My Tea Cozy Came In The Mail Yesterday!

Here it is, on one of my tea pots. :) It is the Rosy Cozy. It is so funny, because this is the exact pattern I had started for her! But when I found out she liked 'bright colors', and 'whimsical', I changed what I was making for her. (Pictures of what I made later in a different post...) I just love this tea cozy! Thank you, Tammy! It is keeping my English Breakfast Tea (which Tammy also sent me, below...) warm. :)
Look at all the different teas she sent, too! Earl Grey, Lady Grey, English Breakfast, and Irish Breakfast. And a 'Tea for Two' kit: two tea balls, a honey stirrer, a little dish to set your tea balls on, and a book on how to make the perfect cup of tea, with some recipes and instructions on the perfect tea party inside. I love it! Also, some coffee singles, too.
And two dishcloths she made. These are too pretty to wash dishes with. I think I will use these to put under my tea pot. (Maybe that's what she intended them for..)
And look at the adorable cupcake!! I love this!! Inside were two Creme Savers candies. 'Cinnamon Bun', and 'Apple Pie Alamode'. I tried the cinnamon bun and gave the applie pie to the nine year old. I'd never tried these flavors yet, next time I go shopping I will have to see if they have these flavors. :)
Tammy sent three skeins of variegated yarn, too! How did she know I like variegated yarns lately? Hmmm... she must have been doing her research. ;) Thank you again, Tammy. I just love everything and can't wait to try out all the teas and to use the yarns you sent me, too! :)

Wow! What wonderful gifts, it all looks good Tina :)

Thanks, Mimi. I tried one of the tea bags; it tasted just like tea. ;p I can't drink too much of it though, it has caffeine.

Thanks for visiting. :)

I'm lovin' the cupcake. Let me know how you like the color spun sock yarn, I have 2 or 3 skeins in a greenish/blue mix, but haven't used it yet. And I love the dishcloths. I know what you mean by too pretty to use. I got these beautiful crocheted potholder in a swap and can't bare to use it as one. It is used as a center piece doily. :)
