Some of My Favorite Things

I am a janitor to a few of my favorite things.

Favorite Things

The woven basket holds a blue cut off wine bottle and it in turn holds all my colored pencils..  You never know when you might need a colored pencil!   The woven basket is being guarded by a replica of Chance..a gift from granddaughter Madison. 

I love boxes..they hold lots of “stuff” and make me seem more organized than I am.  One holds old computer mouses and parts..the other might be a surprise box..since I cannot recall what exactly it holds… it would be a surprise! ( One Times Square Candy Bar without the candy .. I ate the chocolate and wrapped up a piece of cardboard the same size as the chocolate..a little pink computer duster and a few miscellaneous notes to self.)

The little Chickadee is a wood carving by my cousin Chuckie.  I won it at one of the family picnics.  I asked the little girl to please pull out my name and she did..I felt bad..but not bad enough to surrender the Chickadee.

This is just a small part of the shelf that is above my computer desk…just a few of my favorite things that I like to look at..and dust:)

  1. It is comforting to have the things we love close at hand, and in view!

  3. I have often wondered what the plural of a computer mouse might be. Now I know: mouses! :-)

  4. I save old things and reuse them, or should I say re-function them. Sure helps keep clutter down.

  6. I have a collection box (or a number of them) like that too! On my counter at the end of my breakfast bar but mine doesn't have a cute puppy sitting it it nor does it look as well organized as yours!

  7. And at the end you got us to go back and look at your picture to find all the things you described. Pretty sneaky post!

  9. Interesting...Hubby and I were talking about simplifying, and as we did so, I looked around me and was mentally checking off 'favorite things'. Yes, they require a bit of upkeep, but the memories associated with them are so comforting. I love your Chance replica - so cute!

  11. That's a wonderful chickadee. I wouldn't give it up, either. Have a good evening!

  12. I can never throw away a pretty box. Using them as you do makes me feel that they're not going to waste and corralling odds and ends.

  15. I always enjoy seeing the area where a blog friend "works." That's a great "Chance" and I love the bird.
