October charm

It's weekend! Time to share joys and faves:

i. How I love autumn! I had so much fun putting together autumn scenes and quotes despite never actually having seen the season for real.


ii. Check out my ABC chocolate- a gift from a girl friend on my birthday. It's too pretty to eat, which is good so then I avoid too much sugar.

iii. Would you believe I got the ceramic plate for only 32 cents? I imagine it would look fab with a slice of Black Forest or Red Velvet on it.


iv. And here's Agalico - a quiet English tea room not far from where I live. It was wonderful savoring the charm while waiting for someone who joined me for tea.

 
v. As a fan of Japanese cuisine, I explore restaurants from time to time. It's Honmoni Sushi this week where I tried their saba in teriyake sauce. The set includes miso soup, vegetable salad, egg and tofu, and pickled zucchini. Delicious.

  5. That's one of my favourite autumn quote although I'm always surprised that Camus made it. Sounds too cheerful for him :)

    Great bargain on the plate!

    Agalico has such lovely English charm. I really enjoy going to tea rooms.

  9. I love your fall background! Where I grew up we didn't have all the beauitful colors in the fall, so I have loved that aspect of where we have lived since we've been married.

    The chocolates are cute, the plate looks nice, and the tea room looks so inviting.
