September Song

Everyone seems to be calling for Fall as the month of September has made it's entrance. Our weather has been pleasant enough to sit out on the back porch and sip my tea and enjoy a new to me literary series.

Have you met Flavia? She is the star of these books by Alan Bradley. They are a little bit of a mystery series, but oh so fun to read. I'm already on my third book in the series.

Just a little bit of a sweet, and my cup of decaf tea to wash it all down.

I'm starting to bring out my Fall china so this Johnson Brothers cup and saucer seemed quite appropriate for today. "Pomona" is the pattern.

That is a perfect choice for a Fall tea cup! It is so pretty. I have never read any of that series. I will have to check it out at the library soon! Have a wonderful day!

The series of books is new to me and I just love the title. A lovely setting for a fall tea. The Johnson Bros. Pomona is just perfect for a sip and book a new book to contemplate!

Thanks, Pam
