My Favourite Things

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

As I have mentioned previously, I am a keen reader of Ulla’s blog. Well, she just awarded me this award.

Thank you so much, Ulla! I even had a great laugh when reading about it on her blog, because one of the things she wouldn’t want to be without is raw potatoes. I have this peculiarity as well – it isn’t shared by many, but I love sharing it with Ulla! 🙂

Along with receiving this award, I have to mention 5 things that I cannot live without – not counting family and friends. I do tend to avoid these kinds of listings, because I can never make up my mind – you know, questions like “who is your favourite writer” make me go blank. Honestly – how on earth would I know? It’s not like I have a grading system…

So anyway, I’ll give it a shot, and here is a list of 5 things that I really wouldn’t want to be without.

  • The Internet – an amazing wealth of possibility and inspiration, right here on my laptop!
  • Tea
  • Time to Myself – just essential
  • Sewing – has quickly become such an important part of what makes me happy
  • Summer

I’m sending this award on to two fabulous bloggers, that I’ve come upon. I found Jennifer’s blog Moving Hands just recently, but I’m sharing the link with warm recommendations! Another one that was added to my rss reader within minutes of finding it was Sharilyn’s blog LovelyDesign – so drop by those two, and be sure to find tons of inspiration – ’cause they’re both Fabulous blogs!
