simple things

it's time again for the simple things, with the most beautiful soul i know, christina, of soul aperture.



whimsical toys
antique stores
flea markets
used books
café latte



pine cones that mean christmas is coming
candlelight
the red starbucks cups
a discount on the discount
very old ship models



fernet branca on a sore throat
hot toddies with 8-year-old bacardi
another scheduled blog camp in january
60 mm macro lens
robots



stitching
a crackling fireplace
a fresh pot of tea
the smell of gingerbread
stacks of new fabric



a walk with a camera
a surprisingly balmy day
sunshine peeking through the clouds
poetry on the side of the plane
a surprise in the mail
christmas ornaments in a shop window



do stop by christina's for more simple things.

what are the simple things you love today?
