When there is nothing to watch, this is what we watch.

Thought I share with you all some fun clips and shows that showed up these past few weeks on YouTube for me to watch. This was around Christmas but they are still nice to watch even though Christmas is over. These are some of the vloggers I follow, shows I have watched, and territorials that I have learned from. Hope you enjoy them as much as me. Sometimes it is so hard anymore to find real movies and good stories. Some of our friends have even resorted to hunting for old DVD’s. And as I always remind my family, if nothing good is on those screens anymore you can always resort back to the good old days of reading classics, HT books, or creating things with our hands.What shows up in your recommendations? Always curious what is out there for us all to discover.

  1. Nicki Positano- Winter storm

Go back in her archives for this one. She has years of them. So fun to watch what it is like in other parts of the world. Nicki takes everyone along with her (sometimes her husband is near) sharing with us what it’s like living in a little Italian fishing village. Just walking along with her through her day is breathtaking to see all the beautiful seaside views everywhere. Her and her husband share their little road trips, recipes, garden tips, and many adventures of what it’s like living by the seaside.

 You know how I always bring up that the little Swedish gnomes I make remind me of grandpas. This is the movie I remember watching with my Nana years ago that is the inspiration behind that. I love this story, a perfect Christmas story that has a happy ending.

Wow, can’t believe how huge this place is. Shopping this store would take days.

This is beautifully shot. Moving art that’s what this is. Vloggers I follow that live off grid in a Swedish forest with their little baby and lots of sheep. They make their own cheese, and sausages too. Just beautiful and the music that goes with the shots go perfect together. Very talented.

 This is going to be one of those New Year projects of mine…making little tiny hand made books with paper scraps. Fun to see the whole process of how this is done.

I would love to do this shopping trip. So many antiques in Europe to see.

A really short clip to put a smile on your faces. Super adorable this one.

Reminds me of the Pioneer village museum here in our state.

You can search all kinds of places to walk through this site. I liked this one because of all the colors and items to see.

10. The man who invented more than 800 iconic toys

My husband and I both met Eddy Goldfarb many years ago while at a buyers market in LA California. I still remember that encounter all those years ago. He was so happy to share his story with us, how he started making toys, and some of his favorites he made. My husband and him talked awhile and I looked through the little toy shop he was in. Think the building was called the LA mart and it was all wholesale shops with sales reps inside. When they had the big conventions and sales the La mart was also packed with buyers that week. I remember the elevator in that building was so scary because it was a very old building and they had a sign up asking people not to over load the elevator but no one was really following it. The elevator would make a squeaking noise every time it would go up…freaked me out. I said no way, I used the stairs in that building instead. It was there that we would run into Eddy and hear his stories about toys. You will love this documentary his daughter made, it was done with love…makes it a better show that way.

 That’s it. Hope you all find at least one fun thing to watch. Most are about shopping. Guess I was missing shopping adventures as you can tell. We are staying home more to stay away from sickness. It is our normal cold/flu season here…hey, where did the Flu go? I have brought this up before. Guess that’s one good thing about 2020…it took out the flu, just disappeared and that has never happened in the history of the Flu.

 Everything is changing too fast. I like the simple stories and beautiful things to watch. If you have any fun vloggers you follow or clips you would love to share please leave a link in comments below. As always, please stay safe out there. Spread as much kindness as possible to counteract the hate and most important of all, send well wishes and many prays for the whole world.. Thank you.

    Something my daughters and I really loved watching recently on Amazon Prime was the BBC Masterpiece version of Little Women! It was beautifully made. I love Shirley Temple.

      2. It came out at about the same time as the one that was in the theaters. This one was definitely more enjoyable.

    1. Thank you, I want to make little books too. I can add little quotes, and drawings to color. They look so cute. Might be a good idea for gifts to give out too and we can use fabric scraps to recycle.

    Wonderful list of things to watch on YouTube. Those baby bunnies omg! I also watched Heidi with my Nan as a little girl. She loved Shirley Temple movies. I remember the Littlest Rebel and one other with different stories. I can’t believe it’s on YouTube. I will probably watch it soon. Thanks for sharing. I might list some of my favorite youtube videos too in a future post. I really enjoy recipe and craft videos.

    1. I know, those bunnies are so sweet. Watching them come out to meet that man and he was able to touch them, so sweet. I love little animals. I also like the Little princess with Shirley Temple, that’s a good one too. I was surprised when that show came up in my recommendations at Christmas, like a little gift from my Nana. I think that is a great idea to list favorites of yours too, so many out there it is hard to know unless others share. Have a great weekend.

  6. We still haven’t taken the time to figure out this streaming thing. But it’s moving up the to-do list.

    Your suggestions sound awesome!

    1. We bought a Roku years ago, our cable company was not happy of course and for a couple years after that they would send us a coupon deal to sign up every year. It got so bad that they offered us a $200 gift card to sign a contract with them for three years. So all we had to do was pay thousands to sign up for their lame shows (mostly medical ads, news and informercials) and we would get $200…think they thought we were fools. I rather watch old movies from the library and thrift stores before I sign up for that scam.

      1. Satellite tv just keeps going up…we’ve been with Direct for 15 years or so and we’re now paying $140 a month, yet we receive special offers of $59 a month for new customers. Plus another $70 a month for internet & home phone (which we don’t even use, but have to have for internet).
        As it stands now, I’m concerned that our internet is not fast enough for any streaming services. We aren’t very tech savvy, so challenging figuring out how to get internet on the tv. 😦
        Anyway, close to ready to switch to HugesNet which should cut our total tv/internet cost in half.

      2. My kids are good at that, I am not so smart when it comes to technical things.
