Tea Time at the Diner.....

Maybe an unlikely spot for a cuppa tea - lots of Java no doubt - but quintessential British tea - maybe not so much!!

Another heading in my photo scavenger hunt is "time." I came across this beauty in one of the home decor shops on Mt. Pleasant. This shop always has the most amazing teapots on display. I want this one. It's a step back in time - route 66 and all that.  I have visions of the pot pouring out hash browns, eggs over easy and maybe some home made apple pie - forget the tea - pour me a slice of the 50's with some honky-tonk juke box music - bobby socks and saddle shoes.... actually I'll take a road trip right now, anywhere to a bit of history, wherever that may be.

Here's a funky tea cozy from Lynette Meek at Le Tissier Designs to go with the pot - she has lots more - take a minute to browse through Lynette's patterns here.

and even funkier knitted teacups. This is Wedgewood from Infiknit.

Now did someone say eggs?

These are knitted faberge eggs - not over easy!! and yes, each one has a knitted surprise inside. I have had periods of insanity...does that make me a genius....please say yes  :)

Have a surprising day!!
