Favorite is an action word in flickr-speak and one which I exercise with great frequency. At this moment in my flickr Favorites there are 1,761 photos of fabric, quilts, knitting, crochet, food & beverages, pets in adorable poses, and sumptuous outdoor scenes from around the globe. My passport expired a couple of years ago but that hasn’t stopped me from armchair touring. Browse the entire collection here. Do you have a flickr account? If so, I hope you’ll drop by and say hello.

This little video transported me to a charming world filled with birdsong. Dare you to watch just once!

For the past 24 hours I have been bursting with excitement — Jacqueline-the-Jack-Russell’s portrait was accepted over on craftgawker. Remember when I was being philosophical about my other photo rejections from craft- and foodgawker.com? I guess persistence does pay. And if persist is your mantra right now, this article about Kathryn Stockett’s 60 manuscript rejections for The Help just might inspire. I hope so — it worked for me. I’ve got some manuscript rework that’s calling me right now.

    Hey Lisa! Congratulations on your Craftgawker thing. I have no idea what it is, but if you’re happy, then I’m happy for you. : ) I love your favorites up above. Out of those I have to say my top three are Green afternoon, autumn country picnic and never alone with a dog. I seriously want to give that pink layer cake a go!

    Hi Lisa – That is really exciting. Silly me – I have never heard of Craftgawker! Just had a look – very cool site. So much to learn, so little time. Congrats to you. Looks like a great link for you! Happy Autumn Sunday. Best, Kristin

    Well, Jacqueline’s portrait is absolutely ADORABLE. 🙂

    And those chai-latte cupcakes in the collection from flickr look delicious, don’t they? Thank you for including my afghan. Hugs!
