Tea Time

upon arriving at home every evening, i generally unwind with a cup of tea.

i found this michael aram tea strainer at a local antique dealer and allow it to hover over  my favorite hermes cup and saucer

hardly an antique…i think it may date ‘way back’ to the 1990s

Evelyne Bag – Hermes

H056275CKB5

i love a fine bag and i purchase a new one every five years or so. three years ago it was all about the fendi peek-a-boo. now…miss evelyne is on my short list. i’m admittently an old school ‘pocket book type’. not usually drawn to so casual a bag…but i’ve seen her slung on some very chic shoulders. long thick strap. easy. and that perforated logo…wear it toward the body. subtle. scrumptious. genius.
