Warm croissants from Trader Joe’s will be in the oven soon this morning, and my cup of tea will be eagerly enjoyed as I begin my Sunday. My plans consist of finishing an engaging book that has me making plans after plans for my future, possibly a nap, and finishing up a few holiday guest posts that I can’t wait to carry me away to dreamland.
This week’s Cups of Tea contain two new blogs I found this week and couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you, as well as a few bloggers that continually impress me with their insight and ability to find gorgeous images. With ideas on how to make 2011 the best year yet, a history lesson on the making of Chanel’s 2.55 bag and ample amounts of style, I hope you enjoy. Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for taking the time to again enjoy a cup of tea with me.
Dustjacket Attic is a new blog I came upon and found to be full of style, current fashion and gorgeous images. While I have seen a few of the Louis Vuitton Resort 2011 ads, I had not seen them all until I stumbled across this post. All eleven images are gathered together, and they are quite exquisite and have me begging to take my next vacation.

Recently, Thetis of Style Mood Board introduced herself to me, and I’m quite happy that she did as she has a keen eye for style and beauty and shares her insider’s take on the fashion world as she has worked as a stylist in London for Marie Claire and Red Magazine. In this particular post, she shares the immense amount of time, energy, amount of workers and a view of how exactly a Chanel 2.55 bag comes to be the luxury item that it is (complete with detailed pictures). Have a look. I think you will be impressed.
