Afternoon Delight

It is a wet dull day, the snow has melted and the rain is falling. 
The perfect day to curl up with a book or magazine and a cup of tea. 

I always attend craft shows around Christmastime, to buy something special for that special someone.
Well, this year that special someone was me. I am a pottery gal and have many pieces;
bowls, mugs and pitchers. This year I treated myself to two mugs.


The perfect size for a tea latte.


I am escaping into the book 'The First Prophet' by Kay Hooper and drinking a Roobias Vanilla 
tea latte on this rainy afternoon. How do spend rainy afternoons?

enjoy your day!!

Those are very nice mugs.
I spend rainy days either crocheting, reading or visiting around the internet.

Your mug looks great here. I love the earthen colors. Valerie

Good for you for treating yourself this time with that nice mug.

We have a lot of rain in the Pacific Northwest but making a big pot of stew or soup with some crusty french bread, sure makes it better sometimes! xo

I like that mug a lot. I should have read a book this afternoon too!

I'm happy to see that someone else likes mugs to drink their tea!! Although I love a beautiful teacup, I'm still partial to a mug.

Tea does seem so much nicer when it's in a lovely mug. I am constantly reading and it's nice to have a cup of tea in the afternoon. I'm reading my first "E" book and the experience is not quite the same!

I would so love the sounds of a rainy day - we rarely ever have one! Sweet post and happy reading!

I would enjoy a tall cuppa Chai and if I have time, reading.

I love rainy days! I usually spend mine sewing!

Hope you have a happy day. I'm hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you're interested.

Blessings,

I LOVE this quote, Jen, and what beautiful photos!

I always go to one or two craft shows at Christmas time too. Each year I buy one additional Christmas decoration for the house.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
xo.

When I was little my mom had dishes like these. It made everything look more delicious on the plates. That mug is beautiful, and I am sure it makes your tea taste yummier.

Love the texture and words on your photo.

Hi Jen,
I like your special mug. I often drink tea and coffee from a mug. I don't always use a teacup.

I want you to know that your Giveaway should arrive any time. I have been tracking it and it is in Newmarket right now.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for sharing with us at my HOME.

Blessings,
Sandi
