Shortlist #1

05/08/2011 § 1 Comment

I have to admit that I didn’t come up with the idea for this post on my own.  I frequently notice that there are little things in my life that may not warrant an extended discussion on here, but I’m momentarily all about them, nonetheless.  Inspired by Jessica and her “A Few Things I Love,” Diana and her “Things I Like Right Now,” and Lani and her “Currently Obsessing,” I give you my inaugural Shortlist:

Giles & Brother Hook Cuff: While I like the railroad tie bracelets by G&B, I really love the dainty feel of this cuff.

Sketching pencils and eraser: Spending a lot of time sketching and painting lately. (Fun fact: The only person that gets more excited than I do when I get new art supplies is my Mom.  Isn’t she sweet?)

Big Apple Red by OPI: The most perfect red ever, hands down.

My vintage Torcan fan: Picked this up from a lovely seller on Etsy.  While I still aspire to own a GE fan like the one my grandparents had, this one is a darling little member of the household.  Don’t let the size fool you, though.  It’s so powerful I have to make sure I secure it before turning it on!

“Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except bull-fighters.”  The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. Picked this up on the recommendation of Cooper.  Loving it.

A photo I picked up recently: How precious is his outfit?  I kind of wish he was actually wearing the hat…  Added bonus, the back of the picture is almost as interesting as the front.

“If you have beauty, come, we’ll take it,
if you have none, come, we’ll make it”

    Yes! Yes! Yes! That’s one of my all time favorites. I need to read it again asap. Maybe we should start a book club.
