Hi Katie, no wonder you smile at those sweeties!

What in my home makes me smile? A plastic lobster that holds the shower room door open. On the stairs, a basket of small knitted toys (mostly intercepted on their way to the charity shop bin). In the sitting room, photos of my children - but one in particular taken 10 years ago in which their little personalities shine out. In my bedroom, a small felt heart made for me by my daughter, scratchity stitching and all. A twiggy heart on the shed door. And finally on the dresser in the dining room, the sweet 'friends' hanger you made for me when I was dealing with a particularly dark time in my life - it was a ray of sunshine and helped me through. It's so precious to me.

Have a lovely week, my friend.

wow, I can see why they are favorite things - such beauty throughout the house! (it also looked pretty clean:)
I guess I spend too much time looking at the hundreds of things - organization, paint, repairs, etc. that need to be done that I don't take enough time to appreciate the 'sights' so THANKS!

I so enjoy your posts. All of the pictures are just lovely! I like the ceramic piece that is holding some kitchen gadgets!

What a fun post and cache of treasures you have! I love all my handmade things that my dad made and all the antique furniture that reminds me of my family. I also love my photos of Molly through the years. I love the idea of an inspiration board! Thanks for sharing ...

What delightful things. I love your collage...I'll bet you made that! I missed having you at Silver Bella. Last year, I knew who you were. This year I knew you. I had a great time but I am just exhausted. I am sure that sounds familiar!!!

You have the most wonderful treasures throughout your home. I always love to go poking around. There is always so much to see that delights the eye. Your classroom is the same way.

My own favorite things? Art from friends like you * all my wonderful glass * the colors of all my walls * all our books * Jim's picture of Sloane that Dulcy game me one birthday * all my old journals *

So much to love.
