My Favourite Things . . .
These are a few of my favourite things . . .
A window over the kitchen sink so that I can look out and daydream while I do the dishes. Oh how many hours in my lifetime have I spent in doing just that . . . . every kitchen should have a window over the kitchen sink. The kitchen I have now doesn't *sniff *sniff
Warmer temperatures and being able to open the windows to let in fresh air. Ahhh . . . the smell of spring.
Grey and white woolen blankets, with blanket stitched edges. I don't know why I love grey woolen blankets. Perhaps they make me think back on my childhood.
Old china cups . . . with all of it's crackled finish and worn edges. You feel like you are drinking history when you drink from one of these . . .
Blooms that show up in unexpected places . . . like the inside rim of a bowl . . .
Lace Edged Plates . . . delicate. A slice of cake eaten on one of these would be a celebration. Even a plain old sponge. I love plain old sponge cakes . . . with a bit of jam and cream.
Floral egg spoons. I have a few. I love them. I never use them for fear they will break. They are Greengate, bought back when I had a few bob or two.
Cut glass plates . . . another love. I have a set of four.
Cherry Pie . . . .
Little grey bunnies in little green coats . . .
Going into town coats . . .
Worn over pin tucked, flower ruffled, bumble bee printed dresses.
Sigh . . .
And of course lovely comments left by YOU! You really do all make my day.
And that is all for today. What are some of your favourite things?
A thought to carry with you through this day . . .
"Hard as things seem today,
they will be better in the next day
if you choose to serve the Lord this day
with your whole heart."

Hope you have a lovely day! Don't forget!
