A place for all things I love...

I love things that don't make sense..

The other day at church I was getting restless and decided to make a list of things I love/make me happy. It was a good thing to put down in writing to get me thinking, and hopefully so I won't forget. There were multiple things I love that frankly don't even make sense.. Here are a few:

TEA SETS. I don't know why I love these so much. I never had tea parties as a kid, my mom didn't own anything of the sort, and I don't even drink tea. None the less I love tea sets.
OLD FASHION KEYS. I really love the look of old fashion keys. Like they are hiding untold treasures locked away somewhere. I think I became obsessed after watching secret garden, which is odd because I hated that movie. I would like to own a key like this but have never come across one that I could buy. So I have no key to any treasure so far.

POLAROID CAMERAS. They film is so costly and the pictures don't turn out all that well, so why is it worth it to have these little square pictures that can't be duplicated? I don't really know.. Maybe I love the quickness it produces the picture, or maybe it's the fact that it can't be undone or fixed when you push down that button. Again, I really don't know but I love what that bulky old camera can produce.

And last but not least ROCKING CHAIRS & ATTICS. This one may be the weirdest, because frankly I'm scared of rocking chairs and attics! Im sure it's from too many scary movies, but I don't every actually want to own a rocking chair or have an attic in my house. I guess I just like the idea of them, something about them feels special to me. Like old people have special mind powers sitting in an ancient piece of wood swaying back and forth. Or attics, that hold everything precious like childhood memories and secrets. So I don't know why I am mesmerized by these 2 things, but I am.
So though it doesn't make total sense to me it is what it is :)


  1. I'm loving the old keys as well. Pottery Barn has neat ones, but they are more like decor. Does that count?

  2. You are so cute! I loved this post!

  3. I love tea sets, because my mom loves them and always bought them and had tea parties for us. We would have cherioes for mini donuts supposedly and tickle tea(weird I know) in the pot. My grandma and mom made it when we were sick. Milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar heated up..you'll have to try it! I still make it when im sick.
