Brothers Joseph Michel and Jacques Etienne Montgolfier were inventors of the first hot air balloon. They used the smoke from a fire to blow hot air into a silk bag. The silk bag was attached to a basket. The hot air then rose and allowed the balloon to be lighter-than-air.
What inspires me about these flights of fancy? I love the shape and colors of the balloons. I created this pair of earrings to pay tribute to the shape of the hot air balloon and basket.

I confess a fear of heights, but I do think I would love to travel in a hot air balloon over a grand vista like the Grand Canyon or Sedona. Does ballooning inspire you enough to give it a try?
