Hello everybody, this is Chloe, C, Clover…whatever my mom calls me. She’s been out for the majority of the day working so she offered me the opportunity to take this Tuesday post as my own and set up a little tea cup Tuesday for you all.
I don’t know about you but fall is my favourite season. I absolutely love the colours of the leaves around here at this time of year and holy smokes, I couldn’t believe the sun today! Taking the season as inspiration, I searched and searched through my mom’s treasure trove of tea cups (which is hard to do without making a lot of noise) to find two that perfectly suited my autumnal theme. The two cups I chose are both Aynsley tea cups.
I missed mom today not only because our tea cup Tuesdays are always spent together but because I have no idea how she gets me organized, manages to pick a set of tea cups, sets up a beautiful spot for tea with perfect lighting, and displays some delicious goodies to eat, all just in time for the kettle to finish boiling. Now that is a talent! Today my tea was cold…
While finding some leaves for my photo-shoot I realized how beautiful our garden is. My mom always makes our gardens feel like magical little getaways, especially on a day like today.
I’m sure a lot of you know me and I know most of you because I always read mom’s posts and your comments. I really appreciate having someone as creative and artistic as my mom in my life because it helps me see the beauty in even the most stressful of situations.
Although it wasn’t the same without mom today it made me realize exactly how much effort she puts into these posts. I couldn’t help but try to think like a photographer, “Hey, maybe I should go change into a cozy fall-like sweater to match this photo-shoot”, “Ok, one more red leaf here, a yellow one there and that greenish-orange one there”, “Damn selfies are hard to take with such a huge camera.” and “Oh my god! I’m blocking the light again!”
I’m pretty proud of myself for pulling everything together to make a post. This was great and now I have more confidence to blog on my own website but man, I’ll be glad for the help next Tuesday.
Hope you’re having a beautiful day, see you soon!
