raindrops on roses...

raindrops and 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 strudels
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 spring
these are a few of my favorite things...


and maria and i may not share many of our favorite things... i dont care for birds, so geese don't really make my skirt fly up. and dessert is not my fav, so i can pass on apple strudels.


here are some of my favorite things, as if any of you care... but you're in my world now...


dress forms.


i want one. in my house. stat.

i love bowls in general, but there is something about the way they stack.


decanters.

i have loved them since i was a little girl. it is not even because i am a booze hound. i think it started with soap operas. rich people in soap operas always have decanters. they are elegant and beautiful, and they all look different.

library card catalogs.

i can not figure out how i can fit one in my house.


globes.

  1. i love globes and library catalogs and those maps that pull down and furniture w/those tiny drawers. i love it all. i want to explore a forgotten attic from the 1800s right now.

  3. i'm still panting. not only do i love many of the things you listed, but i particularly love the samples you chose. oh my word, that nesting bowl flower thing. i have a friend who has a library card catalog in her living room. i need to sneak a photo of it for you to see. it's amazing!
