You always make me smile whin I see your post. It is soo lovely.
Hope you feel better. I watched the Oscars and thought it was fantastic for a woman to win director. Streep did deserve
another award. Got to go see Sandra Bullock in that movie.

Well Christopher, Earl of Rose Tea, how terribly embarrasing to have missed your Birthday! You are clearly brilliant being a Pisces and all!

Hope you all had a joyous celebration? and as for you Duchess......stop it with the migraine immediately, I bannish it from henceforth and if you even think about returning I will send my tigers to deal with you, tee hee.

Happy Monday all at Rose Tea Cottage,

Dear Duchess,
Migraines are horrible. I take an over the counter med and have had very good results for the time being.
Still they are aweful.

Jolie Rosie said...

There's always reasons to be cheerful (except when having a migraine)!! :-)

Have a lovely week!

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour dear Duchess,
Sorry you had four days with a migraine but glad you woke up today without one. I use a very (scalding) hot water bottle for the back of my head and neck - it's not the best but it soothes...a bit.
Take care my friend and take care with a good book and a cup of tea!

Beatnheart said...

Thank you so much for visiting..I hope to see you again real soon....Cynthia Wolff

Heather Jensen said...

I wish I could be there to have tea and cupcakes with you. I just love all the pretty cups and plates. It just makes it all the more enjoyable.

I am sorry to hear you had a migraine for 4 days. That is just awful! I have had them since I was a child. I finally stopped getting them whe I was in my late 20's. I take "the pill" with no periods and that was the trick for me.

Take care hun,

♥zoe♥ said...

Hello sweet Duchess!
Good morning:) what a cheerful pictures and make me happy indeed, hope you having a great week onwards:)

Karen Sullivan said...

Dearest Duchess, I suffered from migraines almost all of my life. In the past three years it has slowed down to the point that I may get one or two a year. I am sorry you are suffering, rest Duchess and don't blog until you are feeling better. We need you.


A 2 Z said...

Bonjour Duchesse,

Its my first time visiting at your Rose Tea Cottage. Its very lovely and pink. I also have a passion for tea, scones and cakes. I lived in Australia and South Africa where there is still a British "flavor" in the air. I felt I belonged. Perhaps in a past life I was British. I hope your migraine has passed. Tea will surely help.

Au revoir,


Deb Harvey said...

I'm happy that you are feeling better.

Beautiful Monday photos!

My Vintage Treasures said...

Michael Lee West said...

I am having heart palpitations--I am wild about your blog. I went to England many years ago and my husband had to lure me back home with promises of daily shortbread and all the teacups I wanted! Seriously. I am constantly scheming of ways to move to the Cotswolds. :-) Until then, what a pleasure to find your delightful tearoom!

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Duchess,

Sorry to hear that you had a migraine. I just love all the pretty pink you have shared and I am sure that would help to make you feel better.
The pink roses in the mug are gorgeous.

Happy week
