So…what inspires you?

Not too many responses to the “Show Your Stuff” post from last week?
OK…Spring is almost here and we all need to shake off the winter blues! So my question is what inspires what you design? For me it has to do with where I live. I also scan through too many magazines to count. Here is something I found in a Bloomingdales catalog that was at my sisters…I think these patterns are great!

What do you look at for inspiration? Don’t let me down!
