Melissa - The Inspired Room

I am having such a great day! Turning 46 isn't that bad.

Got a new camera, a couple of gift cards, flowers, a fresh strawberry cake and a nice dinner at the Puffin Cafe is coming. You know what I'd really like for my birthday? A comment letting me know you're here and a link to your favorite site! Whoo hoooo! More inspiration.

Today I got such nice comments from Melissa from The Inspired Room. I hopped over to her site, plus it was already in my future feature file, and I got all sucked up into her beautiful photos. Wonderful inspiring photos.

I have always loved this cowboy theme. I even did my son's first birthday with this. So cute!

Then I came across her kitchen remodel. You all know I am such a sucker for before and after shots. I love them! She hooked me for today's feature.
That red toile chair must be mine............and to think it's really not that far away from me. She's in Portland and I am a quick 20 min over the river.

We really need to gather us NW blogger's together. I mentioned that we should all meet at the Camas Antique mall. So if you're game, leave me a comment.

Head over to Melissa's site for some serious inspiration. Who needs magazines when you have Melissa?

Kim, I am so glad we connected today in blog world and would LOVE to get together in person! I have done business in Camas but I have to say I have never been to the antique mall. What a treat that would be!

Thank you so much for featuring my blog here. I have found some lovely blogs to visit (including YOURS!) and I am honored to be among your featured favorites!

Looking forward to our NW get together! :-) Hope others will join us!

Happy Birthday Kim. I am still lurking and enjoying your blogs as well as many others I have found thru you. I am making my first Pacific Northwest ( Seattle) venture the end of the month for my son's birthday. I know you don't like the traffic, but any suggestions for shops etc?
