Etsy Crush: Cosy up

Oh bleurrgh and achoo. My head feels like it’s been stuffed with cotton wool and every time I try to look to the left, my forehead starts throbbing and I give up. I have deduced that I have a cold.

I have also deduced that this is my punishment for eating a staple diet of mince pies and cranberryjellyspreadoneverything for the last month… (I stand by my decision. Totally worth it.)

Some turn to Lemsip, others turn to re-runs of ER… and I (Poppy) turn to tea when I’m feeling a bit coldy. Not just a chuck-it-in-a-mug tea though, but proper Tea-In-a-Pot-Tea…such a lovely ritual. If you are also a Tea-In-a-Pot-Tea lover, (hello!) then I suspect you already have a tea cosy. It’s probably a bit worn and a bit stained but no doubt full of memories and stories. Tea cosies have ears you see, so just imagine all things they’ve heard you nattering about over a brew.. *Ponders* (Important – they don’t have mouths so don’t worry; your secrets are safe.)

The above tea cosy is hand knitted by the very clever Alice of The Sequinned Sheep. Alice and her sister Florence set up The Sequinned Sheep to so they could immerse themselves in their love of crafts and bring their gorgeous handmade pretties to you and me. Pop along to their Etsy shop to see all the lovely bits and pieces the clever ladies have conjured up.

They have kindly given me the above super duper lovely hand knitted tea cosy to give away to one of my lucky readers, so if you’d like to win it, please see below!

In the meantime, drink tea, stay warm and stay cosy.
