A Few Simple Moments


A Happy June Monday to you! Can't the weekends just be crazy? But for as much as there is to fit in I somehow feel so much freer in summer. Don't you? There's more room to move around in. Less to wear. More fun things to do. A larger vision. Even more daylight! It's said that a change is better than a vacation. I like to keep things simple. But a SIMPLE LIFE is not easily achieved. That's why I savor having just a few moments of simplicity. 


My Victoria magazine arrived this morning! It's not always possible, but I love to stop everything when I find it in my mailbox and spend a few leisure minutes to peek at the beauty inside.



 A cool glass of water, a beautiful cloth, and a few moments to just BE can be so refreshing.



























 I hope you find a few simple moments today!
Ciao! for now!

Jacqueline

I so agree with you. Just the simplicity of having a glass of water out of a pretty pitcher and gazing at the beautiful pictures in Victoria refresh the soul ;-)

That tablecloth is gorgeous! I haven't seen too many vintage cloths like this. I think my nana liked bright bold colors!

It is always a nice treat when Victoria arrives...or Romantic Homes, or English Homes...oh dear! I didn't realize I subscibed to so many magazines, but oh they are fun! Lovely post.

What a lovely tranquil post... Quite a few years ago, back in the 90's I managed to get hold of Victoria, in our WH Smiths, it was when Victorian interiors were in fashion, I loved it, unfortunately they stop stocking it soon after, I was so disappointed x

Peaceful and pretty post. You are right about simplicity...and achieved it makes life all the more rich.

Mary said...

I feel refreshed and cooler already enjoying your ice water, pink roses & white linens! My issue isn't here yet :-)

Lavender Cottage said...

Your tablecloth is lovely and making life simple is not hard at all as you've shown.
My new edition of Victoria has not arrived yet but I look forward to it and like to sit right down when it comes and lose myself between the pages.

Yes, that WAS refreshing!

JudyBug said...

Love love love your tablecloth!! For me, Southern Lady is the magazine I want to stop everything for. It gives me way too many ideas....or so Mr. Dumpling says.

Gail said...

You live the Victoria lifestyle, taking time to savor beauty and setting a lovely table, including a pretty linen napkin.
