Cream Color....

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels. Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles. Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings. These are a few of my favorite things.....* You may not be able to have a cream colored pony, but how about a cream colored comfy chair to sit in and read? On a diet? How about apple strudel scented candles available on Etsy? Goose-down shoes from Scandia (on sale for $25.00). These items are my take on the song.  Anyone else adore goose-down items?

Janean,
Lovin' all the creams! I want those booties! Have a great week ahead, dear one!

Shay said...

I must have that chair ...and the schnitzel.

To me anything with goose down in it sounds completely luxurious. Almost makes me wish it was cooler here so I could snuggle up and get warm!

I loved everyone of those photos, Janean!! Thank you for such a pleasureable view early this morning. ;)

Gorgeous pictures, Janean! Esp. love that pic of the geese in front of the moon! And the schnitzel looks delicious, however I'm starving, so most anything would look good!

I have a pair of the down filled booties that hubby got me at Restoration Hardware a # of years ago, but I rarely wear them because I like wearing something I can go outside in when I have to put the dogs out. They are very warm and cozy, though!

And our color is not cream today, but WHITE! WE now have about 6 inches of snow, and the sleet has begun, soon to be followed by freezing rain. Atlanta and all of northern Georgia are pretty much all shut down . . . Ahhhh, the joys of winter in the south!!!

:o) Be Joyful! Becky

Your Friend,
Deborah

Dianna said...

Beautiful pictures to enjoy, Janean! That strudel looks SO good!
But guess I'll just settle for the candles right now. ;)

Linda said...

I can't recall ever owning any goose-down items, but it sounds soft and inviting. :)

Love the items you featured.
Hope you have a wonderful week,
Linda

Pondside said...

That schnitzel!....wouldn't that be nice for supper on a cold January day...with home made spatzle?
I'm not a lover of a cream-coloured decor, but the chair would be welcome.

Farm Girl said...

Well since I am currently obsessed with chairs, I really love that first picture. Is it in your new room? I think all of them are just beautiful.

kpaints said...

Oh, those booties look so warm...we are in the teens and headed downward, I could sure use them!
I love the creams as well.

It's me said...

Yammie that apple strudel recipe!!! happy new week darling.........love Ria....xxx....

Tammy@beatrice banks said...

Lovely! Enjoying more of your favorite things! I'm really digging that wallpaper in the first photo. Cracker Barrel has their apple dumpling back. If you've never had one, you're missing out. I ordered one to go b/c it is huge, lasting me 3 days. Your apple strudel reminded me of it. Yum!

Nancy said...

I know that song by heart. Well, O.K., I know all of The Sound Of Music songs by heart. Love your geese picture. It makes me want to soar with them. And anything cream has my vote.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the cream coloring. Great pictures to go along with the song.

Sharing with Sherri said...

YES, I WOULD love to have that cream colored chair, as well as the gorgeous wallpaper and mirror!

Those warm booties would feel good on my cold feet about now too! It's a bit cold here in sunny California!

Have a wonderful day Janean!

Sherri:)

Michelle May said...

Great...yet again I will be singing this song all night long! hee,hee,hee. :)
I need those booties! I'm about to freeze!!!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

These pictures are gorgeous and the food is making me crazy. Oh yes, I'd love to snuggle up in some goose down. I'm in California, but we're having a real cold spell now. Everything looks so cozy.

Dolores said...

I love cream colors....I'd love to cuddle up in the beautiful chair with some of the yummy looking apple strudel....being careful of course not to drop crumbs.
You're so clever with your words and pictures!!
Hugs,

Mari said...

You got me with the cream colored candles! Nice mellow color.

Have a blessed week :)

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Yes, forget the ponies, but the slippers and the comfy chair are calling my name. Also copied the Strudel recipie. My hubby would love that for breakfast. I had to google Snitzel...hmmm...sounds and looks yummy. Learned something new. Love bein challenged.
Just watched "Sound of Music" again during the holidays. Such a sweet movie with all the kids, but I had forgotten about the Hitler part.

Florence said...

The combination of those booties and that cozy looking chair, I would be so happy. Thanks for sharing with us. Florence

I loved the photo of the geese and the moon. Beautiful.
Years ago for a wedding gift my MIL gave us a set of goosedown pillows.
I hated to see them wear out.
Love the cream color, but today our color is pure white.
Have a great day.

Gloria said...

Have a warm-hearted day!

Hi Janean!

I love cream, it goes with everything - the geese and the morning moon...lovely!! Maybe I just love seeing that amazingly beautiful blue sky!
