When I think of 'joy' I think of my cats bathing in the sun-puddles throughout the house.
Not a care in the world.
Feeling so fine. Filled with joy.
                                                          (taken this morning)

They look so peaceful.
That's joy for me, too.

I'm enjoying a hot cup of tea in a gorgeous tea-cup
poured from a pretty tea-pot. 
With a cookie, of course.
Yes, that's joy, too.
The tea-cup and saucer is called Countryside and it is made in England.
The cookie is called Oatmeal Raisin and it is made in Almonte at Bob the Bakers. Mmmmm good!

Just let me know if you are coming for tea.
I'll grab a few more cups and get out the tea-pot with the chubby feet.
I'll get more cookies...I promise.
and we'll mix up the cups and saucers 
just to add more joy.
                           (a sweet Valentine gift from kitty-clients' Rosie, Otis & Lola )

hugs, Deb


  1. You make me long to drop by so that I could share a cup of tea with you :)
    Cats in sunpuddles or curled up in the most unexpected places in my home brings me joy too.

    Sophie and the critters in the cottage xo

  2. Your pics remind me so much of the saying "A house is not a home without a cat" or 2 or 3 or 5. Of course I could also add a cup of tea. Have a great weekend!

  3. I love that quote that ZaZa used in the comment fact it's on one of my best selling cards...

    The cats look so content...we haven't really had enough sun for long enough for the Boo to's coming though.


  4. Oh I too love the JOY when I see the kitties sitting in the sunshine! I love your blue and white teacups! Enjoy your day!

  5. What beautiful images of peace and harmony.


  6. JOY indeed! Have a peaceful weekend.

  7. I love the first photo of Ed, such a sweet face.
    You are killing me with all your blue and white cups and plants and pots, love them!! and yummy cookie.

  8. Thank you for starting my day with such lovely thoughts and beautiful, happy photos. And the offer for tea... oh, that sounds to very good today. Thank you, Deb, for the ways you touch so many lives - our and, of course, all the kitties that "belong" to you.

  10. When I next pass through Almonte, I'll have to check out that bakery...

  11. My kitty purring next to me while I do a crossword puzzle or knit is pure joy too! I wish I lived closer; I'd be there for tea for sure, XOXO

  12. We'd love to come for tea! I hope I can get the seat next to Ed. (((Sigh)))

    I'm green with envy over all of your wonderful blues. And mixed cups and saucers get my heart racing with anticipations of which beautiful patterns I may get.
    We can dream......can't we?

  13. tea & kitties! so happy i found you!!! ;}

    m ^..^

  14. Nothing ever seems happier than a cat in a how your three manage to share two do it all the time...facing each other and glaring until they drift off...

    what lovely companions to share your tea time with...

  15. I believe I will pop in for tea watch the kitties sunbathe. I can't imagine a more restful way to spend the day!

  16. The cats look so gorgeous I just want to give them a big squeeze. :)

  17. I found your blog not that long ago and am throughly enjoying it. Just love love love that black cat with the brown eyes! So striking and have never seen any other cat like that.
