Pink Blossoms


Apricot blossom

This is the very first blossom I found this morning in my garden on the apricot tree... so incredibly beautiful!

Linen fabric

The freshness and the refinement of it reminded me of those fabrics I had bought two years ago in London, from one of my favorite shops in Chelsea : Cabbages and Roses.

They are such lovely and fresh linens of such a nice quality!

At that time I had sewn with those fabrics three cushions that I put on my sofa at spring time. 
I am thinking now that I could sew some tea towels with the remains.

This refined Limoges tea cup belonged to my mother.

A beautiful book I read in my twenties.

This is what I enjoy most : a nice cup of tea with a good book and peace around me!

  2. Well, today's temperatures broke above freezing for the first time in nearly three weeks, so we may get some flowers blossoming here at some point as well...after the piles of snow have melted! This has been the fifth snowiest winter ever in Chicago this year.
