Every once and a while a busy author needs to take a little time for tea. My plate has been full while promoting my new release with my blog tour and book signings for, Colonial Courtships. I've also written a new book proposal, studying my craft, and researching. Oh, and actually writing. I try to fit that in when I can!
On Saturday, my Mom treated me and her best friend, Denise, to a tea party to celebrate both of our November birthdays (mine's coming up on Friday). We took a scenic drive to the quaint western Maine town of Limerick and arrived at The Clipper Merchant Tea House, an 1830 Gothic Victorian home on the register of national historical places. The Clipper Merchant is one of the country's top ten tea houses, and number one in New England. It's been featured in many magazines and our visit told us why.
As we entered, everything was "tea". The waitresses were bustling around
Each room has a theme, and we were seated in the "Hawthorne Room", named for 19th century author Nathaniel Hawthorne.
