Some Of My Favorite Things

You know how sometimes, certain things just catch your eye every time you walk into a room.  Now there is not necessarily a rhyme or reason for this, they just seem to stick out.  Some of my current favorites are - - -

So what seems to grab your attention when you walk through a room?

I don't often do book reviews, but I just finished reading a wonderful book from a fellow blogger, Barbara Hinske, called Weaving The Strands

This is second in a series that she is doing and it is a FABULOUS read.  If you like a little mystery, intrigue, romance and small town atmosphere, you will love this.  Be sure to read the first one, it is called
Coming To Rosemont
I wasn't able to put either book down, I really think you will enjoy both.

  1. Thank you for the book suggestions, Marty. My husband is a voracious reader, and loves many authors. And who doesn't love a good mystery, thriller, and happy ending? Your treasures are all so attractive. It's what makes our houses homes, being able to find just the right decor items that speak to us and keeping them in our daily view.

  2. Love a lot of your fav things Marty....the hourglass looks wonderful. I have never seen anything like that. And you know what fanatic cloche lovers us bloggers are!

  3. I love my Federal mirror and my preserved boxwoods all the time Marty. In your home, my fave are anything inside your beautiful cloches!

  4. Love your "M" on the bookshelf! it reminds me of the one Mary Richards had in her studio apartment on the May Tyler Moore Show back in the day! And your swan is just gorgeous as well. What pretty inspiration you have Marty, so serene and lovely to look at!
