My Favorite Things

In continuation of Lisa's song; the part that applies to us here and our cold winters:

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

Mara had the lovely idea of listing our favorite things... I had to join in, albeit late.

My favorite vase -- this comes from Seville. I love the Andalucian style of ceramics. The purple flower was given to me by Rafa on our first date.

My Kitchenaid -- I have to find a reason to use this at least once during the week. I get so much pleasure out of using it. Makes my house a home.

Favorite mug from Lotta, in Finland. Whenever I see it or use it, I get such a big smile on my face.

Spices in tins - something about them, I just love the idea of spices in tin boxes. The two in the front are from The Spice Shop in London... the silver tin in the back is from my friend, Maria, in Norway. It's an herb mixture to use on top of pizza or in a pasta sauce. Those nifty Norwegians.

The front of my fridge -- filled with magnets and postcards from friends, my favorite bread recipe, my favorite guy, Liam, in his own calendar that my sister makes every year. This is December, of course, where Sir Liam is featured sitting in a box eating a piece of bread. The caption underneath: This package is better than Hanukah gelt. My sister's humor, ladies and gents.

Nigella in my kitchen. My signed and framed copy of Nigella. I love this; sent to me by Maria.

And because a girl can't have too many calendars, this gorgeous calendar was given to me by Francesca in Israel. Great Israeli recipes adorn it each month, and the great thing is that it is based on the Jewish calendar, so I could keep using this until September 2008!
