My Favorite {Uninteresting} Things

Averill over at Ode et Amo was kind enough to tag me to name 6 of my favorite, uninteresting things.

I've got oodles of uninteresting things! But if I can only name 6?

Ok, here we go:

Some of my favorite fonts. Let me type my name 25 times. I know you're impressed

1. Fonts-I am a complete font addict. I have a gazillion fonts sites bookmarked that I'll visit when I feel the urge coming on. I get that same giddy and excited feeling like when I buy something new. Plus, easier on the budget right?

2. Absolutely Fabulous-I know, I know, it's something I shouldn't openly admit {Hello Internet!} but I I've always been a fan of British comedy and I could watch it for hours. It's sad that it's never aired anymore.


3. Loud, Obnoxious Patterns-I love busy patterns and if they are bright and vivid, then I'm in! I'm not sure if it has something to do with me being 70% color blind or if I just love all things busy. I try really hard not to pick stuff that is too gaudy but I am a sucker for a bright paisley or bold modern floral pattern.

4. Nurseries- No, no not that kind! I'm talking about flower nurseries. I could spend hours there. Wandering around looking at all of the flowers, taking mental notes of which ones would work in my yard. Peonies, hydrangeas, lilac bushes, roses. *sigh*

5. Silhouettes-Usually you can find a silhouette of anything but often you'd find them of people. Now days you see them more and more and of different subjects, or a patterned background instead of a plain white one. And making your own silhouette piece is totally easy too. I've got them all over my house. Here's a cool tutorial from Crafty Nest on making your own silhouettes!

6. Lino Block Prints- I've made a few of these in the past and they're actually really kinda fun to create. I love the strong lines and simplicity of lino prints. And frankly, a fun lino print looks great on anything!. I mean seriously, you can stamp on stationary, wood, gift boxes, canvas bags; the possibilities are endless.

What about you? What are some of your favorite things?

Great choices, Kristina! I'm all for silhouettes myself and I don't think those patterns are at all obnoxious -- they're fun!

I love Ab Fab as well, don't be ashamed! I love lino block prints too.

Ab Fab! Don't hide your love, wear it like a banner, loud and proud!

Hey, I'm totally with you on the Loud, Obnoxious Patterns (and florals, must I add), but it starts to be embarassing now that I am little far from twenties, LOL
