{Little Things to Love}

 I have seen quite a few things to love posts out there in blog land.  Kerri has her Friday Favorites and Nicolle is always recommending great new recipes and favorite finds.  So I thought I would give it a try.

Here are just a few of my little things to love.

Stumbled into this kitchen the other day.  All I can say is WOW...when can I move in?!  I love everything about it from the wallpaper to the curtains to the art.  I also love that it has dark cabinets.  Most of the kitchens I have been loving lately have all been light and bright.  This one gives me hope that a darker kitchen can still be fun, colorful and whimsical.

I'm not really a perfume kind of girl.  I  haven't had a "signature scent"  since before the girls were born. I wore this one years ago and when my on-line order was messed up a few months back, they sent me a small size...for free!  Yeah me!  I am falling in love with the scent all over again.  It is light, fresh and different.

Do you remember this wreath?  Just love Kim and her blog don't you?  I have all the goodies I need to make one of my very own.  Maybe a new wreath on my front door is one more little change that will surely bring spring a knockin'.

Soy candles are my all time fav. I splurged last week and bought this one.  It is WONDERFUL.  The scent is described as: "tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes, redolent with lightly exotic mountain greens"...yeah I would say that just about sums it up! It is heavenly and so far after a week it is burning beautifully.  It promises over 80 hours of fragrance. I'll keep you posted.

Dave made this bread on Tuesday.  He made 4 loaves.  We shared two and devoured two in about three days. And speaking of home baked goodness, we are hoping to make these this weekend.
Wanna come over for breakfast?

What have you been loving lately?
Have a happy weekend,


  1. Yes yes yes! If I leave now...I think I can be at your house by morning! Homemade donuts= yum! I only ever made donuts once (pumpkin donuts) and they were a lot of work...but so worth it!
    That kitchen you love is adorable! It reminds me some of our old farmhouse...lots of character. I like how she mixes old and new...it looks very fun and lived in.
    That candle sounds devine! I might need to look that one up!
    So glad you did this post...I LOVE seeing what others LOVE!
    Have a wonderful weekend...enjoy them donuts and those lovelies of yours!

  2. This is a GREAT idea!! I might have to work it into next week!! =) That candle sounds like my kinda candle!! You are so lucky to have an amazing cook in your house!! I pretend... but I need more play time!! ha ha!! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  3. I love this post, cindy - and I love the other "what I'm loving" posts, too ... so many great suggestions out there!! I just wish I had something to contribute - but like I said before, I feel like I'm in such a rut right now ... *snooze ...

  4. Cindy, I've been out of town and just catching up. I LOVE that kitchen!!OMG how great it is:)) I'll have to try all your favorite things. It's so fun seeing what others love.

  5. I don't think I left you a comment on your changes... love your new bookcase now! Love what you did to it! How great that you gave your little one her own shelf of things to do. Your projects and house ooze of the love you pour into motherhood! Thanks for sharing, tara

  6. I was sick all weekend and haven't been to see my peeps since. Just found your super sweet link back to me. I'm so touched! :) Thank you!

    I haven't worn perfume since before I was pg w/BB. I couldn't stomach smells and now I don't care for perfume on me at all. I love when BSD where's "his scent" as the girls call it, though. Weird, huh?

    That kitchen is all kinds of cool! Love the chalkboards everywhere.

  7. What a great kitchen! I love how it all comes together and is so fun, colorful, and full of character! The wreath is so cute! Those donuts look yummy!!!

  8. I love these kind of posts. I want to try that candle. I love soy candles too! :) The scent sounds heavenly!
