Happy Thursday, readers!
Mine is made a little brighter by daydreaming about a few wishlist items, such as:
1. These two painfully gorgeous dresses, The Deco Pocket, and Bird by Dona Monroe at Steven Alan
Oh, where is $360 dollars when you need it :P I also love this description of her collection, "Designed for the discerning woman seeking something unique, New York-based designer Dona Monroe's collection is driven by vintage silhouettes, while her obsession with cinematography and fashion from 70's films influences nearly every collection."
Ah, someone finally gets it! :D
2. This Quote by Maya Angelou.
I agree with this, so much. I struggle with bitterness every day and know just how destructive it can be. I'm also so tired of everyone looking upon anger as some irrational fanatical response. Anger is just caring about something so much your heart spills over.
3. These two twisty necklaces.
4. This completely crazy beautiful bird's egg clock tutorial that I am SO excited to do :D
You don't even understand. I love this clock so much.
On a slightly different note, I also love this childrens book, you may remember it.
It's the story of a Mom and her son. I don't remember most of it, except that the Mother would hold the boy and say, "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be." Then, after the boy grows up and the Mother becomes frail, he holds her and says, "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my Mommy you'll be." At the very end of the story, the mother passes away and her son is the father of a little girl, rocking her to sleep; singing the same song that his mother used to sing to him.
It's sappy as heck, but makes my cry forever every time. I love you Momma!
This concludes the June 16th edition of Things I Love Thursday, stay tuned for next week :P
Have a lovely day, readers!
