Happy Saturday, dear Readers. I haven’t done a Social Saturday post for ages, so these photos are from the past couple of months. Lately I’ve been…
Loving– Flowers, flowers and more flowers! First tulips, then lilacs, irises, roses and soon peonies…it’s such a pretty time of year.
Reading – I just finished David Copperfield by Charles Dickens and enjoyed it immensely. I listened to this version here. My favourite quote from the book is this one, which is such a great example of Dickens’ wonderfully wordy descriptions that I had to share.
“The pigeon-pie was not bad, but it was a delusive pie: the crust being like a disappointing head, phrenologically speaking: full of lumps and bumps, with nothing particular underneath.”
Making– While I’ve been listening to David Copperfield, I’ve been busy sewing up a storm. Some projects have turned out well, others not so well. It’s all learning experience. And soon I’ll have a few new pieces for my summer capsule wardrobe.
ps- my mom’s snake plant bloomed! Apparently, it’s pretty rare for them to do so.
Watching– I was reminded of the Peter Rabbit show we watched when I was a kid and so I searched out a clip of the introduction song. I love absolutely everything about it so much- this is my childhood in one short clip.
Finding– Thrifted treasures! My sister and I went to a bunch of garage sales and thrift shops and found so many goodies, including a Beatrix Potter calendar from 1979 (This one was a gift from my sister. I could actually use the calendar next year since it will fall on the correct days!), some vintage books, bamboo purse handles, a Jadeite mug, some blue and white transferware dishes, wooden rulers (I can’t pass up a good wooden ruler!), and (not pictured) some wooden crates.
Thankful For– Tea parties! This picture is from one earlier this spring. It’s nice to have an occasion to pull out all the teacups and linens.
Well, that’s all for now. I’ve been up to my ears lately in renovations, so I’ll probably be working away at that this weekend. I hope you are doing well and that you have a wonderful day, whatever you have planned. ❤︎
