You know that feeling when something great unexpectedly happens? Like finding a stowaway five dollar bill in the pocket of your jeans or checking out at a cash register and seeing that something is cheaper than you thought?
Or, in my case a few days ago, discovering a gift card from last Christmas that I hadn’t used yet! And then using that very gift card to buy the brooches that I’ve been wanting to make into Juju charms for the last month…
I love that feeling, y’all.
All week, I’ve been in the mood for pretty and ruffle-y and luxe and sparkly… Besides my newly sparkly, fabulously bejeweled shoes, here are some pretty things delighting my heart today:
My new sweater from anthropologie (it’s an early birthday present)… gorgeous, isn’t it? I just love the embroidery and the cozy wool and the gorgeous botanical flowers. Chances are if you see me this week, I’ll be wearing it… Let me know if I begin to stink, ok?
Ruffles and pom-poms on my almost-finished stocking… I know that ruffles won’t always be as in vogue as they are now, and I know that in a few years I’ll want to make new myself a less ruffled stocking (and at that time I will), but for now, I am loving loving LOVING the frilly goodness of my nearly-done stocking. And just so you know, Adam’s and Burke’s stockings don’t have ruffles on them… Adam was a bit anxious when he saw the explosion of ruffles on mine, so in case you shared his concern, be reassured- theirs are very manly.
Another Craft from the Stash Handmade Holiday Gift Guide is up for tomorrow… until then, any pretty things that are delighting your heart?
