collection, Christmas:

What is it about this time of year that just makes it the best? It’s so sweet and warm (even though the weather gets colder) and I am sure for many of you, your favorite time of year? I think it really is the most wonderful time of the year! With Christmas just a week away, I thought I’d put together a little collection of my favorite holiday photos.

Collection / Constellations:

A couple months ago, I did a constellation keyword of cool things you could buy. Today I’m sharing a fun collection of constellation-related images. I am loving constellations lately. There’s something so amazing when you look up into the night sky, isn’t there? I’ll always remember driving through Texas with a friend and just staring up into the star-filled sky, so in awe. I feel like here in Orange County we don’t have starry skies like maybe you do in the midwest or something. Too much smog blocking our view 😉

To think of the other planets, the billions of stars, the unknown and beyond. A galaxy too vast to explore – it boggles my mind! For me personally, I am reminded of a Creator and though I am but a tiny tiny speck in the whole universe, I am loved. and you are loved too, friends :) Hope you enjoy today’s collection – not as good as seeing the real thing, but amazing that camera’s can capture this!

Collection / Letters, Part 3:

For the last part of this letters collection, I gathered some fun + unique letters that have been sent through the mail. It is so fun to see how creative people can get with sending things in the mail! If you missed the other collections of letters, here are parts one and two. Seriously considering doing some sort of pretty letter pen-pal exchange after the response from last time so stay tuned for that next year :)

Collection / Letters, Part 2:

For the 2nd part of the letter’s collection, I thought I’d post some really lovely + pretty letters that have really been sent. Seriously, I probably spent about 3 or 4 hours just looking at letters. There are so many amazing bloggers who blog about the letters they send and receive. It’s really quite inspiring. I am ready to start a penpal club. Anyone want to join in? 😉

Collection / Letters, Part 1:

Today’s collection is of letters! There is something so wonderful about a handwritten letter. I think because snail mail is sent so much less since we have emails. You really have to be intentional about sending a actual letter these days! There were so many beautiful images of letters, I am breaking this up into a couple parts. Hope you enjoy this collection!

collection / gold:


Today’s collection is gold. I ran into someone the other day who said they didn’t like gold at all, they only wore silver. Are you a fan of gold or silver? Looking at all these images makes me want to have a big gold party 😉 Have a nice Monday friends.

collection / organize:

I feel like when I was a little kid, I was a fairly organized person. I had a spot for everything in my room. I even had a nail polish chart with that I made of my nail polish collection. Times were so simple when we were kids and our stuff was contained to a room. Now that I’m older, I have certainly accumulated a lot more stuff. and now that we have a house, I’m afraid I will accumulate even more since it is a lot more space to fill. (We haven’t moved in yet if anyone is wondering) Anyway. In a perfect world, my future home would be organized like all these lovely pictures gathered here. After seeing so many beautifully organized spaces, I am going to definitely try to get more organized! Are you an organized person? Or a messy person? Do you have a picture perfect home? Or do you accumulate little piles of clutter like I do? If you’re an organized person, I’d love to hear some tips on your secrets! 😉

collection / naturalist:

Hey friends! I’m back from my trip and ready to get back to blogging. Thanks to all the wonderful guest blogger’s who shared such lovely inspiration while I was away! 


Today’s collection is for the naturalist. Some things don’t need a whole lot to be beautiful. I love the simplicity of these objects. There is something so refreshing about nature, don’t you think? Hope you enjoy today’s collection :)

collections / yellow:

You guys all know I have a great love for yellow. Specifically mustard yellow 😉 Sometimes I think I like it too much and am attracted to things just because they are yellow but not necessarily because the item is cute or anything. 😉 Things just tend to stand out more to me if they’re yellow. Anyway, I thought it was high time I do another yellow post, it’s been a while since the last one. Hope you enjoy today’s round up!

collections / sheds:

Today’s collection is sheds! It is so cool how the boring old storage shed can transform into such a lovely picture perfect spot. I’d love to have a cute storage shed like any one of these in my backyard. I think I’ll take one of each: one office. one kids playhouse. and one cool hangout/lounge. Does anyone have a cool shed setup like this?
