lost track of where I get a lot of my images from because I have a ginormous collection in a folder on my desktop. If you know where any of these are from or if they are your images please let me know and I will link accordingly.
