thoughts for a friday.
they say that everything is temporary. our joys, and thankfully our woes. Being happy and savoring the little moments in life is not always easy, but it’s probably something to strive for. the busier i get (and i’m thankful for that) the more i also want to slow the heck down. the more frenetic life gets, the more i want to stay centered and feel happy for what i do have, rather than unhappy for what i do not (hello, valentine man — are you out there?). everything is temporary — even ice cream melts. so savor it while you can. you never know how long it’s gonna last. i guess i’m getting all trite and touchy-feely today, but what i’m trying to say is that most of life can sure taste good going down. here’s my temporary thoughts for a friday. we’ll see how long this lasts.
• hate to waste good trees for the convenience of temporary paper plates? here’s the most beautiful alternative i’ve ever seen. not that you can cart these delicate dining beauties around in your picnic basket, but don’t you want to? i love these porcelain paper plates from sin lived in.
• i like nice things, too. and i love this work by detroit-based artist Cody VanderKaay, i like nice things, this is only temporary — Vinyl lettering on greeting card sack. a whimsical, witty and artful reminder.
• do you want a tattoo? i have a lot of friends getting some pretty beautiful tattoos lately. i mean, large, fully-committed tattoos, none of that silly heart on a vine kinda wimpy stuff like i have on my ankle (i blame it entirely on foolish youth). i’m not sure i could pull the trigger on that big a commitment based on how many times i change my decor around. that’s why there’s tattly. you know about them right? brilliant temporary tattoos brought to you by the swiss-miss herself, blogger and tattly founder Tina Roth Eisenberg. this, i can commit to.
