Rainy day treasures

Feb 2, 2014

California is suffering a major drought at the moment. Imagine our utter delight when the skies suddenly opened up and showered us with some much needed raindrops. Despite the day's beautiful atmosphere (which I was incredibly excited about), I stayed indoors to "study" for my upcoming midterms. I also went through my stuff attempting to organize but instead, I just rediscovered items that I really like and kind of forgot about my bedroom organization endeavor.

I don't think I've shown you this yet. It was one of my Christmas gifts and I just love it. It's actually not a journal but rather, a book of crossword puzzles. It'll come in handy while traveling, I'm sure. Fact: anything with shoes on it belongs to me, myself, and I.
My mom bought me this beautiful little antique (vintage?) picture at an estate sale recently. I wanted it the minute I saw it- I just love everything about it. Now I just need to find the perfect spot to display it.


I kind of forgot I owned this Betsey Johnson bracelet. Isn't it the greatest? Admittedly, it looks a bit weird on my skinny wrist and so I've only worn it once since I bought it nearly 7 years ago. But the main reason for this is because it is super loud to wear- the hearts always "clink" together as if I was wearing chains. I suppose I should only wear it to places that are loud where I won't draw attention to myself- a concert, perhaps? 


Remember the days before there were iPhone apps? Well, that's where this Seiko (Psycho?) electronic dictionary comes in. I bought it because it seemed "cool" to carry it around as opposed to an actual book. Only problem was that it defines words with single words. So, like, for example, if it defined the word "happy" with the word "joy" and if I didn't know what the word "joy" meant, then I'd have to look up the word "joy" and, well, you see where I'm going with this? 


I bought this deck of cards at an Irish shop in town before it closed. I was so sad that it went out of business, that shop made me want to visit Ireland/surrounding territories so much! But, I'm so glad I came away with these cards with scenes of Wales- even though I don't really play cards (solitaire, anyone?) 

This lovely little dish that was made in Ireland was given to me by my very thoughtful cousin who always thinks of me when she sees stuff from the UK/Ireland. It was originally meant to be hung on the wall but I removed the little metal hangy thing and decided to use it for my jewelry instead. I have it on display in my bathroom and love it so much. 

Do you enjoy posts like this because I love writing them? :)
