We had tea twice while they were in town. Actually, the weather was kind of perfect for tea....it was rainy while they were here (go figure). We had our first tea at an adorable and very British tea house called Lady Di's British Store and Tea Room in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Had to get some pictures taken out front before we went in. :)
Here's me and sis!
Auntie 'Shelle and Paris...
Inside we were greeted with tons of British goods including these adorable teapot cozies!
Various corners of the tea room were filled with vintage goodies...A delicate teacup waiting to be filled with some comforting tea...
While we waited I spied some sweet little books all about the art of tea...
A separate cozy room for a small tea party.
Afterwards we found one of those fun pottery places where you can paint your own pottery. What a better way to spend an afternoon....family, creativity and just plain fun. :) This is Janet's creation. A little dish with a painting of their little Max on it. Janet painted this for hubby. I thought that was so sweet.
Here's mine. A ceramic cupcake container. I think I will spruce up my desk at work and use this as a paperclip holder. :)
Paris painted her pony she has back at home. His name is Bebop. She was so intense when she was painting Bebop but it came out absolutely gorgeous in the end. She even painted a little "b" on his behind. :)
I have been feeling better day after day and I am now sure that this visit started the cure! I also just found out today that mom will be coming next weekend! I have a few antique excursions planned already! Always remember, when you're down family is always there for you. :) I love you guys! Thanks for cheering me up.
One last thing. I received a couple of awards while I was gone (I am in total shock!) but I will be posting those as soon as I finish this post!
More to come!
