A few of my 'favorite things'.

I love 'things'.

Many, many 'things'.

Too many 'things',
my husband would say.

I want to preface this by saying that my all time favorite things are not things at all,
but the people and animals and places in my life.

With that said, 
I thought I would share just a few of my 'favorite things' in my home today.

It certainly is no secret that I like my flowers dried as much as fresh.

(meaning my husband :) 
would say I like them too much.

They leave their pretty little petals everywhere and actually make quite a mess.

Another 'favorite thing' of mine are frames. 

What you can't see in these photos are the stashes I keep 
behind doors, dressers and in closets. 

It's scary really. 

Even I think I have too many
for my own good.

Oh, and then there are old books.
too many.
WAY to many!

I am also crazy about the fabric of my bedroom curtains.
They have been up now for over five years and
every morning when I wake up I still smile when I see them hanging there.
I bought the fabric at the store my daughter used to have in Boise and it is a
Moda linen-cotton blend. I have forgotten the name, but I love, love, love it!

Isn't everyone's 'favorite thing' a little ironstone?
Especially with dried hydrangeas.

I could have cabinets and cupboards full of china. 
My favorites are the floral patterns and chintz pieces.

Peonies just make me smile!
Fresh or dried.

One of my new 'favorite things' are the wreaths I made after Christmas.

My shabby blue cabinet full of vintage linens and lace is definitely a 'favorite'.

Stacks of vintage floral china in the dining room is a 'favorite' for sure.
The canvas sitting on the table above is a photo of my drying roses in an
enamel bucket from the fall garden.

More leftovers from the garden.

Another 'favorite' around the house is the Gothic style church window frame
and the iron gate that sits inside it.
I found them years apart at different sales and I love how they
look together. The gate is from a set of three that I brought home
and I have used them all over the house.
At one point we used them around the wood stove to keep
Landon from getting too close to it and getting a bad burn,
so they have been useful as well as pretty.

Today my 'favorite thing' is the lavender sitting on the coffee table.
It's what was left over after taking enough from the stems for sachets I was making.

I took some of my similar white pots and vases and plopped it in.
I really don't like harvesting lavender because it kicks up my allergies, 
so the other night, I had had enough of the sneezing and coughing and decided 
to use it this way. It only bothers me when I handle it, 
so this will do and it looks pretty.

Some very dusty hydrangeas in my 'favorite' blue bucket on my 'favorite'
wire outdoor table that is residing inside for the winter.

My magazine obsession looks like it's taking over the cupboard in the photo above---
another 'favorite thing'!


Jade said...

Oh June, what a wonderful post, it takes my breath away!!! To see the flowers with your eyes is such a joy..........nobody can take pictures of them, like you do!! I looooooove it - thank you so much for all your inspiration and have a wonderful week,

hugs Jade

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Your favorite things are my favorites too! But your photos all seem to come from a different world. The bright light is amazing. What a lift! You've inspired me to keep more of my dried blooms.

Julie Marie said...

Hi June... oooh, your "favorite things" could easily live in my house too!... we both love the same "favorites", and like you, of course, people, animals and places are first "favorites"... your vintage china looks so pretty all stacked up, and your vintage linens and lace in the cupboard are just gorgeous!... love that yellow window frame too (I think it is a vintage window frame I see)?... I don't think one can have too many old books, (or magazines either!)... and your curtains are still so beautiful, they make me smile too... I LOVE lavender, but can only have it in my garden as my allergies won't handle it inside... but I do have my dried roses everywhere like you do, and yes, little petals end up all over, one day Tessy had one on the end of her nose!... loved seeing some of your "favorite things"... if you decide to part with any, you have my address!... love to you, xoxo Julie Marie

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh June,
I love all of your things ...... your beautiful dried flowers, the shabby, distressed furniture and the lovely fabrics and china.
.... and, I love your photographs ..... they look like watercolour paintings and are beautiful pieces themselves.
Keep collecting and keep showing us !!!! XXXX

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi June,

I think we all have this sickness of loving to many things..... at least we don't get carried away like some hoarders.... I hope not anyways! You posted many beautiful things I believe we all love and my favorite is the Gothic style church window frame.

You have excellent taste June!

Big Hugs~

Terra said...

Your home is filled with your beautiful taste and artistic touches, of the things you treasure. Tis lovely.

Trisha said...

You have some beautiful favorite things! I love frames too and I only want more...isn't it funny things we just can't get enough of?! Hope you are having a great week and that Spring will soon be on its way to you!


jewels in the garden +: ) said...

Dear June, you have the most amazing favorites and as I looked through them I thought... there is no way to pick just one! And then I saw that last picture ♥♥♥...
Blessings sweet friend +: )

Lara said...

