Inspired You

**This giveaway is now closed. Winners have been notified. Thanks!

Hello and happy Friday! Any fun plans this weekend? We are heading into the last few days of marching band for the year, which always makes me both sad and happy. I always miss the activity when it’s done, watching the kids…but I’ll be happy to have my husband back, at least for a few days. :)

I’ve got a special post for you today because I get to brag on a friend a bit. :) I found Miss Mustard Seed’s blog years ago and am happy to say she is now a dear friend in real life.

Marian just published her first book this week, a lovely one called Inspired You:

miss mustard seed book

When it came in the mail I was immediately taken with how pretty it was:

miss mustard seed book

I’m a decor girl, what can I say? I mean, am I wrong? :)

As soon as I started reading, it felt like Marian was reading it to me – I love how it’s such a casual read. I have avoided design/decor books all these years just because they’ve felt over my head when reading.

This one feels like you’re talking with a friend. And I nodded my head so often – I can’t agree more with the message in Marian’s book! She proves you don’t need crazy talent or lots of money to make a beautiful home.

One of my favorite quote in the books is this:

“Beautiful homes start with inspiration and a willingness to try.”

Love that!

Marian’s words are inspirational, and the photos are the eye candy:

You know how you study photos of beautiful rooms in magazines for a good long time, looking at every detail and figuring out how you can replicate it in your home? Or is it just me? ;) Well, I think I spent as much time studying the pictures as I did reading.

But it’s not just filled with finished spaces – Marian shares the before pics of many of her rooms and projects. And a bunch of really detailed tutorials as well:

There’s a tufted headboard tutorial I am determined to try!

I’m so incredibly thrilled for Marian! She is an amazing person, decorator and business woman.

I’m also thrilled that I get to give away Marian’s book to two of you! To enter just leave a comment here (make sure to include your email with (at) and (dot) spelled out to avoid spam) this weekend. I’ll email the winners on Monday after noon!

Good luck and have a GREAT weekend!! What are you up to?

  169. Miss Mustard Seed. What a marvelous name.. I have been so in need of inspiration since I have had major surgery and a huge lifestyle adjustment. I am a mom of six who went to work, volunteered as an EMT and went to school. Overnite that all changed and I am trying desperately to be involved in a project that will give me the chance to feel useful again. This blog I happened upon by chance but already I feel lighter in side because I found so many things to keep me occupied, and yes, entertained.. thank you so much accardid@gmail com, Donna
