Raindrops on Roses…

I am really excited about a link up with some of my favorite blog/bloggers! This holiday theme of “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” is brought to you by AprilElise, and Zelle (definitely check out their sweet blogs…they’re all worth a look!)

This week’s link up post is for my favorite things – check out a few of them below: a bit eclectic, but I think there’s some fun ideas in there.

These are a few of my favorite things...

1 / Kangaroo Christmas Ornament
Our Christmas tree last year was a little bare (being in Dubai), but I did have a great Burj Khalifa ornament, which was a great way to commemorate our time there. I’d love to find a great Aussie ornament to remember our time down under for years to come! This one at Etsy was adorable, and at $24, affordable to boot.
2 / Black & White Photograph 
Barr and I love the idea of having some simple, black and white shots of cities in which we’ve lived in our home one day in Charlotte (Inshallah, y’all – we hope to be home owners in 2015!), and I’ve admired this photograph from Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai since I took a photography class at this studio last December.
3 / Rag & Bone Newbury Boots
A bit of a splurge (okay a big splurge), but these boots are a classic (and so comfy)! A camel color or deep brown would be ideal for returning back to the chilly North Carolina winter.
4 / 2015 Hymn Calendar
A friend of mine sent me this gorgeous calendar from a cute Etsy shop: Little Things Studio. I love paper products, calendars, and hymns so you can’t really go wrong with this little gift!
5 / Nespresso Inissia Machine
I’ve mentioned my love affair with Australian coffee before, and I think that espresso based coffee drinks have forever ruined my old coffee machine for me. Being able to make delicious espresso at home (this Nespresso machine is SO easy to use), combined with a milk frother, and I’ve got an at home flat white, long mac, or cappuccino – no flight to Perth necessary!
6 / Phaidon Cookbook
I’m a sucker for a good cookbook, and yes, I know you can look up recipes online quickly (and cheaply), but in addition to a good basic cookbook, Phaidon makes gorgeous texts for the kitchen.
7 / Poppy Lissiman Clutch
Straight out of Perth, Poppy Lissiman is a fab designer making international waves. Her clutches are colorful, fun, and a bit irreverent – I’m digging the “Eye Heart You” bag.
8 / Book Bag
I love to read. I love fun bags. Need I say more?
So what do y’all think of the choices? What are some of your favorite things? Feel free to link up in the fun as well 🙂 Until next time…
