Tearooms and giveaways

Today i visited a lovely new tearoom with my Mum. Dandelion is in the beautiful town of Stock Essex. The town itself doesn't have shops to visit but has some great countryside walks and lots of pubs. And nearby Ingatestone is lovely with a horse sanctuary and a house to visit. This new tearoom opened in February. The owners are ever so nice. The decor is really lovely and the food is good. The most gorgeous thing has to be the symbol that is used:

This lovely little girl is modelled on the owners autistic daughter. My Mum bought me the lovely mug :)

When i arrived back home i had my lovely giveaway prize from Tabiboo waiting for me. I found out i won on my birthday which was extra nice!

Thank you!!! I love everything. Some chocolate has already been eaten and i really really love the wooden ruler. Tabiboos gorgeous postcard prints can be bought here. The peony one is my favourite - just gorgeous!!

Have a lovely weekend all


Lovely things:

1) Mollie Makes through the door.
2) Fajitas for dinner.
3) Batiste dry shampoo - my life saver when i can't be bothered to wash my hair!

Is that little girl on the china just so pretty. Little touches make the difference.
Well done on the win, my dad had a ruler like that, some very happy memories recalled after seeing that.
