Things I’m Loving

Every now and then I post about a few “Things I’m Loving”. I’ve not been consistent with these posts but I enjoy them so much. I like being able to share a few moments of my life where I see beauty, creativity and an opportunity to just enjoy the world. I hope to be able to post about all of these moments more often- I’m aiming for monthly. Here are a few things I am LOVING right now.

The other day my fantastic barista made a little latte art atop my coffee.

Shout out to Lori at Awakenings Coffee in Hyde Park. Way to make my day!

This is a natural tumbled Turquiose and red coral beaded bracelet I made.My sister bought it as a birthday gift to her friend and apparently it was quite a hit. Yes, I’m tooting my own horn here. It just happens to be one of those pieces I wish I could have kept for myself :/

I actually had to wear rain boots last week instead of snow boots. Spring is in the air! These are my favorite and most comfortable rain boots. They are even a bit fashionable! {Chooka boots can be found here}

Ok, how adorable is this ceramic cream and sugar set {Pier1}? I could just die over it! simple and cheeky…just my style. I kind of wanted to get them to display on my new kitchen shelves!

My Aunt Kathy (Side note: Not actually my aunt. She’s my Dad’s cousin but that gets complicated and I’m close to her like an aunt) makes these darling refrigerator magnets out of upcycled wine corks!¬†She also makes keychains with them as well. I have a few magnets on my fridge and a keychain too. They can be personalized with charms and decorative paining. The Corcoran one is my fave- It’s my grandmother’s maiden name and O’s middle name. ¬†These would make adorable hostess gifts… so much more creative than a plain old bottle of wine. You can find York’s Corks here. Be sure to check them out!
