My Favorite Things . . .


A few of the things in life that make my heart go pitter pat. Maybe they will do the same thing for yours. ♥♥♥    I'm pretty sure however, that these things mainly make my own heart sing.   


Beautiful books and Anne of Green Gables.  I have been to the Island, many, many times.  I was born on the Island. My middle son lives on the Island.  I have never been to Green Gables although I have been to Lucy Maud Montgomery's home.  I have also seen the play in Charlottetown. Love the books, the films, the shows.  Love Anne.


Paper Snowflakes  . . .  so pretty . . .  


Mittens, I much prefer them over gloves. Always have done.


Snowmen . . . I refuse to call them snowpersons.  They will always be snowmen to me. 


This type of coverlet.  Lots of work, but oh so pretty  . . .  


Dogs  . . .  I will always be a dog person, but I do love my kitty cats too  . . . 

I mean, how could I not?  Just so sweet  . . .  


Writing desks  . . .   


Pitcher's and basins  . . .  I need to remember to get the one I made for my mom sometime when I am at my sisters  . . . 


This  . . . .  so pretty.  They don't match, but somehow they do  . . . 


Salad for lunch. Actually I love salad pretty much any time.  What an elegant salad bowl this is. 


Leafy shadows  . . . patterns of light  . . . 


Patterns of light, Christmas lights  . . .  they remind me of the light of the world  . . . 


French Patisserie . . . . used to love to go to Patisserie Valerie in the UK . . . 


Pavlova  . . .  this is a particularly pretty one  . . .  


Shops all decked out in Holiday style!  


Sealing wax  . . . .  although not sure that it would get through the post office today with all the machines . . .


 The idea of Santa Claus   . . .  loved those films starring Tim Allen  . . . must put on my watch list  . . . 


Carousels  . . . . magic.  Pure magic  . . . 


Glass baubles  . . . love them. Maybe again some day . . . 

And those are my favorite things for this week!  Maybe some were yours also!

I am so sorry that I basically repeated myself a couple of days in a row, Monday and yesterday.  I had forgotten that I already told you all that stuff on Monday. DUH! When I do stuff like that it scares me. I worry I am losing my mind! Yikes! 

I have my little boy laying here next to me. Every so often he looks up at me and flexes a paw in my direction.  He's lovely.   


So is she  . . .  she's just not in your face as much. Perhaps a bit more independent. 

A thought to carry with you  . . .

In The English Kitchen today  . . . .  Mary Berry's Mincemeat Buns  . . .  not sure why, but they always call small cakes like this buns in the UK.  Delicious no matter what you call them. Especially with a hot cuppa! 

Have a wonderful day!  I have quite a few errands to perform this morning.  I find that if I get out and about and do them early, I am  okay.  If I wait until later, they just don't get done because I don't want to go out!  Whatever you get up to, don't forget!

And I do too!  


  1. Lovely post. Beautiful favourites. You feel better if you get out early to do your errands. I'm off for breakfast. A friend gave me the Bon Maman Advent calendar, a wee pot of jam every day. Yesterday was rhubarb. I wonder what today's will be. Stay safe when you're out and about. Love and hugs, Elaine
