Basically British...

...basically delicious, basically wonderful! 2 of my best friends took me out for tea at a local shop. It was an early birthday treat and oh was it sweet! Mom came along and we had such a good time. I don't post pictures of my friends much, most don't want me too, but suffice to say they are both beautiful! And dear and so special to me.
The day was gray, chilly and drizzly but that just made this occasion all the more perfect!

Basically British, on Third Street in downtown Dayton, is a tremendous place.

I now have lovely memories to last a lifetime!

And in the same vein...a blast from the recent past! Click on this: Grace's ProperTea
and also Grace Does Tea and share these sweet memories with us!

Love and Hugs,

I remember as a kid my granny taking me downtown and having lunch at Servis and Buehl, across the street from our church on First; it had the air of a high tea place. Glad to hear they have something that classy downtown on Third!
