Felty so Good

random love with craft supplies

I have a mild obsession with these things.  What is it about them that makes me happy?
I.don’t.know.

I just know that felt balls make me want to do a little happy dance, wearing pajamas with a belly full of hot chocolate.
They make me feel the kind of happy that makes you smile at strangers.
They make me want to live in a cardboard box house like this one.
And gaze at a mobile like this.
These felt balls make me feel that joy that absorbs you when brainstorming your child’s birthday present. Side note: guinea pig this year for his fourth? Hmmmn…

Anyway; that kind of happy, no?

I vote felt balls make good pets.

rain rain stay and play


It is a beautiful autumn day.  It’s raining!  Such an occurrence feels so unusual after a summer here.  In a city that boasts “300 days of sunshine a year”, suddenly everyone is relishing being able to wear layers and carry umbrellas. Love it.

I think the colder seasons require bursts of colour.  I love the bright blooms by emersonmade. The cooler seasons always require a burst of colour. I can picture a number of outfits that could do with a dose of cheerful, flowery goodness.

And I love a good umbrella.

Autumn Colours

I have heard that grey is the colour of the season, and while that sounds very sophisticated it tends to strike me as a tad boring.  Why dress and decorate to match the sky?  Where is the bounce in that?  I am pleased to see that some have a difference in opinion.  Hamburger Love talks up green, which I totally adore.

I can happily overlook the fact that she is talking up green “to lure in the spring”.  Green and autumn/winter go hand-in-hand as well.

While on the foreign thing, have I mentioned my newfound love of Norwegian and German blogs?  The more time you spend traversing the great scape of the blogosphere the bigger and more wonderful the palette of inspiration becomes.  Good Luck and Happy Little and Maganda got under my skin yesterday.

So yes, anyway, colours.  Love green.  And still love terrariums.

(how funky are these?!)

Also love yellow, especially when on blue.

And purple.  Who doesn’t think purple just compliments a wet and windy day (as is the case today) just perfectly.

Oh how I wish I owned this.  So sweet.  Why oh why is my birthday nowhere close by?
