Hello! You may call me Elizabeth Tweed, also known as Madame Elizabeth. I love vintage style, tea, and British culture, though I live in the suburban wilds of America. I work in an office during the day, curl up with my partner, Mr. Tweed, and our cat TweedCat in the evenings, and spend my weekends doing theater, dancing, wandering about my little suburb, and drinking far too many pots of tea. I bake wonderful scones, speak almost-fluent French, and have a haphazard appreciation for beauty. My collection of red lipsticks is threatening to exceed its storage, but I paint my fingernails only sporadically. I am vast and contain multitudes.
“Why Tea Leaves and Tweed?” you might ask. Tea is a large part of my every day life. I drink tea throughout the day, and find it invigorating, warming, and comforting. I have a large collection of teas and teaware, and I like to make little delicious things to go with them. Of course, my love of vintage beauty means my tea cups all have red lip prints on them.
Tweed is because when I started this blog it was cold. Tweed to me is the epitome of carefree, bohemian, English country style, which is an ethos I like. I am drawn to cozy mysteries of the English countryside and vintage style, but I also love a good cocktail party when the mood takes me.
This is my place to share my lifestyle, such as it is. I hope you enjoy reading about it. You can also follow me on social media:
