Vintage Paisley

Went on a visit to Paisley Museum earlier in the week and then found this amazing vintage tea room just across the road on the High Street - Ta Ta Bella's Tea Room.

Tea and coffee were served in lovely vintage china cups and the cakes were home made and delicious!

Lots of gorgeous vintage bits and pieces to look at and a warm and friendly welcome.

Make sure you go and visit if you are ever in Paisley.  You can find out more about on Ta Ta Bella's website.

Love, Liz

As Seen On ... Waterloo Road!

Do any of you watch the BBC drama Waterloo Road?  If you do - then look carefully next time there is a scene set in the staff room and you might see this -

Yes - it's one of my tea cosies!

Waterloo Road was filmed in Greenock, although they no longer film here.  But while they were here I sent along a tea cosy I had knit in Waterloo Road colours.  Imagine how delighted I was to see in on my telly!

Fame - at last!!!!!

Love, Liz
