Inspiration Friday- Exteriors (A day late)

I can no longer contain my enthusiasm for Inspiration Fridays. I'm too much of an inspiration junky to not participate.

I'm totally focused on exteriors right now, even though mother nature cares nothing about my hopes and dreams and plans on dumping 1 to 2 inches of snow on my yard today. These are some pictures that are inspiring my plans right now. I hope they inspire you too.

  2. Hi Jen, I love all those photos! I'm planning on adding a door surround this summer so I was really interested in the one you posted. Do you mind if I copy that picture just for my file? I'm gathering ideas. Are you thinking of adding a fence?

    I always find inspiration at your blog!

  5. Jen, we have such similar tastes - I love the pictures you posted for inspiration. I didn't get my Inspiration Friday pictures posted yesterday - the time just slips away. And your entryway with the bench in the post below are really beautiful. It looks great!

  6. Your site is absolutely inspiring. Suprisingly, it looks like mine ( the layout and colour setting, that is...) and the pictures you posted are truly beautiful.

  7. Great looking! I'm actually bemoaning the fact that it's already almost 90 degrees down here...by August I'll be a puddle on my front step!

    I remember the article with the lady on the bike...loved her take on yellow. Enjoy your exterior endeavors!

  9. Jen, thanks for the comment on my blog. I also like finding other "Hoosier bloggers".

    This weather has been something else. I've been in Indiana my whole life and don't recall a spring like this one. But today is sunny, so we'll forget about yesterday and look forward to a "real spring" soon.

  16. Jen...took me awhile to realize I was reading YOUR blog. Love, love, love it! I sometimes wonder if you are spying on my thoughts...we save the same pictures and want the same stuff!

    You are tons of inspiration for me and your house is just GORGEOUS! You should share more on GI. I've been too lazy to create any accounts to leave comments...but I did it just now for you and your blog. ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  23. Hi,
    I didn't see an email address, so I am leaving a comment. Love your daughter's room by the way.
    I took your advice on one of your favorite sites. Sally Jean. I ordered a necklace for my mom for Mother's Day. I just received it and it is so cute. So thanks for your favorite sites. I love your blog.
