PICTURE THIS CHALLENGE #191 - MY FAVOURITE THINGS ~ Marianne

It has to be Saturday somewhere in our world, though only Friday in mine. For a change, posting early.

Honoured to be your host this weekend and I do pray you will all enjoy my theme. 

As some of you well know from my Facebook post on Monday  has had this song from The Sound of Music in my head, it stuck and I thought , oh well, inspiration..........

MY FAVOURITE THINGS.............


You may interpret the theme any way you wish, but I chose to go literally with the words, though keeping in mind, if I went over the x 3, might get chastised yet again by boss-man Mr Mitch




Raindrops on roses

Raindrops on roses

And whiskers on kittens

Whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles …………………

Bright Copper Kettles



And warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Cream colored ponies
And crisp apple strudels

Door bells and sleigh bells
And schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

 Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad



From a sunny but cooler South Africa, wishing you an absolute fantabolous weekend. 

Much Love
Marianne

  5. Thank you Shayna and when we are finished with that song, I have got this silly song in my head from the King and I "shall we dance". Must have to do with having all those Disney Videos out for Les' grandsons to watch. It is raining here , the weather is really miserable . Typical Easter Rain and Wind.
