My favourite things . . .

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.    
 
 
 
 
Old black and white films.  There are lots of them on You Tube.  The other day I watched this one with Ronald Regan in it.  It was quite good!  It was made five years before I was born in 1950!  I know they can sometimes be a bit corny, but there's no swearing in them, no nudity, no sex, etc.
 
 
   

 
Nursery Rhymes.  Some I remember, some I do not  . . . 




Well made beds  . . .  that looks a nice firm mattress. 


  


Holding hands  . . . 


   


Fresh vegetables.  I've never met a vegetable I did not like. 


  


This  . . . .  and everything  about it  . . . 


  


Vintage dinnerware  . . . 




Old wicker baskets and the sound they make  . . .  my mom had an old wicker laundry basket  . . . 


  

Floppy hats  . . . 




Pansies with their little faces  . . . . 


  


Ribbons and lace  . . . 


   


Vintage book ends  . . . 



Earth tones  . . .  and knitted shawls . . .  


  


Airdales. . .  



Tables for two  . . .   




Vintage shoes . . .  all laced up.  That petticoat  . . . 


  


Blue dresses  . . .  flower sprigged  . . . 




This because it is true  . . . . 


  


Ivory soap  . . .  always used it, but we can't get it here . . . 




Nan Hamilton pottery  . . . . 


  

Hello kitty  . . . 




Golden sunsets, or sunrises for that matter  . . .   



Jam Pots with covers  . . .

Paper boats and bunnies  . . .  




Tiny houses  . . . 


And those are my favourite things for this week . . .  sigh  . . .

  2. I have a basket much like the one you have pictured there today. It is pink and I use it for a purse in the summertime.

  3. Oh my, I don't think there was anything I didn't like. I would say it brought joy just looking at each item. This was a fun one for sure and I love so many of the things that you do.
    We recently watched an old black and white movie. We have loved alot of the old 1950's movies with Doris Day and etc. They are so fun and we laughed so hard.
    I do love to hold hands, especially in a movie. Our first date was a movie and the minute he held my hand, I knew he was special. Thanks for some memories and fun thoughts.
    Sending loving thoughts and hugs your way!

    1. Thanks LeAnn. It was a kinder sweeter time and I love to immerse myself in it for an hour or two when I can. I wish in many ways we still lived in the same world. Love and hugs. xoxo
