Spring

Spring brings a wash of all things new. The refreshment of rain, birds building their nests and flowers waking in full bloom.


My African Violet has been so full of blooms.  I just had to take it out to the garden and enjoy its beauty.


This Old Royal Bone China sugar and creamer were purchased on one of my trips to Chicago.

My daughter brought the Russian Orenburg Lace Scarf on her first trip to Russia.
Spring makes way for summer. Taking a few minutes to enjoy the delightful spring breeze is such a refreshing way to start the day.

Cedar Key

When my hubby and I were dating, we would drive up to the quaint little town of Cedar Key and eat a fabulous seafood dinner. The food was always delicious and plentiful and the atmosphere was charming. We would relish the Cabbage Palm salad, fried shrimp or grouper and top it off with Key Lime Pie.

It has been many years since we visited again, but it sure seems like the masses have found this little hide away town.



Johnson's restaurant is long gone, so we tried the newer Seabreeze.
Although it offered an amazing view, the food was an average seafood menu. I can guess catering to the tourist crowd is never the same as when they mostly fed the native residents 
 There is a lot of Florida history buried in Cedar Key. Driving across the causeway brought back many memories of this small fishing community.

Roses for Tea

There are two things I love. Beautiful roses and tea cups.

I couldn't resist imagining what they would look like paired for an afternoon tea.
