My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into Springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Lyrics by Richard Rodgers

The above picture I believe is an Inn that I took over a decade ago in Leavenworth, Washington in the United States.  It made me think of the song My Favorite Things.  It's a wonderful place to visit at Christmas time.

These vintage ornaments I can remember seeing at my grandparents place since I was small.  I now have them out at Christmas in my home.

Bubble lights are also something she always had up at Christmas.  The first picture with different color ones are my cousins the other ones are mine.

I was going through boxes in the basement and I found a box of costume jewelry that belonged to my boyfriends mom.  This brooch is one of the pieces.

These are some unsigned pieces of costume jewelry I have in my collection.

Thank you Brenda of Cozy Little House for your Welcome Wagon Friday visit to my blog. A wonderful surprise.

  21. I just found a pack of 2 bubble lights - I'd love to have a whole set but that probably won't be happening - if you can find them, they're pretty expensive!

  22. Looking at your brooch brings a memory to me. My uncle made my Mom a tree out of styrofoam covered with green velvet...and on it he pinned all of my aunt's costume jewelry for a gift for my Mom the year after my aunt died. It was covered with sparkly things and pearls etc. It was so pretty.

  23. The brooch is so pretty. We had some bubble lights on our tree when we lived in San Diego, but darned if I can find them! I love bubble lights!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  24. Welcome to Blogland! You have some wonderful treasures. My SIL has the bubble lights that belonged to her family growing up, and would you believe they still work and she uses them on her tree every year!


Look forward to your kind comments.
