Last week I visited a little stone cottage called the “Magiric Emporium”. It’s an amazing old cottage that has been restored and turned into a a lovely old world cafe’ serving lunchtime treats and Petit-fours. It’s run by two lovely ladies, regular mums who have seized the day and decided to live their dream. I admire their courage and love what they have created!
Every time I walk into a place like this I wonder what it would have been like to live in this era…I often joke that I’d probably be the ‘scullery maid’ rather than the ‘lady of the manor’. Sometimes when I look at how the world has sped ahead and lost so many lovely simple things of the past, I feel sad….but then I guess we wouldn’t have this wonderful opportunity to share our worlds like we do now!
THE COTTAGE IS FILLED WITH DECOR OF THE ERA- NEXT TIME I GO THEY SAID THE OLD CHASE LOUNGE THAT MATCHES THESE CHAIRS WILL BE RESTORED AND IN PLACE BY THE FIRE!
Even tho I embrace this new techno world we live in I still work at keeping some of those things from the past. I love my vintage tea cups, hand made quilts, crochet flowers and funky dishes! I’m think I’ll share some of those things with you on my next post! I have a little dream of one day creating a vintage/retro cafe and maybe even with room for a local co-op where people can share their wares or even home grown veges!! Random I know, but ‘who knows’ it doesn’t hurt to dream does it?
Well, hats off to these two mums who have grabbed hold their dream with two hands! Together they are re-creating a nostalgic little place in the country for us to meet our friends either for a delicious meal or just a coffee and divine home made desert or delicious Petit fours!
