Fired Up Friday

Happy Friday, dear readers! I hope you had a lovely week and have an even lovelier weekend planned. It's quite hot here (high of 106 degrees today, YUCK!) so we'll be stuck inside as always.

Here's my Fired Up Friday for this week. Don't know what Fired Up Friday is? (Where have you been? Kidding, I won't judge you. Much.) FUF happens every Friday here on my blog. I post things that have inspired me over the last week, whether they're a picture, song lyric, etc. Here's the things that have inspired me the most this week:

I love these lamps!

One of my all time favorite quotes, from Walt Disney

Don't you love this tree?

I got the Christina Perri album this week and I've been listening to it on repeat pretty much every day, all day. Here is a video of one of my favorite songs from the album called The Lonely. Both the video and the lyrics are beautiful and haunting. I especially love this line:
Broken pieces of
A barely breathing story
Where there once was love
Now there's only me and the lonely.

I have a character in the manuscript I'm currently working on that's going through a very similar situation, so this song speaks volume to me at the moment.

Well that's it for me, what's inspired you this week? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Groovy lamps!
    Inspiring for me this week - A's determination to beat her personal best at the school sports carnival. She placed in the 100m sprint :)

    Really good feedback from both my writing tutors.

    And vintage things, I'm off to a vintage market tomorrow, but in the meantime I've been perusing some funky local websites and drooling over brooches and such.

  2. I'm fired up about those lamps and that tree! I really want a house that fits the mood of that tree.
