January Light: vintage

The Cup and Saucer Vintage Tearoom in De Courcy’s Arcade is one of my favourite cafés in Glasgow’s West End. It’s like walking into your Granny’s living room (well, it is if you’re my age). On this occasion, a foul, wet day last November, I was first in when it opened and grabbed this snap while it was empty. I’ve managed to capture both lamplight and firelight – perfect for Becky’s January Squares Challenge: words ending in light.

When the tearoom remained empty after a few minutes I was puzzled. My friend Esther is never late. Then I checked my diary. I was three hours early …

    What a wonderful place to eat. And drink tea. What did you do for those extra three hours? 🙂

    It does look like Granny has just stepped out for a moment. I’d say you were a bit light on for company on this day. 😃

    Oh, I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one who gets things wrong occasionally…..

    Oh I love this. It looks perfect for an escape from miserable day, especially with that heater on.

    Ha ha … I guess you lingered and just enjoyed the ambience. Love the photo though – cheers Hilary

    I’ve been in the arcade but did not know about that tearoom until now. Looks cosy.

    It definitely has the look of walking into Granny’s living room. And that looks like a radiator to keep the place warm, if I’m not mistaken.


I'd love to hear what you think!
