First of all, you have to understand that I hate to vacuum. I mean I really hate to vacuum. As a reward for finishing that hated task this week, I decided to treat myself to a carrot muffin and a cup of tea.
So I took a moment and set a tole tray with a small Limoges plate from the consignment shop, a linen napkin with lace edging that I bought on a strange antiques-buying expedition, and a thrift store fork.
The tea cup belonged to my mother. Both cup and plate are strewn with pink roses. Sometimes a girl just needs some roses, right? ;)
Oh, and I almost forgot the monogrammed coin silver spoon -- one of my favorites.
I added some Bridal Wreath spirea in a tiny milk glass vase. And so a ten-minute tea break became a moment of grace in a busy day.
Don't you love it when that happens?
