Quiet time...and tea...


I love to park myself at a quiet spot with a cuppa, my journal and my IPOD..
and that was what I did last Thursday
when I started my little break from work..


my favorite spot is a cafe in a bookshop downtown..


I ordered a mushroom bruchetta
and English breakfast tea....


I appreciate quiet moments like this, alone...
watching others...
and sometimes chatting with someone friendly...

and then 
 I proceeded to the Art supplies store upstairs..
(unfortunately I didn't take any photos)
and bought some art materials to experiment..
I was happiest...

what are you having for tea today?
hop, skip and jump over to Kimmie's for a list of tea adventurers...

take care!

Oh wow! Your lunch looks wonderful. I'm ready for lunch and I won't even be eating for at least three or more hours from now. Quiet times are always nice, but art supplies for experiments are the BEST. Have an awesome Tea Tuesday, dear Steph.

Lunch looks good and I bet the art supplies were even more fun. People watching in bookstores, what could be better. xox Corrine

Hi Steph, I just wanted you to know that I have been cruising through your blog land and enjoy your posts. I also do collage and am inspired by your creations. I'm not sure how I got to your spot, but I'm so happy I found you. So, greetings from Michigan, USA. I wish you well. Keep creating! Beth
