Here are some images I’ve collected over the past week that give me joy. Feel free to share what you love with me anytime via email, if I use a reader tip, I’ll credit you with a link back to your website or blog.
This image is making its way around the blog circuit, but it made me happy so I had to bookmark it here. It’s a terrific budget option for adding interest to walls. You could even make these two-sided and suspend from the ceiling with fishing wire to create your own textile mobile or freestyle art. I’ve seen hoops used alone to decorate walls, but this is such a clever way to display textiles that are an important part of either your family history or ones that simply make you happy. I see these displayed over a bed, don’t you? (from purl bee via love forever. update: also blogged on happy mundane.)
These images came to me from the gorgeous floral design blog House Martin. This blogger is in the process of launching a new store, Ink & Peat in Portland, OR. It’s fun to read as she begins the journey of taking her dreams into retail. Don’t we all long to open a storefront of our very own? (via reader Carlene – thanks so much!)
See you on Sunday, I’m heading to the coast with my family. Make it a great Saturday everyone, do something that you can feel good about. Call a friend, rearrange your furniture, buy some fresh flowers, prepare a colorful meal, take a relaxing bath… Refresh, unwind, enjoy!
