Time out forTea!

One of my favorite things to do is take my granddaughter, Morgan, to tea at one of our
local tearooms.
This was a few weeks ago when she was on Fall break from school.  We spent the afternoon together,
first Tea at The August Moon and then shopping.  The tearoom has a thrift shop in another
area inside it.
I love the teacup!

We had Caramel Chocolate Truffle Tea!
Oh my, the Almond Chicken Melt was so heavenly!   I always have the broccoli salad and fruit cup
to go with my meal.
Love how Ms. Maggie cut out the bread in the shape of a pumpkin.  She usually cuts a slice of bread out with a teapot cookie cutter then spreads melted butter and sprinkles a little sugar on it,
then bakes it at 350 degrees until it is looks like this.
Don't you just love the teapot salt and pepper shakers!  Did you notice that the napkin ring
is a tiny painted flower pot!

The Tea Room is decorated so pretty with hats and teapots everywhere!
So many vintage items makes it feel like "a different time and place".

Of course on that day it was full of Red Hat Ladies.
We really enjoy our time together and now we're waiting on the opportunity to go again.


  1. Such a great afternoon tea party Sylvia.
