Now that all my Christmas decorations are put away for another year I thought that I would share a few of my favorite things that I love.

Just a few of my favorite things.......

Yum yum -how I love chocolate and frosted sugar cookies - the are delicious.

I love my rose books and are always looking for another rose bush.  You know a gal can never have enough roses in her gardens.  Most of my neighbors are always asking for roses for a bouquet.

I got this wonderful rose tea cup for my Birthday many years ago from  friend.  It really holds a big cup of tea and I love to have that close when I am searching for another rose bush.  I really don't need another one as I have about 150.

This beautiful rose is from Jackson and Perkins and was in their trial rose program.  I received three bushes with no names on them and had to plant them and send reports on how they were progressing.  I love how they are peach color buds and as they open you can see the beautiful cream colored petals.  Unfortunately, the rose didn't met their standards, but it is one of my favorite roses.  Maybe I should name it "My Favorite Things"

These roses are the last in bloom as the gardeners were here today and were dead heading my bushes.  They still have about 25 more to finish up next week.  I found this tea pot at a garage sale, minus a lid but it works so well for a bouquet of roses.

One of my rose books that shows so many wonderful climbers.  I really prefer David Austin's climbers as they have so many petals and their perfume is so nice.

My favorite rose tea pot along with my big tea cup and my favorite perfume bottle along with my pearls.

My beautiful statuary that is very dear to me of Mother and Child.

You all know how much I love roosters and chickens.  I got this pillow for Christmas from a dear sweet friend who knows my likes and dislikes.  She always nails it for my Birthday and Christmas.  It is a beautiful needle point pillow.

So these are a few of my favorite things - what are your favorite things?

Please leave a comment as I read all of them and try to reply to all.
