Sunday Sketches


It's been a few days since arriving home from London and we're slowly settling back in to the daily routine of life in a quaint, little town of Colorado.  It was wonderful getting to travel abroad for the first time, meeting Michael's family and spending some time on our own to celebrate our new life together.  Do I miss London?  You betcha!  However, it's nice to be home, spending time with our family and friends.

The illustration above was inspired by our lovely and exquisite time at The Ritz in London, where we had Christmas Tea.  There was beauty all around - from the holiday decorations, to the china, to the the ladies strolling through in gorgeous gowns and dresses.  My evening with Mr. Toast was all a girl could ever hope and dream for!

Happy Sunday Sketches!

  14. I had afternoon tea at the Ritz once - I remember it as a beautiful experience and one that also filled you up for the rest of the day! Did you wear a beautiful dress like this one I wonder and then take a little waltz on the dance floor with Mr Toast?
