As many of the reviewers for this book I too am a follower of Miss Mustard Seed's Blog and I was excited to hear that she was publishing a book. I enjoyed the book (it was a quick and easy read) - I just wish it had a few more project ideas. Since she is known for redoing and refurbishing vintage finds I thought the book would be more a "how to" or at the very least give more direction on how the reader can accomplish this kind of creativity in their own lives and home. I guess unlike some of the other reviewers I was less interested in her personal life (especially her dislike for laundry) and more interested in her creative process. But perhaps her creativity isn't something that can be taught - she does have a keen eye and a wonderful style that are reflected in the photos of her home. This book would be great for a person who is a beginner crafter or who lacks confidence in their own decorating style - she does a great job of encouraging individuality and instilling a sense that your home can be an expression of YOUR personal likes and not be a cookie-cutter imitation of everyone elses home.

Even if you follow Miss Mustard Seed's blog, which I do, this book has tons of gorgeous photos not seen on her blog. Miss Mustard Seed has the most wonderful decorating taste and a keen eye for beauty. She writes with her usual down-to-earth style and keeps it real about expectations. The tutorials are wonderfully done and she takes us through the step-by-step process of how she transformed her own house into a lovely home. As always, her photography really captures the feel for her displays of items such as white ironstone, old books, and grainsack upholstery. There's also inside tips for bargain hunting which Miss Mustard Seed shares with the reader. Her transformations taking a worn out dresser to painted piece of art are stunning. Not only a good read, it's a great book to keep handy for inspiration for your own home.

Delightful book on decorating with found objects. Very charming writing. It is however similar to what you will find in other cottage type decorating books. Did enjoy some of the how to sections. You can of course find a lot of this on the internet.

I was fortunate enough to purchase an autographed copy of this book Inspired You: Letting God Breathe New Life Into Your Heart and Home from Miss Mustard Seed herself this past weekend and so I of course came right home and began reading it. I'm thrilled to report that I haven't been able to put this book down! In true Miss Mustard Seed style there are lots of practical projects - DIY framed chalkboards, a tufted headboard, faux grain sack pillows, how to make an ottoman and so much more. Of course no Miss Mustard Seed book would be complete without great tips on how to refinish furniture so yes, they're in there too plus tips for going out and finding pieces with potential so you can roll your sleeves up and jump right in! But probably most special of all is how Marian shares her heart - her encouragement about how a home doesn't have to be perfect to be your haven. It is so... freeing! Her love for helping and encouraging readers leaps off every page and you can't help but be uplifted. I love it so much that I've already ordered 2 more copies from Amazon to give as gifts this Christmas but may need to order more!! Whether you have ever read Marian's blog or not (and if you haven't you so should!!) you will LOVE this book if you have any desire to truly be happy in the home you live in even WITH all it's quirky imperfections!! And if you are a follower of her blog you will be delighted to know that this is ALL NEW content in the book! Yippie!!! As a blogger myself I can tell you that's no small feat! Get it, you'll love it!

I pre-ordered the book as soon as It was available for pre-order here on Amazon. When it arrived I got to sit down and read it from cover to cover and look at the amazing pictures. I have to say that it is FABULOUS! I've been a huge fan of Miss Mustard Seed and what she does for a long time and have followed her blog for a long while as well. While her talent is incredible and what she envisions for a piece is amazing, I was most impressed with the heart she pours into this book. It is truly inspiring to hear how she approaches things in life and, the gentle reminders she placed in the book to keep focus on what is truly important. It is such a blessing. For me this book truly lives up to its title.

When I received this book I flipped through it and immediately started reading it. I couldn't put it down and read the book cover to cover in two days. I enjoyed the the ease of the author's writing and how she made me feel that I am able to love my home even if everything isn't how I want it to be. Her book has given me the encouragement needed to start working on all the projects I've been saying I want to do or learn how to do.

As a follower of Miss Mustard Seed's blog, I was thrilled to hear that she was coming out with a book. It does not disappoint! Beautiful photography blends well with Marian's philosophy of accessible decorating. Instead of speaking in lofty terms, she makes the reader feel capable of transforming her home. Pictures not previously seen on her blog, as well as faith-filled, encouraging writing make this book a must-have. As a blogger herself, the author is aware of the pressure that some women feel to have "magazine-worthy" homes, and much of this book addresses that pressure in a gentle yet direct way. If you like a "reclaimed" look in your home, and are not afraid to get your hands a bit dirty, this is the how-to for you. And...be sure to check out her fabulous blog, as well! :)
