Just a Quiet Moment

I just need a moment please. A quiet little retreat. An escape for just a few precious minutes. A little barrier between me and my world. Blocking out "Mama! Mama! Treat please!!" or "Diann? Do you know where....is?" A sinus infection, a headache, gone for a small window of time.

Ahhh, just a quiet moment.

A soothing cup of tea is called for. Just a little pretty moment for me. An old rose teacup on a pretty silver tray. Nothing special just pretty.

Add a found little creamer and some very cheap fake roses. Even after-Valentine Day clearanced roses from Michael's can make me smile.

A little old tarnished silver teaspoon and a new mercury glass candle holder sit peacefully together.

Someone from the past's treasure graces my quiet moment. I often wonder who "G" was.

Time to dim the lights, light the candles and relax. Quiet my space, my mind and drift away for just a moment.

Thank you for being quiet while visiting me. Would like you like to join me?

Don't forget this week's giveaway! These beautiful set of 4 salad plates!!

  12. Special moment, lovely teacup!!!
    Thanks for your visit.

  13. What a pretty setting for your beautiful Tea Cup! And how tranquil and graceful your words sounded! I run our Church Flea Market and I always think about the things that are donated esp. when someone is cleaning out Grandma's house after Grandma has passed on. I get great joy in passing those items that were once treasured by someone onto someone else to treasure and then in turn, give them another life.

  14. Hi Diann...

    Ohhh...what a sweet tea tray! Of course, I'm whispering right now...so as not to ruin the moment! Hehe! What a beautiful tea cup...I love that pretty pattern with those sweet pink roses! It's gorgeous! Beautiful roses, beautiful linens, beautiful candlelight...hmmm, just doesn't get any better than this! Thank you for sharing your tea with us, my friend!!!

    Ohhh...I'm so sorry to hear that you're a bit under the weather with a sinus infection! I just got over one...no fun at all! Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way, sweet lady!!!

    Warmest wishes,
