fun : a few favorites


Blissful Images : Karin Eriksson : Jewelweeds

Hi Everyone -

The traditional five senses are sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste and they're all covered in today's favorites. Although not entirely, lately I'm rediscovering some things I've had for a while and it's been fun. In particular, I've been listening to music and bands that have fallen off of my radar, including today's choice - Incubus. Maybe it all stems from a desire to cut back, or I'm getting old? Nah, can't be age ;). Have a nice weekend. Look around and find enjoyment in something you've loved for years.

xo, Cindy

Art
: Mrs. French's beautiful images provide blissful inspiration and often look like paintings.

Design : I recently read about Kegan Fisher and Liz Kinnmark who are the renaissance women behind Design Glut. They have a very interesting site with interviews of some well-known creatives (Swiss Miss) and a high-concept line of jewelry and housewares (love the Hookmaker and the Currency bracelet).

Ceramics : Karin Eriksson's functional ceramics feature wonderful enamel transfers.

Craft : Lovely scented lavender sachets from Jewelweeds feature the prettiest embroideries.

Music : I really love the songs Love Hurts & Dig by Incubus. Scott didn't feel well this week and it's hard to see a loved one in pain. He's much better now, and so am I, now.

Yums : I had Pringles the other day for the first time in years and they taste GREAT! The OCD in me loves how you can count out the portion (15 = 150 calories) and they're so neat and tidy.

Oh I haven't listened to them in awhile either! I love re-discovering old tidbits of life. I'm cleaning out a closet tonight, so who knows what I'll find. Great post Cindy!

What a lovely post Cindy! It is lovely to take time to think about what pleases all of our senses. I totally concur about the nostalgia of music (although it is not because we're getting older!) and I just convinced my husband to download a few albums we listened to together when we first met.

P.S. I too love Pringles and may just need to buy a can after a 5 year hiatus :)

I love rediscovering things again and again...it goes hand in hand with my simplify mantra for 2009. :) Beautiful photo and post. Have a great weekend!

Pringles are pretty good, even though I have to do the "mom frown" when asked if we can get them. What a pretty sachet- I enjoyed looking at all her wares.

I like this post, Cindy! A nice little hodgepodge of inspiration. I love Are You In by Incubus...so good for a nice, long drive.

A couple of days ago, during a long train ride, I listened to music I didn't listen to in a long time. It was weird how all the sensations and feelings of "old times" instantly came back.
I went through several mood swings on my train ride... ; )
I love the picture, by the way!

This was such a fun post to read over--what a great idea, pulling together inspiration for the five senses. And your post made me remember how much I used to like Pringles--they're delicious.

I was having a case of the Sunday evening blahs...then I tripped upon this...I find it strange how I like the photo of my photos more than the originals? It must be the lovely pieces surrounding them and the words you used to back them up...thanks again my dear...xo t

Michelle Brunner said...

Great picks! I love Mrs. French's photographs! She has a great eye! I will have to check out the other recommends...I'm sure they are great! As for Pringles....yum...anything in chip form will do for me! Have a lovely day!
