  7. Today I found a wonderful watercolor sketchbook and thought of you! Obvioulsy I treated myself to it ;))
    Are you enjoying yours?
    The puff pastry stars are so cute and look yummy in the soup. I pinned them :)

  8. You made me smile with all of these simple yet beautiful things....I also love them too! You have such amazing taste!
    I think I edit in Picassa on flickr
    I am going to download Photoscape this weekend...fingers crossed!
    Beautiful post Nana dear!

  9. A lovely list of lovely things. The soup is the star :) I love Monsieur Le Lion too.

  10. I guess we like the same things, Monique. Especially those muffin liners...which, unfortunately, they don't make anymore.

    Pleased to hear Chuck Hughes is a nice guy as well as a good chef. I was rooting for him and was sorry he lost so early in the competition. It always amazes me the tiny things that cause them to be eliminated.

    As for the pizza puffs, I have a recipe (don't know if it's the same one) I got from Noble Pig and posted it last year. Will check to see if they're the same.

  11. all look beautiful and I love the soup!!

  12. I love your list . . . I would add to my list: You! (And your beautiful blog of course!!) xo

  13. ahhh, my dear, yes, we seem to love the same things. I adored this little peep into your true loves.

    Dreaming of France and all things French!



  14. I nodded regarding each of your selections!

    But what about Jacques—where's your beloved Jacques in all of this? :)

    Kidding, of course. Enjoy your weekend.

  15. Yep to everything except the muffin liners. Those don't do it for me. I'll sub flowers from the supermarket.

  16. THINGS:)

    And he reads your comments and will love this:)

  17. I love all those things too! Especially zucchini flowers and picture frames :) It's a very cute site you have!

  18. I so want to find oven-proof cloches to make an old mushroom dish.. where did you find them? Lovely montage, but then you are an artist, m'dear. You just keep getting better!

  19. The most joy in life comes from being able to enjoy and find pleasure in small and simple things. You are a woman after my own heart. xxoo

  20. The one prettier than the other..those muffin/cupcake liners touch the point of my heart too...and the lion, my favorite animal...being a Leo moi meme..what will we be without these small loves in our lives.

  21. your know i am leaving here humming :)

  22. I enjoyed sharing these:)

    have a lovely day!

  23. Again what a lovely post! I am still searching for Meyer Lemon in my little corner.
    Like you small pretty things make me very happy. I went to check out Linda; she has a treasure of a post.
    We are now living freezing rain and surrounding areas with power shortage; so far so good for us.

  24. On a quelques points communs, mais ça je le savais déjà ! ;o)
