Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings

These are a few of my favorite things!

So, I've been wanting to do a "favorite things" post for SO long but I just have SO many stinkin' favorite things!

My friend Kristy had a Summer Favorite Things post. That's a good way to narrow it down, make it "Summer" Favorite Things.

My internet girl-crush Kandee Johnson does monthly favorites, which narrows it down even more and the adorable Mandy, from Miss Indie does "Friday Favorites" which is a good way to break it down even further, into weeks.

Since this is my first "Favorites" I decided to start broad and start with my "2011 Favorites".
So, here it goes! :)

If you know me, you know that one of my main obsessions is my gold jewelry :)
My Gold Michael Kors Watch is one of my prize possessions. 
My grandma got it for me this last Christmas (ok so that was 2010 but, close enough;) ). When I opened it I almost started crying because it was so unexpected. I love it.
My Jane Hollinger Teenie Heart Bracelet (in Gold)
I bought this on a whim at Fred Segal one night with my friend Stefana. I don't usually make a lot of big purchases but I fell in LOVE with this and it just so happens that I found it right after I got my tax return check. Sounds like a sign to me :) This is one of my absolute favorite things that I ever bought myself. 

My Gold Diamond Ring
This year I turned 25 AND my parents celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. My mom bought the two of us the cutest daintiest gold rings that both happen to have 25 little diamonds in them! My mom and I both wear them every day, it's so special :)
My Yellow Jessica Simpson Massi Heels 
Most years on my birthday I buy myself a little something special. These were my birthday gift to myself and I love them. My best friend/roommate Danica knows far too well about my obsession with heels :)

My Singer Simple 2263 Sewing Machine
I have lots of sewing machines but this one is my favorite. It's a basic, easy to use machine and the colors are just to die for, PLUS I got it on sale at Walmart :)

You Are What You Craft  Art Print 5 x 7 Pool
My "you are what you craft" Sweet Perversion Print
One of my favorite things to do is go to arts and crafts festivals. I love seeing the creativity of others and the beauty in creativity. One of my favorites is Patchwork- Indie Arts and Crafts Festival . I got this print at the most recent Patchwork festival in Santa Ana. Sweet Perversion makes SO many funny (and somewhat crass) prints. They're hysterical. My friends and I spent so much time at their booth. 

So, now that I've shared a few of MY favorite things, tell me, what are YOUR favorite things? I definitely would love to do more of these posts and do them more frequently so that I can share new things with you all. I hope that you all are enjoying your summer. More soon! :)

That fact that you used a Sound of Music reference to title your post this week makes my heart pitter patter! I love that movie..I always wanted to be a Van Tramp! Anywho..I love this post, I love the bracelet, those yellow heels are AMAZING I must find them, and I want to learn to sew so I'll be looking up that sewing machine!!

I realized while sitting in my meeting that I totally mispelled Van Tramp..so let me fix that, I wanted to be a Von Trapp family member not a Tramp family member! HAHA
