Time For Pretty Little Things

I love the tinkling song of fine old china. But also the cheery tones of platters clanking in cafes. I like stealing away for lunch or coffee better than dinner. And unwrapped gifts. Small occasions are always much better than big ones. And it's nice when there's enough time to just sit and watch the sparrows carry crumbs away. . . . 

Hope you can fit in a birdy minute or two this week!

Oh so truly pretty, Jacqueline- love this post and all it's loveliness.

Your cream soup cup is gorgeous - is it Nippon by chance? Looks like it may be.

Such pretty images and sentiments - I fully agree - the smaller things are often more sweeter.

Oooo, how so very lovely! I would rather go for coffee or lunch myself. And I love to hear platters clanking in cafes. I do miss going to the organic cafe shop for my morning coffees after walking my little dog in Naples, Florida. This post reminds me of that. Sigh.

You always share the nicest linens. Yes, there is time for the birds here everyday, and always my camera with the telephoto lens nearby.

Lovely photos, Jacqueline! So cheery on this grey, snow-clogged day. I love sitting in cafes and watching sparrows take up the crumbs. Some of them are so used to it, they're nearly tame!

"Stolen Moments" are hard for "Mr.Ed" to understand...but he's coming along.
Perhaps he needs a bit more practice?
