10 things making me smile...

Thursday, September 08, 2011

1 // Pretty kitties with antlers! (also, buying an awesome rug from goodwill for 50% off their tag price is pretty great too.)
2 // Pretty nails.
3 //  Cute shoes all in a row
4 // Decorating my new iMac's keyboard to match the one on my macbook.
5 // Pretty stickers from Moo!
6 // Nature's amazing little details...
 pssst. those little feet belong to this guy in case you're curious...
7 // funny faces caught on camera.
8 // mugs covered in squirrels and filled with chocolate milk.
9 //  mushroom hunting with family and lingering behind so I can sneak photos of them...
10 // my mom's beautiful garden full of black-eyed susans. I want one just like it.

What's making you smile today?
xoxo!

  5. I think I am forced now to order some of those really cute stickers. I can't help myself, really ...

    Things that make me smile: ordered my business cards, now it feels official to work at my company.
    I sure hope some day I can order my own business cards of my own pretty little business. One can dream!

  6. My day didn't have a good start but what makes me smile (though it may sound silly) is the fact I have some awesome leftovers at home :)

  9. I love symmetry in nature, how the little caterpillar's colors on his suction cup feet match.

    I just posted some macro shots I took recently of insects. I don't mean to be "that blogger" who posts links to their blog, but because you also enjoy little details of insects/animals : http://kwillll.blogspot.com/2011/09/as-bzzz-y-as-bumble.html

    :D

  10. Where did you find the keyboard cover? It's lovely.

    Things making me smile today? Watching the BBC Comedy Prom one last time before it gets taken off iPlayer; there's nothing better on a bad day than Tim Minchin singing silly songs, and a beat boxer called Beardyman doing Pachabel's Canon!

  11. I'm loving all of your photos!! The keyboard pad cover reminds me of the watercolor trays I used to have when I was a child and still see on Etsy once in a while. Love it!!

  17. I too would like to know if it's hard to apply the keyboard cover and where you got it. It's so cool! :D

    As always your pictures make me smile and lighten up my day - it's been quite bright anyway though (not due to the weather, rain, grey and dull), since I have had a day off and got to do a lot of stuff here at home. :D

  18. Ahhh... this post is magical. Your photography really is amazing and I love seeing it grow. The shot of the caterpillar..... breath taking really. :) :) And I adore your nails. I'm about to paint mine and perhaps I'll steal your design a bit. :P -- Sea Marie
