Weekend Thoughts: Golden Moments...

Sometimes, the most precious weekends 
are those touched with Golden Moments.
Like shopping with my daughter last evening,
exploring the dainty boutiques of the city lanes
and finding the most exquisite white lace dress
{while the boys saw Harry Potter}...

Picking lillies from the garden 
sun-kissed with golden morning rays...
Discovering the most enchanting delights 
from UK based Rust Jewelery...
Finding sparkly golden beer glasses
in a vintage shop...
and sharing afternoon tea at the beach 
with a couple of girlfriends tomorrow. 
I am going to attempt to bake these 
vanilla eclairs to serve. 
Wish me luck!

I hope your weekend is also 
filled with beautiful golden moments
