  1. Smooth handthrown handleless coffee mug that fits my hand perfectly.

    I love the cactus photo. I can't think of the name, I have a photo of one somewhere too.

  2. What a pretty picture!! Gemma, I just love your joy and zest for life. It can be amazing, can't it?

  3. I will add - talking to blogging friends! I like the new look blog,

  4. Gem, I found you! You know how scattered I am so....please forgive me.
    Wow, love this place!!! Love you. xoxo

  5. love chai tea! ~ gardening is another one!

  6. Gemma,

    I have $40.00 left on my mall gift card (went to lunch on the other $10.00). You have listed some great things I could treat myself to. Never tried chai - that would be good. And of course a scented candle, a good book or a CD of classical music would be wonderful. To your list I must add cashmere socks.

    Our local color right now is white, white and more white.

  7. I'll add whipping cream to the list, to go with hot cocoa. And a walk in the woods. Fresh cut flowers. A movie ticket for one. A lavender sachet for the top drawer. Oh, and seeds... although I tend to get carried away and order more than $20 worth. ;)

    Beautiful list, gemma!

  8. That's a lovely list and a great idea for a post sometime. Thank you for sharing!

  9. I would add a great skein of yarn, a new tube of paint, maybe indigo or turquoise...
    a new journal
    Of course, I find too many of these little luxuries...and they add up! LOL!
