Slowing down...

Slowing down now...
Did I mention I've been busy this summer? I was working on my photos to post here (I promise they are coming!) and saw this one from a couple of weeks ago and it brought me right back to the moment of....
Peaceful... Quiet... Recharge... my favorite indulgence...
Tea Time and a movie!

Light a candle... now choose a tea flavor...

1/2 lump for me...
Did you know that the phrase "1 lump" means 2 sugar cubes...
a few Gingersnap cookies...
(I know the kids will sniff out my cookies so I plate some extra!)

and now the movie... a little Christopher Reeve.... sigh....

Hope your having a great week!

I agree with mom, Lost in Austen was a very good movie! I think you'd really like it!

I love your tea caddy AND the box of teas - what a selection. Do you have any Irish Breakfast tea?

Thanks for visiting my sweet friend! As a matter of fact, I do have Irish Breakfast Tea! My sister Melody gave it to me when she had a themed tea in March for St. Patricks Day, I really like it cold. ha ha I usually make a pot of hot in the morning and then later in the day when I return home, it's cooled off by then so I make Iced Tea out of it and it's good!

I lurve the tea caddy too! My wonderful Mother-in-Law gave it to me about 6 months ago and I put it to use all the time, it's lovely and a great center piece for parties in the house. I can wheel it around.... fun!

Those are the cutest sugar lumps! Wherever did you find them?

They were a hostess gift I received back in February from a tea party I had. My friend Jenifer made them for me. Aren't they the cutest! I told her she could always give me these for any reason.... My birthday or whatever day... Ha ha. She said she used her cake decorating supplies to make them.

I would love to see a tutorial! Does she have a blog? Maybe we could encourage her to show us how she did them. They are just too cute! and would make adorable gifts!! :)

Now that is the way to enjoy some "me" time! Is there room for one more?! And Christopher Reeve -- I'm sighing with you. Esp. when it's "Somewhere in Time!" And the tea and biscuits taste oh so delicious served with your elegant touch! I can stay forever! :))
