Spring is here and I am ready to jump in with both feet! I don't know about you, but with all the new colors in fashion and decorating, I like tearing out my favorite images and pinning them up when the season changes.
I found a small spot to hang my personal mood board above my desk in our spare bedroom. I also make a small one in my closet with fashion inspirations. I love having a place to post images, cards and and other lovely things that bring the feel of a season. For the Pinterest addicts, like myself, it's much the same, only larger and more personal!
A few shots of the large board above my desk. Love the cards from my kids and hubby.
I try to keep postcards of all my travels so I can relive my trips just a little each time I walk by. One of my favorites is the portrait of Raphael from the Uffizi in Florence. I love his face. Painted cards like the half-timbered house from Normandy are fun to keep too. I think it is great add invitations, thank you cards and special notes from the mail. They are all so rare nowadays, I try to save them!
Here's a few other cool boards to give you some ideas. Some messy and others are very orderly. All fun to look at I think.

I adore that Slim Paley's board is loaded with Summer memories. I think I'll collect a more souvenirs from our trips and try to replicate my own version of this beautiful board. I guess this is just another form of collage and I love it!
What about you? Does this get you in the mood to make your own?
