Good morning lovelies~~I'm feeling a little "under the weather" this morning. Felt like staying in bed longer than usual.

I thought a cup of tea and a good book would help me feel better.
I received a new book from Melissa on Mother's Day..."Winter Garden", a novel by Kristin Hannah.
I found the tea cups while down state last weekend. Kelly took me to a little shop that is (unfortunately) closing it's doors. After seeing these Royal Doulton "The Chelsea Rose", bone china cups and saucers, I just had to have them!

I love the delicate floral design, and trim. They look wonderful next to vintage linens.

Too bad there weren't more pieces, but I'm so glad to have found these. They will work well when sharing tea with a friend...or even just one cup by myself.

Even though I don't have enough pieces for a table scape...I thought this little setting would be nice to share.
I'm feeling a little better already. Listening to all the birds singing. Hearing the Morning Doves cooing their soothing calls. Watching the sun dance off the ceiling as it reflects off the water. Sipping some English tea, and curling up with a good book.
What a glorious morning.
Enjoy your day!
