These are a few of my favourite things.  Maybe some of them are yours also!  A few of the things which catch my eye, inspire me, pluck at my heart strings, make me smile, intrigue me or that I just plain enjoy. I hope that they will do the same for you.    
 
 
 
 
New, old and in-between.  I just love the smell of books. I should have been a librarian. 
 
 
 
 
Anything with cherries on it . . .  love cherry art, especially art deco style cherry art. 
 
 
   

 
Love, Love LOVE this girls dog pillows. 
 
 
 
Schnauzers . . .  
 
 
  
 
Short bread biscuits  . . . . 


 
 
Country walks down country lanes  . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
Window seats  . . . . 


 
 
Old instruction leaflets . . .  on any topic. 
 
 
  
 
 
Peter rabbit  . . . . anything  . . . 


 
 
Hand crochet doilies . . .  used to do a lot of these  . . . 
 
 
  
 
I have no words  . . . . 



 
Vintage baby decor  . . .  with the soft lambs, and sweet eyes, puppies  . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
Ringlets on little girls  . . . 


 
 
Wooden spindle beds  . . . . 
 
 
 
  
 

Old radios  . . . . 


 
 
Old sewing machines  . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
This kind of siding  . . .  and those windows  . . . 


 
 
Pillows with messages  . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
Orange cats . . . 


 
 
Quaint bathroom vanities  . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
Garden swings  . . . 


I guess I just love anything that reminds me of my growing up years  . . . 

A thought to carry with you  . . .

is that they see the same truth.
They share it. ~C. S. Lewis

Nothing new in the kitchen to share today. Yesterday got away from me and then it was too late to take photos.  By early afternoon these days the light has changed dramatically  . . . 

I hope you have a lovely Thursday  . . .  don't forget!

  2. Even though I don't do much these days seem like they are flying by to me. I love the longer day light hours we are getting, but today we have an April snow on the ground here. Winter is not finished with us yet.

    1. I know what you mean Pam! Time seems to be flying by. Spring seems late to come for some. Yesterday we were watching hover-bugs in our garden. Love and hugs, xoxo

  4. Lovely post in the midst of all the craziness. Good for the soul, especially that marmalade kitty looking wistfully out the window wondering when all this is going to be better. Hugs and love, Elaine

    1. Over here in the UK, cats wander about freely Elaine. The windows have no screens. That's why we don't have a cat. I could not bear it to wander freely about. I would be worried sick. Love and hugs, xoxo
