10 Things to make you smile


Hello my lovelies. I thought it would be nice to start the week off with a little list. I was inspired by the swap journal I'm making :)

♥ Cloud watching while walking home from the bus
♥ Unexpected Mail
♥ Random acts of kindness 
♥ Writing quotes on paper doilies with my Typewriter
♥ Friendship bracelets
♥ My afternoon hot chocolate to help me get through the rest of work
♥ Online 'window' shopping (which means putting things into baskets on websites to make me feel like I'm shopping)
♥ Planning a travelling stationery pack for my giveaway
♥ Pretty paper, tiny stamps and sweet letters
♥ The conversation I had with the Kikki.K girl about having special boxes full of stationery. I work towards that. 

What's making you smile this week? 

P.S. I know I am a little obsessed with stationery and mail.

I think stationery and mail are very healthy obsessions... especially since I share them! ;) And now I want a typewriter, so that's making me smile. Along with the idea of being completely unpacked in our new home. :)

The combine harvester humming away on the fields around our house is making me smile today! I love the busyness of the end of summer here in the countryside.

PS: I adore your typed doilies - very cute idea!

I love your happy list!!
This week I am loving spending so much time with my Miguelito before he goes back to school again :( I am going to be so sad, missing my little partner in crime.

I love everything on your list especially watching clouds and making out fun images :)

I want a typewriter and have been on the hunt for one :)

I had a conversation with a Kikki K girl about storing stationery in their boxes yesterday! I have a different box for my different stationery - stickers, ribbons, gift tags, cards, etc
