Week 6 - From Above

Every year I take my oldest granddaughter for tea for her birthday. We started when she was just a small child.  
This year she is in her first year of college and so was not home for her birthday.  She is home for spring break, so we went Monday
We've tried many places.  This year we went to Paris in a Cup, a more sophisticated venue.  Most tea rooms are fashioned after the British version....lots of vintage looking furniture and antique teapots.  This shop is  decorated in all things Parisian
Three of these shots were "from above". 
I like seeing my reflection in the domed silver sugar container.  I used two layers of Kim's "Sybil" on the bottom right image.  I 
used "Aurora" and "Return" on the lower left image.   The others and the images that follow are SOOC.
A look around the interior.....

  


A look in the powder room.....


The two of us and a beautiful lamp in the main room....





And the view from the street.

See you soon.

looks like the perfect place to visit and 'play ladies' with decadent table settings and surrounds. A lovely tradition you've created with your grand-daughter Marilyn
