What Are Your Favorite Things?

This morning I was trying to gather things that I thought would work well in a photo of one of my pillows. In the process of gathering, I started to notice all the little things, collections that make me feel good. I know we all have them, little objects that we have picked up on our journeys. Something so small can make us feel good each time we look at it.

As you know, I love pillows, not all pillows though. The two little pillows in the picture have been with me for years. They are done in a very soft vintage cotton with a separate little feather down pillow inside. I love the embroidery, one says Good Morning, the other Good Night. They make me feel good each time I see them. Such a great find.

The blue willow plate I bought at a flea market along with several other pieces. It shows it's age, there is a wonderful glazing that has taken place over the years. It's pale blue flowers are so faint yet sweet. My little wooden shoe forms have also been with me for years, aren't they just too cute? Of course we all love vintage sheet music and old photos, those are just a must have. The Hydrangeas are from my garden. They were a magnificent blue when I picked them and now they are a gorgeous lavender. I can't wait until there are new blooms so I can add more to my collection.

I would love to know what your little treasures are. What makes you feel good when you walk around your home? Do your treasures come with wonderful memorizes? Leave me a comment and share, it's always so nice to know what others collect.

Have a wonderful weekend, who knows you might even come across another little feel good treasure today.

My treasures are pictures of my children, and also the little things they have given me. I also love my vintage plates, esp. the ones that were my mothers or grandmothers.

I guess my favorite treasure would be my photographs. Can't imagine not having them.

Such pretty pillows. I usually see them done in red, but never blue. What a great find. and your vignette is delightful!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog :)

I'd have to agree with others that my real treasure are photos of my kids - especially black and white ones that I took when they were younger precious now.

But I also love collecting antique bottles ...the one that have turned blue/lavender with age.
And I just love urns of any size.

Loved your pillows and can see why they're so special to you.

Please pop by again.
