Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon with Melody (The House On The Side Of The Hill). We went to Jam and Cream which Mel had seen on television. There are lots of vintage things everywhere. Don't you just love the underwear hanging in the window!
Of course, as many of you already know, Mel and I are quite partial to the odd scone with jam and cream! Just for something a little different, we ordered one serving of cheese and chutney scones (named Gilbert on the menu) and one of plain (Jane) scones with jam and cream. We then had one of each. They were delicious!
There were none of those chunky tea cups you usually get in cafes. We had gorgeous proper vintage china teacups and plates. Some of you may even be shocked to learn that I ordered a pot of tea (it's usually only illness or pregnancy that gets me drinking tea and I'm neither! I just love my coffee!). I thoroughly enjoyed it and may start drinking more tea! Look at that cute little bottle with milk came in!
I just love this picture frame filled with vintage sewing items.
Out the back there is the cutest pink caravan. Next time we'll have to book so we can have a tea party in there! Thanks for a lovely afternoon Mel. I'm so glad you found this place (and so close to home too).
So while I watched Pretty Woman (again!) on tv, I worked on some secret sewing (in the box underneath) and started stitching a new stitchery.
I was lucky enough to win a prize from Kaye of Kitten Stitching in her recent Mystery Giveaway A lovely embroidered hand towel, a needle case, scissors with a matching fob and a cute little book.
The scissor fob is made of yo yos with two different vintage buttons. The scissors are so cute. You can't see them in the picture but there are polka dots on them.
Thank you so much, Kaye.
