My favorite things.

I don't know why, but boxes from make my heart race. I see them in the mail here at work, and I want to rip into them like a four-year old at Christmas. It's probably because everything I've gotten from Amazon are things I love - the Harry Potter books, the Inkheart books and my yoga mat to name a few...

I also love stacks of untouched legal pads. I have a case (that's right, a case) of them stacked in my desk here, and my mood improves considerably just seeing them there. The potential of the blank page...(sigh)

I also have a bouquet of sharpened pencils in my pencil cup. And an electric pencil sharpener. Hours of entertainment at my fingertips!

I love sewing patterns. I browse McCalls, Butterick & Vogue's websites and look at patterns when I'm bored. I usually stick to the costume section, and dream about making a 17th Century French court dress like this one:

I'd probably wear it around the house for no particular reason...
