Tea for Two

What makes Afternoon tea so special?? Well one thing is good food. Pretty tea cups. And the tea, of course. The ambiance of the tea room. But mostly it is having tea with a special lady. Today I enjoyed tea with a sweet "new" friend. We met for tea and talked, and talked. It was good "girlfriend" time. We enjoyed getting to know each other a little better.

So here are a few pictures from our most enjoyable Afternoon tea.

A collection of fun hats. And no we didn't wear any :-)

Such a delightful view.

Silver service on the mantle.

More beautiful silver service.

A charming sofa area where tea and lunch can also be served.

And the bathroom............

So much fun and beauty, even in the Ladies powder room.









These murals are painted on the wall of the Ladies powder room.
(I think if you click on the picture it should enlarge)




















I hope that your day has been as delightful as mine.

Happy quilting :-)

What a NICE tea room. We have a few nice ones within a reasonable distance of here. Until a year ago, I had never GONE to a tea room. Now I've gone twice and have plans to go again with the gals from our little neighborhood quilting group!
