Inspired You

 blue & whites and Eulalie

Sometimes you run across someone online who you just absolutely adore.  Marian Parsons, Miss Mustard Seed is one of those people you meet, you love, you walk away encouraged.

I’ve hung out with Marian, we’ve chatted on the phone, texted, and we’ve even sat next to each other on a plane (she was kind to put up with my plane riding shenanigans, have I mentioned planes and I don’t get along?) I even bought one of her Mustard Seed tee shirts.  I’ve read her blog for years and y’all she’s one of the sweethearts of the blog world.  I’m a fan.

 And she wrote a book.

Inspired You. Letting God Breath New Life Into Your Heart and Home

Inspired You is a book you want to flip through just looking at all the photos which are stunning, then, you want to sit down and read all the words, then you want to get up and create something beautiful! It’s a perfect combination of inspiration, motivation and of course, fantastic tutorials like making an ottoman, making a sheet music wreath and of course~how to paint furniture.

Here’s a sweet little 90 second video of Marian talking about her book:

    I love Miriam’s blog and I have loved feeling like I learned through her a little bit of what it would feel like to be trying to do it all and do it well. As an author and with her paint launch this year. I feel the same way about your blog and that each day I really take something away from it. I hide from my kiddos and I read both of yours as well as Shaunna’s from Perfectly Imperfect and Ashley’s from Handmade Home faithfully. I have loved the thirty-one day series. They have brought out some really amazing things. But I think the best part is the complete and utter support from your fellow peers you receive. Each of you really respect and like each other, and it is so nice and so cool to see.

  23. Why not, I’ll take a stab at it. Congratulations to Marion. God is blessing her faithfulness.

  24. I’m so excited about MMS’s book! I’m excited about the eye-candy and projects, of course, but I’m also very excited about reading what she has to say on this subject. She is such an encouragement and inspiration. :-)

I love your blog also and feel lucky that there are so many blessed and talented women entrepreneurs to follow as an example.

  44. These rooms are gorgeous. The cow portrait is amazing hung right over the dresser and as someone with a piano and a small house I love the warmth you feel seeing a piano in the sitting room with chairs pulled up close. I would love to win her book but I am putting it on my Christmas list! Thanks for the giveaway.
