currently into...

A small portion of the things I love at the moment

♥ Flower crowns. They've been popping up everywhere I look! I made a pink rose one today that I'm quite proud of (photos coming soon) and it was so simple. It's amazing what a beauty you can create with just wire, florist tape and artificial flowers. 
♥ Some of the pictures that have been popping up in my tumblr feed have been truly breath-taking. One of my favourites is the balcony picture with beautiful blossoms hanging over the edge. It looks so pretty.
♥ Fairy skirts! As soon as I saw this picture I fell in love. The fairy-like skirt is made practical with a belt a sweet blouse.
♥ Mary-Janes! Still quite desperate to get my hands on some of these beauties. I love the thick heel on these tan ones. They remind me of Carrie.
♥ Book stores. One day I simply must own one. 
♥ Sending and receiving mail. Isn't it just the most exciting feeling slipping that envelope or package into the box? I really, really love getting mail and writing letters. 

Hope you're all having a great week so far!

Such pretty photos and yes, sending and getting snail mail is such a nice feeling! It makes you feel so special.

I actually hope to marry someone who owns a bookstore, because I want to own a boutique, hahahaha!

Hi Maria, lovely items! Mary Janes are my favorite shoe and those are awesome ones. Thought of you today when I heard a Lady Gaga song that started out..I met a girl in east LA in floral shorts, as sweet as May. Most ladies shy away from floral shorts but I can see you in some :o) I love florals too!

Mary Janes are also one of my faves type of shoes (I'm a big fan of anything like ankle straps). And I believe tumblr is such a great invention: there are always great inspiring finds to make there. Thanks for visiting my blog :) I will keep on visiting you your blog looks so lovely!
