tea for two...




A few weekends ago my Mother and I headed to a tea house for lunch in a nearby town. It was a little cramped in the tiny, "white house", but the tiers of treats, scones, and tiny sandwiches happily reminded me of my last few trips to Scotland. Although nothing compares to tea and scones with Granny, it's still fun to enjoy the afternoon ritual every once and a while. I have this secret wish to one day open up my own tea house, complete with sparkling chandeliers and the prettiest floral teacups... how fun would that be?

Photos: My own, from film. A little yellow from the indoor lighting though.

  6. Nothing better than tea and cakes on a winters afternoon. Your blog is so wonderful, it always transports me away from wherever I am reading. x

  8. Daniella, You have a Scottish heritage? I just learned I do as you may know if you read a recent post of mine. Just curious to know where your family is from if you don't mind me asking? ~LeAnn http://linenandlavender.blogspot.com/2012/01/scottish-rose.html

    1. I do! My Mother is Scottish and my Father is Italian. I have quite a few uncles, aunts, and cousins in Scotland, my Granny too. They are all mostly in the Glasgow area, where my Mom grew up. I LOVE it there, I've been about 8 or 9 times now, most recently with my best friend. Each time I get off the plane, it just feels like home, it's so weird! If you haven't been yet, you'll certainly enjoy it. I love the city, the more historical towns, and diving up in the Isles is wonderful! The Charles Rennie Mackintosh tea room in Glasgow is my favourite.
