fun : a few favorites
Jess Gonacha : Bubbo
Hi Everyone -
It's winter in our neck of the woods and the short days can get tedious. One way to let the sun shine in is to surround oneself with things that are bright and cheery, which is the basis for today's list. Did you know that 14-0848 Mimosa is the Pantone color of the year? It's true.
I'm also on a self-imposed monthly spending budget of $99. So, my plan with these posts is to include wonderful treasures that are reasonably priced or free. I won't promise that I'll always be able to do it, but I'm going to try. Those that I photograph have been purchased over the last year or so. Have a sunny weekend!
Art : Jess Gonacha's gocco print is so sweet and I must admit that I sing that song to a certain someone from time to time.
Craft : I really love my Bubbo ledger even though I just can't bring myself to write in it. Natasha's attention to detail couldn't be more special.
Jewelry : Sweet Michelle of Blue Moss makes the most beautiful jewelry from vintage items accented with silk ribbons or seam binding.
Movies : Pixar's Up looks to be so much fun, as usual. Love those balloons!
Music : The Brilliant Mistakes is a new band to me and has the sweetest sound. Their MySpace page says 'The Brilliant Mistakes are a New York City-based band who specialize in radiantly melodic roots rock brimming with classic pop songcraft, vintage sounds and lush harmonies." Couldn't have said it better myself.
Shop : I recently saw Gift Card Exchange mentioned on the Very Short List website. Through their Gift Card Rescue program you can exchange an unwanted gift card (Home Depot) for one you might actually want to use (IKEA), or sell it at a slight loss for cash.
