three things i love.

5.24.2011

{one.} Carlotta's beautiful blog. It's a lovely little corner of the blogosphere. A menagerie of breathtaking photographs & happy things.

{two.} Ampersands. And the fact that I can finally write {draw?...write?...} them. They no longer look as if I was just testing my pen to see if it works. Yes, they were that bad.

{three.} Origami wishing stars. There's just something so magical about capturing your biggest dreams into tiny little stars. I've been keeping a mason jar full of 'happy stars'. Written on the inside of each star, is something that makes me smile, whether it's something as simple as 'teacups' or 'vintage cardigans', or something that means so much to me. 'Being with family', for example.

Well, I believe I hear a cup of sun-tea calling my name! I hope your week is splendid.

PS. Thank-you so much for all of the wonderful book suggestions!

  2. Those origami stars are so cute. I'd like to learn how to make them. :) And of course ampersands are the best. Love those shoes, too.

  3. I'd never heard of origami wishing stars before, but I think I'll have to start a collection too! They look beautiful.
    I still can't draw ampersands. They end up either as an 8 or an infinity symbol--pretty lopsided!

  5. Aaah, the origami stars! I use to have a big jar of colorful ones in my room, and before I'd go to school I'd always pick one up and read it, and out came something nice. :) I need to make more soon, haha!
