These Are A Few of My Favourite Things, #2

This past week has been so wonderful. The beautiful springy, unseasonable warm weather; my birthday, the March break. 
Time again, to showcase a Few of My Favourite Things.

I love hanging my clothes on the line to dry.

Since we do not use a dryer (except very occasionally, part of my eco-living commitment) I hang my clothes to dry, year round.

During the winter, there are some days when hanging outside is possible, but for the most part I use drying racks within the house. So when the weather is as warm and sunny as it has been this week, I feel a bit of extra joy about being able to hang my clothes outside again... in March!

My darling Fishguy brought me beautiful tulips on my birthday last week!! 

I was able to display them in my lovely Aalto vase from Finland,
which was a gift from a very generous friend, while I was living there (95-96).

My sweet little Sugar-Plum had a friend overnight during the March break,

and THEY made themselves pancakes for breakfast. 

Pancakes with chocolate chips. Served with real, local maple syrup!

They also made me some tea :-) 
Chocolate Spearmint Organic Tea from my friend's Porcupine Creek Farm.

In my favourite cute little teapot that I bought for $2 at a thrift shop
got in my stocking for Christmas.

And one of my favourite little mugs which was a gift from my mother-in-law.
The art on the mug is by Maud Lewis.

I love how the tulips made their way into three out of four photos!
Hope you enjoyed this weeks edition of These Are a Few of my Favourite Things!

I love hanging out my clothes on the line too!! I'm almost disappointed when there's nothing to wash. :-) Beautiful flowers... pancakes look scrumptious, and the chocolate....mmmmmm....chocolate....

Have yourself a great week! xoxo
