Favorite Things Friday

Welcome to Favorite Things Friday! From now on, I'll be showing you some of my favorite things on things on Fridays...

Older things- Like this letter holder that my pen friend Katie made me. (See that cute card my Bobby gave me? I used to change the card out that would show in front but that heart card is my favorite.) And new Pansies! Forever Pansies... I'm sure I will always love them! I can't wait till they're spilling out of there!

And this newer little shelf thingy... I originally thought it too much of a Pepto Bismol Pink and I was going to change it to a lighter shade but it sort of grew on me. I love to decorate it different ways- you know- just play house!

But most of all... I love all my bloggy friends! You've brought so much sunshine into my life with your love and fun!
If you visit here but never leave a comment, I sure would love to hear from you!

~ Big Hugs & ♥ ♥ ♥'s ~

Hey Holly!
Oh girly girl, you know I love to play house too! It is one of my passions.... I do believe! LOL! That's Such a cute shelf and sweet display too...
I save every card I've ever been given I have a huge suitcase full of them...and a dresser drawer full too....that sure is a sweet way to display your senimental card that darling hubby gave you.
Those pansy's are so pretty too...I know you are enjoying them so much!
Hope you have a happy Easter sweet friend!
Big hug,

Holly said...

Morning, Queenie! thanks for the hugs! I save all my cards, too. Just think, some day people might look at our cards and call them vintage and gush about the art work in the 90's, etc. ☺ ♥

Queenie's Vintage Finds and Treasures said...

Yep, I always think that too!
Have a great day!

Love your theme for Fridays! You have such sweet items in your house. You must have taken these pictures before Bobby left:) I hope your back is better today! Have a wonderful day! Twyla

Holly said...

Thanks, Twyla! I made sure I had pics to post before Bobby left. I took some that I didn't have time to load on the computer!

My back is a bit better today. I can move around a lot more but no bending or reaching across! Micah is my oficial bend over and pick it up guy. I never realized how many times a day I pick something up... ♥

Katie said...

What a fun new Friday post to look forward to. That card holder is too sweet, what a lovely thing to be given and to cherish. I have to say I love the pink shelf, it's not too bright for me! You lucky dog, pansies!!! Well at least most of our snow is melted. Have a wonderful Easter if we don't talk!

I can't wait till I can plant more flowers but for now, I have so many bushes blooming that it's tiding me over.

Shabby Kim said...

Hi Holly,

What a great idea for Fridays. I will definately enjoy seeing all of your favorite things. I'm loving that cute little pink "shelf thingy". Looks like a great little piece to display some of your pretties.

Hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Easter.

Take care.

Nice favorites. I have the same hydrangea scrapbook album. I got it at Christmas tree shop & haven't even used it yet.

Pearl said...

Sure did enjoy seeing some more of the pretty things in your home... I really like the Moonbeam Letter Holder... Lovely! Glad that your back is feeling a lil bit better... hopefully, soon, you'll be bending and stretching without pain... Have a Beautiful day!
God bless...

Holly said...

Hi, Amy! I can't wait until you can have them either, Amy! Pansies grew well for there. ☺ ♥

Holly said...

Hi, Drama Queens Mom! I once was drama KING'S mom. ☺ But he's all grown up now and has his own drama to deal with.

Thanks for coming by! I love my hydrangea album. I showed my pages from it many posts ago and I plan to show them again on Scrapbook Sundays. Come by any time! ♥

Holly said...

Good morning, Pearl!

My back does improve every day and I'm determined to let it heal up this time! It's not like I TRY to hurt it all over again. All I did was reach across the table!

It helps to be thankful for the little things. No, I can't run but I *can* move and I *can* walk. Thank you, Lord! ♥
