Things I Love Thurday and Lovely Links


I don’t want to start this of with a bunch of blahblahblah, so right on to the little and big things that made this week more wonderful.

  • You. Everyone reading my blog, commenting, and following. This little URL would be nothing without you.
  • Having coffee with a friend in a unique local coffee shop.
  • Writing a long letter to a friend who lives on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Six pages, front and back!
  • Sitting in the sun and reading, wearing lots of warm clothes. Maybe fall is coming after all… It reminded me of March, when I sat out there in a coat, soaking up the first powerful rays of sun…
  • Less than 70 pages to go in Thackeray’s Vanity Fair! I REALLY hope Dobbin and Amelia get married, they HAVE TO.
  • Running five miles – was planning on going three, but when do things ever work out as planned?
  • Rainbows, lots of them. Mother Nature is trying to make up for constant pouring… It is working.

On to some lovely links I came across this week: 
Pearl Top Tutorial Now I just need to find a top I don't really need anymore...
What does Freedom mean to YOU?
How to make a Summer Skirt.
Strength training: Upper Body.
DIY Fabric Flowers. With lovely pictures.
Lots of tutorials this week... Now I need to figure out when to do all that...

Wow, 6 pages f&b? That is massively impressive. Your friend will love this letter. I know i'd appreciate a hand written letter poted to me any day over an email. So old skool me, i know.

As for running 5 miles, well done! I can barely run 5km!

Great list of thing you enjoy! I would love to read the book you're reading-currently I'm reading "The Other Mr. Darcy" a sequel of sorts to "Pride and Prejudice". It's lovely.
