Hello Clara
Wonderful china, especially the spaniel-looking dog sitting in most of your photos. I love the painting of the lady reading her book with a mug of tea close at hand.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my journal. I hope you'll post some photos of your journal, too. I didn't post some of my sketches because those were the pages I had written so much on. I didn't write for anyone else to read! heehee! But it's fun to see how everyone personalizes their own journal!

What a lovely and charming post. I would love to join you for tea. I am fascinated with the lovely painting. My great, great, great uncle was Jules Dupre and his paintings hang in the Louvre. I wonder if it's any relation!?! Your post is lovely.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
