Delicious morning!

There is something about mornings that fascinate me. Golden rays of light pour into the kitchen, soflty lifting the gloom of the night, tiny speaks of sundust flutters around, like little magical butterflies, the birds are chirping in the branches of the flowering pear tree, and on our table my favorite bowls are steaming hot with café con leche.

... And then....
There is bread... warm, delicious out-of-the-oven mouth watering French bread...

Fingers anticipate the breaking of the bread, the soft tender part awaits to be robed with butter and mermelada de naranja or confitura de fresas (orange jam or strawberry preserves).

My mouth waters, the sun shines, my heart is singing...

Ahhh, let the day begin!

Is breakfast your favorite meal of the day? Mine certainly is!


  1. Breakfast is a favorite meal here at our house. In fact, it's one of our favorite meals and sometimes we have it for dinner...which my children have re-named "brinner". We're having my inlaws and a friend over for Brinner tomorrow night! Your tablecloth is gorgeous!!! The pics are so charming and romantic looking. I'd like to just sit at the table and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. I always enjoy visiting your beautiful blog!

  2. I love the whole grain breads with nuts and seeds. I never get tired of toast and jam for breakfast!

  3. Mmmm Bread, I've been craving it all winter. I love the sunlight streaming across your table, making the glassware sparkle. Bella

  4. Super-super beautiful series..gorgeous and peaceful.. sooo pretty! Wonderful..all the senses have been charged up with such simple beauty!

  5. This is such a lovely presentation of a breakfast table. I enjoyed the idea of sitting down and actually having the meal, not just showing the table, which I also love. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I'm in love with your blog! I find it to be one of the most charming places that I have visited in blogland. You have touched the whimsical spot in my heart and I will visit with you often. Your breakfast table is beautiful. My mouth watered over the jam and juice, so I'll just pretend that I'm joining you for that delicious breakfast. Thank you for visiting Beneath The Big Oak and for your beautiful comment. I'm following you now, so that I don't miss a thing that happens at The House In The Roses!

  12. yes, I'm sensing everything tastes delicious in your little cottage, girl.

  13. I could eat toast at every meal....and your table is so inviting....

  14. I can just taste the butter melting on the hot bread. Beautiful tablecloth. I especially enjoy breakfast on the porch with the sun just touching the tree tops. Great post.

  15. I love jam with fresh bread! This looks lovely, Joan

  16. Ah lovely! Cafe con leche!!!! Oh how I miss a wonderful cup of cafe con leche! It was one of my favourites when I lived in Spain - I grew up with that and wonderful Spanish food. I could write for hours about Spanish food.....Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos - very whimsical and delightful. MIchelle

  17. What gorgeous pictures allways have.
    I Enjoy!
    Lovely weekend to you!
    Greetings, Lennu

  18. Your table and breakfast looks wonderful.

    Through the week I eat breakfast alone since my Hubby has to be at work by 5am. Just some oatmeal with fruit and nuts for me.

    On the weekends it is another story. I fixed breakfast on Saturdays and he does Sundays.

    We go alittle all out on those two mornings.


  19. Sweet friend ~ Loved your write on the stroll in the park, how peaceful to enjoy.

    Breakfast is my favorite time to enjoy, the awakening of the earth, the skies ... the sweet melodic birds ... such peacefulness to surround myself in ... with a hot cup of tea, 2 english muffins slathered in butter & drizzled with marionberry jam.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  20. I could eat breakfast anytime of the day...I love it. I also love the strawberry jam, especially when I make it myself....YUM, so enjoyable. I love your sparkling tableware, so pretty.

  21. Oh Yum! Come on sunshine, I'm ready for breakfast after looking at your table!
