On a dark, dreary day like today, little things like these bring lots of cheer, lift my heart and make me smile.
Fresh fruit on the table and shoots full of promise.
Bright and beautiful tulips on the mantlepiece.
And a much needed cup of tea with a new magazine. Simple things but so much pleasure.
Oooh such gorgeous things, Steph, especially the blouses and wow, what a tablecloth!
Steph you have the magic thrifting touch! I love those blouses so much. For me visiting your blog is a lovely cheery thing for me on a grey day.
Have a nice cuppa and enjoy!
Thanks for your lovely colourful and cheery post! It's certainly perked me up on this dull wet day.
Hope you enjoyed your cuppa.I've just bought yet another CK mug.Well it was in a reduced basket in the china shop,and it has little houses and cottages on..so how could I resist?! :0)
those blouses are so pretty, you were fortunate to find them. and I now have teacosy envy :)
Sitting here, in the middle of a nasty snowstorm YUCK! Thank you for the shot of colour...that jug is GORGEOUS!!!!
Lovely pictures Steph, and like you I love sitting with a cuppa and a new magazine, nothing beats it.
It really is the simple things that make life so beautiful. Thank you for sharing yours!
Love those itsy ditsy flowers on the clothing and love the embroidered flowers on the tablecloth and that jug ain't bad either!
Tea and magazines is how I have spent the last hour! Cheeriness is very much needed on a day like today... I was going to have a browse in town but didn't fancy it in the rain and wind!
Simple pleasures are often the best ones!
simple but GORGEOUS! xxx
Such beautiful and uplifting photos, Steph!
My absolute happiness would be in the last photo, though : tea and a new issue! I sooooo need them lately to unwind. Perfect combination!
Funny thing: I had a similar posting a few days ago!
You're welcome to check it out!
Your post has brightened my dreary day too :)
Love love the thrifted shirts, finding such treasure really helps when you are waiting for spring. And the last photo....such bliss!
Please please can you tell me which magazine you are reading there?
Simple Pleasures indeed!
Love this post!
Pretty, cheery and homey!
What a pretty, cheery post - just the job for a bleak rainy day. I love your thrifted blouses - they look gorgeous.
Lots of pretties - enough to cheer anyone!! I just love that tablecloth!!
Lovely and cheerful thanks.
What a lovely cheery post and photos.I keep looking at my Cath Kidston knitting bag which i was bought for my birthday in january.That cheers me up no end.I just love it!
What a lovely dose of cheeriness for these cold gray days! Love your cosy kitchen -- so inviting.
I see that you too are sniffing the air and thinking of Spring Steph.
Well, not only do they lift your spirits, but they lifted mine too.
That embroidered tablecloth is lovely.
We've had boiling hot weather over the past week, but we are back to pouring rain again today, with cyclone up in Queensland (im not in Queensland).
Ahh, the promise of tulips, spring will soon be in the air.
Yes, it's always a pleasure to visit you. So cosy, simple and vital. You make me smile. Thanks.
What a gorgeous post - filled me with so much hope :) x
What lovely things, I love the blouse with the pink flowers on it :) Your tea cosy is fab too :) xxx
At last a blue sky here today, pretty daffodils in an old coffee jar on my desk at work and tea and biscuits due any minute, yep, the simple things are often the best! Devx
such beauty in your posts ;0)
my daff's are starting to show signs of flowering in my sunny kitchen window ;0)
And my hyasinths are bringing such beautiful colour to grey skies.
I'm sitting here catching up on bloggy land with a nice hot cuppa x
Hope alls well with you,
Thank you for the colour,you cant beat a cuppa and a magazine(or few)!!
(have my new ck mug on the go,niiice cuppa tea)!!
This is the first time I've read your utterly charming blog. You take wonderful pictures and write about things which are dear to my heart. Seeing these bright fabrics and colorful embroidery made me realize how essential they are during gray foggy winter! Here in northern California we've had an especially long cold foggy season and it's driving everyone a little bit bonkers!
What a list of goodness. That shade of green is my favourite too. My Gran used to call is 'eau de nil' which always made me smile.
That tablecloth is stupendous.
I get stupidly excited when you publish a new post-your lovely home always looks so bright and welcoming, I want to move in! I love your red checked curtains and new blouses!x
Oh your home looks so lovely, especially the tablecloth. Fancy a lodger?
I've been reading your blog for some time,but this is the first time I've left a comment.
The blouses are so pretty, what great finds!!
And I love the tablecloth and teacosy, did you knit it yourself? Was it easy?? Sorry, too many questions!!.
Enjoy your mag and cuppa!!
