My Favourite Things . . .

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ef6qRld7Ugo/WfF1KXNKMtI/AAAAAAABYeQ/GKKvSz1yAIkFqkG65BU7654TS5eD4THVwCK4BGAYYCw/s320/alfp_favorite_things.png 

A few of the things which catch my eye, inspire me, pluck at my heart strings, make me smile, or that I just enjoy.  Maybe they will do the same for you.  



Johnson Brothers, The Friendly Village  dinnerware.  I have always adored this pattern.  



Sparkle and pears  . . .  pearls and sparkle . . .  in any combination. 



  

Vintage Valentines  . . .  



British robins  . . .  they're so cute! 

  

Homemade vintage aprons . . .  I love them. 
  


Bright copper kettles  . . .  okay maybe not copper, but I do love this  . . .  


  

Tuxedo cats . . .  next to orange/ginger ones, they are my favourites.  



I really like buttons, but I just adore RED ones!  


  

Morning glories  . . .  love them . . .



Fancy house trims  . . . .  sigh  . . . 

  

What don't I love about these  . . . nothing that's what!  



Susan's picket fence garden  . . . . sigh  . . . 


  

Sweet Peas.  They are the loveliest garden flower  . . .  as if you have captured a bouquet of butterflies . . . 


Crisp lettuces  . . .  like Peter Rabbit, they make me quite soporific  . . .  


  

Doe-eyed bunnies  . . . . 



Pie  . . .  any kind  . . .  any place . . .  any time  . . . 


  

Claw-foot baths . . . 


Butterflies  . . . 
  


  

Bluebirds  . . . . 


Forget me nots  . . . .

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cake 

In the kitchen today  . . . . Grandmother's Buttermilk Cake.  Delicious of course! 

The electrics on my stove went kaput yesterday so I have no stove now.  They can't come to look at it until Monday.  It will be the slow cooker and microwave until then!  Hope you have a beautiful day.  Its chucking it down here today!  Blah!  Don't forget!

  1. Oh my...Buttermilk Cake...that would be such a treat!! I cannot use real milk anymore, but almond milk with a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice seems to work just fine in recipes, albeit, not as rich tasting however. And don't those dresses look comfy? I would call that a "house dress", kind of like my Grandma used to wear around the house!!
    Hugs...hope you will have a good day...I am headed off to bed now...haha...tis after midnight here...I am a "late night" person...

    1. My first MIL had that JB pattern. I loved it. It was their every day dishes. I can't wait to see what you found! I love Susan's cups also. I did buy one, way back at first from the stockist over here, but it is soooo big! Love it though! xoxo

  3. Oh my sweet friend, I have missed reading your posts. I have loved seeing you here and there on facebook. I’m back again after a month non-rest.
    As always, I love all the things your love. We do have a lot of the same tastes.
    This one was fun. I particularity liked the dish patterns, always love pearls and of course Vintage Valentines are the best.
    Then there is that adorable Tuxedo cat, morning glories and those adorable dresses.
    I had a home with a white picket fence for a while and loved it.
    I do love sweet peas and that cute rabbit too.
    W also had a home with a clawfoot tub and it was so fun to just soak in. I loved those moments.
    Very cute butterfly quilt and I always love blue bird items.
    I have loved For Get Me Not’s since Elder Uchtdorf’s message.
    Thank you for that cake recipe; I am sure it will taste just like the one my mother used to make.
    Love you much and It was fun to come back today! Big hugs~
