Some Of My Favorite Things

I am joining Laurie today over at Bargain Hunting and Chatting With Laurie. She is hosting Favorite Things Saturday".  Be sure to check her out at http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com. I have so many favorite things but here are just a few that popped out to me today. 

This is a few picnic baskets I have managed to collect. They all were bought at GW...I have several real small ones as well that are not in the picture. I just love stuff like this. 
This wire furniture piece I found at Ross. I had been looking for something small, wouldn't take of much space and yet would look somewhat elegant in the corner of my bedroom. I looked and looked and found this for $15. The size and color was perfect and it is just large enough to hold a few of my favorite things. The old wooden chest at the bottom (I had for years), the plant holder is actually a serving bowl on a pedastal that a sweet friend gave to me and the books are my 3 favs to be in my bedroom.
I love this apothacarey jar that my friend Vicky gave to me. Every now and then I cracked the top open for a while just to let the aroma flow. Isn't it pretty?
This next glass jar my middle daughter Melissa gave to me. It is so darling. it actually holds more that you would think. Will be perfect for my lemonade party in May. 

Love my floral piece I made using leftover flowers I had stashed away along with a vase I had bought at GW for 75 cents. Looks very nice in front of my bedroom window on a column. 

And this little goody just so happens to be my husbands favorite thing today. Chocolate cake with buttercream icing on top!
Thanks for letting me share just a few of my favorite things for today.
