Our Favorite Things!


How lovely to have a little fun! This week has been so grim, I needed a little frivolity. Cindy at My Romantic Home came to the rescue! She is hosting a little show and tell. You can join in too- here's her post with the details.

These little ducklings by Stangl always had pride of place in my glamorous grandma's living room. I am so blessed to be the owner of these darlings now. Right now they reside under this glass cloche in my china cabinet. For the better lighting, I brought them out to the kitchen table. Aren't they sweet?
Now I am off to see the other "favorites". Hugs to all and thank you for all the wonderful, supportive, loving comments. You ladies are a treasure!

Those are darling! I love that so many of you have things from your grandparents. I don't, so I can really appreciate how special that is!

I love your ducklings! My daughter has befriended all of the neighbord ducks (and all of their babies when so blessed). These are just precious and so special to be from your grandmother!!

Your ducks are sweet. I love your cat too. I recently went to Key West and saw Hemingway's cats who also share the same trait.

I just adore the ducks, they are very sweet. Add to that the sentimental value and you have the perfect treasure.

I love those cute little ducks! And the fact that they give you a feeling of comfort. You're going to be fine. Keep that chin up and keep moving forward!

Don't you love the way a cloche makes the things under it seem so special? I love playing around with vignettes under my cloche as the seasons change and posting the results. How wonderful that your ducklings have a family history and have come to someone who appreciates them so!

So lovely that you have your grandparents things -ultra special. I love the cake stand in your first pic. I really love this new-ish style of white cake stands.
