Greetings everyone! I’m Rebecca of {The Ardent Sparrow} (blog | shop) I’m thrilled to be filling in for Danni today! I adore her and her blog... And I’m honoured to be hosting!

For those of you who don’t know me... I am a jewelry designer from Canada. I’m an elementary school teacher on leave, raising my two little girls, Brennah who’s nearly two and a half and Leah, six months old. I love what I do... And I LOVE blogging... It’s like curating my own daily museum!

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to take more pictures... It’s now May, and I’m happy to say I’ve kept my resolution... I thought it would be lovely to share a few of my favourite things, by way of a few photo collages, with you today... I hope you enjoy!

My sweet little girls... Brennah May and Leah Grace... They fill all my days with pure joy!

At the time of my highschool graduation, my beloved grandmother, May, passed on all her tea cups to me... I had admired them from the time I was a little girl... And just the sight of them, gracing the shelves of dining room hutch, warms my soul...

I love, love, love cookbooks... I wish I used them more... But with two little girls, meals are pretty simple these days... There are those exciting times, with company coming, that relish the chance to sit down and be inspired...

Ah... Spring... The days get warmer, the evenings longer and I feel like everyone has a bounce in their steps... Spring came early in Ontario this year... And I adore spring blossoms... We spent a whole day, the girls and I, enjoying the flowering trees in mid April!

Candy is a staple around our house... I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it, but following Halloween each year, we scoop up all the candy we can get our hands on... It’s our thing... And I love it!

What are your favourite things?

  11. I have a special attraction to teacups may it be a pendant on a necklace or a miniature tea cup, I don't care. I love tea cups though ironically, I have never drank tea!
