Some days there is luckily time for spending hours in a tiny tea room in a small english village and sipping to warm tea, conversing about life, playing a game of domino on tired paper cut outs kept in an old leather wallet and gazing at charming ducks swim in the cold village pond outside, and other days goes by in a blink working.
Afternoon tea is definitely a bit therapeutic, but lunches that roll over into afternoon tea is like going to a mental spa that smells of honey, flowers and handsome cologne;)
Cologne you say…?!
Well, ladies an proper afternoon tea is not complete without having an english gentleman pour fresh milk in your tea, non?
Guests came and went while we sat in our cozy corner by the warm wood stove enjoying the moment.
Besa me mucho played softly in the background while the wind blew the door open with masculine bursts of cool autumn air.
These are the moments dreams are made of.
These are the moments that paints art on your hearts with bold primary colors that stay on for as long as we live.
I treasure days like this, and don´t think I´d make it without them on occasion.
Now I hope you´ll bare with me, but I´m on a wee bit of a video kick at the moment.
I´m slowly learning about filming, editing and putting it all together in a short little film, and as I´m learning, here is yet another one from that marvelous day in the tea room.
I hope you´ll enjoy!
