my favorite things

the blog 320 Sycamore has been doing a "favorite things" link up so i thought i'd share mine. this is a list of my "material" favorite things because nothing measures up to my family or my Savior. :) so without further delay...

these are a few of my favorite things...

1. The Gap Heaven Perfume
i have been wearing this perfume for about 15 years! i cannot find another one that i love as much anywhere! it has such a clean sweet smell and definitely doesn't break the bank. :)

2. Tim Holtz Distress Ink
i use this ink on EVERYTHING! i especially love the "vintage photo" pad but they are all lovely.

3. Rustoleum Painters Touch Spray Paint

this is by far the best spray paint that i have used. being a new furniture restorer (if that's even a word) this paint is the easiest to use and comes in beautiful colors. my favorite is the heirloom white.

4. Starbucks Soy Chai Latte

not much to say about this one other than it is heaven in a cup!

5. Caldrea Plum Nutmeg Soaps from Target

These are a new find and new favorite! They smell delicious! I use the hand soap, dish soap and countertop spray. mmm!
6. The Twilight Saga
i am not a big reader but these books kept me captivated! love the movies too!!

7. Making Memories Slice Die Cut Machine

i just recently got this and i am in love! the perfect handheld die cut machine!

i really don't think this favorite needs an explanation :)

9. Pumpkin Cheesecake

all i have to say is that if you haven't tried must!

10. Vintage Finds
i should have been born in a different era...i love anything old. i feel like it just makes your house so warm and cozy.

thank you for looking at my favorite things! hope to see some of yours too!!

my numbered bedroom dresser

i have had an oak dresser since i was in jr. high, so i finally decided to paint it. for those of you who have followed my blog, you know i am obsessed with numbers. once the dresser was painted, it still felt like it needed a little something so i painted gold numbers on the drawers. it may seem quirky to some, but i LOVE it!
