Things, Glorious Things- A Post of Objects

With new responsibilities this bookworm has had little time to read.  Yes, it's quite saddening, but I'm learning so much in my position that it's only a matter of time before I have things under control and can resume my regular reading schedule.  

So, I wanted to post this to prove that I'm very much still alive, and missing my community of blogging friends. I really wanted to share some recent finds that I've purchased to celebrate the new developments in my life...

First, tea parties.  Yes, I love tea parties.  

What bookworm doesn't like tea?  Well, I'm sure there are many, but to make this work we'll just pretend that everyone loves a good tea party as much as I do.  With recent discussion of hosting a tea party for my book club ladies, I decided to begin to assemble an assorted tea set.  Growing up, my grandmother frequently held tea parties for my brother and me, instilling manners, and the love of delicate porcelain beauties, such as the ones provided below. While searching on Etsy I found The Vintage Teacup, and fell in love.

Here are two that have been shipped and will soon join my collection:

Here are some other goodies for my tea/book loving friends:

What are you reading?  I'd love to know! 


  1. I love the tea set with the pears. Beautiful!

  2. Cute finds! We miss you in the blogging world, not that I've been posting much either. I'm reading American Gods right now. How are you liking The Forgotten Garden?

  3. Monica and Brenna,

    Glad you guys liked them! I got my package in the mail today!! :)


    Yes, I'm on the computer for so long at work so when I get home I just can't sit in front of a computer anymore. And I just don't have the energy to read and work out and make dinner every night. But once I get more accustomed to the schedule I'll get back into it.

    The Forgotten Garden is ok. The writing is less than stellar and the story somewhat predictable. But I bought it full price so I feel like I have to finish it. I'm disappointed though. I thought it would be much better. It just seems like a very inexperienced writer trying to make create something that's been done a million times before.

  4. Those tea sets are lovely! I'm so excited about a book club tea party...there's just something very appealing about combining tea with book discussion. I think tea/tea parties are way too undervalued by today's society!

    As for my current read, I'm about halfway through A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. It's really good so far (I love his writing) but definitely not what I was expecting.
