My Favourite Things Friday idea came about at random as the late afternoon sun peeked through the window of my office as I was working today.
My camera was sitting on the desk and I picked it up to shoot some quick photos of things nearby. The desk sits in what is normally a darkish corner of the room except at a particular time of day when the natural light is just right. It does make my monitor a little hard to read (and the layer of dust on it all the more visible), but I love that fleeting slant of light and don't bother to get up and adjust the blinds.
This pottery cup is from my sister, who was going to donate it to Goodwill when she moved a couple years ago. I gave it a good home instead. It's the perfect size to hold the phone.
And a stray guitar pick.
It sits on a sweet, heart-shaped crocheted coaster from Mary.
Straight ahead, above the monitor, is a spiderweb quilted wall hanging I made last October, and a vintage Beistle skeleton.
On the wall to the right, one of my favorite photos of my daughter. Hard to believe it's been six years since this was taken. She's got a birthday next week!
To the left above my desk are some favorite vacation photos from a family trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan some years ago. Lighthouses, waterfalls, and beaches were some of the sights we saw. My daughter was picking out her favorite smooth rocks along the Lake Superior shoreline, many of which came home with us.
And finally, propped in the the corner on top of my scanner is this little softie. Too cute to scare anyone properly, but he makes me smile.
So there you have a mini tour of my immediate vicinity as I sit here at my desk. It's only a glimpse of what's in front of me in this corner. I'll save the view of rest of the room for another time. Hint: It includes Pyrex. :)
Thanks for visiting! Now I'm off to peer into your world for a bit...
