Okay, due to recent ramblings that this blog may be turning into a Harry Potter tribute blog (hem, hem), I shall post about something else. I’ve always had this little idea in the back of my mind that, if I were to ever start a business, I would open the following:
A tea house. It’d have some catchy name like Camille’s Gypsy Tea House. Have you ever been to the Mad Hatter’s Tea House in San Antonio? If yes, then okay, kind of like that. It needs to be Bohemian but not too much so. I’d want it to be a “cool” atmosphere, but not “too cool” so that if you don’t have on black converse sneakers and a discreet band name on your shirt, you’d still feel welcome. You know what I’m talking about.
I’d want it to be an inspiring place, like when you were there you’d want to pull out a journal and write or whip out a sketch book and draw. I’d want it to be a welcoming atmosphere, lively but peaceful. Oxymoron? I think not. I’d also want a backroom there where you could have little get-togethers like showers or brunches or random things like that. But it wouldn’t be just a girly place, no sirree Bob. And just because it’s a tea house does not mean that we wouldn’t serve coffee, mkay? Coffee indeed. Oh! And there would be awesome curtains on the windows. Like 1920’s paisley prints.
Oh, and we’d have not just normal plastic tables but a conglomeration of eclectic tables and really comfortable couches and lots of lamps.
Oh and one night we'd have to have like an open mic night so that people could come up and play their guitar or read their poetry or do an interpretive dance. Hmm, maybe not so much on the interpretive dance.
Anyone want to fund the invention of Camille’s Gypsy Tea House? Any takers? Free coffee for life?
P.S. This is what all the mugs would look like
