quaint

I find joy in using the word "quaint". The other day, however, I was challenged on whether or not I was using the word properly. So, I looked it up and became even more fond of the word. My favorite definition is: strange, peculiar, or unusual in an interesting, pleasing, or amusing way.

In light of these events, I've made you a list. Quaint, isn't it?

Things that are quaint:
-doilies
-lingering hugs
-sparkly ornaments
-the awkward firsts in dating (grabbing the hand, cuddling, etc.)
-the little wooden birds that people clip onto their Christmas trees
-fluorescent green antifreeze
-liquid marbles (which they actually sell at Dollar Tree, just in case you're as intrigued by them as I am).
-pomegranate seven-up


So, what do you find to be quaint?
