Our Favorites!

Pin It Now!

I thought it would be fun to see everyone's favorite thing in their home. I know your favorite thing could change from day to day but pick your favorite today and share it with us! It could be one item, a collection of something, a vignette, something big, something small, etc. but it cannot be a must be a material thing.

Please be sure you give me the link for that post not just your blog link. You can send me your link any time between now and Sunday, July 27th and I'll keep adding them below! I hope if you have a blog you will join in on the fun....I can't wait to see everyone's favorite things!

Cindy, I am not a blogger but love to read and admire all that I can. Your's is one of my favorites. I think your three-tiered dish from your mom would be my favorite too....if it was mine. Everytime I look at your blog I think, "Wish I had one like that."

Thanks for hosting this week-end. I feel like I am going to some kind of party. :-) Debbi

Cindy...sorry so late, but my post is up now. Have a great weekend. I need to rest now, the stress of picking out a favorite has tired me out!

Bettsi said...

What fun! Count me in, please! I can't wait to make the rounds and see everyone's favorites!

JoJo said...

Cindy, I wish a had 1 favorite thing but I don't. A few years back at Lakewood Fairgrounds (an Atlanta monthly sale), one of the vendors gave me a card that had a quote that became a mantra. “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful” by Wm Morris. We moved and I scaled back using this quote during the sorting process. I ended up with everything that I love! It is wonderful to enjoy everyone's favorite things! Thank you for sharing.

Anna Sophia said...

This was just perfect! I just bought a new lamp for my kitchen and then I read this post. I knew I would be taking a photo of my new clock. Here is my blog with the photo. Please add to your list. Thanks so much!!! :) God Bless!!! -Anan Sophia

irene said...

Hi Cindy- just ran across your blog today. It is so awesome and will be spending some time in the next few days looking at everyones favorites. I was searching online for decorative wooden appliques to add to some shabby wall shelfs I found. Not too much out there- that's where I came across your post concerning resin appliques and not to use them. Do you know of a supplier for wood resin or wood appliques at decent prices?
I love your home and the frame wall- that is on my list to do someday. I love your ideas- and all the helpful info! I will be back as a regular. Love your site!!! Irene in Nor Cal

Lori said...

Charlotte said...

I love the tiered dish and the way you have displayed things on it. This is a great idea. I just found out about it a little late.
Ginger of Enchanting Cottage and I have started a new blog called Spiritual Sundays. It will be structured on the order of Kelli's Show & Tell. But it will be a Sunday thing. When you have time, I hope you will visit my blog to learn more about it. My Friday post is about it and also there is a link on my sidebar that you can click to go to the new blog.

lille-bille said...

While I was visiting the blog "le temps jadis" from Marianne, I found yours! What a lovely place to stay, amazing pictures, great look and very nice posts. I also love the white-vintage style. You really have a romantic home! I don´t know if I could post just one favorite thing... my blog is full of my favorit things. My latest post is about a Teddybear I made of my own! I think he belongs to my very favorit things..... if you find the time, come and visit my place! It would be great doing an link exchange! Greetings from Germany Mira from belle-blanc!

Hi Cindy :)

I'm so mad that I missed out on this! I have so much going on, I can't find my head LOL

Fabulous idea and I hope you do it again sometime :)


Sandy said...

One of my favorite things are these shabby chic dog and cat beds! I just bought one off of
and I love it!

Sew Pink said...

Here is my favorite thing in my home. I already had a post written about it.

Deborah said...

I can't wait to see what you bought!
Did you notice how much the Bee pillow was - on the green chair?

I found some of the Antique Reflections at Marshall's. The plates were $12.99 each. I'm wondering if that is a mistake - you paid so much less.

Anonymous said...

What fun! I loved looking at everyone's favorite thing. I also went to some blogs that I haven't been to before. Everyone is so kool and interesting. That was a great idea!
