Little Loves: Vintage Bird Playing Cards

Little Loves: A series highlighting in images the little things in my life that are beautiful, useful, or otherwise bring me joy.

My friend Elizabeth found these cards at an estate sale years ago and recently gave them to me. There are two decks: one yellow, one green, that come together in one little gold box.

Can’t wait to put them to good use in some friendly card-playing.

Happy Friday!

Little Loves: Hand-embroidered Day-of-the-week Tea Towels

Little Loves: A series highlighting in images the little things in my life that are beautiful, useful, or otherwise bring me joy.

Last year for Christmas, Gil’s Grannie sent us these beautiful day-of-the-week tea towels that she embroidered for us.

I didn’t know where to display them until we moved to this new house and I found this old ladder someone had left out back.

Grannie, of course, is aghast that we’re displaying them instead of using them as directed, but I’ll have to tell her to make less pretty tea towels if she wants us not to put them on display. ;)

Happy Friday!

Little Loves: The Worst Haircut Ever

Good Morning! Happy Friday to you all. For today’s “Little Love,” I have something a little different for you. Instead of being something around our home, this Little Love is actually on the internet.

Last year, an NPR reporter interviewed his two little girls about “The Worst Haircut Ever,” given to the younger one by the older one. This interview, which I think I originally stumbled onto through Facebook, is just pretty much one of the cutest things ever.

Some of our favorite lines include:

“So… you weren’t even looking?”

and

“That was really, really, really terrible, but… everyone does that kinda stuff, sometimes.”

Plus, both Gil and I pretty much daily refer to something as “Baad, badbadbad,” just like Sadie does.

Without further ado, The Worst Haircut Ever. Enjoy.

Little Loves: Bassett Hound Figurine (And Stocking Holder)

Little Loves: A new series, highlighting in images the little things in my life that are beautiful, useful, or otherwise bring me joy.

Our previous Landlady gave us this little Bassett Hound figurine before we moved away. She was rather taken with Otis.

Usually it sits on the ledge of one the high windows next to the fireplace, but for the holidays it has found a new purpose: stocking holder!

Happy Friday.
