A bit of glamour...


I do love a bit of retro glamour and this room is positively swoon-worthy. I love the metallics, the textures, the soft colors ~ it’s all absolutely fabulous. I keep thinking that one day I shall live in a place where a bedroom such as this would be totally appropriate... hmmm, I wonder where and when that will be? In the meantime, I shall just keep dreaming.
Wishing all of you a day full of beauty...

Thoughts on tea...



There is something about a nice cup of tea that makes things better. Paired with a stack of books or magazines, or a creative task on a cold winter day, it’s even better. Judging from these posters I found on Pinterest, I am not the only person to feel this way.
Wishing all of you a lovely cup of tea and a peaceful few minutes...

It’s Downton day...


Finally, after months of waiting, the latest series of Downton Abbey premieres tonight here in the States. I absolutely can’t wait to get caught up in the Crawleys again for a couple of months. I was lucky enough to have Santa bring me the two latest Downton Abbey books for Christmas and I have been pouring through them ever since.


I already had the first two books covering seasons 1-3 and enjoyed them immensely. Each is different and much more than a recap of the previous season. They are all readily available from Amazon and various bookstores. If you love the show and are interested in that time period, I highly recommend them.


So, will you be watching?
