High Society

Yesterday afternoon, a dear older woman who I have known ever since I was a little girl, who everbody in my family lovingly referrs to her as "Grandma Brown", picked me up from Grandma's house to spend the afternoon and evening with her.

For lunch she took me out to this delightful little cafe that serves lunch, desserts, and of course, tea.
Everything about the place was darling. Yes, even the menu. ::winks:: Goodness, I wonder how she knew that I love all things British/English?!
We had pumpkin soup and an apple slaw salad. I also chose to have tea with my meal. One has to have tea in a tea shop, right?! I was so tempted to order some crumpets too, but since I wasn't the one paying for my meal, I wanted to be careful with what I ordered.

The booths appeared to be old church pews or something. I had to take a picture. =)

Me outside of the tea shop. The buildings in the area were built in the mid-1800's.

Ah yes, and in other news, today I did a little fabric shopping. =) I got some really cute prints for aprons. And the details of these fabrics are going to be a secret for just a couple more weeks, and then you all can see them made into their finished products. I think you'll love them as much as I love the fabric!

Cheri, I would have loved to have tea at such a charming teahouse. You're so lucky to have found such a charming place.

I'm also glad to hear about your plans for aprons. I can hardly wait to see them! I see you're wearing a jacket, must be cold there already. Here, it's HOT!!

It appears you had fun, Cheri! What a cute little shop! I've never gone to a tea shop like that, but hope to sometime.

Btw, if you ever make an apron out of that black and white teacup fabric again, let me know. :D

Dear Cheri,
What a nice little shop!!!
I hope you had a nice time.
Also I have tagged you to write six random things about yourself. You will find the rules on my blog. Thanks.

I love hearing from readers, although it seems like being away from home has been effecting my replying to them. =P

Elisabeth, I think I have one more apron cut out of that fabric in the 1930's pattern, but I have been planning on using that as a bridal gift. I'll keep my eyes peeled for more of that out-of-print fabric.
