Pink Saturday from the Lake District in England

Happy Pink Saturday!  Today I would like to share a beautiful little coffee shop/boutique in the Lake District in England that Ron and I visited. It was pinkfully delightful! Here I am having a mocha along with a scone and clotted cream and jam. Yes, I know I was supposed to have tea, but I couldn't resist the mocha. This village is Near Sawrey, Cumbria and is near the home of Beatrix Potter at Hilltop. We had such a wonderful time there.
This sign was out front and while it's not pink, it shares a great "pink idea" and I believe we are allowed some red for July 4th - a holiday NOT celebrated in England (wink)...

The inside of the shop was just filled to the brim with pinkness!
Aren't these wellies just adorable - good to wear if you are tromping around the lochs looking for Nessie! Lots of Cath Kidston things were in abundance everywhere.
The green dress above just totally reminds me of my oldest daughter, so I took these two photos especially for her.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed your visit to one of the most delicious little tea shops in all of England. If you would like to see more wonderful Pink Posts, drop over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound and check out other Pink Saturday posts.
I will be away for the weekend, so I will be making my Pink Saturday visits later in the week. Hope to see you all soon.

Hi Tricia,
What a wonderful shop! Love all the pinks. I would just love to see Beatrix Potter's house someday! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful July 4th weekend. Happy Pink Saturday!

I'd love to have coffee there too-especially with pastries! Love all the Cath Kidston and enamel pitchers. Hope you have a wonderful pink day and Happy, safe Fourth!!

Oh, my, Tricia - you lucky, lucky lady. You're in the apex of wonderful places to be. And a Cath Kidston-selling shop, to boot. I just rewatched Beatrix Potter about a week ago and saw the beautiful Lake Districts she helped save.
I'm happy for you to have gotten to be there. Have a safe, Happy 4th of July!

Hi Tricia,

I, too, am a homeschool mom...though my journey is about to end, at least for a time. My son finishes up high school later this month (we school through the summer). So, until the adoption we are pursuing goes through, both my students will have graduated, something I am struggling with a bit. I mean, homeschooling has been my life since 1999!!

Anyhow, I think it would be an incredible delight to have tea in a little English tearoom. And since I love Beatrix Potter, your visit to that area would be such fun for me.

Blessings to you,
Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

Tricia, no one will ever be able to accuse you of not getting with the program :-). I love the pink you found to share with us today. I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

Hello Tricia.

Definitely lots and lots and lots of pinks in that shop both on the outside and inside :-)

I wonder, why are those baskets hanging in the bush? part of the display?


Tricia said...

The bush is actually an ivy covered wall and the baskets are just part of the decor, I think.
