Teacup Thursday: Teatime at the High Tea Cottage in California

Well, I am back home in Iowa today after my week long vacation in California! I had a lovely time visiting my "California Family"!  We visited a few different tearooms while I was there! Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some fun pictures of our tearoom experiences! Here's the first tearoom we visited: "The High Tea Cottage Tearoom".

The pictures below were taken by the talented Grayson Kemp! I hope you enjoy them! I think he did a fantastic job capturing the moments!!  Check out his blog here: ClimbBlackBranches.com  He shares a lot of neat pictures of his many adventures!

The tearoom is owned by a nice British Couple, Jen and Ken. Here's Ken taking our Tea Orders! There were so many teas to try!! 

A sweet picture of Lori... (Kiley and Grayson's mom). She's the one that introduced my mom to the love to tea many years ago! 
The Tea Tray! 

Me, Grayson and Kiley! We've been friends for as long as I can remember! Kiley and I have been friends since we were 4 years old! And Grayson and I went to kindergarten together! 

Happy Teacup Thursday!! ~ Miss Spenser
