You can’t beat a nice cup of tea in a cup and saucer,  I do believe the tea-set is having a comeback as you can get such lovely designs and colours that will fit any look.  I seem to have a weakness for anything French with the Eiffel Tower on as it looks so romantic, yes, I am a romantic at heart. I just need a T-pot to go with my different cup and saucers, which are a talking point because they are not the same.

Do you remember in the 60’s you had coffee sets with the large coffee pot, I like that idea as it looks nice on the table and you can just top up as needed.  I have not found a design I like as yet but I am always on the look out in the charity shops and on-line.

So many things are coming back into fashion, it is like a huge wheel that just keeps going round and round with a few new spokes put in now and then.  Imagine having the room to save everything we had, it would be like looking in a photo album and thinking ooo I liked that dress, wish I still had it……oh yes its in the loft!

The sun is shining today, it is lovely to sit and look out in the garden but not many flowers about now so think I need to go buy some Pansies for a bit of colour.  I am looking for a hedge cutter as I have a nice thick Bay tree and I would like it shaped into a heart as it is at the back of the garden right in the middle.  I have collected lots of runners from my strawberries so I will have a good crop next year.


To go with lots of ice-cream or just plain cream.  I have a craving for ice-cream again so I think a trip to McDonald’s for a McFlurry is in order.  Have a great week everyone, I will be reading as I seem to have a few books from authors waiting for a review so will have to get my head down.  I also have some good bits in my head for my book so they need to be put down on paper before they disappear, never to be heard of again. x

    I love the cup and saucer. Funnily enough I am looking out for some too as well as some nice coffee cups and saucers.
