townshend's teahouse

it was rainy today. i don't mind, that's one of the reasons i love Portland. plus, i had my silver Doc Martens on so the puddles weren't at all an obstacle.

it's on these rainy days that i love going into tea shops. tea is the cure-all for any kind of weather blues. or any kind of blues for that matter. i'm not saying it will snap you out of a deep depression, but drinking tea is the one thing i know will cheer me up. even if it's just a little bit. so, naturally, i'm a sucker for tea houses. living down the street from one gives a girl meaning to her life. and Townshend's Teahouse is a godsend. it really is. the art they have in there is amazing. there are people knitting and studying, furiously debating, and canoodling on the couches. sometimes i go in there and knit or read...but people watching is almost the most enjoyable thing to do there. besides sipping on a nice, fresh cup of tea. of course.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
