I am a girly girl so naturally I am very happy to see pale pink back this Fall. I am also head over heels for this coat and if pink is not your color what about a handbag? Think pink girls! Have a most wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

Tea


Here I stand in the gardens of The Orangery in London back in August . My husband and I had a delightful afternoon of tea, champagne, sweets, and walking the gardens, but honestly, my most cherished memory of tea was experienced in Bath a year prior to our afternoon of high tea. I was on a day tour of Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge, and while walking around our second stop, it really started to pour so I ducked in to this little lunch place that serves tea in the afternoon. I asked if they were still serving lunch, the answer was no - only tea (it was about 4:30) so I ordered tea and scones. I have never really cared for scones here in the States.  They always seemed so dry, but I thought I would give it a try and boy was I pleasantly surprised! They scones were so delicious, moist, and served with clotted cream and homemade jam. I was in heaven....the rain, warm cup of tea, and the most tasty snack I have ever experienced .

Two years later, I finally decided to make them myself, and I am very happy with the results! So as the cooler season starts to set in, I can't think of a better way to spend my afternoon then recreating my cozy afternoon in Bath.
I was very happy with the recipe I found at About Food. It was easy and only took about 30 mins to make and scones were moist and very buttery. I served my scones with Double Cream, which I found at Cost Plus World Market and a high quality jam.

What I fancy....Autumn

I love Autumn. No really, I do! Shaun and I married in the Fall and my birthday happens to fall during this glorious season and do I need to mention Thanksgiving Dinner? For a homemaker, such as myself, this is a lovely time of year. All I can think about is baking, making our home cozy, and comfort food with good friends. Here are a few of my current cravings to add the warmth of the season to your home. Have a wonderful weekend!

Sweetest regards,
Nickie

What I Fancy....Plaid

It's no secret I love plaid. And not just the holidays, I love it all year long! A small glimpse to show you my appreciation of plaid, a few of the pieces adorned on my wall in the living room. I will never stop buying plaid! It's a timeless, rich, classic print that will never go out of style and I love that it reflects my UK roots (along with many other roots, my sister and I are mutts)!

I think one of the reasons I am so drawn to Fall and Winter is that it is the time plaid shows up in retail. Clothing, holiday decor..It exudes a warm cozy feeling. So this time of year, I can go crazy and add to my growing collection, fashion AND decor. Here is just a SMIDGE of what I am coveting right now...

Plaid and Leather



It's hot in the Bay Area. You can walk around at the end of September, still in shorts and a tee but I am over it! I need to start sharing my fall looks! For the past couple of years I have been coveting over-the-knee boots and this season I gave into this craving. Not only are these boots sexy and stylish they are versatile too as I will demonstrate throughout cooler months..well in this case not so cool month.
