As a tea lover, you probably know of the Brown Betty teapot. Have you ever heard of the Brown Bobby? It's a triangle-shaped donut that was popular in the mid 1920's. The donut-making machine was advertised in Popular Mechanics as a means to start a cottage industry. My neighbor has inherited one of the Brown Bobby machines from her mother and she enjoys sharing the donuts. Lucky us! We enjoy these tasty morsels from time to time.
A note about the toleware tray above. It's another treasure from a neighbor. I recently picked it up at our community's annual yard sale. The gorgeous teacup and saucer was sent by a friend who picked it up at an auction. It has become one of my favorites.
