I do like a nice tearoom and if you haven't yet been then you must!!

On Thursday we went to Stokesley for lunch at 
"Lotti's Voluptous Delights".

There was a sprinkling of Christmas outside the shop,

  little trees with twinkling lights were  set in vintage crates,

and the door wreath had teacups tied on it,

"Baby it's cold outside".

Inside we were taken to our table in the window that was filled with hand made cushions and the light  fittings all had lovely old lampshades on them.

We ordered  warm  brie and cranberry sandwiches and had a huge slice of salted caramel cake mmmm.....

Just a short bike ride from where we live there's another tea room opened,

"Glady's vintage tearoom"

which is all done out in 1940's style.

They open early for breakfast, we tried the "Tally Ho" which was lovely  and popped back another day for tea and cake which was served on lovely old china, just what we needed after a  bike ride.

Girls on the next table had the afternoon tea and  a 3 tier cake stand was filled with sandwiches, scones and cake which looked delicious....maybe next time!!

Have you got any nice tearooms to share?

 Stitching and sewing, painting and creating, Lynn from "Sea Angels" blog, makes the most wonderful fairytale things you can ever  imagine.

A couple of weeks ago I was reading her blog when I saw she had sewn onto an old hanky a beautiful scene which she was going to make into Christmas cards. No sooner had I left a comment saying how lovely the cards were than a parcel arrived through the letterbox.

The envelope in itself was a work of art and inside were 4 of the loveliest cards, all tied up with  gossamer ribbon.

Each of the cards had a different saying typed on the front, and just a hint of glitter.

and even the envelopes "sparkled" 

Not sure if I can bear to part with them, maybe I'll thread them onto ribbon and make a garland!

 Thank you Lynn I love them. x
