me : weekly loves

While looking through my Instagram pics this week and thinking about the bliggity blog, I put the two together and realized it's been a L-O-N-G time since I've done a "Weekly Loves" post. Time to remedy that. Right... now. 

I love the current project I have going on in my office. From picking out color combinations... 

... to putting the colors together to make a lovely Rain Cloud Mobile. This one is called "Pacific Rain". 

The mobile for BB's room. It's about to go over his bed. :)

I love my "new" { to me } typewriter. I've got a couple projects I want to do soon and I'll share those here when I do. :) 
And if you know the significance of this sentence, "You are a lone reed..." being typed on a typewriter, then you and I can be friends. 

I don't know why, but two weeks ago I was craving these things like crazy. Not that I eat them all that much, but for some reason I really wanted them. So I bought some. I ate half the pack in like a day. Then I let Joey help me finish them off and bought a new pack this week. This pack is surviving a lot longer. I love having something sweet and fruity around.  But they're not very diet-friendly, so I'm sure I won't be buying anymore for a while. 

I love my new Burt's Bees. I've been wanting some chap stick with a bit of shimmer or bit of color to it. So this week I bought this Burt's Bees, and I also bought Soft Lips Pearl. I can barely stop smelling the Soft Lips Pearl because it smells so good. But I feel the shimmer is too much and just a heavy, dark lip-liner away from being a bad 90's makeup job. { Think Spice Girls, Ginger Spice. } The Burt's Bees has a lighter shimmer and a minty smell. Both are better for this girl. 

The other morning it was slightly foggy out. The moisture in the air made everything smell wonderful, and it looked pretty awesome too. I love nature. As long as it means I can still sleep in a bed and use a real bathroom and shower. ;) I also love spring, mornings, spring mornings, Instagram, and life. And the fact that it's Friday and the weekend is upon us!

What are you loving these days?


  1. I love that last picture! Ooh those cookies look very appetizing! Might have to get me some this weekend!

  2. I've used that Burt's Bees lip shimmer before! I love how it's lightly scented.

  3. The rain mobile is awesome! Great mix of pictures.

  4. That last picture is something pretty terrific lady. I love, love, love the mobiles. So cute. And you're a girl after my heart applying my Burts Bees now!

  5. I love that you are so creative and I enjoy your blog so much.

    Your mobile is so pretty and BB will love it. How is that going?


  6. Think your rain mobiles are simply great - hope your little 'un likes it too!

    Just visiting from the Etsy Blog Forum - looking for Followers (I'm at near and yet so far!) and will certainly be following you from now on. Perhaps you'd care to visit me at and see how I made, mend and otherwise create the plushies I then try to sell at www.coldhamcuddlies.etsy.gom? Do hope so.

    Meanwhile, best of luck with your endeavours. Isobel

  7. Your mobile is so lovely! And I have a thing for Fig Newtons too - I could polish off a whole bag by myself!

    P.S. I bought your lipstick recommendation today!
