A Relaxing Sunday…

Blog Post - November 1

Hopefully you’ve remembered to “fall backwards” in other words, set your clocks and multiple devices back one hour and gotten that much-needed extra hour in bed.  I’m taking it really easy today, as I’ve set myself some important goals for the coming week.  What goals have you set for yourself this week? Above is a snapshot of how I plan to spend my day. Hopefully this post will inspire you to take a page out of my book and make this day a truly relaxing one, so that you can be totally refreshed for the week ahead.

And remember…

Anyone For a Cup of Tea?

Did you have a beautiful weekend? I know I did.  The weather was gorgeous, blue skies and a perfect sun, making everything look golden and happy.  I’m only writing this now, because I had a lovely 4 day weekend. I spent some of it with a very good friend of mine. We were out and about shopping at one of our favourite stores, Home Goods.  Home Goods is a store, where you go in and you’re never seen again.  We actually closed the store (we left at 9:30 p.m.) but what fun we had! Sunday was brunch with a dear friend whom I had not seen in a while.

I posted the photo above of my latest cup and saucer acquisition on  my Facebook page and the responses and likes were amazing.  What is it about a cup of tea in an elegant china cup?  One of my FB friends said that the set reminded her of beautiful sari fabric, which I must say, it does!  I’ve been collecting cups and saucers for a number of years now; due to my English upbringing, this was the way we always had tea, I’ve still followed that tradition even after my many years living in the States.

I think tea makes us think of comfort, home, relaxation and just puts us in a positive and tranquil state of mind. Tea lifts your equilibrium. Click here for my favourite tea, this is the brand I grew up with in London. Believe it or not the design and packaging really hasn’t changed that much. It’s nice to have a little piece of home on a daily basis. If you’re interested in the Brits love of tea and how it came to be, click here

I’ll be reviewing the book The Rice Mother in another posting.

Yellow Tea Cup - Compressed

Hello my Darlings…

Once again, it’s been a busy time for me, with an extended business trip to New York, and due to all manner of interruptions, I have not had a chance to blog in the last couple of weeks.  Keep in mind, I’m always thinking of you, always writing and drafting articles, which will be released in the future, or may even become an eBook.  It was important to me, to wish you a very cheery and bright Sunday.

This gorgeous yellow cup was a great find at HomeGoods.  You can go crazy in that store (as well as Marshall’s and TJMaxx) if you’re not careful.  I collect teacups and teapots (it’s the Brit in me) and could not walk away from this beauty. It’s a gorgeous addition to my collection, and to me, it represents the yellow daffodils and tulips, which are in abundance right now, and the steaming hot summer yet to come.

If you’d like to see more of the gorgeous pillow, pop over to my Etsy Store
