These are a few of my....

*Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages tied up with strings...these are a few of my favorite things!* Based on that song, these are a few of my favorite things. Anyone have a rain shower head? The copper necklace is available online.  Also let truly apologize for not visiting all my fellow-bloggettes lately, but our lake-community home is still on the market (which is picking up) and keeping a spotless home for open house is well...NOT one of my favorite things! Ha!

I'm right with you on all of your favorite things except the kittens. Highly allergic to them. But they are cute. The pillow is my fav. Good luck on the sale of your house! Hope you get a buyer soon.
Happy New Year!

Good luck with the lakehouse! It is tiring and tedious to keep a house on the market! May it find a new owner soon! Love that kitchen island.

Dianna said...

Loved this post, Janean! Song and movie among my favorite things.

Sorry you are having to stay there to keep your home spotless for open house. I was just going to ask you if you wanted to come clean mine! ~wink~

Isn't it amazing how, after all these years, you read those words and the melody begins to immediately run through one's head? Loved this post..and those kittens? I want them both! Hugs- Diana

Rita said...

Been there and done that! It isn't fun, is it? But it will be worth the time and effort to get it sold. It wasn't one of my favorite things either! The rose picture and the kittens are absolutely wonderful, as are all the others. Hope it sells real soon and you have a wonderful new year.

Love the song...Love the movie...Love Julie Andrews in THAT one and Mary Poppins and so many others. I sing that song and it cheers me up! Your photos are always PERFECT for your blogs. Thanks for the whimsy and smiles. AND I think that shower head would feel wonderful. Standing under it and singing this song...what a happy moment! :-) Best wishes, Janean, on the house sale. I am looking at the possibility of that same scenario in the near future as Kurt is living in Iowa working and we are trailing here in NC. oh my. Hang in there..... HUGS!

Donna said...

Loved this post....and those sweet kitties.

I love fun things...and the kittens are precious! Enjoy your day, my friend! Stop by to visit...and enter my giveaway this morning! ♥♥♥

Farm Girl said...

Well, because there is not a single thing I hate more than selling a house, I send you a giant hug. Maybe if what they say the economy is picking up, maybe it will sell soon.
Yes, I love all of those things you posted and I do love that song. I love how you posted your pictures too.
Many blessings to you, and I know I will always enjoy your visits when you can come by, but, real life comes first. :)
Blessings to you my dear friend.

Raindrops on roses and bright copper kettles, and definitely brown paper packages tied up with string! I also love snowflakes on babies' hats, eggs in the nest and holly berries in the rain.

kpaints said...

I used to make those aran pillows in needlepoint back in the 80's, I think they fit anywhere! Thanks for the post...have a great New Year!

Cindy said...

I don't envy the house selling thing. We were there once and I truly hated the pressure of having to keep everything perfect. We ended up keeping the house and building an addition to it instead!

love the pictures that go with the song.

Sharon said...

I love the song and photos.
Good luck on selling your place. I sure hopes it sells soon for you.
Have a nice day

Oh Janean..... I know it's such a chore trying to keep a house looking perfect when it's on the market to sell...... here's hoping it sells quickly!

The rose is so beautiful.... but the kittens stole my heart!!

The kittens are so cute! Wish you the best.
