Adding a Little Luxury to Your Life ~ #1

Adding a little luxury to your life does not have to be expensive. It's about taking simple things in life and making them a little more special.

Enjoying a cup of tea is a great opportunity to bring a little luxury into your day. Instead of just plopping a tea bag in a mug and walking about your home or office with it in hand, let your tea steep in a teapot and then sip your tea from a china teacup.

China teacups can be found at antique shops, flea markets, yard sales and even at your favourite home goods shops at all price points. The Royal Standard china teacup above was found at a local resale shop and it is one I use often.

Steeping tea in an actual teapot ... also provides a few minutes of quiet time for reflection on your day.  This treasure is a hand painted Limoges France I found in a Vermont antique shop (with a sugar and creamer) when visiting my French friend Victoria. 

Whether you enjoy your cup of tea daily, weekly or occasionally make it special. 

And why not add a little treat ... these are a Greek pastry called "touloumbes" from a local bakery.

Make every day a Luxuriously and Balanced one,
