{pretty presentation + great conversation}

I was in for a real treat this afternoon as I headed to a Vancouver area blogger get-together at the Little White House Salon Café in quaint Fort Langley BC:


Here’s the outside of the Little White House, a charming converted old farmhouse which houses a café, and a shop that sells everything from furniture, to jewelry, to linens:




And here is the inside of the Salon Cafe:



The Little White House is really a delight, but meeting up with blogger friends and mentors is even more delightful!! I felt honored to spend the afternoon with such a talented group. I’ve learned so much from my blogworld friends, it was so great to actually meet some of them face to face.

We enjoyed the High Tea, which includes scrumptious sweet petits. We started eating without thinking to take a picture of the pretty food (we must have been hungry!), so here are a couple of pics from the website:

 

 

We all loved the tension between all the glitter and shine from the mirrors and chandeliers against the original rough farmhouse wood panels:


Some photos from inside the shop:


 

 

Loved these pillows!


Thank you to all the lovely ladies who made it out today, and thank you most of all to Victoria from DesignTies for all your preparations and for making the get-together happen!! Let's hope for many more :)

I had fun meeting everyone also. I wish we were able to hang out longer. I wish I had taken more photos! I might have to " borrow" some of yours! Can't wait for the next get together.

Borrow away Barbara!! I was thinking to borrow from you guys cause my pics are so dark! I wish we could have shopped in Fort Langley all day, we definately have to do it again.
So crazy how many things we have in common! Yay Surrey, lol!! It's such a small world :)

Great photos Nancy! I actually did have my camera but it was buried in the depths of my purse the whole time! I may "borrow" a few photos as well! If you don't mind.
It was wonderful to meet you! You have a beautiful blog.

OMG what a beautiful cafe!! I don't know whats prettier, the exterior or the interior?

Looks like you girls had a lot of fun, and the sweet petits looks so yummy.

Nancy,

Great time had by all I can see. What a wonderful spot to gather with blogger friens, including Maria, who has been so supportive!
