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.    


I am thoroughly enjoying Julia, which I am watching on Crave here in Canada.  I think Sarah Lancashire is doing a fabulous job of portraying the icon Julia Child.   Its fascinating to see just what Julia had to go through to get her show produced.  And look, she became a cooking icon. Many of us cut our culinary teeth on her! I highly recommend!  


Candles. I love them. Any size. Any shape. Any time. Any where.  I do have my favorite scents.  I like my home to smell like I have been baking something tasty! 


Springtime Daffodils.  It won't be long now! 

Trains with Pullman cars. Such elegance . . . 


Vintage fashion   . . .  they were so elegant and stylish. I also happen to love the color pink! 


So pretty. Some people just have a knack for putting things together, colors, patterns, fabrics . . .  this is lovely.


Picnics  . . .  I love picnics. We never went on any as a family when I was growing up. My mother had an aversion to being outside with bugs, and especially with eating out of doors.  I, myself, am not fond of flies or wasps, but I do love a good picnic.  The UK was a fabulous place to picnic. 


Chocolate covered dates.  I adore them. The first time I ever tasted one was at the Borough Market in London. It was love at first bite. 


Frou frou  . . .  I love anything frou frou . . . tulle, ruffles, layers  . . .  so pretty  . . . 


Oh my  . . .  loving the bows . . . 


Can you imagine being lucky enough to live here?  Oh my  . . . 


Chocolate Puff Pastry Rolls  . . .  look at those layers  . . . I can almost taste them . . .


Another stylish and pretty grouping  . . . 


Whoopie Pies  . . . .  yum  . . . 


Classical music  . . .  love it  . . . 


Chinese Lanterns  . . . 


Crisp crusty  flutes . . .  cold butter, cornichons and chacuterie  . . . bliss.


Anne  . . . I love Anne  . . . 


Nature and all its beauty  . . .  


Truffles  . . . .  yum  . . .  they melt in the mouth  . . . 

And those are my favorite things for this week.  Maybe some of them were some of yours!

A thought to carry with you  . . .

I am making good use of my leftovers in the kitchen today with a delicious Toasty Leftover Porchetta Sandwich! You could actually use any kind of leftover roasted meat to make this tasty sandwich.

I hope that you have a lovely day!  Whatever you get up to, stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy and don't forget!
