My New Favourite Place :)


I thought I would show you all my new favourite place, while we were away in Shropshire for Mr D's 40th, we went on a trip to Ironbridge. This is a fabulous little village, go here to read more about it.



But really, I’m not sure why I’m telling you about that when this is what you really want to see!!


Welcome to Queenies.  Home of the vintage tea party, complete with the cutest mismatched vintage china & delicious cupcakes. 


How excited was I you may ask. Well Quite Excited :)



Mr D couldn’t quite work it out…how come we ended up here  when this was supposed to be his Birthday treat?!


Well I’m telling you, once I had peered through that window & spied the cute little waitresses all dressed up in their vintage outfits, it would be a cold day in Hell before you would be able to drag me past without going in.


I mean, really how can you not love these knitted tea cosies?




And look at the wedding cakes!! All those decorations are hand crafted, I know this as I watched the wee lass sitting making purple flowers

  Go here to check out their website, although I have to say it doesn't do them justice. This place is a must visit if you are ever in the area!

Well I have to go get ready for more 4oth celebrations..out with MIL then on to a pub where a few close friends are meeting us..



  1. What a darling little place!

  2. oooo, YUM, with a capital Y.U.M.!

  3. Look at those adorable cupcakes! I have to visit there!

  4. Thanks for your nice comment on the photos!!! Yours are so great and make me want to visit there, esp that little cafe!!

  5. how cute! this looks like so much fun! i love quaint little places like this!

  6. Ironbridge is on my list of 'to visits'! That teashop sounds a lot like one that just opened in Middlesbrough, it's called the 'Olde Young Teahouse' and the owner has a wall of shelf filled with different leaf teas that you can pick up and sniff the tea and see which you want, she makes fresh cakes everyday and they sound delicious (but sadly, not dairy free for me to enjoy!) really unusual combinations! The tearoom is set out like someones front room, and there is a vintage record player and bits of furniture, she even has a stack of books and games for you to choose while you enjoy your tea! It's like a little haven, you take a step off the highstreet and you settle down and feel like you could stay all day! It's really lovely!

  7. aww what a lovely place! i wish i could visit! love how vintage and pretty it is ♥♥♥
