It doesn't get any better than this in tea cozy land.  There's a teapot in there somewhere, ha ha.Hope your week is the coziest ever!

  3. Wow...that is quite the tea cozy! I had a really hard time trying to find the tea pot under all of the frill! I'm very impressed with your very splendidly outfitted teapot. I'm sure Carmen Miranda would be very jealous ;)

  4. Great tea cosy. My sister-in-law is a great tea cosy maker too. I have included some of her masterpieces in this post . http://helsieshappenings.blogspot.com/2010/01/last-day-of-laziness.html
    I know she'll just love your Carmen Miranda post.
    So glad I found your lovely blog. I'll be back.
    Cheers

  5. Well now Susan, the Queen just might drop by - the Queen of the Tea Cosies - C'est MOI. (not the shy and retiring type you'll note)

    So anyway Toni - the feathers look FABULOUS. And the grapes are completely over the top - which is of course perfect Carmen.

    I lover her. I love her a lot.

  11. Oshkoshbgosh, that's some teapot,
    Mum. That lemon looks....real. I think
    we need another picture of the other
    side so's we can view the rest of the
    fruit.
    Do they have quail in South
    America? This requires more consideration.
    love,
    me.^)
