I love the sweet little bunny lamp...but I'm still trying to figure out what the heck "monkey bread" is. Or do I want to know? I mean....you are the woman who ate a whole lot of live zebras!

Hello BJ Your post is so sweet today. It is like going down memory lane. Your mom's quilt is wonderful, and the flag is awesome. Oh heck, I like all of your favorites. Most of all it is great that you are feeling up to posting.

I love your favorites, of course, I think we have very similar tastes. The quilt your mother made is spectacular! The painted tim flag, beautiful. Johnny Cash, amazing. Funny story, my husband checked out a Johnny Cash cd from the library much to our teenage daughters dismay, after hearing it, they bought him an album and listened to it constnatly! Got their friends all turned on to him too. We laughed so hard. Just goes to show how great he is:>)

Hi Sweet BJ,

I love all of your favorite things too! I don't think I could pick a favorite, but I have a special fondness for the Little Rock brick. I'm so homesick for family in Arkansas. Hope you are having a wonderful day :)

Hugs,
Dena

Hi BJ, Loved seeing all you favorite things. I always think it's neat how our favorite things are never the more expensive or fancy things we might own, but instead are those "things" that hold our warmest memories. :-)
Love,
Susan

Monkey bread, the man in black, Americana - all my favorites too. And yes - I also had a star before stars were in. Your mother's quilt is a treasure - you don't need me to tell you that. I really enjoy your blog.

I so enjoyed your "favorite things" especially the quilt. We always have monkey bread on Christmas morning. Do you know why it's called monkey bread?
