“Things” that make me happy … randomness of my life

Hello, today i am feeling kind of “artsy” … took some shots randomly of the simple things that make me happy.

a suprise parcel from my sweet friend Crissy has arrived yesterday with oh…. so wonderful Pinon papers. i can not wait to cut into them.
The smell of freshly backed French baguette and the smell of herbs – i always have a planter in front of my kitchen window filled with basil. I love to make homemade garlic butter with herbs.

My beautiful lilac bush in full bloom… anyhow.. that one does not always make me happy because it is the main tricker for my spring allergies. Talking about swollen face so i can not see out of my eyes.

Lilac My sweet happy Pixie after i let her snatch a piece of yarn from me. She than the happiest little thing.

Pixie my beautiful rose bush. It has grown this large from one tiny little stick i got from my mother-in-law. I purchased yesterday some new wooden trellises for hubby to mount to the fence so they can climb even more.

Hi what a lovely post. I like to see pictures of your cat. The blue eyes are so gorgeous . My cats have Green eyes. Your gardening looks wonderful. I have yet to master that lol. Baguettes are so yummy and there are so many fillings . I am a fan of Sun dried tomatoes and pesto at the moment. Lastly those hats are so cute and look rare and warm. Thanks for sharing Kitty :D

Hi Claudia. I knew you had gotten a kitten a little bit ago but I didn't realize that our cats look so alike. I saw the picture of Pixie today and thought she is so much like our cat. We got Autumn when she was 10 weeks old from an Animal Shelter so we never really knew what breed she was but we now guess that she is part Birman. She doesn't have a tail so she must be getting that from some other breed. We love our cat Autumn as she always very happy and playful. She just turned 3 not too long ago.

Have a great day!
xoxo, Christine

Well I guess it would have been good if I had left a link to a picture of her so you could see for yourself the resemblance.

This pic was taken some time ago and so now her markings are a little bit darker.

Hello Dear Claudia, I love your post, it seems I have spent a personal & precious moment with you, I am still working on my Sound of MUsic album, and your post reminded me of Maria's song: My favourite things!
Have a wonderful day my friend, HUgs & LOve. your way.

Michelle said...

Claudia I understand your love for all of those things. I also love my garden and flowers, and wish all this rain would stop long enough to let me go out and do some gardening. You have a beautiful lilac bush, oh and also a precious kitty. Our kitty Stevie looks like she may be having babies soon! I cannot wait. I am sure you already have some allery medication, but what you said about your face reminds me of my poor daughters face, we just got some Allegra and she takes one a day, it really helps.
