Once in a while I'm asked about my favorite color. Are you? Or someone will say. White is your favorite color isn't it?

I do love white. Probably everybody sees that. But I don't often have an answer to the question of a favorite.

A color, a movie, a food, a season, one of my children. I couldn't possibly choose just a single one of any of those things.

It all depends on context doesn't it? This time of year I love more dark colors. Especially browns. But I'm sure that I'm far from alone in that! I guess it's a natural.

One of the joys of an online blog is the chance to actively embrace a lot of different delights. And some active thinking about what those "likes" are.

I tried to fit in about ten hours of fun into the "extra" hour we got this weekend, and got a lot done. On the other hand, it almost felt like a vacation. 

It was a weekend full of a lot of "favorites". Reading, a bit of shopping, a movie, a little hard work. I even talked on the phone with a few of my "favorite" children.

I also ordered a DVD of series two of Downton Abbey that was released today by Amazon UK, and it's on its way! (Maybe I do have a few very favorite things after all! :0)

Anyway, I hope you're enjoying the changes in the season!
Have a great week!
Ciao! for now!

Today, it is never really bright here in Sweden. Beautiful table settings you have made and I love the canvas that I call patchwork. Have a nice day.

Love the quilt and the china. The white linen underneath is so precious! My problem is, I have way too many favorites.

Love this post. I'm a mixed bag on favorites. Sometimes I love shabby chic, other times the all white look, and other times the browns, leathers, rich colors.