What a wonderful post! I love all those things, too and you can never ever have too much of them. June, everytime I see your photos, I want to scream out How Beautiful! :) Could I please live in your photos? Love, love your photography and perfectly charming home ~ it is so you. Have a nice evening from the snowy Chicago region. ;)

Elizabeth Johnson said...

Its all beautiful. I have a great weakness for frames too and windows, and gates, and flowers, and and and.....

flowersandhome said...

Guess what? I love all those favorite things just as much as you do ;-) Don't we all. Always a delight when you give us a tour of your lovely home. Thanks June!

Anne said...

Deb said...

Gorgeous June & some of the prettiest "things" ever ♥
I took your wonderful creative idea of stringing dried roses and made some garlands for Valentine's day from my Birthday roses ~ they are still draped over mirrors in my home and I love them.
Looking through your post and photos is such a joy ♥ Thank you for sharing all this beauty.

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi June,
Your favorite things are my favorite things too. Your photos are so beautifully orchestrated that I could look at them forever. I could just see a book written and photographed by you as a best seller!
the way you dry the flowers is amazing and they bring everything to life.
Thanks for sharing all of this loveliness.


Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

June, your photos are absolutely stunning. I do dare say your favorites are my favorites. Do you do a special drying technique for your flowers? They are beautiful dried. Mine just look dead when they are dried. Your home is so beautiful, I always love seeing your photos.


Katherine said...

June, I love all of your things and the way you put everything together. It always looks like the pieces were meant to be with one another .... and only you knew that. You are a natural born stylist.

I started using a netty kettle for my allergies. Strange to use the first time, but the relief is incredible - it really works. It might help in garden/harvest season.


Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

Hi June ~ we share so many favorite things! I just love every little THING that you showed today. Magazine obsession...yes, I can really relate to's quite ridiculous really! LOL! xo

faye said...

i really like your frames=)

The Feathered Nest said...

Oh June...I just love all that you love!!! It's so wonderful when you surround yourself with beautiful things that make you smile ~ and when you smile, you're tell hubby when you're happy...everybody's happy! hugs and love, Dawn

Tricia said...

Your home and your photos are always sooo beautiful, June! I love all the white along with the pops of color from all your pretty flowers. I've been trying to take photos in my house and it's an effort in frustration since I can't seem to get enough light!

Your favorites are mine too...especially all the flowers and the magazines :)

Mimi Sue said...

Beautiful pictures and beautiful favorite things! Seems our favorites are very similar. And I think our husbands are very similar too...Mimi ;)

Faded Charm said...

Oh June, you have way too many great favorites, but that gothic church window frame with the gate really spoke to it!!!

I can tell we share the same love for flowers, both fresh and dried, which is mostly what i have around my home this time of year. I buy fresh ones sometimes, but kinda feel guilty if I do it too often(you know how those husbands get,hahaha)

Hope all is well with you!


Shabby chic Sandy said...

I love all your favorite things--they would be my favorite things too! Your home is just gorgeous :)

Leslie said...

So pretty June.. I love your shabby linen cabinet and all the stacks of dishes. There is nothing like flowers.. even as their petals are falling.. they are so pretty. The beginning of this post is perfect and you speak the truth:) well said!


Bella's Rose Cottage said...

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning beautiful June! ONce again, you have struck your magic of prose and photos in the whitest and most glorious way. Again, I find it a mystery as to how you can get such white tones...something I work on constantly, but to no avail!

The people and places that make memories for us are truly the things that we love. Anita

Half-heard in the Stillness said...

Hi June, ooh! thanks for coming over to see me this I thought I'd come on over here to see how you are doing. Your flowers are always so gorgeous, I especially love the lavender it looks really lovely! And it's so bright, how super that everything that you save comes in handy as well. It's a nuisance that it bothers your allergies cos it smells SO gorgeous! I think your lovely home mirrors your soul my dear friend!

Sending love

awal.ny said...

June your pictures are beautiful as always. I am sure you are starting to get anxious for spring as I am. I am curious how do you get your dried flowers to keep most of their color. My roses from Valentine's day seem to have faded. Have a wonderful week. Alaina

Villa König said...

Unknown said...

Oh my gosh. So so gorgeous ! I've said this before but you and I are cut from the same cloth --- I love flowers , vintage china. Linens and lace. I think my favorite is that dried hydrangea and peony wreath. Just gorgeous !!!

Cindy said...

Reading your blog posts and seeing your flowers fresh and dried is one of my favorite things. Ahhhh, how i love your architectural arch and iron gate. and... the frames are soooo wonderful, that one with all the curves is so cool and unusual. Do i see dried lily of the valley? How sweet is that... When i first found your blog and saw your dried flowers everywhere it was so great,... i didn't feel like such a weirdo for loving my dried up blooms that i had shedding everywhere...


Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

I like your favorite things....and my hubby says I have way too many....but you know what....I like it!

Diane said...

Such beautiful "favorite things". They make your home feel loved. Diane

suziqu's thread works said...

Oh June
You know the saying "Happy wife - Happy life!" You know you and I have husbands that rib us about our "things" (Jeff calls it "stuff") but they just wouldn't have it any other way.
I am sure we would live very happily in each other's homes and gardens really with the same beauty which we surround ourselves with!
Everything looks so adorable to my eyes with the way you have arranged everything so beautifully.
Those dried peonies, roses, lavenders and hydrangeas make everything look like "home". I have no hydrangeas to pick this year - they all burned in the fires!
Love so much all of your china, shabby whites and iron work too.
I know how your heart is yearning for Spring dearest friend,
Sending my warm hugs and love,

It's no wonder why I love your blog- after all - your favorite things are my favorite things- you sure know how to make your favorite things shine so much prettier in your photos then mine though!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I'm sure that your extras stored behind doors and in closets looks a whole lot better than what I have stashed away. My family thinks there's way too much going on around here and while hubby doesn't mind so much, my oldest son would love to start tossing things right and left. Your photos are always so beautiful. Your home is lovely and all the dried flowers are just gorgeous. Why is it my roses just look dead when they are dried? Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Dear June,

I adore all your beautiful things and the photographs are so gorgeous.
From the little blue cabinet with the vintage linen and lace, to all your lovely flowers.
Thanks for sharing and it made me smile, sounds a little like my husband saying that I have too many things too.
Thank you for your visit today and wishing you a wonderful weekend

How I wish I were a linen fairy. I would dive straight into your scrumptious linens and live there. It's all so beautiful June. Thank you for sharing the delights of your gorgeous home.

Have a lovely Sunday!

Junebug said...

Dear Sweet one, I have come to the conclusion when I read your blog and look at all your wonderful pictures I feel peace. Yes, the worries and stress just flows away as I scroll down your pages.

I've been gone to the NW Sewing Expo up in WA. What fun, learned lots, blew the budget, so I really needed the calming of your blog and my very own bed!!

Thanks for returning calm and peace to my life! Your buddy June

Custom Comforts said...

A beautiful post June - as always. One of my most favorite things is your blog. Your post is always worth the wait and always satisfying. Your house seems to be filled with so much light and love and it always comes through in your pictures and posts. You have been and still are, my favorite blog.

Sophia said...

Such beautiful images.....have so enjoyed discovering your lovely blog.


Georgianna said...

Dear June,

Coming here to enjoy all your things with you is a delight! I wish we were neighbors as I would be hanging out at your place getting styling and decor tips all the time. :) I love dried flowers, too, and yes, they are all over the house, crunching petals underfoot and dusty hydrangeas. Usually about this time of year I give in and toss a lot of them, knowing new blooms are coming soon.

I so love your church window – I have been looking for some for years but without luck. Maybe it's because I'll have to do some serious convincing of D to have one in the house. :)

And I'm with you on frames (stashed everywhere) and your special fabric curtains. I have a Ralph Lauren comforter that I never get tired of and looking at the beautiful fabric always makes me smile.

These infusions of beauty are so important! As always, thank you for bringing these to my day.


Madelief said...

Dear June,

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog! Yours is absolutely beautiful. How could I have missed your blog?! We have lots of things in common; the flowers, love for floral china and books. It was a joy visiting! Happy to be your latest follower.

Victoria said...

Sweet June, please forgive me if I already commented on this gorgeous post...but you visited my blog today and, with all your followers, I always feel so flattered that you take the time to visit my humble little blog! It means the world to me:) Your home is what I aspire my home to be...doesn't take a lot of money, just a lot of love and I am SO in agreement with you that dried flowers far outdo fresh ones! My hubby knows this and he gets such a kick out of how my gorgeous bouquets keep on living:)

My dearest June,
oh WOW, there are really wonder-wonder-wonderful things in your house - (and Mr. Rusty-Rose wourd say the same things like your hubby does... pfff. Men... no idea of real beauty.)
Do you want to know what my favourite in your house is? I fell in love with the Gothic style church window frame
and the iron gate. It's so special and differently as any conventional decoration. Great!
Sending warm hugs (Is there still snow in Idaho? Here it is melting now and sun is shining brightly - Jippijajey!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Hi June! Oh how I too, love your "favourite things"! I giggled through this because my hubby as well, thinks I have too many favourite things. ;)
He was just sorting through some things in our computer room and was going to throw out a few dried hydrangeas that I had cut to fit in a wooden bowl. I he said "theres so many of these petals on the floor".
Love your thoughts
and your sweet heart as always xo
