Patti Basemi Dream Collection with Art Gallery Fabrics

It was really a dream come true when Patti instant messaged me and ask me if I would like to create my quilt using her new collection. I’ve been working on my pattern for a while now so I was extremely excited to share it. I know so many of you have been waiting to get a glimse of it and so now you have. My quilt was inspired by my mum, hence the reason I named it the Dottie Quilt. My pattern will be on sale this December so make sure you stay tuned for the release by following my instagram. Until then take a look at these pictures and then head on over to the art gallery and check out Daydream Fabric Lookbook.

A year dedicated to tea

My 2020 is all about doing things that bring me joy and tea happens to be a joy bringer. Tea in my household growing up was always a staple. My mom would always have teacake, tarts, pie and so much more delicious treats for my brothers and I . So while living in NYC this year I will seek out tea shops all over along with my good friend who I hosted a TV Show with a few moons back. She shares my love for tea also. For years I've enjoy tea bag tea but this year I found a love for loose tea. Here are a few photos of our tea adventures if you are a tea lover seek me out on Instagram @mrsporfiria and let talk about the beautiful world of tea. Our first stop on my tea journey was Harney and Son . It was a world of loose tea in beautiful crafted boxes that captivated my tea spirit. All of the flavors, smells I could not contain my joy it was like a child in a candy store. I took sip after sip after sip. All the beautiful colors hypnotize me for hours.

I purchase a tea with the word "Paris"on it. Of course I had too you should know by now I'm a French woman trapped in a New York Native body, lol. Paris is a fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors, and a hint of lemony Bergamot. The smell alone will transform you to a distant land of beautiful lace frocks and strings of pearls. '

Our next stop was a adorable tea spot in the village. It was a British theme shop, they had such an incredible chicken pot pie! It was small and home like we enjoy our lunch.
