Perfect Mondays...

Some Mondays I feel like hiding in the back of an antique bookshop... Just me and all the most wonderful adventures ever written, hanging out for the day, or if I got lost, perhaps even the week.


And where would I begin, with the classics, the new age or perhaps the modernists? Ms. Woolf has been calling me to me of late.  Yes, I do believe that with a pot of tea (or several) this would be the perfect Monday indeed.

What's your perfect Monday?

Much Love

  1. Book shelf porn! Awesome! While I still enjoy the romance of curling up with a book and tea, I have been converted to an e-book reader. Given that some of the books I read are as heavy as a large dictionary, it's been nice to hold a light reader instead. Doesn't hurt so much when I fall asleep and it falls on my face!

  2. What gorgeous photos.

    Reading with a pot of tea or two or three is very tempting indeed!!! But so is getting back out into my workshop to finish painting. No children around = freedom to do what I wish... read & drink tea OR paint... what a dilemma to have?

  3. gorgeous images. i have come across the first one before and still love it. on my perfect monday it would be drizzling outside and i would be tucked up inside by a warm open fire with a morning coffee, followed by a pot of tea while spending the day crafting without interruptions and listening to great music x

  4. What an epic images! :D

    love it!♥

  5. The perfect day!
    1. Temp about 20
    2. An empty tidy house
    3. Freshly sharpened pencils or
    4. A new pattern and some material or
    5. A trip to an op shop that sparks something creative
    7. Music
    8. Coffee
    9. A walk by the river
    10. Dinner out with family and friends
    11. Kids in bed early and a snuggle on the couch with my honey and a good movie...bliss

  6. Well, if I'm honest, the perfect Monday involves a day off! A sleep in, brunch at my favourite cafe and a leisurely afternoon to myself.

    I see you are doing the BYW course - I'm a fellow student and already a follower of your blog.
