Now, I love me my tea, but with all due respect to Mr. Wilde, I disagree. There are SO many more than that. Even this photo that captures a few that I'm looking forward to this weekend doesn't come close--there are my family, friends, worshipping God, music, sunshine, the smell of the air after the rain, knitting, making things, petting cats or other animals, finding a really clever word while playing Scrabble, cuddling, chocolate... the list is actually quite long.

Tea, books, knitting, eating, cuddling, chocolate... This is a small celebration of some of my favourite simple pleasures. What makes your list?
Shows, artists, labels, memes, and, of course, tea!
