Lady sings the blues....

Well after my disastrous attempts to find a cup of coffee and sticky bun yesterday, I surpassed myself today and managed not only copious amounts of fresh ground coffee and date cake but cups of Cha and digestives... it's all or nothing!
I am a bit of a tea ritualist and love the whole ceremony of heating the pot and letting the leaves brew to perfect the 'Industrial Strength' tea that my man loves so much..
So please join me in a cup of Rosy Lee...

I have collected blue and white over the years and these are the 'survivors'... being a clumsy oaf at times I have lost some choice items. I am learning not to get so hung up on breakages... there is no use crying over broken china.. or any other breakage..C'est la vie!

Finally folks.. Blue seems to feature large in my home and my bijou bathroom has turned into the blue lagoon..small but perfectly formed!

I love the whole ceremony of tea from a tea pot too and must be a china cup or maybe mug!
I love and have collected a lot of blue china too, I will have to dig some more out of the box's I have in the loft.
Your bathroom is lovely, I adore those baths. I wish I had one in this house.
I returned home yesterday and found that an armchair was missing ! I walked into the kitchen and there was Johanna (and the armchair) snuggled up by the warm aga, I just love them and your one looks vintage like my one. Lovely pictres, really enjoyed your always.
Your cards are on display in my house, I will not be sending them to anyone. I love them !

Hello Michele! Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog! I am beyond thrilled you stumbled upon me...because now I have found you! I ADORE your sweet shadow box creations. I'm off to get another cup of coffee so I can sit and pour over each page of your website! I'm adding your blog to my daily reads. Love the peeks into your beautiful home. Thanks again Michele:)
Happy day to you!! xoxoxo..jenn


Hi Michele, I am so pleased you discovered my blog as I am very pleased to have discovered yours, I am really looking forward to having a tour around, I feel from your most recent posts that we have a lot in common, I can't wait to put more onto my blog, I just wish there were more hours in the day to read them all and to write as well! Blue features a lot in our home too, and I don't want to make you too jealous but this evening we are going to tuck into a home-made lemon meringue pie, given to us by John's mum! I promise to have a good look around your blog when I have some spare time in the week. Bye for now. Louise
