Some of My Favorite Things

Hello to all my dear friends,
This week I decided to show you some of my favorite things around the house, mostly white since I joined Faded-Charm for White Wednesday. I will tell you a little bit about them as we start the tour. Hope you enjoy them.
This pretty hand I purchased at Home Goods a couple of years ago and I added the lace trim, little rose and of course the large rose.

We love romantic things. This is in our bedroom.

First rose of Spring.

Stunning cream color body form I bought her at a lovely boutique shop.

Lovely lady is from Ross and I decorated her, I really like Miss Lily.

Pink body form is from a boutique, she has been with me about three years.

My favorite pillow is this huge rose pillow. We had a darling little shop not far from home with many handmade items, sorry to say they are now gone.

On our 50th wedding anniversary we went up to Solvang and Los Olivos with our daughter and her husband, this is what I wore for our special dinner at Fess Parker Inn. We had a wonderful three days.

I love this dove resting on the hands of Jesus. They are in our bedroom.

This little bench I bought at The Barn in Encinitas, perhaps some of you have been there or sold there. It's an enchanting store. I get many compliments on it.

I saw this darling table lamp at Lamps Plus and of course had to have it because it had pink crystals. It's in my studio.

This gorgeous chandelier is also in my studio, it matches the table lamp.

So this is it my friends, just some of my favorite things. Of course, I have more but decided on these for my post today. I enjoyed showing them to you. Have a wonderful week as we head into the end of February.


  1. Hi LU, I love your pictures. I am doing a little reading before I call it a day. I love the flowers and of course roses are one of my favorite. Hope all is as well as can be expected at your house. Ours is a little upside down. I am hoping next month things will be looking up. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

  2. I find the body forms very interesting and pretty. I have been to Solvang many years ago. You have such pretty things all over your house!

  3. Oh Lu! I Love that pink rose!
    Love all of these as well!

  4. Lu, I love all these items around your house. The hand with the white rose is lovely. I never thought about decorating them with pearls and jewels, etc. Home Goods and Ross are two of my favorites. I have seen alot of body forms before, but that cream colored one is so unique. The first rose of spring is beautiful, and the hands of Jesus I love. Thank you for sharing with us your most beloved items.

  5. Rain drops on Roses and Whiskers on kittens... Bright Copper Kettles and warm woolen mittens....etc...these are a few of my favorite things!

    Sorry... your wonderful post made me think of that happy song! And I just love your "girly - Girl" style decor, Lu.... I can tell I would be "happy as a bug in a rug" amongst your pretty things....

    Hugs from Texas,
