Vintage Tea Rooms at the Norfolk Show!x

Hello all! 
The Country Rose and myself explored the Norfolk Show on Thursday and thought we could share bits of our day with you! There were so many lovely stall holders, but one in particular that we want to share with you is...
These people were so lovely! They run a traveling vintage tea room  It all started when the woman in charge, a lovely bubbly lady, was talking about how she hated coffee with a strong passion and want the traditional tea back! Their aim is to bring Tea Drinking back into England!!

Their bubbly team were so sweet! They were really welcoming and all gorgeous! They rock the vintage style very well, as their uniforms are pretty vintage clothes, matched with bright lipsticks!!

 Here is the lovely team! Along with myself and The CountryRose! 

 We took lots of photos so we could show you a tour around their wonderful set up!! They were amazing and let us go behind the scenes as well!! They even sang us a lovely song , Unfortunately another team member has the recording but i will hope to have it on here soon!

Lets take a look at all the cute little touches! If you are a follower of this blog and have been for a while you will know i love Cute little Touches.
Look at all the different type of tea, Really shows that tea is far from boring.

They know that no one likes waiting for their tea so they send round vintage magazines and  the staff have chit-chats with the customers. Its such a personal experience too, that we really reccomend!

The gorgeous and finely detailed  vintage crockery.


 Then there is the overall picture , I must say the interior is gorgeous and is one to add to my article about 1940's kitchens! 

Yum to those cakes!
Wow!! it is just too cute!!

 They have worked so hard towards this and I am so glad that they got this award, they all really deserve it! It was such a lovely atmosphere and if any of you are reading right now! You were all soo lovely , thank you so much for a wonderful time!

You can follow them on Twitter (We do!) :
And LIKE them on Facebook:

Here is their website. For more pictures and information from them click here! It is on my favorites bar.
A quote taken from this website is: "Step back in time for a cup of the best! Tea Vintage is a travelling tearoom with a 1940s style." 
Which we all here at Vintage Country Rose Back up completely!

They really do a great job at bringing back the vintage experience, the mood and atmosphere is so jolly with authentic music and surroundings all to match the 1940's vintage theme! But not only do they do tea but lovely cakes and biscuits and proper sandwiches all made with love and care. 
We love them , so if you ever are fortunate enough to see them around then why not go in? Have a cuppa and enjoy , or why not hire them yourself, maybe you have a wedding,festival, summer ball, a birthday or any other celebration! if so book them!

This is a gorgeous picture and fits in with this weeks blog due to the lovely, beautiful vintage fan. It has so much detail it is simply amazing, if only we actually needed them in Norfolk.

Right first of all lets start with the marvelous collections of brooches and badges we found there! They were so gorgeous,

Vintage Instruments

Hello readers,

Today I'm going to write a little bit about vintage instruments and the classical music that was played with them.

Vintage Acoustic Guitar V880N First of all, I'm going to start with one of my favourite instruments, the guitar. In early 1935, there was a guitar called "A martin 000-28" and is one of many pre-war guitars you can buy!

Secondly, an instrument maybe greater than the one before...  Ukelele's! In 1939 there was a ukelele called "Gibson EH- 185 Lap Steel." And some of these had aluminium head stock, these types are rare nowadays but still available to buy.

So now what? We've got the instruments, now what do we play? Well, examples include the celebration of Arnold Schoenberg's transcendence of tonality in chromatic post-tonal and twelve-tone works and Igor Stravinsky's move beyond metrical rhythm. These were all played in the early 20th century as classical vintage music.

 I hope you enjoyed this article,
