Last week I shared my trip to Indy
to visit some of my very favorite friends
and long-time Tea Society sisters.
You can find the post of our wonderful
luncheon hosted by Dawn here if you missed it.
After that awesome experience, and after
spending the night with Marina,
the very next morning I was treated
to the most amazing breakfast by she!
Sure wish we hadn't stayed up till 2 am
the night before visiting that I
completely forgot to snap pics in my sleepy daze!
Her breakfast was truly blog worthy.
(Sorry about that, Marina!)
Time to leave for our lovely Afternoon Tea outing!
Isn't Marina's antique family heirloom dresser with marble in her foyer gorgeous?
We all met at The Ruby Pear -
a beautiful old "Painted Lady" Victorian home
and long-time tea house.
After many wonderful years of being the greatest tea house
it is closing its doors for business this Saturday.
I should also share that it is NOT due to the economy or poor business
why they are closing-
it is due to some serious health concerns with the Proprietors.
Oh, dear sweet Ruby Pear, you shall be missed by many!
(I daresay Dawn and Marina most acutely shall be hurting!)
They serve & sell all our favorite Harney & Sons teas there.
One never knows what pretty china one will get
at a visit to The Ruby Pear!
But one knows that every single bite/sip/nibble
will always be REALLY TASTY!
Sorry all my pics are so grainy; low lighting, back lit
and trying to enjoy a tea
plus my settings got messed up earlier and I hadn't taken the time to notice to fix
all added to not--close-to-stellar pics. At least the day was documented to share, though!
Indy Chapter of STS Tea Society (not red hat ladies)

As always, thank you for your visit!
