Blogger's Favorites -- Forty-Sixth at Grace

So I know I said I wouldn't be back until Monday, but when I received Nikole's blogger's favorites list I just had to post... It's. That. Lovely... Like an early birthday present to me! Nikole's blog, Forty-Sixth at Grace is one of my absolute favoities. I love her unique poetic posts, and her photos are dreamy and gorgeous and make me want to jump right into her life (or at least be the receipiant of one of her cupcake deliveries or one of her lovely handmade wooden spoons...)

Herewith Nikole's favorites. Enjoy!

when joslyn asked me to send my
ten favorite things,
i smiled
because it really is,
just my sort of thing.

but, i wondered
how i could possibly choose only ten.

i found though,
when i sat down to write,
it sort of came naturally.

you see,
i like things,
well designed things

and words,
well written words.

and moments
moments that create smiles.
the kind that somehow turn easily to memories.

think the pause
just before a kiss
or those fits of uncontrollable laughter,
that i know you've all had
with your very best friend.

in these ways
all my choices
while small in themselves
make me smile.

each of them different
but, equally loved.
starting with things,
and ending with the moments.

a perfect coat for winter
especially with a beautiful bow
i have just the one.

a package in the mail.
one with all different sorts of stamps,
and pages of letters inside.

a pretty print for my wall
one with letters i like.

a leather change purse.
complete with a little pull.

a light leather bag.
i would have happily added
this one to my collection.

a perfectly small bunny,
one to hug
with silly soft
floppy ears.

a perfect pair of heels,
ones that look
just right
grey wintery tights.

a perfectly chocolate cake
especially for breakfast.

a day at the ocean,
favorite book and hat in tow.

and finally my most favorite of all
a trip on a plane.

there they are,
my favorite ten
for today.

bye friends.
hope your heart is happy.

That coat! That coat! I could barely focus on the rest of the list after seeing it...it makes me want to wear it. Really, really, badly I want to wear it.

The whole list is fabulous! Happy Weekend!

I love the sweet simplicity and the poetic sentences of her list.

I'm going to have to check her blog out soon. Thanks for the recommendation! I actually found this blog out from a recommendation on {this is glamorous}. I immediately added your blog to my blogroll so I wouldn't forget to check you out. So far, so good! :)

i'm new to this blog--i've been surfing around to blogs i never have the time to look at. i started with one, and then picked a new one from the blogrolls of each of the blogs i end up.

i'm so glad i picked yours. i plan to return.
