Candles That Smell So Yummy You Could Eat Them

(Seriously...I just bought a pumpkin candle from Walmart that's mouth watering. The apple cider one smelled good too.)

(Not my actual candle - Don't be looking for this one at Walmart)

(In addition to my pillow collection, I have an extensive (aka GINORMOUS) paint sample collection. Mmmm, there's nothing like the sensation of putting a beautiful color on the wall.)

Chicken Chimichangas with Plenty of Cheese, Sour Cream and Guac
(I'm just being honest here...they're heavenly....)

(Don't worry - I don't eat them everyday)

Girly Stuff is having a party if you want to link with your own favorite things.

What a great idea for a post! Apparently, we like a lot of the same things! Love the pictures, that linen sofa is divine.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your favorite things, and I join you in mourning the demise of Cottage Living magazine. I liked it and was a subscriber for one year - I was shocked when they stopped publishing.
Thanks again for the lovely pictures!

Those are a few of MY favorite things, too. I don't even have to make my own list. :)

Girly Stuff said...

There was not one thing I didn't give you two thumbs up for! I especially love linen right now.

I miss Cottage Living too. They were all about the beadboard. And Heather Chadduck.

And my whole family could split that chimichanga!

Thanks for playing!
