Things I Love Thursday

Bonjour! Or shall I say good night?
It's 2:41 a.m. for me so perhaps I should.
But that means it's officially Thursday, time for Things I Love Thursday!
Things I Love Thursday is a list, being it small, big or huge, of the things you've been loving these days, or what's making you happy.
This is a tradition created by the always brilliant Gala Darling (who I seem to have mentioned in almost every post!) and it has been adopted by lots of nonpareils like myself to follow in our own blogs and our daily lives.

Something I've learned from Gala is being grateful. We don't really see it, but being grateful makes such a difference. It makes you happy. Life can really change if you appreciate the small things it gives you, it turns everything a whole lot brighter.

There a lot of things people don't see or take for granted, and they are truly special things. A beautiful sunset, a midnight phone call, laughing with a friends, a coincidence, or life itself.refore we're focusing on them so we're happy.
Things I Love Thursday is wonderful tradition and it's worth making a habit. As grateful as we can be, it's good to have a special day to write it all down so we won't give anything for granted, and it's also nice to share with people what's making us happy and what we love. It shows a great deal about the other person.

This is what I'm Loving this week:


By being grateful we're highlighting the good things in life and the
  1. The Twilight Tales.
    I love the fact this girl has a whole blog about fairies and fairytales and I love the fact that it was all inspired by the twilight.
    I love fairytales, we all grew up with them, and in this imagination-starved world, it's good to know all those magical stories are not so forgotten.

  2. Holidays with my friends in the beach, taking lots and lots of pictures and having so much fun together before we all go away for college.

  3. Keira Knightley's green dress in Atonement (I'm posting the same picture because I love this shoot. It's the perfect light for the dress)
    Indescribably beautiful and elegant. So 1930 - 1940's, and the perfect shade of green.

  4. Mika. He's really had me singing the whole week. My moment's obsession are Lollipop and Relax, take it easy.

  5. I'm officially enrolled on the College I wanted, so I'm officially going into the visual arts career I have always dreamed of. I'm immensely happy.

  6. Cleaning & order.
    Since I'm now officially going away, there's a pile of stuff I need to get rid off to see what I've got and what I need to buy. Same with my wardrobe. There are so many clothes I don't really use and there's a lot of things I need, like, basic things.
    I'm also very excited of the idea of a new house, and a new room decorate freely. I already have stash of pictures and ideas for that purpose. But I have decided I will become more ordered, so I've also started searching for pictures in Flickr to get some inspiration for my future studio or work area, to keep all my materials organized and a neat & inviting working zone. Gracious! I'm so excited.
    Here are some examples...
    Une, deux, trois, quatre, et cinq
What's kept your heart swooning this week?
I hope a bucketful of things. Now go and love your days away!

Not only do you praise me so beautifully and make my day (ok, ok - week), leaving me with a gorgous new blog to read via your profile (I always sneek a look at who comments on me) but you're a Gala reader too!

I'm glad you agree with my view on the 'twilight' the world needs. At the moment I've got my little heart and grabby little fingers set on tickets to go see the Spiderwick movie - it looks so pretty.

I want to see it too! But I missed it in the cinema...I'll rent it as soon as it comes out on DVD. For now, I rented Enchanted, which iI never got to see, and the hippie fairytale for excellence, across the universe, which I adore.

Have a nice day!
