The other day, a friend and I were on a trip to get some business done,
when I realized we weren't far from a favorite café where we had eaten a time or two before...
it wasn't hard to talk her into a detour.
I had some organic Jasmine tea--
out of this wonderful little tea pot...
unfortunately my smartphone's camera wasn't too 'smart' (accurate) with the true color.
It was a beautiful light, soft green--reminiscent of some vintage items I've seen.
The tea was AWESOME by the way...
made even more so by the 'lovely' pre July 4th weather we were having outside:(
besides the not so lovely rain and gray skies,
we were treated to a variety of lovely colorful flowers in a variety of unique containers.
It helped make the day seem brighter!
Do you see what I see?
Yep, that REALLY is a toaster being used as a planter!
I've never seen that before:)
They also used old sifters and some other kitchen related items...
cute ideas for a café that used to be a general store
(or possibly a farmhouse or rustic cabin)!
I should have taken a photo of what we were eating,
but I was SO hungry that the delicious roast beef sandwich was gone in minutes...
maybe even seconds:)
And then -- not too long afterwards,
so was the yummy lemon cookie...
I LOVE lemony desserts!
I LOVE eating good food in a historical, country setting too:)
Here is their website in case business or pleasure brings you out their way as it did us
An earlier trip under sunnier skies
brought my hubby and I to the coast.
And wouldn't you know it,
not too long into our trip,
as we were passing some farm fields and hillsides where the lighting was beautiful,
I clicked the camera shutter...
only to discover,
my camera battery was dead--
I did catch a few beach photos with my phone,
but I definitely need to take the time and play with the settings.
Still it was better than nothing:)
but not least,
On an even earlier visit...
my sibling's cute Cornish Rex kitty taking-
a cat nap:)
Ah! The sun has made an appearance...
time to go!
Happy Summer Solstice to you!
