These are a few of my favorite things



on roses


and whiskers on kittens

image and warm woolen mittens


brown paper packages tied up with string


These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colored ponies


and crisp apple strudel




and sleigh bells


and schnitzel with noodles

image these are a few of my favorite things

girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes


snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes


silver white winters that melt into springs


these are a few of my favorite things

when the dog bites


when the bee stings


when I’m feeling sad


I simply remember my favorite things


and then I don’t feel so bad


All the best everyone :)

That is one of my all time favorite songs, and how precious all of your pictures are! They are perfect for the song, Allison.

What a great post! You are very clever Allison! the Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies to hunker down and watch during the winter. You've gotta love a gal that breaks out into song at the drop of a hat!

That was really cute ;)

Donna said...

Oh my gosh, this is such a CLEVER post, and I love the Sound of Music! I remember when it first came out (yes, I am that old!) and my mom and dad took my sister and I to the movies to see it. Going to the movies was a BIG deal (at least to us) back then... Money was tight and we didn't do things like that very often! Thanks for the sweet memories of that special day!...
