I was tagged by Cave Mama to do a twenty-two tiny pieces of me post, but I couldn't resist the ABCs of Happiness list I've seen elsewhere in blog-land. And, since I don't want to overwhelm you lovely readers with too many of these thingies, I'm fulfilling my tag requirement creatively. Enjoy!

I like your use of artistic license. It is a picturesque list and I found myself visualising each item as I read through. The smell of lily of the valley reminds me of my grandma's perfume. Nice thoughts.

Yoghurt with honey is about the only way I eat yoghurt. Zabayon, yes!!

Yum! Homemade spearmint ice cream sounds delicious! Would love to see how you make that.

Love your list, we have a lot of happy things in common.

I'm currently experimenting with making lily-of-the-valley perfume with fresh flowers (although I've been warned repeatedly it won't turn out as I hope and wish--we will see). If anyone has done this before and has tips, I'm all ears!

As for spearmint icecream....I'll have to post the recipe. It is so dead simple, I'm pretty sure we're done buying mint icecream.

Hi Amanda! Rhubarb strawberry pie sounds divine!

Second request for spearmint ice-cream recipe. Oh so very yes.

What a wonderful list. Homemade spearmint ice cream sounds scrummy.

Have added you to the original list :)
