What I'm Reading ~ Inspired You by Miss Mustard Seed & A New Project

"God is the creator of all things, and we are made in His image,
so surely there is a creative side to all of us."

-Marian Parsons, Miss Mustard Seed

I'm frequently awestruck by the beautiful images on her blog.  Now, I'm being inspired by her words.  I'm currently reading Inspired You: Letting God Breathe New Life Into Your Heart and Home by Marian Parsons, better known as Miss Mustard Seed around the blog world. 

And on a related note, I'm working on a project piece using Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint for the first time.  If you're local, you can find MMS milk paint at SuzAnna's Antiques.  All the colors are beautiful, but for this project, I chose Shutter Gray.  It's such a lovely gray with a hint of blue.

Beautiful lines

What projects have you started in the New Year?

  1. My focus this year is on meal planning! My family
    wants to eat more at home and stay out of restaurants
    as much as possible.

    Happy New Year, Mary Ellen!

  2. That's such a gorgeous piece! I'll be interested to find out what you think of that paint.

  3. That table has gorgeous lines. You'll have to show the project when you are finished. I'm dying to try that paint.
