Much Love Monday


Today I love: My heart shaped ice cubes (and tray). We bought this heart shaped ice cube tray from Ikea. As well as a fish shaped tray (for Jason....). Although they melt so quickly because they are quite small. But it still gives me a few seconds of pure joy to see little hearts melting in my drink.

Other things I'm loving this week.

* Watching Glee (before it comes out here in Aus!)

Breakfast after church...scones with jam

Curly side pony tails

My new sparkly bow headband.

My new knee high socks with diamontes and ribbon bows.

Our new buffet!!
We spent Saturday night putting this together. It took hours but it was fun. I haven't finished the decorating, I just took a few things to make it look less boring.
If you're wondering why I have a Menorah it was a gift from my parents at Christmas. It represents my part Jewish heritage (my great grandfather was an American Jew).

I just had to add this picture of my nephew Caeleb in his uniform for prep which he started this year!

Thank you for all your wonderful comments! I will try and do some pretty journal pages and share it here one time.
P.S. Just so you know I will usually reply to any messages in the comment section on your blogs. I find it easier to do.
P.P.S. And for more Much love monday head to Anna's blog.

Have a fantastic week!

Oh Gracie those socks are to die for I need a pair!
The buffet is gorgous too. I remember when we got our first place it took two days to build all the furniture, it was fun for the first couple of hours.
Your nephew is sooo cute!

Those ice cube trays are fab!

Scones for breakfast? Yes, Please!

Happy Monday, Gracie. We're still on Sunday evening here. Just heading out into the garden for a bit before coming back in for a cup of tea...

muchlove said...

Ooh, I want heart shaped ice cubes too!

Thanks so much for doing Much Love Monday again :) Just a little note, when you submit the link (next time), could you put in the thing you love (in this case: "heart shaped ice cube trays") instead of writing "Much Love Monday"? It's no big deal, but it's nice to see everyone's answer right away :) I'll edit the title for this week, but just thought I'd let you know.

Have a great week!

I sent you an e-mail a few minutes ago :D

I love the ice cubes with heart shape! I would probably feel sorrow for them and I am not sure if I could see them melting, I am more used to round ice cubes *ah ah*

My godson is almost six and he is going to primary school in September, I can't picture him there, there he has rules and has to behave and he thinks he own the world in the palm of his hand. I am already teaching him a few things and trying to free his artistic spirit with handmade things.

Much love,
Joana

Jen said...

Those ice trays are from Ikea? Oh how great! I bet the fish ones are adorable. There's an Ikea right by the Mall of America here in Mnpls, might have to make a stop there this week. Plus, I need some plants and girl, that place has some great live plants... cheap too!

jozen said...

Love the headband! I'm a big fan of hair bows, it reminds me of Gossip Girl.
