It's the Little Things

*Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the purse giveaway!*

Welcome to my first ever It's the Little Things list! The pictures below are all my simple pleasures that I find delightful in each day. You know, the little things that make my day more pleasant! I like to reflect on those little things especially when my day isn't going how I imagined it would. We all get days like that, right?

First off, I like to start my day off with a steaming hot cup of tea or coffee. I like to switch it up depending on my mood.

Although, I don't use it everyday, my red Kitchenaid mixer makes me happy every time I look at it. I've wanted a red one for as long as I can remember and I finally received one as a wedding gift!

My little ivy plant brings me great joy. I love flowers in the summer (well, all year) but this plant does me good all year round. I've even managed to keep it alive!

I love candles. There's rarely a time I'm not burning one!

This here is my all time favorite fabric softener. Downy Vanilla & Lavender. There are no words to describe how good this smells. I especially love it on our sheets!
I can not go a day without spending some quality time with my dear hubby. Although some days we may only be able to see each other at dinner time.

Here's the fun part, my first giveaway! Since I've been having so much fun lately sewing purses, I've made one for one lucky commenter. Here it is:

I'll leave the giveaway open until Friday night (February 6) and announce the winner on Monday. I'm sorry but I can only make this available to Canadians or those in the US. Now go ahead and comment away! If you tweet, stumble or subscribe to my blog you'll get an extra chance to win. Just comment a second time letting me know what you did to promote this! Thanks so much!

Now here's your chance to play along with your own list of It's the Little Things. Please link up with Mr. Linky and show me all the delightful things in your everyday life!

What a cute purse! I too always start my day with a cup of hot tea. It gives me a few minutes of peace before the house wakes up.
