Quotes and Inspiration

One of my favourite daily reads is from Portland Oregon resident (yep, there I go again, another Portland-ite!), Summer Allen-Gibson. Summer's design based blog Design is Mine is firmly fixed in my morning routine. Design is Mine brings together a good dose of photo collages, a hint of fashion, fantastic Etsy finds and art collections, interior inspirations and a regular slot that has inspired this entire post - Thought of the Day.

Summer posts images of posters, embroidery, prints etc, all with an inspirational quote or saying. Sometimes something as simple as 'Be Happy' or 'Love Me', and sometimes something that brings a smile, like, 'I really like being alive. A lot.' Pieces that make you stop, ponder and reflect, and then hopefully give you a little charge for the day.

It was Summer's 'Thoughts of the Day' that inspired me to hunt out my own small collection to pop on the Alphabet today. I hope you find something that kick starts your day... enjoy!
