Favourite things Friday and Tea for Six.

My Favourite thing this Friday is a sweet little Tea Shop called "The Willows Tea Room" situated at Mt Gravatt Central a few suburbs away from my home.
I went there for morning tea with some of my lovely friends for morning tea.
The Tea Room has a lovely 'olde world' charm about it with lovely linen gracing every table. We each had a delicious Devonshire Tea with lashings of jam and cream and the choice of one of the extensive range of teas available. All served in and on the most exquisite vintage china and REAL napkins. I was in heaven!
Our lovely waitress Lee turned out to be a fellow yogini I had had the pleasure of meeting at a friends once before. We're everywhere!!!
"The Willows" friendly and welcoming Proprietor "Rosalyn" hopes that "people will come with family and friends and enjoy the atmosphere and relax over a pot of tea and a delicious scone or cake"
The girls and I certainly did that and some. Lots of chatting and laughter and next time  a few of us are going back to have a tarot card reading as well as the morning tea. Rosalyn even has a lovely gift area to have a little browse in. I loved a lovely old dresser which held a collection of china jugs and teapots (sorry forgot to get a pic) and a great sign that I had to get a photo with. I am getting a little worried about myself because I am certainly embracing "it's all about me" lately! Anyway!
Thanks Rosalyn for a great morning in your lovely Tea Room we will certainly be back we throughly enjoyed ourselves....the company I kept certainly helped a lot too.
Thanks and Namaste to Lee for looking after us so well.
Warmness and loveliness await inside.
Isn't this tablecloth just gorgeous and you know how I love a beaded cover and cute little sugar tongs too!
Our lovely Hostess and Proprietor Rosalyn preparing another lovely cup of tea!
Now you can understand my temptation. This was my teacup.
Jacky and Gaye enjoying morning tea (look at the china) YUM!
I loved this sign
My friends were worried I would have to be frisked on the way out for contraband vintage teacups upon my person but I was very good and no such embarrassment ocurred.
