I am Grateful that I took some time away..

Your life can be as busy as you want it to be and everything is a choice, most things can wait and the only reason we think they can't is because we tell ourselves so... I am one of those people that when I have a to do list I can't rest until I have ploughed through it. It is so annoying, but it is me. 
So today I am grateful that my in laws arrived this week, they force we to take my work and at least do it in a more appealing location than my little desk at home.

We went to the The Boat House at Palm Beach....filled to the rafters with fresh produce, stunning blooms and even a few celebs. I soaked up some sun. I ate fabulous food and I was just grateful I had been dragged from the house..

Please do share the love on our little website, we need the support ;)


  1. Hello Tess

    I am grateful to you that I have read this today so I can remind myself to get away too

    thank you

  2. So pleased for you and thanks for sharing these glorious images - scrummy.

    Happy weekend,

  3. That sounds and looks wonderful. Well done you.

  4. Oh Tessa, I think we must be twins from a previous life. It drives me nuts (and my husband) that I have to tick off every item off that list. We all laugh about my OCD ways here :)

    The Boathouse looks amazing! So beautiful! I wish it was local here, I'd love to look at a different set of walls while I work :(

    Happy Grateful day Tessa!


  5. Gorgeous, and a gorgeous blog too. Look forward to following along.

  6. well done you for taking some time out and smelling the roses - so to speak. And thanks for stopping my blog... I'm off to have a sticky beak around yours :)

  7. Wow! The Boat House looks amazing. What a perfect spot to escape too.

    p.s. I am EXACTLY the same with my to do list. I annoy myself and drive everyone else crazy in the process of ticking every item off. My husband calls me "The List Queen" :)

  8. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. I agree ... it is important sometimes to just escape.

    But I do understand what you means about lists and getting things done ... I am just so like that. I am crazy with my lists .. I have this program that syncs them between my phone, ipad and computer ... so it is always with me. Sad ... yes ... but it is just part of who I am.

  9. Well deserved break, glad you had time to get away and revive. Beautiful spot, bet the rels were impressed.

  10. How fabulous! What a great way to spend the day.

  11. Great advice from the inlaws..and what a perfect spot to do it...LOVE IT! x

  12. PS just tried going to the website by clicking the button on the sidebar below your profile but won't redirect. mx

  13. I'm the same: no rest until it's all done.

    We love The Boat House too! It looks deserted in your pics, it's always packed whenever we go. x

  14. Your website is divine! I love it... think I may need to get it contact with you. I paint, and make soy wax candles... but I like making them in quirky things - like tea cups...

    I will be recommending your website to my friends. its gorgeous. x


Leave me a love note why don't you.. it makes me feel oh so spesh ...
