I don't have a new picture of this place but this is my FAVORITE local shop, Georgina's. I get almost all of my tea cups from this here, along with other bits and baubles, and I love the owner and her staff. If I'm having a bit of a hectic chaotic day I enjoy being able to drive down every once in a while and just enjoy sifting through all the little intriguing things I can find.

Desserts! How I have not put myself into a sugar coma is well beyond me but I have happily enjoyed a great deal. With afternoon tea I have been able to try out a bit more then I before I had joined in the fashion - prior to the frills I wear I hadn't even thought of afternoon tea and the like - and so I am grateful I have had the chance. These are just a few of my favorite indulgences that I've had before, only one prior to the fashion, but they are indeed my favorites.
One thing to note that I will note as many times until all the rest of humanity who assumes such a thing will learn, scones are not on the list as they are NOT a dessert. That said, the rest of these delightful desserts are things I have made or tried to make with relative success on most of them, pot au crème is a bit difficult to me and crème brulee is tough without a torch.
What are some of your favorite desserts?

Themed meets are indeed some of my favorite meet ups styles, I like being able to pull inspiration from it as well as see all the wonderful ideas that people have. There is much to enjoy about themed meets in my opinion. For this prompt I tried to list a few that I think would be neat to host a theme around that I would hope to host at some point soon but are in no way what they would be called.
<3 Garden Fairy Meet - If one enjoys to frolic in the garden and enjoying the world around them why not host a meet for something such as that and have it be geared towards fairy aesthetics? Depending on the location activities like flower pressing could be done.
<3 Victorian Mourning Meet for around Halloween - The only thing I'd want to have done more then have a bunch of fabulous frilly friends dressed in coordinates inspired by Victorian era mourning attire would to also have all the bells and whistles of what would be done at a séance at that time. (This is in the works for this year)
<3 Fairytale Meet - Within this fashion we have had a plethora of Alice in Wonderland themed meets - of which I honestly adore - but it would be really neat to have one based on fairytales. People could pick out their favorite ones or obscure ones and make a coord based around them.
<3 Dream Dress Meet - It would be ever so lovely to see everyone rocking out whichever dream dress they have been able to acquire. If they don't have a particular dress but some other garment it would be equally as nice to have a coord based around that.
<3 Gallery Art Meet - Going to an art gallery? Why not have everyone make a coord based around a favorite piece or one they find intriguing? After touring through it would be neat to find a nice area for photos and then post them to the event with their match.
<3 Pirate Meet - What would be really neat would be to get EVERYONE to wear a pirate themed coord. It's not always that one could get that to happen but it would be so cool and also very badass.
<3 Dessert Meet - People would not only have to coordinate based around a specific dessert but it would be a potluck event and would have to bring it to share.
<3 Favorite Event Meet - Dress in one of the coordinates from your favorite event. If you can't do exact try to make it as close as possible. It's just nice to reflect on the favs.
<3 Four Seasons - Everyone can pick a season and create a whole look around it. The great thing about this is that you don't need to do it based around any particular date even though it does involve seasons.
<3 Book Inspired Meet - Not fairytales but other fictional stories that could be anything from Harry Potter (though I would love to have just a Harry Potter meet all on it's own) to something more serious like Night Film (check that out if you've never heard of it.
<3 Constellations Meet - It would be fun to put all those constellation coordinates I've made in the past to use. It would also be neat to go to a conservatory in them with a bunch of friends doing the same thing. To keep from doubles (unless you have someone be Gemini as a group) people could sign up and it could be more then just the regular zodiac constellations, of course.
That is the long and short of it, I tried to get creative and tried to hit on the ones I would like to do that I haven't brushed on too much of (like the cloning meet or rose meet ideas). Do you have any themes you would like to do?
It's been a long few days for me, I've been sort of sick from a bit of a migraine so I'm off to bed now, I hope everyone is doing well and I'm going to put the tea pot away now that I've scrubbed out that and the tea cup. Cheers! XOXO
