It came today -- my latest issue of English Home. Alas, my mail comes way too early and so with the days chores still ahead, the magazine laid on the desk with the rest of the mail until . . .
I had a bit of quiet time in the afternoon. And what to do. A pot of tea and a couple of muffins, Bach wafting quietly through the air, and my latest English Home.
I love the magazine. It does take me back to England. To quaint bed and breakfasts. To real afternoon teas (mostly Cream Teas). To the English countryside.
A quiet half hour with a cup or two of tea and a muffin and my newest magazine and I felt restored both physically and mentally.
I don't know what happened to my subscription to Eng. Home. I used to devour those pages. I'm going to have to re-subscribe. Of course, my little spot for leafing through the pages, wouldn't be nearly as pretty as yours. laurie
What a lovely post! The china, the tea, the glow of the afternoon light ... all very magical!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Laurie -- I got it at a super price, too.
I was surprised this morning when I saw a post on my blog from another "Martha", thank you for stopping by.
I just enjoyed reading some of your blog post and so enjoyed your photos, your home and property and beautiful.
wishing you a wonderful day,
I don't subscribe but did pick it up at the book store yesterday afternoon. That was my periodical of choice as I had my morning coffee on the patio this morning. It transports me to a different place and this is one of my favorites as well. I seem to enjoy the English decorating magazines so much more than some we get here in the US.
Loved this post.
What a wonderful way to unwind and get refreshed.
Sounds heavenly to me.
I so need to find a copy of that magazine! Looks like I'll be making a trip to Borders this morning! Wish me luck!
