Something Pretty

Sometimes I need

to simply look at
something pretty

and try something spicy

Thank you Indie.tea @ Darjeeling Dreams
for a great ginger cookie recipe
with diced pieces of  crystallized candied ginger.
~ I spiced them up and enjoyed them with one of my favorite autumn teas ~
Bigelow's Pumpkin Spice

Have a Pretty Friday!

Wishing you all a 
Beautiful Weekend


~ Joyce hosts Friday's Pretties every week ~
Thank you Joyce!

How I know that feeling. The need every now and then to look at something pretty, to just gaze at it. You took an amazingly beautiful picture, my friend. The softness and serenity flows into my kitchen {I'm in front of the fireplace (as shown in my latest post but now without the little feet), laptop on the table, cozy chair, big cup of warm Fall tea... do you have the picture ;) Anyway, another wonderful post by a wonderful soul.
Enjoy joy joy your weekend, Maria. Much love xxxx
