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! ūüôā

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!
