A while ago I blogged about the little things around my place that make me happy, a dish of jewelry, stacked books, even small canisters in the bathroom. I've always been drawn to the little vignettes that style my life, but I never knew exactly why I found such pleasure in setting up these little scenes. This weekend I spent a lot of time relaxing and thinking about all sorts of design related events (weddings, portfolios, even business ventures). While attempting to relax the growing list of things I want to do instantly felt overwhelming, so to calm my anxious mind I decided to go back to onw of my favorite posts for inspiration and focus on the bits of pretty that I like to scatter around my place. They may blend into the background, but when my head needs a little clearing, they're the first things that pop up.
