A Few Of My Favorite Things

My friend, Dee, at Dressing Our Nest, just did a post about things that made her smile.  Since she inspired me, I thought I'd show you what makes me smile and a few of my favorite things.

My tea cup from the
Queen Mary ship when
I visited with Nel
and Jess.
My handmade doll
from France.
Coffee -
(my mom's name was Rebeca).
My Italian china hutch.
Candles -
I think I have one
in every room.

and delightful

The picture of Mary
in my bedroom.

I've had this figurine
since my son was
in grade school.

Decorative perfume
Handwritten notes
or cards.
And of course,
red roses.
What are some of your
favorite things?

Your hutch is beautiful, Sheri! Did you bring that back all the way from Italy??

I love this post... it really tells you a lot about a person to see the things that make them smile. Of course, I'm not surprised. I already knew you were a beautiful person inside :)

I like that tea cup and the perfume bottles are wonderful. So many times now I will see a pretty perfume bottle and wish I could just buy the bottle!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Wow! I think I could just use your list...except I haven't traveled to the wonderful places you've been. But I love dolls and pretty tea cups and poetry and....lots of the same things you love! And I LOVE this post! I may do one soon! Sweet hugs, Diane

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh Diane, I haven't traveled to these places either. The china hutch was a gift from my husband many years ago, and it was made in Italy. And the doll was from my blog friend, Jill, who lives in France, and she sent it to me. It's something I will always treasure. :~)

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Sherri, you have so many beautiful things. I think we like the same things. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Patricia said...

So many pretty things, which give us a glimpse of you, Sheri. Your picture of Mary is exquisite - I love it very much. And I'd give a home to your sweet blue china in a heartbeat. Happy days! xx

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh dear one, some of my favorite things are:

The sunshine.
Memories carried in the shadows cast by the sun.
Birds singing.
Friends, true friends, gathering.
Teaching French.
My husband.
Traveling to France or England.
Waking up in the morning.

Dearest Sheri,
Back from my lovely trip to visit some of my dears in California. I thought of you while I was there and hopefully one day we will be able to meet one another.
You have such precious treasures that bring you joy and happiness and each one of them holds such tender memories and meanings to your lovely and loving heart and spirit.
Thank you for sharing them today...
With Love,

Hi Sheri, I love seeing your favorite things. Each and everyone so special to you.I have many of the same favorites.
Love the beautiful rose photo.

Isn't it great that the things that make us happy and can easily put on a smile in our faces are just little things and sometimes not really expensive. Most of the time its the memories that go along with acquiring them and sometimes the fact that they are just so pretty. My mug and teacup collection makes me happy so does my stationery collection.

Love your favorite things ESPECIALLY the figurine and tea cups,
they are so pretty and I totally understand why they are precious to you.
