"These are a few of my favourite things"-Chocolate round up and announcing new theme for JAN-08

                         "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
                           Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
                           Brown paper packages tied up with strings
                           These are a few of my favourite things

                          Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels
                          Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
                          Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
                          These are a few of my favourite things

                          Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
                          Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
                          Silver white winters that melt into springs
                          These are a few of my favourite things

                          When the dog bites
                          When the bee stings
                          When I'm feeling sad
                          I simply remember my favourite things
                          And then I don't feel so bad"


This lovely song from the movie-"Sound of music" totally sums up the mood of this event!, I would like to thank each one of you for the great entries and for making this a success!!, and... also looking forward to your participation every month.

The theme for this month is equally delightful and a favourite with all of us again!!!
