Some girls get giddy over a new pair of shoes. Marian Parsons gets giddy over room makeovers.
With a lot of ingenuity, a little bit of effort, and a tight budget, she has transformed her home into a beautiful space and filled her heart with a lot more contentment. Thousands have found inspiration at Marian's blog, missmustardseed.com, and now she shares dozens of new projects, ideas, and DIY adventures in the pages of Inspired You.
Marian will remind you that homes don't have to be magazine material to be special, comfortable, and inviting. The goal you're working toward is home. Not a perfect home. Not an "impress the neighbors" home. Just home, "one whose walls and rooms tell the story of the family who lives there. Beautiful homes start with inspiration and a willingness to try. So uncover your God-given creativity. Be encouraged, be willing, and be inspired."
On a side note, I, "The Purple Painted Lady" have had the honor to working a bit closer to Marian than just your typical shop owner. My husband Steve and I created a virtual color mixing tool that is a great aid and fun tool to mix up to three different colors of her milk paint as so to see the outcome. Marian was so incredibly gracious and excited about the tool, but also for us in regards to developing it. She could have told us that we did not have her approval as since- it was not labeled with her brand technically, and it would cause more people to come to our site versus if it was only on hers. I found Marian to be sincerely the type of women you perceive her as from this book, her blog and videos. She is incredibly authentic, genuine, gracious, supportive and caring.
Not only is this book a wonderful gift for someone since it has the perfect balance of unique decorating ideas balanced with insightful life balancing thoughts. It is a must to have yourself. It reminds you about what is truly important in this life. I hope you consider ordering it- you will not be disappointed!
