Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things…..OK, I’m in a silly mood.
That’s right, it’s Julie Andrews singing “My Favourite Things” in the Sound of Music.
Or….it could be the Alienhippy singing as she walks around her local Wilksons store.
Yes I was at it again and it gave me an idea.
I’m very into just being me, as you know!! giggle
Even if I seem a TAD bit nutty. It’s just the way God made me, and who am I to question that!!
I decided to let my bloggy friends into my world a little bit.
You’ve already been inside my head, I’m not going to give too much away you know.
But I will show you a few of my Favourite things…I’m odd, I already know that.
Now, my favourite things are probably WAY different to yours, so I will explain why I like them so much, as I go along.
The first thing, is my newest favourite thing it reminds me that I am loved. That’s one thing that I have struggled to understand my whole life. I think probably because I found it very hard to even like myself, loving who I am seemed impossible. When I look at this it reminds me of God’s love and the love of my family and friends.
On this photo you can also see one of my frogs, I call this one my psycho frog because he’s got bright red eyeballs and a very strange face. Also you can see the top half of a painting I did, I really enjoyed painting that picture…
you can view the whole painting on this link… LOST IN PAINT.
My favourite mug
This is my FAVOURITE mug…I have quite a few, but this one I TOTALLY love. It says. “When God made me He was showing off!” Isn’t that just wonderful, I just love it. He was showing off when He made all of us. I mean…just look at us ALL, we are all so very different. So unique and wonderfully made.
This is my ORIGINAL 1970’s sunburst clock, and it still works. I was given this by my Mother in law. We had one just the same as this one when I was a kid. I was SO PLEASED that this was handed to me. I just love 70’s things…hence the name ALIENHIPPY. ALIEN, because that is how I have felt all my life. HIPPY, born just a little bit too late, but loving the look!!
Just because he is SO MUCH FUN!!
I think he’s a spectrumite too….lol
This is my…. again with the “ORIGINAL” 1970’s blown glass fish. I do love my fishes and this one belonged to my Nan. I remember poking Hubba Bubba bubble gum inside this fish when I was a kid, and making bop-bop noises at him as my bubble gum disappeared inside…lol
My Nan was always two steps ahead of me, well actually not all the time. I hear I fed her Wedding ring through the slots in the back of her TV. Also I fed her fish with salt and pepper, I was only a toddler and I thought it was fish food. She did manage to save them. I was a very speedy child that was always hanging upside down and running around. I was one big fidget.
Toys off my desk
And the last photo is of the toys I keep on my desk. The bus is NOT mine, it belongs to Mr Locoman. He just LOVES trains and buses. My things are the spinning and rocking things and the little weird Alien creatures.
Well, I Hope you enjoyed my barmy post I really enjoyed writing it, I had a right good old giggle.
Thank you my bloggy friends for just being you.
AND….. accepting me for just being me.
Love you all. xx 🙂
