Friday Favorites

one: plonkas envelope clutch from dalinda
two: drenched silhouettes from JacquleenBleu
three: birds sleeping on powerline cup from baileydoesntbark
four: small pebble earrings from lesthings

This small collection of Etsy favorites seemed to fit my mood and the weather this morning. Soft, comfy with splashes of lightness. It's raining, but not dreary. I'm happy, but not hugely engaged. On the way into work I thought up five things that are ideal for rainy mornings: hot lattes, slippers and cozy fleece socks, Godsford Park, and hours of doing nothing. I have this funny feeling it's going to be a post full of lists! Here are five things I'm planning on doing this weekend: blind date with a delightful blogger friend, sew half a dozen books together for upcoming art show, go to godchild's confirmation, visit Original pancake house, go see The Duchess. Five places I would rather be right now: Scotland, Petoskey, Portsmouth, Duluth, home. Five things Andrew will be doing this weekend: school work, school work, school work, school work, going to see The Duchess with me *evil laugh*

Okay, now it's your turn! Five things of your choice! Tell me! :)
