A few of my Favourite Things

My favourite things! Stephanie over at For Better or For Worse has made a list of her favourite things, and so I thought I'd join her! It's mostly things that remind me of my childhood of family, so here we go:

This encompasses two of my favourite things, Tiffany lamps and butterflies! This beautiful lamp sits on our piano and I always walk past it thinking that it's just so pretty! N and I saw it one year at the Ideal Home Exhibition, and the nice man that he is, he bought it for me!

This is the blanket that was on my bed for most of my childhood. It was given to me by one of my mother's friends back when we were living in Alaska, and it was one of the first 'grownup' presents I had recieved and I treasured it! When it got to be more frayed and well-worn through the years, it stayed at the foot of my bed. In our old house, it was draped over a rocking chair. I have yet to find the perfect place for it in our new house, but I shall keep searching.

My dad used to keep all of his spare coins in this chunky glass vase in the kitchen, and I used to love swirling my hands in all the change. So I started keeping all of my spare change in one place too. One year, just before I moved here to England, my dad took me to the county fair, and bought me this piggy bank.

Sorry for the poor quality photo, but I keep this on a really high shelf away from Little Boy hands! It's a music box that was given to me by my father for my 21st birthday. I've never had really girly things before, but secretly always wanted to have something pink and beautiful like this carousel!

And last, but not least, The Guys. These are The Guys that have been wtih me and N for years, and I love them so much that I might just start a weekly feature called ... Meet the Guys Monday and give you all their stories. They really mean a lot to us, but sadly since Elliot was born, they've been somewhat cast aside, Sorry Guys!

And that concludes My Favourite Things! If you want to do your own list of Favourite Things, head over to For Better or For Worse and sign the Mr Linky!

  4. I tried to comment all day yesterday, stinking blogger wouldn't let me.

    I love your favorite things! That Tiffany lamp is beautiful. I bet it is absolutely divine when it is lit up! I covet your piggy bank. How cute is he with his corky nose! Thanks so much for playing!
