Domestic bliss

I love Charlie Byrne's bookshop in Galway (! It's one of my all time-favourite treasure troves. I heard it recently opened in Oranmore, so when the opportunity presented itself to pay a visit yesterday I was delighted. And the book I bought was 'The Gentle Art of Domesticity' by Jane Brocket. This was first published in 2007 and I don't understand how I only discovered it now. The photos are gorgeous, it's beautifully written and full of everything that is just my cup of tea (in a china cup, with a home-baked delight to accompany it!). So this is the kind of visual feast that perks me up as winter draws in. Check out Jane's website and her blog under the name Yarnstorm. This has inspired my photo for today showing my Mam's blue china, the teapot set was a wedding gift from an old neighbour, the embroidered cloth is a fleamarket-find, the cake-stand was a present from my sister and the cookies were baked by my son yesterday.....ah.....domestic bliss!
