Afternoon Tea

A few weeks ago my Mom & I went to St. George to Abigail's Tea House for afternoon tea.   It's pretty much my dream tea house, ha!  All that is missing is some yarn for sale... We had a really good time, and might have to go back pretty soon!  My Mom & I ended up talking with Abigail & her Mom for quite a while afterwards, and they are hoping to have a craft show later on this year, so I'm hoping to be part of it.  Tea & crafts?  The perfect combination.

Now I'm able to mark off another item on "the List"!  I want to go to as many tea rooms/tea houses/etc. that I can possibly go to.  So far my Mom & I have gone to Annona in Toronto, Glenhyrst Gardens, and now Abigail's.  Hopefully this summer we can check off another one or two tea places.  Have you ever had afternoon tea?  Any places I should check out in Ontario?

Monday's Finds: Part 32!

How amazing is this backyard?  If this was in my backyard I would spend a tonnnnn of time out here.
Lately I have been looooooving bananas.  I've made "fried bananas" a few times.  Super simple!  All you need is coconut oil, bananas, a bit of cinnamon, some honey & a splash of water.
Love these colours.
I can't wait to go blueberry picking this summer.  Once I do, I think I'll have to make this.
How awesome is this lettuce farm (? I don't know what to call it, ha.)?
Ha!  So true...
You can never have too many spots to put your books.
And this week at Sevenly.org your purchase helps a family who just received a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome.

Monday's Finds: Part 31!

I wouldn't mind hanging out here.
Or here!
AHHH!  Adorable
Speaking of sheep... THIS is the perfect cuts of lamb image!
This honey tea cake is one recipe I've got to try!
And I think a glass of this pineapple strawberry & mint white wine sangria (that is a mouthful!) would go perfect with it!
THIS. IS. AWESOME.  For his 40th birthday, his wife contacted 40 friends/family to send their favorite book to him as a gift. Hey Keith, you've got 6 months if you wanna do this for me this year... haha!
I love this idea.  Rings with the names of cities/countries you've visited!
This would be perfect to store yarn in... haha!
I made these "fried" bananas with cinnamon & honey last week and really liked them!  Instead of olive oil I used coconut oil.
I need to remember this more!  For the longest time I didn't want to drink my "fancy" teas or use things like bath bombs because I felt like I was wasting them.  What is the point of having them if you never want to use them?  Same goes for using "fancy" dishes or cutlery!  I need to keep this in mind with my clothes, too.  Why have a closet filled with clothes if I don't want to wear them in case they get "dirty"?  Show 'em off!  No one can see them hung up in the closet!  Haha.
This week Sevenly.org is donating to the Sweet Nectar Society, which is an organization that finds photographers to capture the hope, courage, and strength of children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses, disabilities and injuries, and provide their families with lasting memories.
