The London Tea Room & English Living

1. London Tea Room, 2. London Tea Room, 3. London Tea Room, 4. I am a teapot

A weekend celebration of mom's birthday took us into the city. Our destination? The London Tea Room and English Living. If you're ever in this city, take an afternoon to explore these uk delights. You will not be disappointed.
The Blueberry Rooibus tea and cranberry orange scone with clotted cream and jam delighted our little taste buds.

The eclectic collection of dishes are really sweet. Nothing matches and anything goes.

Mrs. B. and sister.
This itty bitty Sanpellegrino bottle has been re-purposed into a bud vase and sits on my bookshelves. Much too cute to throw in the recycle bin.

As for the shopping portion of our trip; we made our way through the airy shop that adjoins The London Tea Room and found ourselves some goodies. We only bough the small ones and tucked the big ones away in our memories to chase after some other time.
Sister loved this green/cream damask chair. Said she must have it.
My favorites were the turquoise-y painted dresser and this robin's egg blue couch with great big medallions on the fabric.

A look at my shelves all decked out in their bookish glory is coming up soon!

Delightful! I also love the turquoise dresser - in fact, I know JUST where it could go in my house! :)

Thanks for sharing the goodies...

thanks to my girls for a wonderful lunch...except for your stinky cheese salad! Now we must go again and order it right.
Lets find that 50,000 in the "abandoned car" and go to buy all new furniture here for ourselves!
