Things I Love Thursdays: The Little Things

I've always been a sucker for the little things. Not just tiny things (which I have a slight obsession with), but also with the small things that make life worth living: a funny thing John says; coffee with my sister; the joy on Jack's face when he eats...anything. So this week I'm bringing you a few small things that made my week not just liveable, but kind of wonderful too.

First up, these tiny crocheted animals by Su Ami.






Are they not the cutest things ever??? I mean, who DOESN'T need an extreme micro snail? Or a tiny chameleon! If that's not your thing, there are also tiny mountain goats, pugs, and sock monkeys. Okay, tell me you don't need a tiny sock monkey. Thought so.

Next up, this video of Jack and Anneliese getting a total thrill out of running up and down the same hill over and over and over.

And finally, there is this.


Who knew a one-dollar bow-tie from Target could provide such a fabulous photo op? Me!

Those are the little things that made my week. What about yours?

Glad I can spread the joy :) Jack may kill me in fifteen years, but it was totally worth it.

The best things in life tiny! I love your "little things". Thought the crocheted animals took the cake... until I saw Jack:)

Those tiny animals are SO cute. My mom's best friend used to do the doll houses with all the miniatures. I loved looking at them. And how cute is JACK?

OH, Lord. I'm going to eat your children.

Haha Leigh Ann! I can't take credit for the little red head, but the chubby blond is mine, and he has plenty of meat on him for nibbling!
