favorite things

Libby and I played a little game. The boys wanted to throw the baseball instead.
The rules: as quickly as you can, write down your top ten favorite things, or fifteen or seventeen, no peeking. Let's both start with family. Ready, set, go. Libby's list.
family::books::mr. d::coloring::my desk::handmade things::puppies::molly::florida::beaches::
vintage stuff::school supplies::my room::polka dots::stripes::old navy::target
My list.
my family::knitting::baking::ice::down comforters::sewing::yarn::fabric::photography::the ocean::clean laundry::wildflowers::ceiling fans::babies::music::autumn::coffee::blue jeans

I wish I could have added......libby's list::the touch of my children

Hope your weekend is filled with some of your favorite things.

extremely sweet! this is absolutely something I'll have to do with my daughter. you know how we have a lot of parallels? my daughter's teacher is Mr. Dickinson, but they call him Mr. D for short. is Mr. D Libby's teacher??
ice is on your list; should we be concerned? ;-)
big hugs,

Thanks for making me stop and appreciate the good things in life!

hey there! just catching up with all my blog feeds, and it was such a treat to go through your last few entries (I think there were about 7)! Love the new top, love Libby's new top *and* the finds for her room. That shutter door is inspired. :-)
