A year of Lovely Things

I've really been meaning to post this for quite some time. 

A goal of one lovely thing each week. Something to add beauty, balance or inspiration to my life. 

52 things. 

Thank you to Perches for the inspiration.

Every now and then I'll share it  and add a link if I blogged about something or just make the item bold if I got it done.

Here's to being inspired 🙂

Now…. on to the list.


A Year of Lovely Things

send handwritten notes to loved ones  |  start a business

try something new  |  dye some yarn   make a beautiful piece of pottery

make marmalade jam from the satsuma tree in my backyard and eat it on toast 

while reading Paddington Bear to my kids  |  organize our pictures 

create a daily rhythm for our family  |  go camping  |  visit friends

embrace this moment  |  have a completely handmade holiday


Phew! 52 things is an awful lot! And I'm a bit behind on getting one thing a week done, so I guess I'd better get off of here and go do something.


Happy Weekending Folks 🙂

  1. Thank you for sharing this list! It is so good to see what you year might look like. I need to post my list as well, perhaps for Sunday Serenity.
    Have a great weekend


  2. Definitely not 🙂 And if you’ve done something lovely this year – for example, knit a gorgeous sweater – you could add it to the list AND cross it off 🙂 Happy list making!
