Tea cosy

My tea cosy arrived from Australia this week.  It is beautifully sewn and I love everything about it. I had to have one when I discovered Claire's blog Sweet Birdy Love.  Her colourful and cheerful pictures and words always brightens my day and she is a very talented lady.

Embroidered appliqué.

I love this quote and the embroidery.

The front and back are equally gorgeous.  Thank you Claire.

Do visit Claire's blog, you'll be glad you did.

  1. I was thinking about you just the other day and came and visited and didn't leave a comment (sorry =/) and, THEN, was thinking of you some more - et voila! A post from you...=]

    and with an adorable handmade tea cozy! I love them! I often wonder, though, how many I's too bad that I don't need hundreds and hundreds.

    I see so many pleasant and crafty things that you're up to and I so admire it! I think the afghan for your daughter looks wonderfully cozy and cheery and the cake stand is very clever and cute, indeed!

    Thanks for sharing your domestic cheeriness! =]


  2. Hey Liz, I was just thinking about you this morning and wondering if the postman had been visiting you.......

    Glad to see the cosy has arrived safely.
    Your new teapot is lovely I hope the cosy fits and you enjoy many cuppas with friends.

    It's a lovely clear morning here, blue sky and sunshine. A good start to the new week.

    Hope the weather has warmed up a little over there, have a great week.

  4. Your t-cozy is so pretty! I just LOVE all the things that Claire makes. I ordered a tea cozy several months back and did a post on it. Wish she lived near me, so I could buy things from her more often!

  5. Oh my this is beautiful! I love tea cozies! I am off to take a peek. xoxox Happy Thursday to you. xo
