On some early mornings, especially the gray, misty ones, there's nothing better than heading back downstairs, to spent a little quiet "me" time after everyone else has left the house for the day.
I've fixed myself a tray for a light breakfast,
I'll fill it up with all the essentials to keep me comfortable for the next few hours: hot tea, soft-boiled egg, croissant, fresh fruit, and of course a flower from the garden.
The lace-edged napkin, table runner, and silk place mat make me feel pretty important this morning!
I'll relax against the small silk pillow and the overstuffed, lavender toile bolsters and pillows - they help make a cozy spot even more comfortable.
This is a lovely way to start the day!
I'm going to snuggle in, enjoy my breakfast, and then get down to the serious business of re-reading one of my favorite books:
I'll enjoy this tranquil few hours, until it's time to join the real world again, and start in with the day's chores.
Unless, of course I decide to turn out the light and take a little nap.....
(You can see my other favorite spot to take a little nap here.)
Back to today: How do you spend your "alone time"? I'd love to know. We all have our own ways of taking care of ourselves. If you're like me it's often hard to justify taking time just for myself, when so many other things are screaming for attention. But it's important to take care and pamper ourselves just a little, don't you agree? Everyone needs a break from routine and daily tasks. Besides, the chores will always be there, waiting for us, when we're done with our little break from reality! So, I say - enjoy the peace and tranquility for a few minutes, and then get right back into "real life"!
Thank you for stopping by! I've got some fun projects coming up, and this year Spring will be full of surprises. If you want to see other tablescapes you can look here, here or at another pretty one here.
I hope you'll come see me again, soon.
Until next time,
