Flowers and Flowers

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with Cousin S yesterday, taking our time over a delicious meal, catching up on family gossip and news….and she gave me a lovely posy…

After lunch we browsed through the nearby shops, venturing in and out as we pleased, looking through racks of clothes, admiring jewellery and, in the very tiny op shop, chancing upon a delightful teacup set that found its way into my heart…

20130220-110623.jpg…I love the shape of the cup…

20130220-110733.jpg…and how it sits so prettily in the deep sided saucer…

20130220-110822.jpg…which, on its own, as Cousin S suggested, could be used to serve sweet delicacies…

20130220-110927.jpg..and the roses on the plate…

20130220-111153.jpg….oops, bit of a photo overload I see, but I do think it’s the sweetest teacup set!!…

indulge me…just one more!…

20130220-111317.jpgA cool change came through yesterday morning, for which we are very grateful, bringing grey skies, but sadly no rain. Today the sun is shining again, but still deliciously cool, and all the while I’ve been typing this, a magpie had been serenading me……wonderful! I’d take a photo, but I’m sure if a move, he’ll fly away!

Happy stitching
