April sneezes

I've been at home today, nursing a flu with copious amounts of tea
(brewed in that silver tea pot, 
which used to belong to my English Grandma Ellen
-she's now 97 and going unbelievably strong,
and I miss seeing her.),

 - slowly roasting some rosemary chicken,
(although I had to leave sensing the full flavours
up to my imagination... ),

and a little writing, reading,
and numbing the head watching 
cookery programmes with my girl.

The postman certainly knew how to pick the right day
to deliver an envelope of pure pleasure
(Antler by Kari Herer)
- a craving created by Pinterest
that I had to cave into.

So, bunged up but with happy thoughts,
wishing you every sweet thing for the weekend, x

I hope that you feel better soon. I love the image of your grandmothers tea pot, how nice to have it.

Take care, Elizabeth

Thank you sweet Michele,
such lovely things you say...

Those antlers, I know...


Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Simple flavours of lemon, onion & rosemary,
I have a feeling it was tasty :)

And thank you for your well-wishes,
a lovely weekend to you, x

Thank you lovely hannah,
I'm certainly feeling better with all these kind words
spilling in the comment box, x.

You know, I have a feeling I initially pinned
those magnolia insects via you
before later finding the antlers
and tracking them down to Kari...
I toned the saturation down a little in these,
so the real thing may be a notch brighter,
but not that significantly.
I know, these cravings -
sometimes one just has to succumb :).
And I certainly can recommend her little Etsy shop,
The package arrived safe and super-fast all the way across the Atlantic.
(and the magnolia card was a lovely bonus,another favourite.)

A beautiful weekend to you!

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thank you so much, x.
I love that tea pot,
not just because of its looks,
but because it makes me think
of my far-flung grandma
every time I see it.

A lovely weekend to you!
