This and That

Wow, I can't believe the last time I posted was November 2nd. I do believe I have been making up for lost time by being incredibly busy outside of the house. I couldn't drive for 5 weeks and then just gradually entered the busy world full force a few weeks ago. I haven't done any sewing since I finished the birthday quilt.

Yesterday was a chance to slow down and have tea with some friends, as you can see from the sign on the table. We went to Tilly Mint's in Souderton, PA, truly one of the loveliest little tearooms I've ever visited. Trish, the owner is so charming and the food and atmosphere are wonderful. 

Don't you love the folded napkin? I do believe having tea is one of the most civilized ways to dine. I look for tearooms whenever I travel and also in the local area.

This was the food served for the three of us. It is always presented in such a pretty manner. The sandwiches were delicious. One time, someone told me they didn't think you get enough food when you have tea. Personally, I think this is plenty. Trish always serves raisin scones because they are traditional. And very good, I might add.

I just had to share the ladybug. Every time I've been there the ladybug is one of the sandwiches.

And of course, the yummy little desserts. Sugar cookies are always a seasonal shape. Just too cute.

I'll be back soon with more news. And hopefully some sewing too. 


  1. Sounds like a wonderful tea room. Wish we had something like it nearby!

  2. What a sweet treat that was! My favorite local tearoom is Emma's, and it has a similar atmosphere -- fun, frilly and wonderful! Glad you're back up and at it! :)

  3. Nancy-
    I'm so glad you are back blogging!! I also love an afternoon tea; I'll have to check this place out the next time I'm down. Sounds like you're fully recovered- awesome!!

  4. What a fun place to eat. And I love that lady bug sandwich. So cute.
