Recipes ~ Blueberry Tart & Mini Fruit Tarts

I have been feeling blue these days.. And must admit that I am very happy about it. Blueberries are plenty once again and my craving for the mildly tart and tangy fruit is a bit uncontrollable. Most of the time I try to avoid making any complicated recipes in the summertime.  I do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen so my go to product for a quick dessert is the Pillsbury 's refrigerated pie crust.  I always keep a box or two in my refrigerator.

I seldom play favorites when it comes to rooms in our home but I do have to admit that this guest rooms is one of my favorite rooms in the house.  I find it very peaceful and cozy because of the soft and soothing colors in the room.  Mostly creamy tones with relaxed fabrics that are pure comfort.   So every now and then, you will find me enjoying a few private moments in this space.  Almost feeling like a guest in my own home.  Is that a silly thing?  So I added a few pretty hydrangeas from my garden and enjoyed the scenery.  Read a little, had a treat and even took a little nap. It is no secret that I have a little obsession with pretty china.  Just looking at these beauties makes me smile.  It is all about simple pleasures and a bit of pampering.  Most of the time, it is family
