tea@elevensies greatest hits – the first 100 posts!


Can you freaking wrap your minds around this concept, folks — we’ve now got ONE HUNDRED posts under our belt! It’s not everyday a blog publishes it’s 100th so we decided to use the landmark post as a compilation of our best. If we were a band, this would be our first greatest hits album. Consider this a must-read list, a compilation of our most read posts and a few personal favorites. What you’ll find is quirky blend of delicious food, great design, books, and bling–a perfect sample platter of what you can expect to find at tea@elevensies.
