favorite things

Saturday, September 08, 2007

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.
