making me happy this week

1. Balloon mobiles. {via Hoping for Happy Accidents}
2. Michelle Caplan's street fair booth. To me, "Vera" is a perfect collage.
3. This fun job application. {via Crust Station}
4. Lena Corwin is finally back. I missed her; her content is always fresh and 100% original.
5. I'll soon have a copy of an overseas magazine, thanks to my favorite Favourito.
6. Cute pencil cups I can make for my new office (though maybe not as cute as hers).
7. Max's two front teeth. No, wait. The gap between Max's two front teeth.
8. I'm on my way to Mackinac Island today. It'll be stormy, but still.
9. Cruising around Michigan in the rain with my bro-in-law, who keeps an eye out for architectural gems kind of like this though they're better from the passenger seat in his car.
10. These tennis-reminiscent swim bottoms.
11. Ali Loves Curtis was selected to be featured as "Blog of the Week" over at Crust Station. Wow!
12. All the nice comments on my blog, even (especially) when I feel silly. :)
13. Winding through the Wasatch with C, just for fun. I think Aspens are pretty when in-motion.
14. Oh, and I'm in Michigan. I've never been to this part of the country since I was a baby. Am of course obsessed with all the green fields and red barns. And fascinated by the history of the Motor City.

Hoping you have a very nice weekend.
