My parents are in town visiting, and today we all had the day off to hang out a bit. We went to the BEST tea room in the area, Spring Creek Tea Room in Ozark, Missouri. The best part about it is the tea room is connected to a small flea market! ("Flea market" in the Missourian sense of the word, like an antique mall.) The tea room is always crowded because, well, it's fantastic food, so you get to meander around and shop while you wait.
The other fabulous part is the food. I got an apple pecan salad, blueberry iced tea, and PEACH SOUP. Yes, that's right, peach soup! They also have strawberry soup. They're cold, sweet soups with a dollop of whip cream on the top, and this tea room makes it perfectly. Sweet, but not too sweet, with a fabulous texture.
My husband was kind enough to pause in the flea market for a quick photo shoot, lovely man that he is. This dress is from the 40s, bought from a friend. I did a quick, careful shrink and it fits me perfectly now! I like the basic lines of it with the pop of color at the top. I paired it with a couple accessories my mom brought me from Kenya, a beaded belt, large purse, and pair of earrings. It's an easy outfit, and I love it!
Then, lastly… this table! My husband and I have been looking for a new kitchen table, and we spotted this beauty for a great price. Obviously, it came home with us! We took it apart, stuffed it in the car, and now it's looking great in our kitchen. I'll take some photos soon to share with you guys when I get a couple more furniture pieces in place. (Doesn't moving in take so long sometimes?!)
