Favorite Things

Yesterday started out with a trip to the dentist. High up on the list of my least favorite things.
But then the mood turned around sharply, and it began to blossom into a classic favorite things day.
A trip to my favorite Op-Shop resulted in a lovely lot of useful loot.Doily overload.......and a sweet beauty case. Oh and of course some more buttons.
A visit from the postie resulted in a parcel containing my "Favorite things" skirt from "Made with Love by Hannah". This was from an almost bi-annual swap we do and as usual it is the most delicious (and perfectly fitting) skirt you could own.I had a chance to have a good look at my brand new Rob Ryan book "This is for You" which was an unexpected late B'day present from Lily. It's the most beautifully told and illustrated book and is now my booky favorite! If you don't know Rob Ryan's work visit here.
Finally my sister dropped around last night with some more vintage tins, with this lady in mind.
I think the Ballerina is my favorite!


  1. ooh love the linens! Beautiful! i have quite a stash I've been making things with too, such fun!

    And I bet I know who the tins are for ;-)

  2. ooh ooh ooh. Tin envy!
    What a haul of goodies you've got here today!

  3. Oooooooh! So many lovelies! I am jealous :-) The skirt is amazing and thanks for the heads up about Roby Ryan's book (had no idea he had published a book!)

  4. love that skirt - it's gorgeous and now I will have to go check out that book.

  5. What a beautiful skirt, and such lovely tins. The one at the top is my fave.

  6. Lots of lovely things in the lino forest today. I'm definitely interested in the tins. I'll be in touch when this stupid virus disappears and I can string more than a few words together.

  7. oh im so envious of your tins, I have a little collection going myself that ive been getting from different opshops.

  8. Oh Rob's the man isn't he? Dick & Dora are major fans, I'll try and take a decent shot of a valentine's card he made.


Hi! It's very nice to receive your comment. I'll go and visit you too.
