de profundis

the looooovely CC recently tagged me to write about 6 things that make me happy! so, making a change from snow-based posts, here they are! :)

baking! i'm really really into baking right now - i've made ginerbread biscuits, chocolate chip cookies, plain biscuits, brownies, muffins, chocolate cookies, chocolate muffins, cupcakes and fairy cakes so far :D i'm turning into quite the little housewife, haha!

old books! i have a big big collection of stunning old copies of books stacked beside my bed - everything from voltaire to dickens to c.s.lewis :) they're so much prettier than new versions and i love the higgeldy-piggeldy type writer text. plus, they're so cheap! i picked up this looovely book of childrens stories the other day for only £1.50 - it's totally charming, with beautiful illustrations and a story for every day of the year! plus, it has such a sweet handwritten message on the inside cover -- "To: David From: Dorothy Christmas 1938". Incredible, huh?

childrens literature! alright, this doubles up with my last one, as well, as this is the inside of the book pictured above! but i love all childrens literature right now, i just think the style and the illustrations and the stories themselves are so perfect, so witty, so clever, so charming, so magical. i've read alice in wonderland (again) and peter pan so far this year, and i just finished the house at pooh corner! now i'm reading the chronicles of narnia :D perhaps it's a bit too late for this, seeing as i'm sixteen, but these stories are so timeless and cuddly :) honestly, if you're feeling sad, there's nothing like a quick trip to never never land to make you feel better!

chloe perfume! this perfume is my faaavourite, i wear it every day :) probably unwise, seeing as it's got a pretty hefty price tag for such a little bottle as this, but it's so nice to feel like you're wearing a little piece of chloe every day. plus, the smell takes me back to summer time -- which is a very nice feeling indeed :)

wrapping paper! bizarrely, i've started collecting wrapping paper as of late? it's such a cheap and useful decoration to keep around my bedroom! haha :)

my bed! i'm sure this one's a given, seeing as i'm only human, but i do absolutely love my bed! it's so snuggly and it's been very very difficult getting out of it in these cold cold snowy mornings! :)

i've absolutely no idea how to tag! so, anybody who wants to do this, just do it! and i do mean anybody -- i'd absolutely love to read your responses.

& even if you don't wanna do a whole post on it, i'd still love to know, what makes you happy?

stay happy! :) x
