Life's Little Indulgences

If there's one thing I love most about Blogland, it's the lovely people you meet along the way. It's fabulous to be part of community that's so friendly, exciting and generous in spirit. Just one lovely friend I've met through blogging is Mrs Bun (aka Denise). Besides following each other's blogs, we also write letters to one another on themes that we choose. There's something really wonderful about writing and receiving letters!

The last letters we wrote to each to each other were all about 'Life's little indulgences'. Mrs Bun's letter was bursting with inspiration and as she puts it (and I hope she won't mind me sharing her wise words here), "I realise from my ponderings that I view 'indulgences' as the non-essentials of life - but the things which make life sweeter and happier."|

I was absolutely thrilled and so touched with this sensory indulgence that Denise sent with her letter. It's one of her own creations and will be treasured greatly. I put it on my bedside table and so I fell asleep last night with the wonderful smell of lavender in the air. Denise, you're such a talent and I can't thank you enough for your gorgeous kindness!

The festive season is always a time of indulgence, but that's not to say that we shouldn't spoil ourselves throughout the year too. I'll leave you with some of the little indulgences that Mrs Bun and I love the most...

A new magazine
Time (to be with family, sit and do nothing, create...)
Getting away from it all
Afternoon tea with cake and Earl Grey
Wearing dresses
Craft books
and of course...blogging!

Hello Katie,
Thank you for the lovely things you've written - it makes me feel very happy indeed - you are very kind and generous. :-)
I hope you are having a good weekend. We are happily doing lots of house-sorting jobs and with a little indulgence along the way - mostly of the chocolate variety!
Happy days to you both,
D x
