Making Places Beautiful With Sarah + Bessie

''Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful''
~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

Many of you will remember my friend Kelly, The Lipstick Trucker. Well, she's still truckin' but she's given up her Lipstick Trucker blog to follow her true passion; home decor.

She started a new blog called Sarah + Bessie. It was named after her great-grandmother Sarah, and Sarah's daughter Bessie. I think it's a fabulous idea and I love where her inspiration for the name of her online store came from.

She's just starting, but she's destined to be successful. She's able to travel the United States and Canada (she's Canadian!) which allows for inspiration from hundreds of places and the ability to pick up unique products to sell (or keep, if they're truly fantastic!).

So go on over and check out her new blog. There are only a few posts right now, but there will be more. Follow her on Google, tell your friends and leave comments.

And Kel - when I'm ready to furnish my new place, you're invited for dinner so I can pick your brain. Oh, and take you shopping with me!

The Sarah + Bessie site is wonderful, and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Here's a cool article about "Design Sponge" aka Grace Bonney in real life, a blogger who's got a new book out.

Liked a lot of the ideas in the accompanying photos.

PS: to Kelly aka Sarah + Bessie: congratulations on your new endeavor/focus, but I was sad to see that you took "Lipstick Trucker" down.
