Every kitchen should have a little kitsch, and I like mine in my tea cosies. TPRC made me this adorable cupcake tea cosy, which makes me laugh every time I look at it. Tres kitsch perfecte!

The next cosy made for me by the generous thepunkrockinchick. This is crochetroo's scalloped tea cosy pattern (available at her etsy store). I made myself that green one for Christmas last year, but looking at TPRC's, I realize I did the top a little wrong. So, I may make myself another one in red, green, and white for Christmas this year. I've been wanting a multi-colored scalloped one, but I don't have colors in my stash that looked good together, so I was delighted to receive this beautiful one. It is so bright and cheery; it will definitely lift my spirits if this winter gives us some cold and dreary days.

Over the next several posts, I am going to publish photos of four beautiful tea cosies sent to me by my tea-loving friend, thepunkrockinchick. I love them all, and since they run the gamut from beautiful and classy to kitschy, I will always be able to find a tea cosy to suit my mood. So thank you again, TPRC! The parlor is all gussied up with this lovely flower button garden. No garden is complete without a cat, which you can see lounging behind the teapot. And this cat has a flower name, Daisy, so it's a perfect combination.
