Simple Things

The beautiful blue of a robin's egg

An old chenille robe

The iridescence of a dragonflies wing

A fresh peach, just off of the tree

Fading Mail Pouch Tobacco signs on old barns

A house wren, small and plain, with the most brilliant song

A stand of wild tiger lilies

Peeling bark on a birch tree

A fresh box of crayons

The contented purr of a cat

Hot apple pie

Red, white, and blue

A dog lying on its back, waiting to have its belly scratched

Mason jars full of flowers

Warm towels

That patch of sun on the ground, and the cat lying in it

Origami swans

Children's laughter

A red door

The simple things in life are some of the best. What is it, really, about a fresh box of crayons....excitement of the unknown creativity to come? I love the smell....and oragami swans...full of grace and beauty. What a great list of simple things.

What a lovely gesture. And a lovely list. So glad the Lace KAL is introducing me to so many amazing women...such as yourself. Happy knitting!

Enjoyed your list very much....I missed it during the time it was posted. I really love this one: "A house wren, small and plain, with the most brilliant song"...wrens are my fave!

Thanks for your visit!
