I have been off my game lately when it comes to taking photos and being connected on line…magpies-nest-plum-torte

but I did take a photo of the Plum Torte that Mr Magpie and I whipped up over the weekend…magpies-nest-dogwood

letting it rest overnight after baking as recommended is not easy when the house is full of delicious cake smells…magpies-nest-patty-szymkowicz-life-is-fragile

but like so many things we have to wait for in life it was worth it in the end and so delicious…magpies-nest-patty-szymkowicz-morning-sun-on-ferns

joining everyone over at Elizabeth’s T Stands for Tuesday to wish you a happy day…

  5. I haven’t been much on the computer or taking many pictures either. I like all your photo’s but the display with Life is Fragile particularly speaks to me. So true and such a lovely way to remind us of that.

  6. Your Plum Torte looks so delicious and I love your place setting with those beautiful forks and blue napkins and the “I Love Paris” mugs are adorable! I think a Fairy must live in your little house, it is so magical and such a beautiful design and colour. You have surrounded it with such wonderful plants and pieces. You have such a lovely eye for design and staging things in your home – gorgeous! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J 🙂

  13. Ah, plum torte. I’ve never made it and never had it. Plums are not big here, like apples and pecans. But I am in LOVE with all your photos and was so glad that you joined us for T this week.

    I adore the Paris/France inspired mugs. They are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing them, as well as your torte with us for T this Tuesday. And I was delighted to see yet another area of your beautiful newly remodeled and enclosed room in your house.

  14. Forgot to ask if your son made it home before the storm hit the east coast. I hope he and YOU are safe from harm’s way. I worry because I know it hit southern Virginia, and wasn’t sure where it went after that.

  17. The light coming in on your new porch much be amazing with those big windows. I bet it is a good place to read or sketch, or even just soak up the sun. That plum torte looks yummy. I have never had plum torte, but I do know all about waiting to eat something while the whole house smells divine. Happy T Day Patty. Hugs-Erika

  20. Your new room looks so lovely and inviting…just the place to share some tea and plum cake. Is that a huge rabbit’s foot fern in the last picture? I am amazed that it looks so good growing indoors.

  21. Oh plum torte! Yummy! Can I have another piece please? I make it too when plums are in season. I regret that I haven’t put any in the freezer, but there is never any left!
    I just looked at your recipe and it is the same one that I use from the NY Times (Marian Burros).
    Your French mug is very pretty and I love that centre piece place mat.
    And your new room looks divine. So light. (I love your ferns. Are they doing OK in all that light?)
    Happy T-Day,
    Have a good week,
    Blessings,

    Not been online that much either as been making busy Christmas cards and decorations, gardening and de-cluttering – currently going through loads of LP’s before donating them to charity shop. (they already had 240 of them a week ago) amazing how things accumulate over the years 🙂
    Hope your week going well… Gill xx
