The Tea Room


Hello Dear Ones,

Today I visited a lovely tea room called "Indulgences" which has been rated with a lot of "best food" restaurant report cards, recommendations and awards.

The server told us that people are welcome to sit at the tables and just visit if they want to and that they encourage people to do that. One of the staff pointed to some people at another table who had been sitting there for three hours!  I so appreciated that they liked people enough to welcome them staying on longer than their tea or their meal.  It makes the place look busy and friendly.

   My camera was not doing very well so my pictures are disappointing, but I will share the few pictures that are almost clear. The tea room is also a place where vendors create little shops all around the room and sell their interesting wares, from antiques to hand made to new.

Vintage Laura Ashley decorator pillows: those English rose prints are still exciting to see.





This display looks like a classic old painting from the 1800's, doesn't it?


An interesting sentiment! Yes, it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness! Create sunshine around you as much as you can with whatever you have. I was glad to be reminded of this today!





These candles had very unique names and scents. This one is called "Tree Lot" --the fragrance of a tree lot!  It actually smelled quite nice but the price was really high so I didn't get one. But I shall be going back to smell it and some of the other flavors too!

I just thought I would share this with you and let you know sometimes you can find places to visit when you need to go out, that do not depress you, have annoying music, or assault your senses with things that are abrasive or disagreeable, and if you have a place like this in your area, be sure and visit it.

And ladies, be sure to check the previous post. I have added another article on the "Elect Lady Series" that I have been trying to create. I want to do more of these subjects, Lord Willing, and try to create tracts and fold-over bulletins from them if I can, so that they can be printed from this blog.

It sounds like a lovely place and I am glad you were able to go and enjoy it. Maybe you have a new painting inspiration from these sweet photos?

Rhonda, that chair would be a good painting but I am not confident in still life...need some practice. Am working on a couple of other paintings to show soon and then will attempt something like this.

Good Morning! What a sweet post! I would love to visit that very place. I liked the sign that said some days you have to make your own sunshine. I know you must of really enjoyed your special day! I always look forward to your posts so much, you inspired me once again!
Always, Roxy

What a delightful looking place to visit :) It is lovely to visit a cafe/tea shop and not be rushed by the staff because they need your table. My son works in a very popular cafe and one can not stay too long at the table as they are in such high demand. Whilst popular among younger people, it isn't my sort of place.

What a beautiful tea room. I wish I could have been there to sit across from you and enjoy a time of fellowship. Love Kelly Thompson

Ladies, sometimes I have to paste in your comments due to technical problems (or rather my own cognitive problems!) so please be patient if the link to your blog is not live.
