happiness.....

 Doesn't the sun shine lift you......make you happy, although I must admit that the hubster coming home with this little surprise for me made me very happy indeed........
 As did getting my china down from the attic at long last......
 It was a bit like Christmas unwrapping all my cups....and saucers and cake stands and tea pots.....
 And as you can see I have gotten down to using them all again in the blink of an eye...Here is my one and only yellow tea cup......why do I only have one yellow tea cup ........when i love yellow tea cups so much???? I must admit I do not know!
 My friends have enjoyed picking their own  tea cups when they come around......
 And i am enjoying my breakfasts on a tray again......
 As its now summer I cracked out my china scone basket........
 And made a Devon cream tea........
 Is there anything nicer......
 Been busy making one of my favourite jams
 Elderflower.......
 And here is a bunch of elderflowers soaking for cordial.....
 My whole house smelt of elderflowers which I love but the husband kept complaining it stunk of cat's wee.....

 My latest vintage finds were this lovely art nouveau mirror
 Which is sadly lacking a mirror bit.... but I couldn't resist it for the beautiful detailing
 and this set of Brambley Hedge plates......
 Which one is your favourite season......I love spring....

 I love summer too ......

But Autumn is my most favourite month of all....






Along with winter.... I must admit .... am a bit of a snuggler......

 And last but not least this lovely hand embroidered Radio Times cover....
What beautiful detailing.............. Hope that you are all enjoying this beautiful summer weather too.....time to crack out the iced tea, the home made lemonade and the Pimm's I think!
