Friend Makin' Monday

and
10 of my favorite things!
kasey is at it again...yeah!
if you want to join, go on over to her blog and sign up.
as you can guess, today's assignment is to list my 10 favorite things.
because i already have a pretty conclusive list on my side bar i'm going to share 10 favorites that you probably didn't know already.

(these aren't in any particular order...)

1. americana quilts. this is a picture of one the many un-finished projects waiting for me in my sewing room.

2. chewy lemonheads & friends. bob brought these home last week and they have topped my list of favorite candies! LoVe them!
3. old navy velour sweatsuit. i have...well, i won't tell you how many i have, i'll just say that my daughter is about ready to put me on what not to wear.

4. white pitchers with white & yellow wild flowers (preferrably daisies). about this time i start getting the urge to visit the farmers market on saturdays so i can pick up a bunch of white daisies to put in one of my white pitchers. i love them! the flowers and the daisies. one day i hope to have a large collection of pitchers on top of a hutch.

5. my nikon D60 camera! LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it! bob got it for me for my birthday. i love that guy!


6. my RED kitchenaid! i got it as a christmas present
and let me tell you, it's better than diamonds!

7. old red barns. there is something about them. i would love to restore one and make it into our home.

8. will moses puzzles. i love puzzles and he's one of my favorite artists. i'm not allowed to do them anymore because i don't get anything done. dinner, laundry, kids...it all gets ignored.

9. front porches and an american flag. i don't know what it is exactly...it's kinda like the old barn. it makes my heart happy.

10. old family photos. need i say more???

hope you enjoyed my list, i look forward to seeing yours.
have a great monday!

I love the quilt - I have my living room decorated in Americana. Can I have that quilt? ha ha. :) Great list.

Xazmin said...

I'm so in love with your list! Beautiful quilt too, and I'm so jealous of the Kitchenaid!

I loved reading this. I love old family photos and red barns too. That quilt is incredible. It looks as if you've already had to put hundreds of hours into it. I love the white pitchers and kitchenaid too. Never tried those lemonheads. I stick to chocolate, caramel, and toffee.

Fun post Julie! Wouldn't it be fun to live in a refurbished barn??? Love your new blog header!!!

Connie W said...

Your list shows me that we have many things in common. :)

Loved your favorites list. Oh yes the Kitchenaid. I should have put that on my list too. Love it.

I have always wanted to restore an old barn and renovate it into a house. I, too, love big ole porches (wrap around is the best) with a flag on them!

Rhonda said...

Hey,
I love my kitchen Aid Mixer. Mine is a blue/purple color. Red would fit my kitchen better...but mine was given to me...Can't beat that! I LOVE IT!

Great list! Have a great day! :D

Hi Julie! Great list!!! I love my kitchenaid too - I have a yellow one. And porches with flags - what could be better!

Your comment about the sweats made me laugh!

Tammy Lou said...

OH I am so jealous I really want that RED kitchenaid mixer....I also love old family photos..I would like to remodel a old 2 story farmhouse....Fun list

Gwen said...

Hey! This is the first time I've been over to your blog... I am addicted to Friend Making Monday Lists, too. I LOVE that Americana Quilt... Amazing! Really, I just love your list overall. Just from reading your list, I bet you have a great kitchen table that sees lots of laughter, stories, & fun.

I could not live without my Kitchen Aid mixer!

Kasey said...

I have the same red kitchenaid mixer and I love it!

I just love your site and your list this week was really good. You have the neatest ideas. I love the quilt, it looks like you have put a lot of time and love into it. I hope you have a blessed day!

I love red barns too, funny I was just telling my husband that yesterday. Great faves!

Amy said...

Loved your list, very nostalgic! It did make my heart happy to see that old red barn. :)

Heidi @ Tayterjaq's Rebels said...

Great list. I would love to get a Kitchen Aid someday but it is way down on the list of things we need. That quilt is gorgeous. I have always wanted to try to make a quilt for my kids but time just seems to slip away.
I do like lemonheads but haven't seen the chewy ones yet. I'll have to keep my eyes open for those. Thanks for the visit and the shout out.

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

You came up with a very creative list! I've never seen the new kind of Lemonheads you referred to (I haven't looked either), but I would love to try those out!

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

We have so much in common! A love for American things, Nikon cameras, and RED kitchen aid mixers!!!

Thanks for sharing your favs! I love your blog.
