Mood Boards for Fun and Profit: Sarah's Challenge and Susan's Contest


I interrupt my own series on decorating with collections to bring you news of two fun blogger diversions...

Having taken over the helm of Mood Board Monday with PK's blessing and encouragement, Sarah at Pewter+Sage recently announced the next challenge. All set to host on her beautiful blog, Sarah's inspiration pieces are Christmas pillows, one of which you see above. Take a look at this post, choose a pillow to build a room around and put a board together. Sarah's just-for-fun MckLinky party is scheduled for Monday, December 7th.


Another mood board challenge is being hosted by Susan at Love Where You Live. Not only does Susan write a pretty great blog, she also owns a home furnishings boutique in Colorado called The Green Plum. Susan's challenge is actually a contest! With some really nice prizes from her store. Go to this post to see the inspiration items—including the charming chair, above—she'd like to see incorporated into a mood board room and to read the contest rules. Entries must be received by Saturday, December 5th.

I'll be participating in both mood board challenges. Will you?

To see what Mood Board Monday is all about, go here and here. If you're anywhere near Salida, CO, stop by and say hi to Susan. You'll find info about her shop here.

I'd love to take part in these. For some reason (time of year maybe?) I feel I'm playing catchup in real life so I might need to rein in my virtual life a bit!
Love the pillow. :)

Sarah, agree with you on the chair. I can see it either in a baby's room or in a living room.

Now, do I have the time to do this now? Guess we're all feeling the time pinch as the holidays take off!

Love both of these inspiration items! I would love to participate, but I would say I'm not at this point and that way if I can it will just be a surprise rather than the other way around. House full of company coming this week and too many things to do this time of year. Happy Monday!
