I believe in daydreams

I believe in daydreams and warm cups of tea
Hand written postcards sent from you to me 

I believe in laughter shared with a friend
Long summer days that you never want to end

 I believe in lips that speak only of love
 The greatest of all reigns from up above

A New Dawn

A new dawn broke through winter's chill
And with it, I could sense a thrill
From within me hope began to spill
It watered my garden of dreams and will 
Like Lillie's, and pretty daffodils 
My heart began to blossom and refill 
The life within me that was once so still
Now took flight like birds over hills
 The winter drew back into darkness until
The dawn of spring brought back my will

Lovely Desserts For A Lovely Mother

Mother's Day treats-Petite fours-Mother's Day candy-pastel chocolates-Mother's Day gift-Mother's Day cookies-
I've already bought my darling mother a mother's day gift, since I dislike putting stuff like that off till the last minuet, but I came across these deliciously charming desserts on  Marion's Vintage Bakery. My mom does not have a sweet tooth, but I doubt she could resist appreciating how pretty these Mother's Day Petite fours are.
I wish I could make treats like this, but I have a frightful habit of setting my mom's kitchen on fire everytime I'm in it. I think with desserts as lovely as these, my mother would overlook her smoking kitchen

Thanks for stopping by,
Ta for now lovelies

Love getting real mail? Try Postcrossing


A month ago, I signed up for a postcard exchange program provided by postcrossing.com. You can check out the website for more information, but this is the jist of how it works:
1. Sign up for an account (which is free)
2. Create a profile which includes your address and a little about yourself, including the types of postcards you like.
3. Mail your first postcard, and when a user registers the postcard number, you are then the next person to get a postcard.
4. Receive and register your own postcard.

For those wondering, these are real postcards. You can find postcards in dollar stores, post offices, or souvenir shops to send.

The site has hundreds of thousands of users, which makes it more fun, as a postcard can come from anyone in the world. I also like that the site encourages postcards rather than letters. Writing a letter to a stranger can be a little intimidating. You just don't know what to say. But a postcard offers a small space to say a little about you, like your hobbies. The task seems easier, since sometimes just putting your favorite quote is enough. And of course, it's fun to look at the different pictures of places and things around the world.

Last week, I received my first postcard from a site user :D
It was from a lovely lady named Eva, who lives and plays the violin in Budapest. Eva and I have one thing in common: we both love resting, when we are not busy. I think the card she sent is perfect. It gives me a chance to see where she lives.
