What I Love - May 29th, 2013

Ok, so I couldn't wait until Monday to post more.

What I Love - May 29th, 2013

1. Dahlhaus

Why I love it: With the soft and bright colours, geometric shapes, and curvy wares, this pottery is at the top of my list.

I currently own the poppy mug, which is on my glossy (sorry Kim, I like it that way!) desk at work:

Blue Poppy Mug


2. Chris Stiles Wood Working:

I came across this beautiful wood working at the Spring Fling in Vancouver.
Why I love it: I can't stop thinking about this ice cream scoop! He is making more for the June 7th show in North Vancouver - some in cherry wood! What a perfect gift for Father's Day, or any day, really...

Also, check out his Etsy shop - he has FANTASTIC response time.

The thing with gifting I have discovered - plan ahead! You know that birthday is coming up, you know that Mother's Day comes once a year - why not get the card/gift when you think of it? Then you're good. Everyone's happy. You are, they are - it's a wonderful thing.

How much stress goes into last-minute gifting?

Also - if you find a "perfect" gift for so-and-so - get it then! Or plan on doing it sooner! Just get it!

I have learned this the hard way. Key points:

1) remember where you have put what you bought
2) remember you have already bought something
3) you do not need to buy more!

Bring on the rain!

It's a Secret - Knitting this Week

I have just finished the cutest thing on this earth - well, knitted, that is. But it's a surprise. For a little baby who will definitely be a future knitter.

More photos once the gift has been received.

Keep you in suspense!

Cutest daisy button from Button Button!

1.  Seva Fitness

2 very passionate ladies who want to make a difference, change your life habits.

Why I love them: they are personal trainers. With a focus on the personal. If you're in Vancouver, and are in the mood for a group, personal, or challenge training session, check them out.

2. Bloom Essentials

A boutique neighborhood spa in Vancouver, it is fun, friendly, and quaint.

Why I love it: hand-painted nails in fun designs for your footsies and fingatips. It's a place to get a pedicure and feel pampered, not serviced. Also, a great place for fun girly products.

Happy Monday! Over and out.

New: What I Love

Blogging has always been a project.

And I am notorius for starting projects, and just not quite following through. Why? I get bored. Or, I get too involved, too complicated, that it's too much to handle.

Looking at other fave blogs I love, I realized I am a short-and-sweet kind of girl. I need a burst of inspiration, lots of photos, and to-the-point "reading" material.

I have my novels, I get them from the library. And I love them.

Blog reading is totally different.

In the world that is too fast, everyone is trying to slow down. But who has time for that when reading a blog? Life is too short for slow electronics, that's what I say.

So, in this mindset, I have joined the Twitter (pronounced "Twitta") movement - nice little 140 character packages. I would rather use majority of my time to gather life experience - researching, working, connecting, knitting!, and progressing. Onwards and upwards, I say!

Onwards and upwards!

I am a woman of lists.

- 1 blog post every Monday (because we all need a little inspiration on Mondays)
- a new column called What I Love.
- knitting, reading, life comments, etc.
- lots of photos

One thing you'll notice about me in my photos. I love my Lululemon navy blue/purplish hoody. I will probably be buried in it. It is washed often. Don't judge.

Question of the week:

What piece of clothing will you be buried in?

Nice to meet you (again).
