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.

    1. I would like a cat one day, but not over here. There are no screens on the windows and I could not bear an animal of mine to be wandering willy nilly all over the place! xoxo

  2. Loved all your favourites today. Enid Blyton books, embroidered pillow cases, cucumber salad, vintage cards, patchwork quilts, sweet little lambkins. I love all your posts but I really love your favourite things pist. I've started sending a Friday Favourites email to a few friends to keep their spirits up. Thanks for the inspiration, Marie. Hope the rain has passed and the sun is shining now. It's a lovely day here. Hugs and love, Elaine
