2. Good books. The only downside is that there will never be enough time in life for me to read all the wonderful books there are, as well as reread my favorites. I can always give it my best shot, though! I am enamored with the Brontes, and love my copy of The Secret Garden illustrated by Tasha Tudor. Right now I’m reading a biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery and its fascinating. I love old timey ladies and old timey books.
6) Homey things. I love wild vines, cottage gardens, laundry on the line and a nice clear blue day. This photo was from over the summer, its so nice to see my backyard in its lush and green state. Now the gourds that were on the fence have been picked and are hanging on the porch to dry. They’re coming along nicely!
7) A good book and nice hot drink. I admit, I can drink cocoa and coffee year round, at any time of day or night. There’s just something so nice and comforting about it. I also enjoy curling up with a nice big book with beautiful photos and writing. I’m a visual person, so I think it’s so inspiring.
8) Knitted pretty things. I love to knit. I wish I was better at it. I make a lot of mistakes. But I love yarn so much. I always have high hopes for what it will become! I’m still working on my shawl, hopefully I’ll finish it before its the middle of summer! I love the soft gray of this yarn and the scarf is one of my favorites. Love a good seed stitch.
I also love being able to come here to this little blog and share with you the things I create and the things that capture my fancy and imagination at the time. The truth is, I’m a bit of a shy person. But that doesn’t matter when I’m sharing with you all here and you’re all so nice and supportive. It’s a pleasure to talk with you and share with you. I wanted to let you know, too, that I plan to make more of an effort to respond to each of your comments on each particular post. I’ve done that for the last couple of posts and I intent to keep it up as best I can. I think we’ll have an even better rapport then.
