Monday Morning Inspiration: From Feast Fashion Faves

Happy Monday!  Today's Monday Morning Inspiration post comes from Amanda over at Feast Fashion Faves.  Amanda has a beautiful, unique blog and a unique spin on all things food and fashion.  We also recently discovered we were both Tri Deltas in college!  Too crazy. 

Hi Everyone! I'm Amanda from feast.fashion.faves, and I am so excited to share some of my current inspirations! I just recently got on the Pinterest bandwagon and been loving every moment of it! It is seriously the greatest tool for finding inspirations in all places. Enjoy!
Whether it's an authentic bento box at a Japanese Restaurant or a handmade lunch bento box, I just can't get enough! Making a bento box for a meal is a great way to have equal proportions of everything, and that way you  won't miss a bite from being too full. I was surprised to find so many creative and fun designs that went into making bento boxes...such as the snowman design below. Make your own bento box by using a rectangular plastic container, such as tupperware, or a muffin tin!

 I've been brewing a lot of tea lately, but not in a teapot, because I don't have one! So I was delighted to  stumble upon so many pretty and exquisite teapots, so maybe I can finally pick one up. Utilize teapots as a vases as well, they are such a lovely way to display flowers.

 I adore the natural and raw look of tree branches, so much so that I love using them to display jewelry or just alone for room decor.


I absolutely love vintage frames! It's so much fun to peruse a garage sale or thrift store and discover these beauties. Depending on the condition in which the frames are found, you can re-paint, re-purpose, or simply display them!

Ribbons, ribbons, ribbons galore! I must have a stockpile of ribbons in my craft box! Aside from using ribbons for sewing purposes, there's a myriad of other uses for ribbon such as braiding it into your hair, making a pretty mobile, or to wrap presents and more!
