Warm and Happy

 

As we enjoyed our tea / coffee and cake,

we overheard the woman who worked

there telling someone of how the flood

waters had just come in one door of the

cafe and out the other.  She said they

didn't suffer as much damage as the

business' on the other side of the beck.

So simple and so wonderful and very carefully arranged,....with love.... look at that little bottle with the flower...very well thought of.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: This little cafe was set up as if it were their own home - with love, and pride!

Jolie composition. Merci pour le thé.

Quite a beautiful composition Elizabeth!

What a delightful scene, so simple yet so poignant when reading your words. A china teapot is so much nicer than those cheerless stain steel things. I think I can forgive the cafe for charging £2.20 now for a toasted tea cake.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is a charming little cafe - please give them a visit next time you're in the area!
Yes - I see what you mean about the china teapot... I'm sure you'd find the 2.20 worth the visit! smile
I knew Alan would like this, of course, as do the rest of us. But the story of those flood waters somehow makes this even cozier than ever!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Of course!
It's so charming - and I'm so pleased for them that they had very little down time

Dramatic stuff in genteel surroundings
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So very true, Chris.
I suppose they were, relatively, lucky Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, Chad - I agree.

a nice stillife - and I like reading your words. I know how the inhabitants had to suffer from the flood, and even lots of sheep died.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Philine!
I do feel so sorry for all those that have had these difficulties.

Good to hear the cafe recovered reasonably quickly, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I was happy for them - and I hope the folks across the river will soon be up and running, as well.
Nice cozy feel here, Elizabeth. How convenient, their setup is for a flood. All buildings should be built that way.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a very cozy place!
You are right!! The damage can be so much worse if the water has no where to go

Excellent still life.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Louis!
I like the flower in the bottle...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a really homey touch!
Even this little cameo of part of the table etc.tells me this is mine and Maureen's sort of place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You would like it, Brian - very quaint!

A lovely still life image Elizabeth. Let's hope the better weather we have had over the last few days is bringing out customers to those businesses recovering from the flooding.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Anne!
Yes - I hope everyone will be back to "normal" business soon.
Cosy indeed!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very!
Just lovely, Elizabeth, what a great job you made of this. You should send it to them...smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! Maybe I will! smile
You have sold this cafe to me Elizabeth smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good, Bill! Now get on up there!
wonderful still life Elizabeth... it could use one more cup and saucer to make it more romantic smile....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Peter! Yes - you're right!! smile
