What Do YOU Love?

 
What do YOU love? Some of us "love" our china and teacups, while others of us "love" the spoons that stir the beverage in them. Some of us "love" cookies or baking, while others of us "love" the chickens who graciously laid the eggs to make the cookies!  Some of us "love" shoes or purses that we work for or work for us. Others "love" creating by hand while others of us "love" using a machine. What do you "love?"

All things nice... said...

I love so many things, I love tea, sunshine, the colour blue, nature, pretty girly cushions, cosy bed clothes, elephants, comfy slippers, crafting, saturdays, an open fire on a cold night, spending time with my family and boyfriend, the list goes on and on, I love the simple things in life :)

All things nice...

Lovin me some children/babies. Love to bake. Love new recipes. Love a clean house, especially if I didn't have to do the cleaning. Love to read in the shade by a pool, look outside...been awhile, eh?

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I do love my china! But mostly I love my house. We've worked hard on getting it just right and we're still not done. But I really love my hubby. He's in Afghanistan right now and I miss him terribly.

Love all the pink in the pictures. Very nice!

Kelli said...

Oh, I love SO many things! I couldn't even begin to list them all here! But I'll try... ;)
The sweet breath of a sleeping baby against your neck as you cuddle it.
The laughter of my children.
A fresh blanket of snow and the quiet it brings with it.
Birdsong on a warm spring morning as I sit on my front porch swing.
The crunch of crisp autumn leaves under my feet, the smell of woodsmoke, and the bright blue of a clear October sky.
All of these things are peaceful and calming to me. As for things that can be held in your hands, I love a good book; yards of pretty fabrics that spark my creativity; a glass milk bottle holding a bouquet of wildflowers; dandelion chains; baking breads...just about any kind of breads.
And this only scratches the surface! :)

Love loads of stuff!

Especially like Shabby Chic and tea time things...cups, tablecloths, serving pieces, tea pots.

Love being outside in nature and listening, observing and take photos of it.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Silly me but... I guess I "love" my iMac computer. :-) And books, which are especially fun to read.

I love the Lord and my husband and family first of all. Then I love beauty, whether in the photography I take with my camera or in the "books, dishes, accents for our home". I love being married to my best friend. I lov making new friends and seeing new parts of the country. I love romantic living.

I love my computer which lets me visit all my wonderful blogging friends! After that I love the roof over my head, I love my warm comfy bed at the end of the day , I love the warmth from our fireplace on a cold winter day. I do love all my thrift store finds too.
Blessings!

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

I love many things, but here are a few . . .

I love truth and honesty and being real and genuine - honestly!

I love barns old and new, loved or neglected!

I love most anything that serves a utilitarian or functional purpose, but is lovely. Like pitchers, bowls, vessels of most kinds.

I love fabrics vintage and new. I don't sew much, but I love having fabrics around me.

I love papercrafting and making cards especially.

I love most wildlife, and especially my back yard birds.

I love God and country.

I love my little Doxie girls.

I love my sweet hubby. God knew what he was doing when he worked things out so we would meet almost 26 years ago.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg! B.

curtis said...

I love clean dishes, neatly arranged food on my shelves, a house full of the smell of fresh baked bread.

AshTreeCottage said...

I love my family, my friends and of course my little dog Bentley. I also love blue and white china, anything red, old typewriters and telephones and my pink bicycle with streamers, a bell, a sheepskin seat and a wicker basket!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Julie Harward said...

I love most all of those, I'm not into crafts though. I love riding my horses, singing,my cats and dogs, blogging, walking, my kids and especially my grand kids, get a ways with the hubbie, recipes..cookies-bread-meals,decorating,this beautiful earth, people...learning from others. And so much more! Come say hi :D

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Janean, I love so many things but I love creating most of all. I am happiest when I am creating anything with my two hands.

Lovely post!!

SueWis said...

Well, I love my family AND I love baking, cooking, reading, sewing, thrift store browsing, our wood stove, working out, bicycle riding, hiking, my Macbook, our acre in the country (with its asparagus, rhubarb, and garden), drawing, painting. The list is endless, really, I love the simple things in life.

Grace @ Ruby Moon Designs said...

A fresh cup of coffee first thing in the morning...the scent of a baby who just got out of the bath...just hanging out with my best friend (my hubby!)...getting a hand-written letter in the mail...and I could keep going!

Blessings, Grace

Mari said...

I love:
1)Simple things and joys.
2)Grandbabies with hugs and kisses.
3)Quiet time to reflect and think.
4)Swimming.
5)Knowing my children are following Jesus and loving Him with all of their heart.
6)Blogging and reading other's blogs
7)Beauty of nature and creativity of how ladies decorate to make the most of their home
8) Sunshine and warmth

The most important would be confident we are in the center of God's will and feeling His presence in our daily walk.

Thanks for the good thoughts!

Just Breathe said...

I use to create with my hands, I was pretty crafty. Now, I love a nice purse. I really love my collection of tins, new and old.

Technodoll said...

Oh gosh... it would be easier to list what I don't love such as bills, debt, insomnia and a perpetually dirty house despite massive amounts of cleaning! LOL! Life... is filled to the brim with beautiful things just waiting to be loved. What a great post :)

Karen said...

Love my grandkids, oh, and my kids...teehee...love baking and then eating. My list is too long to write, but I'm learning to love even the small moments.

Donna said...

I love my sweetie and his pink little butt. Shhh... don't repeat that all over the internet!

Julie said...

Wow, had to read this one this morning and then come back to comment. I do love beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I don't like the cold winters!! but I do love seeing the sun shining through all the ice left by a frozen night. Looks like Christmas lights outside in the daytime. I love the unconditional love my doggies always offer. I love my four children. They are like unending treasure boxes just continuing to dispense joy in my life. I love a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning.... yum. I love my husband. 28 years is a loooooong time....I love my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ for saving me for my life to come - in my real home...Heaven. I love hydrangeas filling up a pretty vase in the summertime. I love watching all of the birds flock to get seed at the feeders in the wintertime, especially after a snowfall. I love all of the red, orange, golden and brown leaves on the ground after a very gusty day in Autumn...it looks like a new carpet in my yard... Oh my...too long. sorry. I'll stop. There's too many! ps-chocolate!

Rita said...

I love many things, but at the top of that list is all the wonderful bloggers that I have met through this experience. Thanks for being a part of my life.

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

Oh what a good question!!! I love my family, of course, my home, gardening, photography, cooking, baking, a warm bath, my sheepdogs, sleeping in late and my friends.

cindy said...

I love a good, hot cup of coffee, a clean house and the smell of spring. These are just a few of my favorite things.

Oklahoma Granny said...

There are so many, many things there's just not room to list them all.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What a fun post! I love so many different things, too. I love the ocean and everything about it...hand made jewelry and BAGS and purses! I love DOLLS and cute little toys and childrens books, old and new. I love my blogger buddies and the sunshine! I love my family and good books. It's fun to find vintage things from my childhood, too! I love pretty things...and beautiful linens for my bed! Thanks for asking! I love your blog! ♥♥♥

I love vintage items, especially old books. I've got a thing for my family too :-)
Blessings,

Auntie Cake said...

I gotta tell ya, I love pink, so I am good with all of those lovely items. I'm not picky, just give them all to me, and I would be one very satisfied girlie! (giggle, giggle...)
