Things I like to touch....

My bed. Nothing beats crisp, cool sheets and a soft pillow to ease the body and the mind at the end of a long day.




My collection of cookbooks. Not a day goes by that I don't pull one or two out an thumb through the pages looking for something new, old or enspiring to cook.









Vintage quilts and old linens.
What fun to plunder for hidden treasures at tag sales, shops and even online.


A piece of glass, a seashell or trinket picked up from walks and wanderings.















Or a pot of herbs in the garden. Running my hand over them releases such wonder smells and brightens my day.














Nemo after a nice bath and grooming.






His skin is like that of a seal pup, smooth and silky.










But there is nothing more precious to touch than the skin of a child; especially that one little spot at the nape of their neck… this is where I like to gather kisses and giggles to brighten my day!

Very nice...I had thought of my crisp clean sheets too but of course forgot about them when it came time to post!

I guess it's not surprising that the things we love and the things we love to touch are one and the same.

So, of course, I love your post.

This is really a great post. I didn't even think about my sheets although I do love crisp cool sheets too. All of your photos are very good.

I love the shot of the baby touching the dog, s/he looks so intent! And I wanted to pop a little kiss on that child's neck, too!

I also like to run my hand across the tops of herbs to release that smell... great combination of touching...
