What would the warmth of the sun look like on a grey morning?
It’s a grey old morning, a bit wet and drippy, I’ve got a cup of tea nestled in my hand, my cat is by my side (and under my nose, and on the keyboard, and under my elbow, and nuzzling my shoulder) and I found myself lingering over some gorgeous colours that remind me of the warmth of the sun, the perfect antidote to a grey day. 1000 Lanterns is by Montreal fine art photographer isphotography and I’m so delighted to have found her work at Poppytalk.
Here’s a girl who knows how to capture the gorgeous washed out colours of a summer’s day, Susannah Tucker.
Satisfying my great joy for tea and all things related to elevenses and afternoon teas, this image is from the very gorgeous and frequently visited Tea For Joy
I can’t believe I’ve just found this gorgeous garden blog, Acacia and Coquelicot. I’ve been a bit of a fan of Rummage and her thoroughly entertaining blog since I met her at Stitches and Craft Show in Sydney last year. I’m a mad garden fan, totally brown-thumbed but one of my greatest pleasures is to wander around my tortured yard with a cup of tea in one hand and secateurs in another for a bit of dead-heading, tip pruning, bug patrol and weeding. Bliss.
Fabulous tissue paper blooms found on Etsy
at Prost To The Host
. They remind me of my childhood school fetes and the tissue paper blooms I made as a little girl which my Nanna would proudly keep in a vase on her dining room table for ages.
Beautiful, colourful, softly glowing lanterns that look like a summer’s eve found at Things That Make My Heart Sing
. They remind me of the lanterns on the pontoon where Joe Bradley takes Princess Ann in Roman Holiday
. It’s always a good memory if it involves an Audrey Hepburn movie!

Enough day dreaming, back to the cold hard facts of a tax return, housework and more paperwork than I care to think about!
