Do you have "Littles"? The small details in your nest that reveal something about you?

If someone came inside your home, and were to take the time to walk around and SEE all of the tiny feathers and twigs and bits of fluff tucked here and there amongst the larger elements ...what would they find out about you?

Many times we run across a large piece and do a Happy Dance because it is what we have been pursuing for so many years, but were just waiting for the "right price".

But the "littles" are just those mini treasures that reach out and grab you, speak to some secret little joy or happy spot in your soul. They represent a time past, or a memory, or a dream, or they are simply adorable and appeal to your heart. If I could tell you what each of the selected items below mean to would take too long. Each one evokes a thought when I glance at it any given day. Some even bring to mind a blogger sister who sent me a little treasure through the mail...

I love the "littles" of nesting. They are my featured Friday Favorites for today.

If you are visiting here, I wish you the best of weekends, and send hugs to all of my sweet bloggy sisters scattered across these wonderful United States. Thank you for remembering our military heroes. Please..would you say a prayer for the families of two Marines who were killed and two Marines who were severely injured in a helicopter crash this past Wednesday in Morocco? This is where my cherished Marine is currently deployed as part of a floating patrol with the Navy in those waters across the globe.

We LOVE you Justin. God BLESS you and PROTECT you.

Oh GIRL, you have PRECIOUS littles! I do too and cherish them! It take time to dust around them but I sure LOVE them just like you!

I am praying for those families of the injured and those killed! SO SAD:( It breaks my heart to think of what they are going thru! BIG HUGS to you dear Julie and prayers for Justin!

I love that quote! I enjoyed seeing all your "littles". I do think it's the little details not the big statement pieces that really show a person's personality in their home.

Thanks for sharing your littles with us, Julie! They reveal so much about you. So precious!

Praying for the aching families right now. The pain must be almost unbearable... :-( May the Lord give them comfort.

Oh, I just love your littles! I have so many of these fun little things around that just make you smile when you go by. Hope your weekend is a good one and prayers still for Justin and the ones in the crash.

As I clean and organize and rearrange my nest (to keep my mind occupied) I find I have many, many littles too and I get a great deal of enjoyment from them. I think I have more kitties and teddy bears than anything else. You have two little dachshund figurines!! I am still trying to find some around here. No such luck yet.
I have prayed and will continue for those heartbroken families. May the Lord bring a comfort and peace as only He can and may your sweet Justin feel His loving presence and protection.
Have a good weekend. It is beautiful and in the 70's here.
