These are a Few of My Favourite Things

My Motto is "When you live with beautiful things, you stimulate your mind, you enjoy life a little more."  
I have a tray in my bathroom that I look at everyday that holds some of my most favourite things. 
It makes me happy every time I look at it, and isn't that what makes life worthwhile to find beauty and happiness in the little things. 

  • The Ivory necklace that I got when I was on Safari in Africa brings back fond memories.

  • The little Hermes bag that is filled with fragrance samples that I got as a gift when I made a purchase at Hermes -the orange color and the delicate brown ribbon makes me smile.

  • My favourite fragrances: Jo Malone & Cartier.

  • The Louis Vuitton zippered case, lined in brown suede holds my favourite pieces of jewelry.

  • The engraved silver lidded bowl that holds my watch and bracelets at night.

  • The two crystal silver toped jars, the taller one is a Victorian sugar shaker that I have re-purposed to hold talcum powder and the smaller one is a vintage ink well that now holds a small portion of my favourite cream.

Why not try rounding up a collection of some of your favourite things that make you happy every time you look at them.
