My Happy Things

Pin It Now!

Heather at Present Past Collections wrote a post about her "Happy Things" yesterday. I thought it was a fabulous idea so here are some of my Happy Things:


1. Making homemade jam. I made blackberry jam last weekend (pictured above). I love to give these away in baskets for Christmas gifts. I hope to be making peach jam soon.

2. Enjoying my favorite Ice Tea which I can brew quickly thanks to my ice tea maker

3. The way my skin looks and feels when I use this product. Read the reviews and you'll see how great it is. I also found great reviews that weren't on the manufactures web site. You have to give it a least two weeks to see the results. It can be bought at Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc.

4. Listening to this guy...he can change a bad mood into a happy one with just his voice. This is a proven fact because it actually happened to me today! Go to his website and send him an E-flirt (I'm too shy to do this). 5. The best chocolate in the world. I'm sure some people would disagree but it's my favorite. Love their butterscotch squares!

6. Santa Rosa plums....my absolute favorite fruit and it's only available for 2 weeks in mid June. I wish I had room to plant one of these trees. They are the best!

What are your happy things?

Cindy, I can agree with you 100% about Michael. Ever since the first time I sen and heard him I was attached! I am so envious of people who "can" too! I watched my Mom do it for years and I feel I'm much to impatient for the process! I will say the blackberry sounds divine! Lori

Love Michael, love sipping iced tea.
I will have to make a list sometime too.
I have never tried making jam. I should try it sometime.

What a great list. I love Michael Buble too. The jam looks so yummy. Thanks for the tip on the skin product, I've been looking for something just like it!

Cindy, those are really good "happy things". I totally agree on the Sees Candies...it's awesome. And homemade jam...yum. My mom makes it, but I don't.

Love Michael Buble. I think that is half the reason I like the movie The Wedding Date with Debra Messing.
Being that I am from the Midwest and have spent a considerable amount of time in California, I have to disagree regarding Sees. I like Fannie May. My best friend is a die hard Californian, lives in the San Fernando Valley and she would agree with you.

I love your "Happy Things" idea!! Your list made me smile. Oh and I love your plates in your gorgeous bedroom! I was just given boxes of old mismatched plates and appreciate the inspiration Cindy!
Love your blog!

My favorite chocolate is Godivas "Key Lime" truffles... rich dark chocolate with a creamy *tart* filling. Yummy!

I miss canning- I used to can my own preserves every autumn from my grandfathers orchards. But we live 7 hours away from his farm now...

Hi Cindy. I am sitting here at work having a cup of your fav tea. How yummy!! I picked up a box today at Whole Foods. Thanks for another great find!

Loved the post!!!

Cindy, I'm always in awe of anyone that makes jam from scratch. It seems like such an involved process. I love receiving homemade jam, there's nothing that can compare. That was a fun list!
