A Splendid Day

Last weekend, we went to an outdoor mall called Santana Row.  It had a very cool atmosphere with restaurants and shops throughout the mall and on every corner.  We had lunch at a tea time place, which was so lovely.  I felt like I was in England, ordering my cucumber sandwiches and English Breakfast tea.  Here's a few pictures of our fun weekend.  












Have a nice
October day.

It looks like a wonderful day. I like that pretty teacup, the napkin ring, and my favorite photo of all is the second one. The lovely colors of the wall with the delicate iron work stands out to me. I could spend a bit of time there with my wide angle and macro lens capturing all that beautiful detail.

Such lovely pictures, of a lovely afternoon tea with a beautifully presented serviette. How I'd love to drink tea from that rose design tea cup, so English. I must get my lovely teacup out from the china cupboard. ( not really, but that's what my grandmother would have said )Lovely post.

Dear and lovely friend,

Isn't it a lovely atmosphere, a place were you can relax, have tea, be with kind and loving friends and family? You still have a summer, but we are moving toward darker, shorter and very enchanting days. It's tea time for me tonight because I've got a sore throat and sniffles. But that's OK. Rest, tea and taking it easy is part of my October! SPLENDID!

Hello, Dear Sheri! Happy Birthday to your darling daughter! I love all the sweet photos. The pearl heart necklace is wonderful. The tea cup and saucer is just like the Royal Albert tea set I inherited from my Mother. It looks like you had a very lovely day together. Hugs xo Karen

Happy Birthday to Jessie. Sounds like you girls had a great time at Santarom. I love that place - great stores and restaurants. When I go visit my son who lives in Los Gatos we always go there. It is a very lovely area.
Your photo's were wonderful.

If this isn't a homage to femininity I don't know what is...
So glad you had a great day, fun, serene and Happy - like a Breakfast at Tiffany's wherever you are.
Beautiful Souls don't know other kind of gatherings it seems... and "your" world looks still so Spring and Young; because you are.
Have Fun and Thank you for sharing your Happiness with us.
Love,
Teresa

Just my kind of place! There's an Anthropologie there too! I love to have a wander round there (and treat myself!) whenver I go down to London. As for the tea place, it looks wonderful. The tea cup, cutlery and napking ring are all just perfect. What a beautiful pearl heart pendant! This was a lovely way to celebrate a special birthday.

Happy birthday to Jess. What a fun day you had Sheri, and the !ady Carlyle tea cup is so pretty. I will be going to NY, San Francisco, Las Vegas and LA. I am now counting the days to my holidays. Thank you dear for your lovely visit.
Hope you have a good weekend.

What a lovely day out Sheri.
The shopping centre looks as though it had lots of interesting things to see and do.
I have the same set as your tea cup.. 12 piece set.
I enjoy going to see the big shops.. we can get some nice ideas and its a change too.
happy weekend

Ooh, Jess is an October baby too. Yay! Happy birthday, Jess. I'm celebrating my 51st this weekend.
Sheri, this looks like a beautiful place for tea, and speaking of tea, a very raspberry October tea tag is headed for the West Coast. :) October persuaded me to give away more. teehee
Would you prefer tea dye or spun sugar (pink)?

Lovely way to celebrate birthday with family! The photo of Bougainvillea is so striking. I remember my aunt used to have one in her garden many years ago, and it was a glorious sight.

Wish you a beautiful weekend Sheri! Bxx
