Things I'm magically drawn to

'sleep with stars'
This week's Top Ten Thursday is 'certain things we feel magically drawn to: "stuff", foods, people, locations.' I'm listing ten things that just comes to my head today so this is a bit random.

01/ stars — I just like them a lot especially the five-point stars

02/ mint/blue color things — whenever go shopping or just looking around, somehow blue or mint just comes to mind when it comes to choosing a color

03/ bicycles — I just love them

04/ white furniture — I like the look of white furniture, not to say I don't like color furniture but that I just find white furniture to look so nice and clean and almost organize somehow

05/ crystal/glass lamp base lamps — I guess I just like how they sparkle or something

06/ pajamas pants — I love wearing them

07/ umbrellas/rain — I seem to feature these two a lot in my artwork, I just think they seem sort of magical

08/ things that are designed well — like a book cover or a piece of furniture or anything that looks like people took the time to make them

09/ flowers — I love seeing flowers of all kinds especially the really bright, colorful ones or if I'm a different mood, the soft, light hue ones

10/ books — I love books, I love to browse them at book stores or the library, mostly at the book store because I can buy them and take them home and never give them up but I do sometimes if I especially dislike a book but yeah, books because they take you anywhere and you can live adventures you would otherwise never would

What are some things that you are magically drawn to?

  3. This list perfectly represents you, Lissa :-), Books, rain, stars, flowers! Even the color you use for your blog's design.
    Have a wonderful weekend - you should rent (if you don't own one) a bicycle and enjoy a ride through Central Park!

    1. I would get myself a bicycle except I have no coordination, I would simply fall off the bike. books, rain, stars, flowers - I suppose that's me.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  4. Lissa, I adore your piece..and love your list too. I love ho you did the folds with the stars on her dress in particular.

    Pretty much everything on your list I would include but thinking outside that? Hmm... WEll, I love the rain and smell of it. Oh, wait, you mentioned that. hahaha. I love snow. And I'm drawn to the smell of a fresh brewed black tea, coffee and toast. I guess aromas draw me in. :)

    1. tea, sure, toast, yes, but not coffee, I really just don't like the smell of coffee. I guess it's because I didn't grow up drinking coffee or around people who drinks coffee.

      thanks for visiting. have a lovely day.

    2. Actually, I recall you don't like coffee. ha, the funny thing is i did not grow up with coffee around either. My mother never drank it and no one I knew did as we didn't even have coffee shops. We all drank tea. Now, I love a latte but don;t drink jsut brewed coffee and never drink it at home since we don't even own a coffee maker. hahha. Still like the smell though.

  5. I love your list Lissa and I can totally understand the white furniture thing - our bedroom cabinets and dressing table are white as it makes it a little more peaceful. #6 I agree with and I have several favourite pairs.
    The drawing you've done for this post in so beautiful - love it.
