Gothic Arch Challenge - Shabby Chic

I adore Sunday afternoons especially ones that are free of commitments. I light a scented candle, brew a pot of tea, pop a CD into the player and lose myself in creativity for the afternoon until dinner and ironing beckon. Sure hope you are blessed with a similar afternoon. This is my entry for this week's Gothic Arch Challenge.
