Special treat







I love these beautiful spaces, all the white and touches of pink and brown! Found via Dwellings and Decor's lovely blog.

So, last night I was given such a treat, tea with a dear friend at the Dobra Tea house down town Madison. It's new! There was a wall of exotic teas, tiny little tea pots and tea cups, biscuits and tasty treats. We sat on woven rugs in our own little cloister spot complete with round cushions and a low table. For a tea lover this was a little piece of heaven. I had a pot of Memories of Prague (similar to Chai) which was accompanied with a tiny pitcher of milk, a small pot of honey and two little ginger cookies. It was delicious! If you're ever in Madison, I'll take you, I promise!

The tea house sounds fantastic, what a treat! Ever since my trip to England I've been hooked on tea with cream, why isn't that standard in the states?

Love that picture with the svelte kitty running through, so sweet!

There is nothing like an afternoon tea! I usually find myself at barnes and noble to meet a friend for lack of better options, but this place sounds amazing.

tanya said...

what a calming space--white definitely is key to creating my dream office. I love all these images!

Brittany Noel said...

That tea house sounds like a slice of paradise. I wish there was something like that by me. There's a tea shop, but there's nowhere to enjoy a nice cup o' tea. And if I come to Wisconsin, you'll be hearing from me :)

I love these work spaces. They are just what I need.

DEANNA said...

Incredible space! Reminds me of the pages of The Company Co. magazine with the light atmosphere and colorful cute things.
Great blog, xox
