*revised* favorite things

First of all, I am a girl and can change my mind. There, I said it. 😉 I haven’t given up hope on documenting my favorite things, and I will continue to take photos of goodies as I find them. I’ve found it difficult to really capture those things I truly LOVE. Really, how often do you come across a gorgeous piece of handmade jewelry that just screams STEAMPUNK!  In real life… once in a blue moon. However… since I am a pinterest addict, I decided the perfect way to show you all about ME was to create a “10 favorite things” board on pinterest and point you to it.

10 of my favorite things on pinterest

Please note that there is already MORE than 10 individual pins in this folder. So, for reference, here’s my official list of 10 of my favorite things that I jotted down on a cute piece of pink Hello Kitty note paper… 🙂

1. polka dots & stars
2. rust, moss, and grungy texture
3. antiques, including old toys and cars
4. red/pink/teal
5. typography
6. handmade stitching
7. nature
8. steampunk
9. anything Japanese and cute (kawaii, anime, chibi)
10. unique accessories

There ya have it! If you have not yet experienced the blissful time-wasting goodness of pinterest, just let me know and I can send you an invite to join. 😉 I’m sure I’ll be adding more to this board over time, so feel free to follow me!

Hooray for week one of my favorite things challenge! It was a little more difficult than I thought it would be. I didn’t get a chance to visit my FAVORITE store – Real Deals. They carry TONS of fun home decor, and have an entire wall of metal stars. *love* I did make it over to the Portland Ikea, and ‘spotted’ some polka dot curtains (har har), but I was in a bit of a hurry, so didn’t get any photos of them. So here it is: my polka dot & stars collage. Some of these photos are from around my house, and a couple were taken at Craft Warehouse. On to week 2!

So I’ve had a few opportunities this week  to sit and think. I ended up writing down a list of 10 of my favorite things. Then after pondering my list, I thought, “hey, I should try to find all these things and shoot them!” So, that is my challenge. I am photographing one topic per week, every day if possible, in order to really get creative and find examples all around me of all those things that say “ME”. I will post my photo collage of everything I find at the end of each week. What a great way to really be grateful for all our blessings – even little everyday things like cute polka dots. 😉


Ready? Week 1: polka dots and stars
Final photo collage will be due on each Thursday – my week 1 will be due on Aug 4.


Feel free to join me! Just take a few quiet moments and jot down a list of some of your absolute favorite things. Number your paper from 1-10 (or more or less, it’s up to you!), brainstorm, and then get out there and take some photos! Please comment if you’re joining me in this challenge. I’d LOVE to see what you come up with!

I’ll tell you all about it in an upcoming post. 😀

Just for fun… here’s a relaxing shot I caught tonight… ahhh…
