A Few of My Favorite Things...

Dear Readers:
I have decided to start a house diary. It will indeed be a work in progress. I want to document things about our house that I like for prosperity. I will continue to come back to this particular blog after I take more pictures. Currently, our house is in the midst of how it looks on a regular basis, and Christmas decorations. Whatever, suits my fancy, is what I will document.

Our winter kitchen curtains. In the summer, it's yellow and blue Provence.

Leo is our very handsome cat; I love him, love him, love him!

This is our favorite Grand-father clock. And it works too!

I love this quote high on the wall.

This is perhaps my favorite item. It's a statue of Degas' Ballerina. The photo doesn't do her justice. She's detailed and utterly gorgeous, just the way a ballerina stands with perfect posture. She's cast in bronze, and her tutu is a subtle shade of turquoise, while her bodice is another subtle shade, but of gold. The swirls of hair on the back of her head shape into a gorgeous bun. Sometimes, I put my hand on her hair, just to feel the beautiful swirl-like texture. Her legs and slippers are detailed in ways my description won't do justice. We've named her Isabella, and she poses for us in our living room.


  1. What fun! Leo is indeed a handsome boy.

  2. Thank you for sharing these pictures. I want one of you!


Thanks for visiting.
