Saturdays are for: Cream Puffs and Colour!

happy day - colourful girls
Jen Astrid Me

Yesterday, I spent a colourful and gastronomically yummy afternoon with a few of my favourite ladies. It was a smorgasborg of eating and giggles!
Eating things like homemade cream puffs by the amazing Michele, our hostess with the mostest!
Not to mention the prettiest shortbread cookies by Astrid; she created pretty patterns in the cookies using doilies! She also made them in the shape of hearts & bunnies. So sweet!
Giggling over silly photoshoots - made even more fun with Polaroids & Instax - and making funny faces.
We celebrated the harbingers of Spring - the sun & rain melting the snow and the popping up of little buds in the ground & on the trees!

happy day - cream puffs

happy day - lunch
happy day - cream puff
happy day - teatime in orange
happy day - mug full of tea

Tea was the drink of the day.
Tea is best when served in pretty cups & mugs.
Tea tastes better with the company of friends.

with Spring-minded joy,
Caren
