Allred Design - Lori Allred Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on  Inspired by Pinterest.

LEATHER TASSELS I've been asked a ton since this episode aired where to get the tassels I used in the episode. Well you can purchase them from Blue Sky Supplies on Etsy. This link takes you the ones in this photo. They shipped quickly and I loved that I can trim these down to medium or short lengths.

and a notebook, generally called refills in the Midori world. There
are two sizes of Traveler’s Notebooks, the passport size and the regular size.
