Things I Love!

I'm not writing today about what I thought I was going to.  An article in the paper today made me really stop and think about how blessed my life is and how much I have to be thankful for.
Some of the things I love that make me happy...
a good haircut,
pillows - lots of them,
vintage postcards,
crossword puzzles,
rain on the roof,
hearing my husband laugh,
craft shows,
vintage dishes,
time with my sisters,
sewing dollclothes,
sitting in the floor playing with my grandchildren
(even tho it's sometimes hard to get up),
good sewing thread,
toile fabric,
estate sales,
sweet memories,
tarnished silver,
Mason fruit jars,
comfy shoes and jeans,
prayer partners,
playing ball with Bella,
well behaved children,
Fairy gardens,
wreaths on the front door
yellow roses.
I hope that you have lots of things that make you smile!!


  1. What a beautiful post! I think we should all do one of these. I'll work on one, too! We love so many of the same things! Have a wonderful week my friend! Hugs, Diane

  2. You are right, there are so many little lovely things in our lives each day that bring joy and yet, go unnoticed. Thanks for pointing them out!

  3. Oh I am crazy for that memory box....that is beautiful. And your dog....I often wonder the same thing!

  4. Oh I am so thankful for my blessings also. Thanks for helping me remember to pause and be grateful for all I do have.

  5. Hey, what am I? Chopped liver?

  6. Great post! I always enjoy reading lists like this and thinking about it myself.

  7. You inspire me to count my many blessings too, Judy!
    Thanks for sharing yours.

  8. Oh, Judy- This struck such a chord with me. I think I need to do a grateful list, too. I love so many of the things you love...and bought a separate paper today just to be able to do their crossword puzzle. Life is grand, really, isn't it? xo Diana

  9. This is a lovely post. We all have so many things we love that we often neglect to see how special they are to us in this hurry, hurry world we live in now.

  10. A lovely post, Judy! I loved reading your list.....and share a lot of the things on it. Everyone should write one of these lists!

  14. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post, and it has made me think about the things I am thankful for. It is all too easy to forget some of the simpler pleasures in life.

  15. What a joyous post - I might just copy your idea - maybe once a month to remind me of the happiness around me. Thank you!!!!!

  16. LOL "Who Rescued Who"

    A lovely post but I bust out laughing at the end :)

  17. What a great post and I try to be thankful for the little things everyday. It is amazing how the simple things make me the most excited. Love the Who Rescued Who Sign, that is how I feel about my two pups even though they are not rescue dogs.


  18. What a great post - I really enjoyed reading about some of the things in your life that make you smile. :-)

  19. Great post!! I love many of the same things that you do. The simple things in our lives sure can bring us the greatest joy.

  20. Cool breeze on a warm day.
    The sound of my grandbabies laughing.
    Being able to find the big dipper.
    Jeans that fit.
    My pug dogs.
    Going to sleep every night and waking every morning in the U.S.A.
    Real letters in the real mail.
    Blogs like this one that make me think and appreciate.

  21. Sure enjoyed learning things that you LOVE!

  22. Hi Judy! This was such a beautiful post! Thanks for sharing! I`m your new follower and warm greetings all the way from England! :)

  23. Awww, Judy what a beautiful blog you have! It is so sweet and homey here - just like Cozy Little House. I love her too and will vote for her lampshade. We both enjoy our darling little grandchildren, vintage treasures and rescued pets. I'm really going to enjoy everything you post from now on!

  24. What a fabulous list, Judy!!

  25. You always make me smile.
