Crumpets for you, crumpets for me

When we first transplanted ourselves in the Pacific NW, we engaged in frequent trips to the neighboring metro of Seattle, and, by frequent, we mean once a month for the first 6 months of our move. Often, it was, like many other days, a random drive that had gone too far; other times (and pre-Portland IKEA), it was a premeditated venture to grab a shelf or two at the Renton IKEA. And always between running our target errand and driving back home, we ended up at The Crumpet Shop (1503 1st Ave, b/t Pike & Pine in Pike's Market) to nibble on ricotta, honey, and almond topped crumpets and to sip tea blends. What a rare treat.

It's been a while since we've made it up north, but a gift from a dear friend recently made me think of tea parties, crumpets, and the random treats life brings, Anglo-French or not.
