the letter L

L in deaf-blind alphabetTerri (Reading, Writing, and Retirement) (and isn't that exactly what I want?) tagged me (because I asked) for the meme about ten of my favorite things. She gave me the letter L...




La Luna - the moon

Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussycat" who "danced by the light of the moon."

Lamy fountain pens, which have become an obsession. Their xf nibs are smooth and elegant, and the pens themselves are just plain cute.

lace - knitted, tatted, bobbin, crocheted, netted. I just love lace. And I never, ever wear it.

Levenger (even though their version of a fine nib is unusably broad).

lemon sorbet (Haagen-Dasz!)

The maid with the golden hair: Frederic LeightonSir Frederic Leighton -Pre-Raphaelite artist whose works include the lovely "Maid with the Golden Hair"


Lorna Doone cookies - or any shortbread, actually.

Tweetie! Loony Tunes - love my Tweetie!



Hugh Laurie
Hugh
Laurie. Oh yeah.

Well, L for Lovely! Great post. I LOVE Lorna Doones - just had some last weekend for the first time in years. I found them in my Dad's cupboard and squirreled some away!

Yum, Lorna Doone cookies - for some reason as a child, I called them "Lassie cookies" - my problem is, that I see a box as a serving of one ...
