Friday Randoms


I will admit that I don't go crazy with the Christmas decor, but this small holiday scene does have a place on a table.  


I recently binge-watched three seasons of Sherlock on Netflix and loved every minute.  


This is one of my favorite Christmas songs and only in this version.  


Here is a link full of book recommendations.  You are welcome.  


How about a purple beach cottage on Tybee Island?  It is on the market, but I hope the owner gets to keep it.  


Linking up with Tanya today!

  11. This is delightful. I envy you for not going crazy with decorations. I have all these sweet little German wooden figurines and every year I tell myself I'll leave some in the boxes. When I open them, it feels like the tiny angels and children and Father Christmases just look at me so sadly that... I can't resist! :-)

  21. Sherlock is great - I enjoyed greatly those seasons as well :-) A the moment I'm seeing The Mad Men - enchanted by the time travel back to 1950-1960's ... I recommend - relaxing to watch - the details of the dresses, kitchen ware, house decorations - everything is so well thought and made!

    I'm looking forward to clicking the book recommendation link, Michele, and listening to your favorite Christmas song.

  24. I like the scene in the photo, a nice Christmas touch. I like Sherlock and all things Sherlockian, like the book series by Laurie King.
