* TEA CUPS, TEA POTS, & CHICKENS...OH MY *

 "Bookie" commented on my Nostalgic Sunday post of March 20th, that she...and probably others...would like to see photos of the tea room area where I work. So, here are a few I took before I left work yesterday. I have many others that I've taken at various times, but they are mostly of the Home Décor part of the store and I will share them sometime soon.  
 
Tea cups, mini teapots, and sideboard

Part of the tea room
(Please excuse the glare. It was sunny!)

Private room in the tea room

Part of hallway between Home Décor and Tea Room (See the steps and hand railing on the right? That leads to more gorgeous items to purchase, the custom design room, the owner's office and my office!) P.S. I just LOVE those ceramic chickens! I bought two smaller ones (not shown) for myself and one of these larger ones for a friend's birthday.

* After reading Lisa's comment about the ceramic chickens, I realized they really aren't ceramic....they are more like concrete! But not too heavy! Just wanted to verify that. AND, the Imogene's website is getting ready to be updated asap, although every single item won't be able to be listed. Just ask me what kinds of things you like, and I'll let you know what we have!

As I've stated before, I love my job! I'm surrounded by beautiful things, friendly and caring people, and yummy food! What more could a gal ask for? If you live anywhere near Wildwood, Missouri or will be vacationing in the St. Louis area, do stop in at Imogene's! If you're going to have lunch, make reservations, even if it's only for two!
 
 
♪ Tea for two, and two for tea...

  2. Definitely my kind of place! Looks quiet and lovely...guess it isn't on St. Charles street like I thought. Never heard of Wildwood. Will look it up!

    1. Hi Claudia! No, it's not in Old St. Charles. It'd be great if you could make the trip this way again this spring or summer!

    1. Hi Sue! Yes, it's a wonderful place. And if you're talking about a drinking "happy hour"...they do serve wine, too :)

  4. It looks like a lovely, friendly place. The chairs are unusual, I've never seen chair backs like those.

    1. Hi River...yes it's lovely and friendly. It's more fun than work a lot of the time! Those chairs are HEAVY. I'll take a few more photos for you, and close ups, too.

  6. You know what they say...if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life! How wonderful that you've found that outside of your writing. And I'm so envious of the ceramic chickens! WAAAHHH! I want one---or two, or three---of my very own. I visited the website but didn't see those amazing chickens. They are so amazing, I probably can't afford them. lol

    1. Lisa, you are so cute and funny! Your comments made me laugh. I can just hear your "WAAAHHH!" Those chickens really aren't very expensive. You'd be surprised, I bet! And I think I emailed you about them...I shouldn't have said they're ceramic...they're more "concrete-like." And can be used as an outdoor décor, too...maybe??

    1. Hi Linda, no the St. Charles store was Thistle & Clover..and I just found out they are going out of business. I'm so sad for them. Long story....

  8. This looks like such a lovely place to work! The only thing missing is a book shelf, maybe with used books for people to peruse and read while they have tea. I'm thinking either for solo patrons or folks waiting for the rest of their party to arrive...

    1. Hi Trish! That's a great idea...maybe I could leave a few copies of my memoir lying around....Ha ha!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
