lots of good stuff going on right now. i have lots to be grateful for. lots to love. just lots of lovelies. steven calls me his “list-y lady” since i am always writing lists for EvErYtHiNg, i figured its about time for one of my favorites list on my new blog. so enjoy.
the lovely list (simply sarah basics to add love and sparkle to your life)
*my new journal. gotta love target. its simple. its basic. but it gets filled with 3 pages each morning about me and my life. and the sweetest part? they now come in pink.
*zig millenium pens. not just for scrapbooking, these fabulous pens come in all sorts of sizes, perfect for your handlettering and journaling. be sure to shadow!
*vanilla scented candles. i have to admit, i stock these babies like they’re going outta style. i love the $10 value pack at wallyworld of all the pillars. i keep at least 2 packs in my closet all the time. (just in case the power goes out or romance is sparked)
*french music. i have no idea where i found this cd of french cafe music but it totally lightens my mood and inspires me to get out my french dictionary and start sputtering out words. one of my intentions this year is to learn french. (and next year…go to paris and speak the language)
*love actually. i love this movie. i can sit and watch it over and over again. its a classic feel good about love. plus it has a bunch of british folks in it, so i gotta love the accents.
*somethings gotta give. another one of my favorite movies. i love all the imagery in this movie, that would totally be my beach cottage if i could afford to live in the hamptons.
*sepia photography. i have ventured away from my standard black and white and i am not sure i will go back anytime soon. i am loving the brown and antique-ish tones and how fabulous they look with all of my vintage style papers
*white roses. i bought myself a pretty little bouquet of spray roses this week, they are extremely pricey this time of year, but so worth the extra few bucks. seeing them makes me smile. smelling them makes me smile. i can’t wait to have a garden of my own.
*pink and green color combination. i have been using this for ages, but i found some new tones recently and it totally re-sparked the love affair. i have been creating up a storm in my studio and all of my favorite pieces have included these two colors together.
*a comfy chair and ottoman. i am CRAVING a place of my very own to sit and write, read, browse, meditate and just be. i have wanted an oversized, overstuffed and overfluffy chair and ottoman set for what feels like forever. i think this is the week i actually buy it.
*pearl covered photo album. so what thats for wedding photos. it makes me happy. and thats what is important. i filled it with 75 of my favorite photos, all printed in black and white and it will one day sit in my sweet little nook.
*sweet little nook. every gal needs a place to call her own. i am gonna create mine, in the corner of my studio. a comfy place to sit, a pretty table and lamp, photos and a spot for fresh flowers.all of my favs in one spot. a little place of my very own to just be.
good stuff. well i am off to primp and all that lady like stuff. going to a superbowl party with my parents at our best friend’s house. have a lovely day. and make your own lovely list. i am sure to add to mine very soon.
