Favorite Things Friday: Around the House

I haven't really been on the computer much this week, which honestly has been awesome. I feel so much more "human" when I am around people all day rather than hanging out on twitter or stalking Etsy. Getting out of the house for my new job at Anthro this week has been so good for my sanity!

However, being around pretty things all week has brought out some materialism that needs to be subsided. The last thing I needed was to search for MORE things that I want. That said, I wanted this week's favorite things Friday to be things around the house that are making me happy. 

1. My ranunculus plant. I've got this yellow pretty that has bloomed and another white one with some pink on the ends. I'm ready for the others to bloom!

2. Here's another sneak peak of our bedroom ((mini)) makeover. We bought some new initial letters to match our new bedding. FUN!

3. Handmade paper circle garland. It's so simple & pretty against the boring white walls in my studio. I bought some pre-made circle punches from a seller on etsy & sewed them all together. Simple & colorful. Boom.

4. My love for Blue Capri Volcano candles is no secret. Now they're in PRETTY jars rather than the bright blue containers. I'm obsessed.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
