We called ourselves The "Daisies" because we were being driven!!!!
This is my original post from last fall --
We spent a week in September on Cape Cod.
Which is far away from the prairie of Kansas!
One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Sandwich
where Husband Jim
drove "The Daisies"
The Daises each got to pick something they wanted to see
And we all went along.
The First Daisy chose:
The Thornton Burgess Museum
A well-known long time writer of children's books.
Her children had adored them
I had read them but didn't realize it for I was a mere child.
An interesting museum
And a fascinating house.
The Second Daisy chose:
The Greenbriar Jam Kitchen
Making jams here since 1903 with fresh fruit and sugar and not much else in small batches.
Daisy Two would like to own a jam kitchen and she was as enthralled as I with this wonderful kitchen and the products it produced.
The Third Daisy (ME) chose:
The Dunbar Tea Room
A quaint and cozy tearoom.
What you would expect to find in New England
And who wouldn't love a tea room
which uses blue and white china!
Blue Willow to be exact!
The menu featured
A history of the house
A special tea
We each ordered
A pot of Earl Grey. Leaves, please. So we all had our personal strainer.
The cream (whipped cream not clotted) and jams on a plate to share.
But we each got our own curate of sandwiches, scones and sweets.
The scones were delicious especially slathered in cream and jam.
We eyed the offerings on the dessert table. The sponge cake looks very good!
Not a vignette but a picture
that hung in the ladies room.
A darling sign by the entrance to the tea room.
After lunch we three Daisies agreed that we wanted to go antiquing.
And we did!
I got a precious silver napkin ring engraved with not only a name but December 25, 1869!
And at the Antique Mall I found
I have one like it that I really don't know what to do with.
And after seeing this price tag, I'm thinking that I need to take it off
the back fence and find a more prominent place for it!
We Daisies enjoyed our day in Sandwich.
We have some lovely memories
of museums, and jam kitchens and teas and antiques.

I've never been to Cape Cod but so want to go out that way and spend some time. Love the Tea Room...thanks for sharing!
Something for everyone!...and I enjoyed it all!
This is a new one for me...we have a summer home on Cape Cod and will put this on my "to do" list this summer. Thanks for reporting this !
I have sold CD's in my shop of Andrea (? can't remember last name this morn) who played her harp at the Dunbar Tea Room. It is very restful and relaxing and I haven't had any lately so I will have to reorder.
It does look very English - even the ceiling height and wood.
I want to be a Daisy, too! Looks like a delightful escape. I haven't been to Cape Cod in a number of years. I's such a charming part of our country. Thanks for taking us along. Have a marvelous time in Italy. Cherry Kay
What a beautiful tea room! I looks like you! No wonder you enjoyed it. Very New England and beautiful blue and white.
What a charming tea room, Martha! You made a good choice. The sandwiches look yummy, and I'm in love with that toile tea cozy! I've always wanted to go to New England, but haven't gotten there yet. One of these days, I imagine I will.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

Cape Cod is a favorite destination for me, though it's not an easy one from TX. '-) Thanks for taking me along. I had a delightful time! ~ Sarah
