My Sweet Mama lives in a nursing home, and doesn't get out to shop too often. Except at Christmas, when we descend on the shopping mall and do a complete gift shop, I do the gift shopping for her. And for some reason, I do her shopping for me too. Which is great because I can pick a little something from her to me that I know she will take great pleasure in giving me. She's not that interested in giving me things like a new camera card or Starbucks card, she likes something more tactile and pleasing to the eye.
When I spotted these pale and pretty Denby coffee cups at Home Sense recently, I snatched them up quick as a wink, knowing they would make the ideal gift from Sweet Mama to me. Not only can she admire her good taste in gifts, she can enjoy her favorite cappuccino with me in one of these delightful cups. The pattern is called Natural Pearl.

I am a glutton for books, reading at least 3 per month, but I also have a passion for design books. I bought this book Pale and Interesting by Atlanta Bartlett a few months ago and have just sat down to read it through. By chance it was on my coffee table when I was snapping my photos, and I noticed that the cup and milky coffee looked particularly nice alongside the book.
Book + Coffee = Very Pretty

I couldn't resist grabbing a Ginger Biscuit to enhance my little photography session a wee bit more.
