This little post is about sharing some of my “pretty things”.
Things I am currently using that are crafty and general things that I surround myself with simply because they give me joy. (the real things of joy in my life you see in my weekly Project Life spreads of course but you get plenty of that already)
I don’t plan to share a monthly list of things but just an occasional lot as I am inspired and hopefully they make you smile too.
Bed, Bath & Table
I am obsessed with that place and find myself drawn to it at least once a week in my lunch break at work. The shop if full of gorgeous linens, cushions, throws and most important plenty of pretty things that I find hard to resist. Most recently this yellow wooden “hello” sign & these milk bottles that I received for Mother’s day. I move them around the house almost weekly and smile each time my eyes are drawn to them.
Amy Tangerine Embroidery Kits
I’ll be honest I had some reservations about these. Sewing and me simply do not mix but I have come to love them and look for places to use them all the time. I have posted a few of my recent endeavours on Instagram and had some great feedback. They really are very versatile and easy to use. Even my five year old is getting in on the act! I’m even finding myself looking for different colour threads to use with them. I bought mine from Jodie at Polkadot Creative.
Mini Cacti Garden
Totally inspired by a post done by Kellie at Give a Girl a Blog. This is a blog I visit regularly and immediately knew I needed a mini cacti garden. Now, I am no gardening expert but figured “how hard can it be?”. This is my end result and I must say Im quite proud of it. Love seeing it in the house and also move it round the house based on mood and need.
Last lovely thing for this post is this thin adhesive cork. I have a lot of plans for this and some you will see in my upcoming Project life pages. You can cut it, stamp it & paint it & I love it. It’s thin but adds texture and warmth. I picked this pack up at my local scrapbooking place Papertrenz. There are a few varieties on the market. It’s nice and thin and I don’t mind that corky smell either.
Hope you enjoyed this first edition of “Hello Lovely Things”
