Probably something you would like…

Aren’t these vintage French rooster stamps charming? They were originally used to teach children numbers. $34.

I am completely in love with this Ursa cub with the constellation stitched on her side.  $68.

27 Everyday Things You Never Knew Had Names

This is a great article about collecting French Rebus plates. The pictograms and words spell out a riddle or saying. Sadly, these are way out of my price range.

I have been laughing over this video for weeks now and it never stops being funny.

Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage and Eggs. This is everything that’s wonderful about breakfast food.

These Ideal Bookshelf prints by Jane Mount are as brilliant as they are lovely.

Speaking of books, my friend Amanda is a children’s librarian, and she has started a blog featuring the signatures of the children’s book authors she has been collecting since 1999. I especially like the ones with tiny illustrations!

11 Adorable Pets Growing Up With Their Humans. I love this!

I am currently watching (and loving!) Land Girls, “a popular series from the BBC, follows four members of the Women’s Land Army–women who worked on British farms during World War II for the war effort.”

Next up is Lark Rise to Candleford, “Flora Thompson’s charming love letter to a vanished corner of rural England is brought to life in this heartwarming, critically acclaimed BBC adaptation… Set in the late 19th century, this rich, funny and emotional series follows the relationship of two contrasting communities: Lark Rise, a small hamlet gently holding onto the past, and Candleford, a neighboring market town bustling into the future.”

Can you do me a huge favor? My friend Frank is entered in a photo contest at Backwoods, and his AWESOME picture needs votes. All you have to do is click here and “like” the Backwoods Facebook page, then click the little box in the upper right hand corner of this picture on page 11, second row (or whichever picture you think is best, although I don’t know how any pic could be better than this Father/Daughter rock climbing gem.). THANK YOU!

And be sure to check out the first of the BY HAND Holiday Gift Guides!

These are some of the things that are making me smile this week. What’s filling your heart with joy?


  1. Susie, this bring tears to my eyes. I cannot tell you how much I love my husband and how much loves the out of doors and how awesome it is that he shares that with our daughter. This is one of my favorite pictures of them. I would never be able to afford take him on one of the fabulous trips that he could win as the grand prize in this photo contest…thank you.

      It really helps that it IS the best photo. It really captures the relationship between Frank and Sierra, doesn’t it?

  2. Oh, and the sweet potato hash sounds fantastic!

  3. A lovely collection, as always!

    A funny: I had never heard the name for The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon… until yesterday when a friend used in conversation on Facebook. How amusing is it that I now see it again today.

      That is awesome, Jenn. I expect to hear is used in conversation tomorrow at the doctor’s office. :)

  4. Oh I MUST MUST watch Land Girls, it looks like perfection to me! Is it available online somewhere? (And it is as good as Call the Midwife?!)

  5. It totally captures them…it’s so much like that one on your back porch when he was practicing the banjo. They were just meant to be father and daughter…I’m super lucky I get to be part of that! :)

  6. I started watching Lark Rise in England when I was visiting my Mum and sister years ago. I finished watching it over here (thanks to Netflix.) It was awesome. You will love it. I must check out the Land Girls.

  7. If you haven’t looked at the 11 pets and their humans, it is too much, you should go look now!! And yes, the recipe looks mag, and the haunted toaster? It lives in the town south of were my mom lives!! Even if the announcer-dude said it wrong… As always, thanks for the post.

  8. Thanks for the mention, Susie! I just bought a new macro lens for my camera, so the upcoming pictures on the Tiny Signatures blog should be even better!

  9. You are going to love “Lark Rise”. I could hardly restrain myself from watching the whole DVD all at once on the day it arrived, just so I could put it back in the mail and wait anxiously for the next one to come from Netflix. I was so sad when I had watched them all.

  10. The arrival of several seed catalogs gives me hope, comfort, and joy. I have had my father-in-law unexpectedly pass, not so great medical news, and an adult daughter move back home with a boyfriend and a dog. Who knew seeds could make all that better?

  11. I actually visited the farm in January. You were out of town but I had a great weekend, and I actually watched Lark Rise to Candleford during that cozy weekend! Still remember that visit and hope to do it again soon!

  12. OMG. The Haunted Toaster. I am dying. Fantastic.
