A Few of My Favorite Things



Left to right, starting at top......

1. Honey and The Moon. I love, love this perfume spray by Tokyo Milk. "Sweet honey, sugared violet, jasmine, sandalwood." Yum! I got mine at Anthropologie.
2. Lace Ruffled Tunic ~ I'm digging anything with lace or crochet right now! This cream tee with lace trim was on clearance at Forever 21 for 11.99: 
3.  Vintage clock from an antique store next to ours. I love the blue color and the fact I have to wind it up!
4.  Fresh basil. This is the first year I have ever planted herbs. I cut up the leaves and toss in my pasta.
5.  Eric Church. This country rocker puts on quite a show!
6.  Burlap wrapped mason jars. I see these on tables at a country wedding, full of fresh flowers. Available in our All That Jazz space, 6.00 each.
 7. Metal leafy candelabra. I have two. This was once white, I spray painted it a brassy gold and use it to hang necklaces on in my bathroom.
 8. Team Jacob. Sorry, Eddie.
 9. Bottle Caps. I have a freaky addiction to this candy. Luckily, I don't partake very often.
10. Riley~ My horse
11. Fall decor. I can't wait to hit the fall flea markets and barn sales!
12. Cowboy boots and quilted purses. I have 8 pairs of cowboy boots (some vintage) and collect the faux-Chanel quilted purses. My latest was a 'lil white one for .50 at a garage sale!

What are some of your favorite things?

I LOVE rose-hips too! How often do you have to wind that clock and does it keep accurate time?
Love those jars. I am surprised more haven't sold yet.
