Vintage Goodies | Getting ready for the future

Hello

Long time, no see. I’ve been absolutely crazy busy with preparations for the Decoporium…so I wanted to let you in with what I’ve been up to.

Stand by for a bunch of photos 😀 So first my is new welsh dresser, that I am up-doing. It has now been painted, waxed (possibly over waxed too) and the drawers have been lined! It’s so cute. I love it. (Proper picture coming soon).

Next I’ve been buying in a whole load of vintage goodness! Sometime I wonder if I really will be able to part with it….

Jeanette’s Cakery | A Saltaire Surprise

On my recent trip across the county to Saltaire, we decided to try out a tearoom. After a quick briefing with a lovely local woman, we popped along to ‘Jeanette’s Cakery‘. She described it as a place worth bloggin’ about and boy was she right!

What a find! This little beauty is on Saltaire’s main street, and just nestles right in. I really don’t think we could have found it ourselves without our tip. The interior was perfect. The tearoom is themed on the USA, so we’re talking juke boxes, 1950’s dresses, cupcakes and of course teacups. I think I was in heaven.

At the Cakery you could get an afternoon tea for £8.95, which seemed like an absolute bargain and we just had to try it. The afternoon came with sandwich, scone and a cupcake of choice! Yum!

We both went for Earl Grey tea (you’re probably not surprised) and the best part…it was loose leaf 😀 Our first teapot had a little leak in it, but thankfully the teapot had come on a tray. So they just whisked it away and a new one soon replaced it. Perfection. I got to tell you the service in this place was perfect. They were friendly, helpful and the tearoom seemed to flow really well.

The sandwiches were lovely, the scone was a little large but very tasty. The cupcakes were soo delicious (disclaimer: we had to eat them later as was too full).

Overall this tearoom was perfect; perfectly priced and such a great experience! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is in the area.

10 out of 10!

N.B: Wow don’t think I’ve ever given that score before!

Vintage Homewares of the Week | Top 5 Vintage Plates

This week’s picks are all ‘Vintage Plates’. So perfect by themselves that they don’t always need a teaset to stand out. Here are some of my favourites:

Such a delicate and lovely plate. I love the slightly crinkled edge with gilding. Perfect decoration item or for that delicious piece of cake!

Bananas are my favourite fruit, so this banana leaf plate really appealed to me. An old style but I feel would be at home in a modern kitchen.
