Hello Yellow Songbird readers! I'm so thrilled to be here today doing a guest post for Kim while she's tackling the adventure of island living and teaching. You can usually find me over at Pure and Noble. Stop by sometime and say "hi!"


When Kim asked me to do a guest post, I thought...What in the world will I write about that will do her blog justice? Then I got to thinking of all the lovely things that Kim makes for her Oh, Sweet Joy shop and I knew right away what I wanted to share with you. I love looking at beautiful things. They inspire me. I think that's why I can get sucked into nature (sunsets specifically), blogs, and magazines so easily. There's such a dizzying array of colors, textures and shapes - I love it! Because there are so few inspiring print magazines out there these days, I catalog all the lovely things I find online into my pinterest folder marked, what else... "lovely things." I want to share a few of those images with you here today. I hope you are as inspired by them as I am. Enjoy!









Lovely right? The color palettes are so soft and pretty with a nice mixture of wood thrown in. I die. These tones kind of remind me of a nice soft sunset in the spring. It’s the little things in life that bring me the most joy sometimes. 

What are you loving right now? Is there a color palette that you favor? What season brings about your favorite colors and textures?

  6. Oh colour, love it!! Speaking of Fossil, we have it in Australia too & i love their satchel handbags, my eldest daughter has a yellow leather one too. I just love that in our cold Winter (in Canberra, it snows) we get your Summer range to keep some colour in the system. Love Posie
