Last Saturday, my au pairs, their host moms and my own mother and i went to a local tea room just to spend some time together and to enjoy a bit of elegance. The place where we dined had all of the potential to be a very elegant place, however, because of either lack of care, or good taste, it was more shabby chic than elegant.
my sweet Mother gave me such
a high compliment this morning ...she said she had been thinking about
that tea room and thought that if i owned it, it would be a place of
elegance, high class but yet not too 'stuffy'...(WOW..thank you Mom)
She also said, with a smile in her voice, "...and you would not have served High Tea whilst wearing pants! Humph!"
