I find that I either look outward; to museums or architecture or landscape maybe... or inward (sort of) to my own family history.
We're the sort of family that doesn't get rid of stuff - so I have my Granny's sewing box and my great great grandmother's sampler - that she stitched when she was eight years old.

Maybe they'll inspire me to do something sweet and a little old fashioned for the love of my life - how about that!
