Lovely To Look At

My dear friend loves pretty things. One of the reasons (besides the peace & quiet) I like to house sit for her is that I can wander around and look at all the lovely, little treasures she has throughout her home. I'm sure she won't mind me sharing a few peeks at some of them.

I love to peek into this little cabinet ~ I know it's not the best photo, but can you see the tiny little Pomeranian (Chewy) on the bottom shelf?

These shiny glass weights twinkle beautifully on the windowsill...there is no dust allowed in this tidy home!

Watercolor paintings are everywhere ~ she paints them herself. I'm lucky enough to have several things she's done. My friend collects little "willow tree" angels and she also knits. See the little cap the "sign for love" angel is wearing!

Look ~ it's a cousin to my sweet little white fat bird! My friend introduced me to this artist's work because she knew how much I loved those little fat birds. That's one of her feather watercolors nearby. I love them too!

"When hands reach out in friendship,
hearts are touched with joy."
What a sweet friend to allow me the opportunity to feel so at home in her's.
