Tea and Biscuits.


Tea and Biscuits.

Does grandma love biscuits more than her tea?
I ponder this thought, and then it occurred to me.
If she loves biscuits more than her tea,
could she in fact, love them more than me?

The crunchy topping, the creamy inside,
a chocolaty taste you can’t deny.
Heaven in a moment some would say,
or pretty close to it in a round about way.

Begin compared to a biscuit, isn’t that bad.
At least if it’s a good one, and not some cheap nasty brand.
Individually wrapped and sealed with love,
not tasting all lumpy like a clump of mud.

So as I weigh up the pluses and minus of sorts,
I came to the conclusion, after much thought.
She couldn’t possibly love biscuits more than me,
as she gave me the last one at afternoon tea.


My grandma loved Delta Cream biscuits.
Many a special moment was shared over a cup of tea and a few.
So here are my crocheted versions...
I really had to make them...
To add to my little shop display...
As I don't think the real deal would have worked...
I think they could have been eaten up very quickly if left out...
I don't think it is quite crossing over to the world of begin to twee...
as I see it more a little prop extra...and not total Nanna crazy...
I do hope you all like them...
I could have just found my new favorite crocheting pastime...
Seeing as though I really need to buy a few packets to make sure I making them look authentic...

The biccies are great...thought they were real at first glance!(I think I am the only person i know that doesn't like delta creams).
I would love a copy of that little Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I am working on a tea party inspired installation and both the biccies and book would be great props.

They are sensational. My Mum makes knitted ones and I have them at my kinder in the home corner along with an old china dinner set!

You fooled me! I didn't even realize they weren't real until the last close up photo. LOL!

OMG Michelle I had no idea they weren't real until I got that far into the post and then had another good look!!!

They sure look good enough to eat! But you better get a couple of packs for comparison. Enjoy
