Today I am happy to share just some of the things that bring me a tiny bit of joy every day, some seemingly boring, others a little more fun. Let’s start with this photo that I found on my friend Christine Ganeaux’s Pinterest board, which made me go on a wild goose chase to find a similar scarf, that really is so nothing until you picture it like here. I found this silk one and opted for the brown (I know I will eventually get black too), and plan on throwing it on when I need a little extra something. p.s. Christine got one too!My favorite floral vase from Chinatown, that I had since I was like 22 or something, literally fell over on its own one night and smashed all over the floor (it was eerie to say the least, let me tell you). So I upgraded to this simple white number and use it every single time I buy flowers or eucalyptus (which looks super fetching in it).
I’ve written about them before, but I’ve yet to find a more satisfying sock than this cable guy from Smart Wool, It’s warm yet thin enough to not make your shoe go all tight, and I especially love them with my Old School No. 6 clogs. p.s. they stay put on the heel, too.
Another repeat, but worth another mention: My favorite mask is this Forbidden Fruit Liberty print one and made sure to have a few backups. I have the teenage size which fits my face perfectly, and the nose wire helps it stay put.
When this paring knife is dirty in the dishwasher I have to pull it out and clean it because, even with a drawer full of knives, there really is no substitute for cutting everything from apples and carrot sticks to garlic, to you name it.
I’ve been turning to this Uniqlo neck warmer for a few winters now, and not only is it super soft, it also looks cool and you can lift it so it covers your ears or your face with it when need be (which is often these days).
I buy this Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray a few at a time because we use it like Pam, and also to coat asparagus or French fried baked potatoes before cooking, and on toast, every single day.
And last but not least, my beloved Le Pens that come in lots of fun colors — I like black, dark brown, gray and a really good teal blue for everyday use and the others for making handmade cards with Gino. Also, there is something so ’70s about them that is hard to resist.
