every single time i read this blog i get so inspired. kris's color stripes is filled with amazing inspiration. you can find an incredible amount of oh-so-pretty photos of patterns, texture, nature, vintage goodies, prints, and on and on. but it's all the amazing color that really draws me in. and finding it in the most unexpected places. it's perfect. as of now, kristina, the blog's lovely author, has moved on to another new adventure and blog but promises to still post her inspirations. and she happens to have an amazing little shop too.
