Friday Night Fab Five: Happy Happy Joy Joy

Hi everyone! :D

First some business: Thanks to you all that stopped by yesterday during the Gauche Alchemy blog hop! I so appreciate your support and sweet comments! The winner of my Color Kits grab bag is....Jacque4u2c! Yay! I'll be sending out your prize next week! :D

And so now I can welcome you to this week's Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things this week that I adore. You know, today has been kind of yucky. Toot doesn't feel well, I don't feel well and the whole day has been blah. So for this week's Fab Five, I wanted to highlight 5 things that make me happy. :D

1. This Ad
I so enjoy reading Tristan's blog, Enchanted Revelry and he included this vintage ad in his post, "Things You Need to See, Things You Hope to Never See..." and it makes me happy.

2. Sunshine

Spring has come and although looks like it's already headed out since it's over 80 degrees today, I so love bright warm-but-not-too-hot sunny days. On days like that, I always sing this song:

3. Arrested Development
(picture from
This show only lasted 3 seasons on Fox but funny. And now all three seasons are streaming on Netflix. Bliss!

4. Glitter

I guess this would go without saying since the word "glitter" is in my blog title but still...Glitter makes me happy.

5. Pullip Dolls

Not the cheapest hobby to have but I've been lucky enough to be able to have two lovely Pullip dolls in my collection. And yes, I may be too old to "play with dolls" in the strictest sense but, know. :D

So that's it for this week's Friday Night Fab Five! What makes you happy this week?


  1. I'm so sorry that you and Toot aren't feeling well :-( I hope you're both better soon!

    70+ degree weather in April makes me happy :-)

  2. What makes me happy? Our anniversary today! My husband wanted us to marry on 1 April (a really convenient date at that time work-wise) but I said everybody would think it was an April Fool's joke so we married a day later instead!

    Hope you're all better & have a great Easter!


  3. Sorry to hear you and little Toot aren't feeling well. The weather has been so lovely, and it's not fun to be ill when it's like this. Sending well wishes - with a dust of happy glitter - your way. I enjoy reading Tristan's blog...he is always so much fun. Believe it or not, I never saw Arrested Development - although I've seen a ton of other shows and films
    that all the stars have appeared in. What is making me happy: a nice sunny weekend, a day date with the hubby, and time with the parents this weekend. :) Feel better soon!!! Theresa

  4. oh no, you guys feel yucky too- I hope it doesn't last long, ugh!!!
    And damn, thanks a LOT Maggs... "Sunshine Day!" craaaaaaap!
