More about my favorite websites

adorable "Camellia Petite Yellow"

elegant "Camellia Heavenly Beauty"

One website that add the joy to my life is reading ParisBreakfasts blog on weekday mornings. The short whimsy comments accompanied by author's descriptive photos or drawings cover most of my French fascinations about teacup, pastry, architect, fashion, book... . 

While doing my readings or work, I listen to web cast archives of French Toast or Coffeetime. It provides quite a warm touch and soothing background for my study. Try the websites along with your cup of coffee or tea.  Enjoy!      (note: the first few minutes of web cast might be silent or just the last portion of radio station's previous program)

I love trays!

I have quite a collection of trays for various size of tea parties. Tea trays or platters, small or large, oval or round, acrylic or bamboo--I love them all! It helps to keep the house tidy: a large tray under the coffee maker to confine any spill, a deep tray in the refrigerator for fruits, a French platter for snack cheeses.... See what trays (or plates) can do to enhance the home deco with these before and after photos for a simple flower arrangement:
