Tea cosy

Tea cosy

I found this tea cosy at a thriftstore, last weekend. I fell in love with it, the moment I laid my eyes on it.
When I was little, we always spent our summers at my grandfather's. He lived near the sea, so our vacations there were always a big blast! One of the things I cherish most about these vacations were the family breakfasts we had. We would walk into town early in the morning, to get croissants and rolls. Back at the house we would squeeze some fresh orangejuice, deck the table, and put the kettle on. The 2 things that never failed to be on the table were the newspaper (with the puzzle in progress) and the tea cosy.
I have been searching for a teacosy that would give me the same homy feel as the one at my grandfather's house.
And I believe I did....

  1. Don't worry! Sooner or later you'll get back to the beads. I shifted my crafting interests so many times, but I always came back to the beads. Atm, leather craft is my favorite.
