10 Things I Love

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was SO cold, I hope everyone kept warm and had lots of hot chocolate!

Let's start the week off inspired!...

This is my first 10 Things I Love list. I have always loved seeing other blogs with these types of lists but to be honest, I was kind of overwhelmed by trying to find 10 things I truly think are awesome to fit in a blog post so I always just posted a few things here and there. But this was pretty easy and took only a few minutes to come up with the general list. I think I am definitely going to make this a weekly occurrence. Enjoy! :)

Doilies and lace-My favorite is white doily/lace on gray. I definitely want to make a blanket with lace edges. I have been inspired to use doilies on my Christmas packages this year.

Purple, yellow, black and gray together-I am decorating my living room, and I think this is the winning color scheme! I have already started with the black and wanted to add bits of yellow, but I think this is much more awesome! I might also add some chrome in there as well.

Crocheted snowflakes-My Memere makes the loveliest snowflakes! I am inspired to make a few of my own. However, I only know how to crochet a simple scarf...this might be a problem, they look so complex.

Pinecones-I have seen so many pinecone decorations lately! The ceramic ones are my favorite!

Embroidery hoop art-definitely another one on my to-do list! I love when there is a whole collection of different sizes on a wall.

Garland-I have been seeing a lot of garlands pop up lately, they are so cute! I made my first garland recently (The "Merry Christmas" one a few posts back) and have also tried making finger knitted garland, but I think I may need thicker yarn...

Faux Bois-Always on my favorites list! I have a few projects I am planning to do with faux bois.

Hair bows-I especially love the polka-dotted ones!
