Let Music fill the air

Today I like.........more things.. maybe even LOVE THEM... but that "love" is a tricky thing...

So, just like Oprah - Julie has some fav's of her own.

Valentines cookies with messages. I made these for my boys and this one was a reject. The writing is really bad - but ya know... love isn't perfect - so why does the lettering have to be? It's a love sandwich! 2 sugar cookies with raspberry jam between the sheets. A little icing on top to sweeten the deal.

Love these vintage glasses from CC in Georgia. Presents? Sure do love those.

Ready for a spring ride with my new wheels. Bought this California cruiser. Love it.

My Leopard print coat that I bought at a "new to you boutique".
Yes, I wear it. The other day someone purred at me when I walked by. Seriously - I was not flattered but it made me laugh.

The handwritten letter that you get in the mail. And look at the pretty colored envelopes with the flourished writing on the front. Really like these. Someone took the time to sit and write and go and post the letter. If you print off an e-mail, tell me? Does that do it for you?

Vintage jewelry boxes in crushed velvet. You know - they don't give out gifts in such lovely boxes anymore. What a shame. It makes it so much more special I think. This is a love.

Skeleton keys. What doors did they open? Did you carry those big heavy keys in your purse? Or leave them under the mat because it was still safe back then? This is a like because loving a key would be strange.

Nabisco brand animal cracker cookies. They are the real macoy. No substitute please. You can bite off heads and make different animals by combing 2. I know. It's a little kids game.

Vintage bathing suits are fun to look at. The fabrics were stiff and the boobs pointed. Some of them were lemon yellow or odd color combinations. Still the girls look cute in these ones.... check out the big brief bottoms. They cover her belly button.
I just like em...

Monogram rings. Aren't they beautiful. The script initials say "proud" to me. A deep connection to your roots. Really I am in love with these.

Images in calm water. I love that it means an incredible calm in the air. I called this image "crazy hair".

And these mugs are so fun. I really like them. There are figurines inside the mugs. Imagine a little ones delight ( or my own) when you drink down your warm milk or chai tea and find a little surprise in the base of the cup. I know a blogger who likes little mice....
"Confessions of a Plate Addict" would love this too I bet.....

So share I did. Give all my friends one of each just like Oprah I cannot. But boy oh boy - would I if I could.
Love you my blogger friends.

Happy Valentines Day and Amore.

See I get to know more and more about you through your blog Julie. There's so much more to learn even though we have known each other for over 20 years.
Love is a tricky thing isn't it? You'll find your prince charming, I can see it in your animal cookies : )
See you in 3 sleeps.
I hope your boys enjoy your effort in those sweet treats you made for them.
Love You
Love Me

My grandma used to make cookies for christmas with dates in the middle...loved them.
I love the bike...me and hubby want to get us each a bike so we can start riding around here.
LETTERS, LETTERS....how dear are they!!

CC....she must be a kin of Santa's as she seems to be the gift giver.
Love the keys!! the rings, the jewelry boxes, the mugs.
