The Letter L

Lavinia at The Birdbath Chronicles did a post on the letter D.
Go and take a look at all the beautiful things that she likes.

I asked her to tag me and she picked the Letter L for me.
So here goes 10 things that I like that start with the letter L
Three more things would be love, life and of course my dear friend Lavinia.



Letters that come in the mail. (so much nicer than bills!)

Land Rover

Landscape on Waiheke Island


Le Creuset


Loaves of bread

Lily of the Valley

If you would to play, leave a comment and I will pick a letter for you.
It really is quite fun.

Have a great week


  1. Carolyn, I applaud your choices. Thanks for reminding me of so many of the L words that I like too. Lily of the Valley is the flower of my daughter's birth month, and I love its fresh sweet scent. Lavender is another favourite of mine. My handcream is lavender scented. They say lavender is very relaxing. My mom used to tuck lavender sachets everywhere, I remember finding them in all sorts of places in our house.

    Those lemons look like a lovely still life on your counter.

    This is a really fun tag, as you say.

  2. Thanks so much for your lovely comments.

    Lavinia, your daughter and I must share the same birthday month~ is she the month of May and a Taurus?

    I also use lavender handcream and place lavender sachets in some of my drawers. It does have a wonderful relaxing aroma.


  3. I used to put lavender and other interesting aromas into my oils when I was doing massage therapy.... it is good for relaxation.. supposed to help with headaches and getting a better sleep....

    My Mom used to love Lavender perfumes and soaps....

  4. What a lovely L list! I love all those, and your photos are beautiful as well. (I like your triangular tea kettle, too!)

  5. What a gorgeous post! I love lavender and lace, too!Well, all the things you mentioned are beautiful!
