Somethings Gotta Give ...

Life has become a series of fragments for me. When I started this blog it was to share my journey of healing post accident. Along the way it became a place to escape to. And the last year or so it's become a bit directionless - looking back I suppose it has been a reflection of how I have been feeling within my own life - without focus.

This sense of what next is a mixture of my healing, wanting  needing to come out of  the cocoon which I've been in too long and spreading my wings; and those around me who don't want/can't handle the woman I'm becoming - Independent with her own voice. They say "I've Changed" - will I guess they are right ... it takes time to fully (if one ever does) grasp that they died - and by God's good grace are still here. When this realization happens ... a change(s) is sure to occur. And what I may have accepted during this time of healing is no longer what is for my highest good or acceptable to me.

Somethings Gotta Give .....

So I've decided it's time to step back a little from blogging ...

I'm going to be taking a much needed break for the month of August with hopes it will help me figure out what next not only for this little blog but for my life too!!!

Thank you for all the love and support my long time and new readers have given me through blog visits, comments and emails to check in on me and encourage me. Your thoughtfulness and kindness has made a difference in my life - you have often been the sunshine on my cloudy days.

till next time,

With Love and Gratitude,

Heels and a Cup of Tea

Hi everyone, welcome to tea this week. Not only do I have a lovely teacup to share with you , I have a fabulous creative and most talented artist to share with you.

A while back I entered a fabulous giveaway hosted by dear friend Susan founder/writer of Ava Grace's Closet. If you have not yet discovered Susan's corner of BlogLand - let me tell you you are missing some cuteness - Miss Ava is such a darling; great fashion and some fabulous giveaways! Thank you Susan for inspiring with your posts and  sharing with hosting wonderful giveaways.

The giveaway a book ... not just any book a shoe book!! Look how beautiful it was wrapped...

Wonderfully written and illustrated by Clare Grove.  I can't wait to share this book with our Goddaughter and my with my little niece when we visit together next.

As you can see Clare definitely loves shoes ... and she is a mummy of three so the book title 
Mummy Loves Shoes is brilliant!

Well if the book was not surprise enough to have been the winner ... Susan shared these beautiful cards with me. These are part of the Mummy Loves stationary range THAT IS YET TO BE RELEASED!!

Now for teacup I'm sharing today .... it's she lovely! A beautiful green canvas with golden floral decor.

and the handle ... how gorgeous? in gold with a swirl thumb rest. This teacup is so delicate the light shining in from window captures the gold of the flowers reflection. Loving the single gold stripe around the teacup and the golden pedestal. Do you know who this lovely is by?

Here it is ... stamped on the bottom of the teacup... even the teacup's pedestal looks like a floral bloom.
Dolce and Gabbana sat patiently and quietly during our tea today ...

For all my fashionista readers you can follow Clare on Face Book and get a glimpse into how she brings her books to life ... on a recent FB post she shared an illustration process for her upcoming book Mummy Loves Bags!

Thank you for joining me for tea today!

With Love and Gratitude,
