Tea parties have never been the same since I saw this at a very early the beards and the Victorian-ish dresses and hairdo's!!!

Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy won’t you please come home where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam
Come see Jimmy your uncle Jim Your auntie Jimmie and your cousin Jim
Come home Jimmy because you need a bath
And your grandpa Jimmy is still gone daft

Now there’s buffalo Jim and buffalo Jim
And Jim buffalo now didn’t you know
Jim Jim Jimmy its your last cigarette
But there’s buffalo piss and it’s all kind of wet
Jambo Jimmy you’d better hold your nose
All roads lead to roam with the buffaloes

Buffaloes used to say be proud of your name
Buffaloes used to say be what you are
Buffaloes used to say roam where you roam
Buffaloes used to say do what you do
If you remember you’re (unkown / a gnome / a Noam)
Buffaloland will be your home

Well you’ve gotta have a wash but you can’t clean your name You’re now called Jimmy you’ll be Jimmy just the same
The keys are in a bag in a chest by the door
One of Jimmy’s friends has taken the floor
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy won’t you please come home where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam
Dear old Jimmy you’ve forgotten you’re young but you can’t ignore the buffalo song

Lonesome crocheted tea cosy o' the Oyster Lease...

This photo is kindly provided by my elder sister Jennifer who, with her husband Ant and some other partners, share an Oyster Lease on Bruny Island, in Tasmania's Dentrecasteaux Channel. So this is the wee little cosy that keeps the aluminium teapot warm during tea breaks...isn't it gorgeous?!!

My sisters blog is, please visit her too if you have a minute?

**If anyone has any tea cosy pics they'd like to share, and/or stories too, please feel free to contact me and pass them on! I love haring and seeing cosy stories and examples!
