Friday Fun

 Well one of the best things about this week was the lovely temps we had here on Tuesday and Wednesday.  On Wednesday afternoon I went out back with my big camp chair, a bottle of water and the Miss Read book, Friends at Thrush Green. I told Marvin I was getting some vitamin D.  I am so enjoying the Miss Read books. I noticed on the cover of this book a quote from Jan Karon....If you have ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford you will relish a trip to Thrush Green.  I read all the Mitford books and while I enjoyed them, I love Miss Read's depiction of several small villages in England.  I highly recommend these books especially as we are all growing weary of the world situation. 

On to some things I have purchased and enjoyed...

I mentioned the store Magnolia Rose and Co. last week. I picked up some things there but I did not have pictures last week.  First I will share this sweet little rustic barn. I am taking this to Grimmwood.


When I saw this small card, I had to buy it. I just loved the colors and most people who know me well know that I love a door. What is it about them that is so appealing? I am sure a psychiatrist could take that and explain a lot about my inner workings.:)


I picked up this tee shirt for spring. In a World Where You Can be Anything Be Kind. I think I am going back to Sass and Co to purchase one for Margaret. I think she would like it too.


I admit I got this idea from Between Naps on the Porch. She shared this pretty tissue holder on her blog as one of her favorite things. It comes from Amazon. I do love it. It sits in a tray on the dresser in my bedroom. Pardon the lighter you can see. I use it to light my Winter Cabin Candle, also on the dresser. 


Thanks to all of you who sent me Valentine cards. They are perched on my kitchen hutch and they make me smile every time I look at them.

Oh, how I loved the Mitford series!! Thanks for recommending the Miss Read books. I will go to Amazon shortly!! Great photos to share! I love the barn painting and the door car you framed! I took so many door pictures when we were in Italy, most would think I was nuts. There really is something about doors that just invite you in!! Great post!!

I loved the Mitford series, so I think I would like Miss Read too.
I'm also a fan of doors. I frequently take photos of them!
