These are a few of my favorite things...

What better way to kick off my blog than a list of my favorite things?
  • Owls, and the color turquoise (as you perhaps can tell from the name of my blog!)
  • Ballet (I love to dance it and to watch it, and I'm thinking about having it as a career)
  • Writing (why else would I have a blog? I've been making books since I was about 4 years old)
  • Reading (I read constantly! I'll post about my favorite books soon)
  • England (particularly books - Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, James Herriot, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien -; movies - BBC stuff, you MUST see the 6-hour "Pride and Prejudice" and "North and South"! -; needlework, and musicians from there!)
  • "Lord of the Rings" (the books and the movie!)
  • Music (singing, listening to it, everything...and I love the band Coldplay!)
  • Milan, Italy (I think it's so cool...dunno why...I've never been there, yet, at least!)
  • Fairy tales (especially ones from Ireland and Scandinavia)
  • Nature (trees, fog, bright blue skies, the woods, rivers, fields...ahhh I miss living in the country!)
  • Animals (I've always loved them...I get along better with them than with people half the time! I especially love cats, horses, and birds.)
  • Needlework (knitting - I've been knitting since I was 5 - crocheting, sewing, embroidery)
  • My beautiful Catholic faith (you never run out of things to learn about and think about!)
