Dear Photo Diary | A Smiling Cup

Pile of stamps out again
Tulips + Needle holder

Dear Photo Diary, I decorate my life. Flowers on the table, flowers in every bush outdoors. Wood anemones. The pile of vintage postal stamps was out on my desk again, as I finished my postcards. They are sorted, re-sorted, loved.

My white needle holder stands guard in the book shelf, because I now use a tiny needle pillow on the living room table more frequently. I embroidery at night, or in the morning when I have my coffee. Or I write, like last week, when I was at cafs half of the time. Writing.

Vintage book paper / bokomslag

Mom thrifted a whole roll of vintage book paper. Never even used. The best part is the yellowed owl label. Owls fly my way constantly these days. I’m thinking I need to tell friends and family to stop buying me owls. Maybe I will.


For now I drink coffee, and journal. Or knit. And every time I bring out my green smiling cup, I smile.

Smiling Coffee Mug

These are a few of my favorite things. What things do you surround yourself with that makes you smile?

    That green smiling mug is so cute, and the face appears to be scheming something…full of mischief! It’s a perfect way to start a day. Some of my favorite things are MY favorite mug, which has a pear on it, my elephant book-ends, and a giant stuffed zebra. ;]

    I surround myself with pens. Love my colored pens and markers and pencils! A rainbow of colors! Pens and paper. And my inspiration board with all the wonderful art I receive from others. Color I surround myself with color!

    Love your mug.

    I’ve never seen one of my books in someone else’s photo, before…it took me a few seconds to actually realise what I was looking at, and that I hadn’t taken the photo. LOL Thanks for the tiny little squee-moment that your post gave me! Such a warm, fuzzy feeling to see it sitting on your desk, surrounded by your own trademark creative mess, and obviously being used and loved. <3
