Greetings from Boston and a giveaway
On Thursday, my friend Lori Lee came down from New Hampshire to spend the day. We decided to go into Boston and have tea at the Boston Public Library. While waiting for tea at 2:00, we thought we would look around the library. We found a wonderful vintage postcard exhibit entitled Greetings from Boston. They had postcards from all eras and we learned quite a bit about the subject.
Wow, things have really changed.
We were glad we had to wait to have tea, otherwise, we would have missed the postcard exhibit.
So we went to the restaurant and we were turned away because they were holding a private function.
Of course, before we left the library I had to check out the courtyard. Naturally, it started to rain and my photo shoot was cut short.
I was happy to see that the witches hats were back. I saw them last year at the BPL and I was hoping to see them again.
Each one was different and all of them were ornate.
I love how they were suspended and they appeared to be floating.
This one was my favorite. I love the lace trim.
One had feathers on it.
We still wanted tea so we walked to the Four Seasons Hotel. And they weren't serving tea for 45 minutes. We waited.
The service was fabulous and the food quality was excellent but in my opinion the portions were quite small for the price.
Maybe I am just spoiled by my tea group. We have some great cooks in the group and there is always plenty of food.
We did have a great day and I am glad we went to Boston.
Now, about the giveaway. I haven't had a giveaway in a while and I hit 100 followers recently so it seems like a good time to share the wealth. So here's what the winner will receive. Two Bird toile mugs with lids and saucers and a sample of one of my favorite teas for this time of year, Harney and Sons Cranberry Autumn Blend.
I think this is the cutest mug and it comes in a set so yes the winner will receive two mugs. Tea drinkers or coffee drinkers are welcome to enter the giveaway.
