things making me smile...

this paragraph in pioneer woman's post on stuff she's learned about blogging:
2. Blog often.

Whether you write a sixteen-paragraph essay about the cosmic implications of a free market system, a one-paragraph description of what happens to your soul when you walk into your godforsaken laundry room, or a simple photo and caption, consider your blog a precious bloom that requires daily nurturing.
i heart that whole post. that one line really makes me laugh, though. i tell ya...

the fact that miss charla has blogged, for the first time in a while! [hello, old friends.]
so good to see her sweet self's writing populating the good old blogger dashboard.

this crazy coffee maker. thingy. whatever. i bet it costs somewhere in the upper side of 5k-10k. i. just. bet.
it's insane, is it not??

this repurposed barn.
i cannot say enough words for how much i really really really really like this.

yeah. i'm kind of sitting here in a state of shock, absorbing the wonder of it. 
maybe dress down the design of the interior decorating a little bit, more casual and not quite so design-looking but more homey, and i'll take it.
that light it out for something a little more normal looking. more classic.
in fact, just give me the shell of the remodeled barn. i'll decorate it. :P i do like that table, though.....

this lace.

it's so vintage-inspired. i love it.

and this.

take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter.

I thought the same thing when I saw that barn! I was amazed at how beautiful it became but I was not feeling the light fixtures! Haha.
and LOVE that LACE!!!

So true - blog often! It's so important. I think someday I would like to save off my blog and then get it printed and bound at lulu. com. Why not? It's my journal.
