Time for a cuppa with me this afternoon and reminisce over the ‘Simple Little Pleasures’, a wonderfully written and illustrated book by Thomas Kinkade. Full of beautiful quotes and images.
‘ Take joy in life’s simple little pleasures, and experience a new sense of romance in your life. When you put just a little time and energy into the things that bring you pleasure, make you feel alive, and affirm your special interests and talents, your world becomes more vivid and memorable. And your life becomes one you can savor, with experiences that strengthen your connections to the people you love and to your own heart and soul.’ Thomas Kinkade
Take a few minutes and capture through my images our afternoon tea together. Join me in a cup of herbal infusion: Cranberry,Raspberry and Strawberry tea with butterflies,dragonflies and bugs (cupcakes). An enchanted afternoon tea.
Marshmallow iced cupcakes…bugs
This teacup is called ‘Tranquil Garden’ – Royal Albert. The artist is Fred Errill and it’s part of the collection celebrating the 30th anniversary of Old Country Roses.
‘Simple Little Pleasures’ is beautifully illustrated with cottages, filled with enchanted gardens in full bloom, waterways and lighted windows. Portraying pure romance.
‘We live in a beautiful world, one that is shimmering with romance…’
This set is Royal Albert – Val D’or. Delicate, mignon size with gold trim edging. Simplicity at it’s best!
The beautiful pink glassware is Fenton.
‘ Your own romantic language will consist of whatever brings you pleasure, whatever makes you feel alive, whatever makes you feel safe and loved, whatever is most uniquely you.’ Thomas Kinkade
Just in these few minutes I hope you’ve enjoy tea with me and sharing my love of a little romance! Hope you also enjoyed these lovely background images as much I do….dream cottages aren’t they!
