Favorite Things Friday - October 15th

Well it's Friday in Australia even if it's only Thursday evening in Oklahoma.  So I'm on Quilting in My Pajamas' time while writing this blog.  You can pop over there for more Favorite Things (and it really is Friday there). 

My favorite things this week reside on my desk at work.  I have flowers to brighten my day:

I have a scrappy fabric heart hanging on the wall to inspire me:

And finally, I have Mr. Piggy to make me smile:

All gifts from kiddo.  She's 11 now and would probably be embarrassed to know that I'm still displaying things she made in 2nd grade on my desk.  I guess I won't tell her they will probably stay there even when she's in collage.  What are your favorite things this week?


  1. Love them all, especially the pig! :o) I have a red Octopus on display that Son#2 made for me. It's one of my favorites. :o) Happy FTF!

  2. Those are the sweetest favorite things, and I can see why they're you're favorites. Your girl may be embarrassed when they're still on your desk when she's in college, but secretly she'll be pleased too. :-)

  3. Nothing warms a mother's heart more than handmade gifts from her children does it? thay would be taking pride of place for me too. And yes they'll still be there when she's 21!

  4. What really cute handmade gifts, It's always nice to keep some of the things made by your children. I definitely agree that they would be a favourite thing, and I'm sure she is secretly pleased that you still have them.

  5. I had to go to work today with a lovely bracelet made by my 7 year old, she checked as I walked out the door that it was still on and I still have it on now at the end of the day. She sent my hubby off the other day with a couple of pictures for his desk too.

  6. They are really sweet presents :-)

  7. they are beautiful, we have a few little treasures from our kids around the house, which i love.

  8. Good choices! I love the pig of papier mache which was my favourite activity when I was a kid.
    Your work space says "happy"

  9. Loving the pig. Arent favourites made by children the best kind?

    I once wore a macaroni necklace to an exectuive meeting because I promised to wear it all day...
