I am so proud of my fellow blogger friends! This year in particular, we are seeing bloggers more than ever in mainstream media—on television, in shelter mags, and on the pages of their own authored books! Today I get to share with you my review of Miss Mustard Seed’s recently released book, Inspired You.
If you like Marian’s blog, then I guarantee you will LOVE her book! In the pages of Inspired You, she shares with us careful instruction, gentle encouragement, and gorgeous photography. She teaches us how to make chalkboards, sew pleated drapes, strip and finish furniture, and more. Marian also walks us through several handy tips:
- Turning your “befores” into “afters”
- Making the everyday beautiful—one room at a time
- Getting the best bang for your buck at antique shops, yard sales, and auctions
- Keys to decorating on a tight budget
In Marian’s own words:
“Let’s redefine what a beautiful home is. It’s not about big budgets and magazine-quality perfection; it’s about making the best with what you have and finding contentment despite what you don’t,” says Marian. “You don’t need a huge budget, a degree in interior design, or a boatload of DIY experience to create a beautiful home. Your journey can start today with what you already know, what you have, and whatever time your schedule allows.”
You can see for yourself a little sneak peek of the book below!
Marian is letting me give away TWO copies of her book to TWO lucky Home Stories A to Z readers!

Thank you Marian for inspiring us to move mountains in our home! I think I need to first begin today with my laundry pile and work from there *wink*!
