I am on my 4th load of laundry
and the bed linen has been changed.
I have stopped for a well deserved cup of tea...
and a little foray into creativity.
Tulips with a hint of colour
Weller arts and crafts jardinere
the detailed tooling captures my fancy
subtle and suggestive
sturdy feet help support the weight
I purchased this piece from a thrift shop
and had no idea it was a Weller at the time nor did the dealer
it is a thrifty find which has become a treasure to behold.
I am wearing these to keep my spirits light
actioning brisk tasks in domesticity.
On a bright note...
the Garden issue is here!
Look at these great new garden gloves by Ethel
as seen in Martha Stewart Living
on the Humble Bungalow bed
playing with the Hostess's Pearls...
These Ethel warrior rose gloves were a gift
from my BFF on the occasion of my recent birthday
just in time for the pruning season!
(I wonder how the glove will feel?)
perhaps a wee bit jealous?
I hosted a belated birthday brunch with the family
here in the Bungalow...
I had a great time playing on the floor with grandaughter Miss Isla
and so nice to have my family gathered 'round.
My mother came as well and she was very quiet
as she took it all in...
emotion can well up and tears can so easily spill
when ones heart is full to bursting.
Mr. HB and lovely daughter poured mimosas
I made fruit salad,
lamb sausages with mint sauce,
hash brown potatoes,
smoked salmom lox with dill
mouth watering tasty pancakes
topped with a small dollop of creme fraiche
Do try these
they are a winner.
Break time is over
the tea has re-energized me so...
now it's back to the chores.
What strategies do you use to keep your spirits up
when moving through your domestic chores?
