July News Letter-Charming Tea Rooms To Visit.


Charming Little Tea Rooms
At the turn-of-the-century, beginning with the popularity of the automobile, roadside charming little tea rooms popped up around the countryside serving tea and snacks to those that drove by. These tea rooms remain popular today.
Many creative people have turned their homes and cottages into very cozy Tea Rooms to entertain and comfort the weary traveler.
I have found some lovely places that you might like to visit in your travels. Enjoy!

 Afternoon tea can and does include everything I love:
Food, especially baked goods; the comfort of sipping tea; relaxation; nurturing friendships; beautiful setting (flowers, pretty plates, etc); and the feeling of being pampered.

Tea Is A Treasure!


 In my little Tea Corner, I try to make it as comfortable as possible.
 It is my own little world.
I can get away from the hustle and bustle from the street below.
 Even though I live in an apartment, I want it to have a feel of a home.

 

I can close my eyes and sip my favorite cup of tea and feel I am in a small cottage in the countryside.
Enjoying my tea time, has become my daily routine. 
It heals the mind and soul. I can't imagine how I could live without this treasure. 
GLORIOUS TEA TIME!
