The Vintage Tea Party Book

Last Monday I had the afternoon off which gave me some time to wander through the city. I ended up in a really great bookstore, where I found this book:

I spent the rest of the afternoon dreaming about making all the nice snacks, cakes, cookies etc. which are in the book and about organizing all kinds of teaparties for people. All in vintagestyle ofcourse! To be continued :)

It is starting to look a lot like spring... my living room that is. Today it was raining cats and dogs. But a few days ago I took my tulips and blossom branches to the balcony for a photo session in the sun! Give me more, give me more!
