Six Favorite Tools & a Linky

Suzannah of   Adventures in Dressmaking 

is hosting a  Nice to Meet You  link party

along with
Jeanette @ Artchoo
Sentrell @ Suite Seven
The hostesses are asking an interesting question: 

What are the top 6 tools that you like to use? 

Here's my list.
1.  The Holy Bible.  The Instruction Book for a life well lived.  Even though I fail so very often and in so many ways, I hate to think what I would be like without God's guidance and grace.  There are three translations of the Holy Bible on my nightstand.

2.  The Camera.  It was a Christmas gift from my Handsome Husband.  Interestingly, I think I like it best when he is using it.  I love seeing the world from his perspective. 
3.  The Greenhouses.  These were birthday gifts from Handsome Husband.  Oh, how I love them!  They are currently hosting herbs and carrots as well as protecting pots of elephant ears, lantana and calibrachoa.   Lettuce and radish seeds were planted in them just yesterday.  We have a bounty of  vegetables year round thanks to the greenhouses.
4.  Our laptops.  The lovely land of blogs is new to me.  I'm enjoying meeting bloggers from far and wide.  There are so many levels of creativity and charm.  Thank you to all the bloggers who have welcomed me into the neighborhood!
5.  My Sewing Machine.  My mother can sew very well.  She made so many clothes for us when we were still at home.  Even my prom dresses were sewn by my mom!  While I will never have her skill set, sewing makes me feel connected to her.

6.  Kitchen Scissors.  I have about a gazillion pairs of kitchen scissors.  Most of them are pink.  Some are in the kitchen.  Others are in the craft room.  A few are in the greenhouses.  If you have something that needs to be clipped, chopped or whacked, kitchen scissors can do the job!

Hmmm...  I'm surprised my crock pot didn't make the top 6.  What are your favorite tools?

  1. Great list! I love seeing what my husband frames in our camera, too. It's fun to see other peoples' perspectives via pictures.

  2. I have a great sewing machine but i dont know how to sew. I sure wish we were neighbors.
    I kinda collect bibles-i have at least 20 scattered various places around the house.

  3. I would have to say my Bible is #1. Number two would reading glasses. Three, pens. Four, paper. Five, computer. Six, patterns.

  4. I would have to say...#1: Bible. Two, reading glasses. Three, pens. Four, paper. Five, computer. Six, patterns. :)

  5. I'm seriously jealous that you have greenhouses!

    1. LOL! Thank you, Dani! The first year, I killed so many plants before we figured out how to control the temperature! -Marci

  6. What a wonderful list! You are obviously quite well balanced, with 6 tools all from different areas. This is great! Hugs, jutta

  7. Your list sounds very similar to mine had I taken the time to think about it. I don't have a greenhouse, so I'd have to think about what I'd put in its place. Probably my smart phone!

  8. Looks amazing!

    P.S. I'm hosting a $50 Shabby Apple Giveaway on my blog, you should come check it out!

  9. I so agree with you on all of these. I don't ahve a green house, but maybe someday.... :)

  10. Hey Marci,
    Great info. My favorite tools are similar to your, except for the greenhouses and the scissors. Mine other two would probably be my kitchen and counter in my office. Thanks so much for sharing with Adorned From Above.
