Little Luxuries

Cherry blossoms.

Chocolate chip pancakes.

Watching my little guy neatly eat each
triangular column.

Sparkly polish.

Working with pearls.

Sun breaks.

Sucker for Flowers

At the Portland Saturday Market or Farmers Market, I swoon over the bouquets of fresh flowers! The ladies holding them sweetly let me take pictures of them (like this one). The images evoke the same sensation long after the beauties have passed.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hobbies & Addictions

Needle felting is soooo addicting! These critters are fun to make. The top is a giraffe (sans spots), then a snail and a birdie. My goal is to decorate my Christmas tree with an army of felted goodness.

Crochet Thread Lamps

I love crochet thread lamps! One crazy day I considered making them instead of jewelry?! What? Now I can have them shipped in from Filigree Creations. Sometimes I foolishly think I can make it all! A little ADD (thanks Dad).

Magazine Love: Sweet Paul

One of my favorite blogs, Decor8, introduced me to this lovely magazine. It's adorable (even if you don't have a little one)! I love where the kids are pictured by their current favorite food. My little one would be pictured by a plate of scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese and of course, hot dogs (aka franks). Find it here.
