Just because "I can share"

Pansy teacozie what a beautiful piece to be able to share today just because I can :o)
This beautiful pansy covered teacozie is such a lovely bright spring piece and to think I found it just sitting, waiting for me in a little op-shop. What a treasure and all that wonderful work, each flower & leave is added after the cozie was knitted and the flowers and leaves are knitted too. stunning!!!
It looks at home with my little pots on the back verandah, but is now bringing some spring to my kitchen.
This is my Wednesday

happy wednesday. We are just about to go to bed here on Tuesday night. I need to get my Wordless Wednesday up so that I can just post it in the morning. Hope all is well there. So glad you are having a beautiful Spring there. Seems so odd. Here we are going into FALL one of these days...

Very pretty colors!

Knitnerd said...

Wow! The pansies look like real and they almost fooled my eyes!
PS - I was wondering how come you have such beautiful pansies and daffodils in your backyard in August, and finally I realized you live in Australia! It's my first time visit your blog. very nice stuff you have!

Tammy said...

WOW...I thought they were the real thing at first!!!

What a little treasure you found in that tea cozy...it's gorgeous!! Love all the colours on it and it certainly does look at home there:-)

Alice said...

I once had a whole book of fantastic teapot cosies. I wonder what became of that book? Perhaps I gave it back to the rightful owner ... lol.

Leaf tea in a teapot - that's my cuppa!

Tea & Margaritas in My Garden said...

It`s so sweet! I`d like to try and make one ....less fancy for my experience, of course, this winter. I sa...sai..said the "winter " word. Ew.

I've just caught up on your last two posts. All the flowers, tea cosy included - just lovely! I love daffy-down-dillies, they are so cheerful. Yes, all the wattles, acacias, etc are out - my sinuses would tell me if I couldn't see for myself lol.

Lovely spring posts, Lee-Ann

Merle said...

Hi Lee-ann, Beautiful tea-cosy, so
very pretty. Your flowers are lovely too. I have a couple of freezias out, and some primulas and johnny-jump-ups
But yours seem to be ahead of mine.
Thank you for your kind words on my blog. The trip to Maryborough was nice
despite the reason, and being with family was comforting for us all.
Take care, Hugs, Merle.

Oh wow Lee-ann...I would swap one of my crinoline lady teacosies for your Pansies cosy! But if it was mine, I wouldn't part with it for all the proverbial in China! Look forward to seeing it next month. What a pity your flowers won't still be out by then...or will they? Better bring my camera just in case!

Jeanne said...

Thanks Lee Ann for your visit and kind words to my journal.
Blessings to you!
Keep well!
Love Jeanne

The tea cosy is beautiful, what a lot of work must have gone into it. I think it is wonderful that someone was prepared to put all the creative work into an every day household item. I love pansies too, they are such a cheerful flower.

Barb said...

Hello Lee-Ann,

Whew! Took me a while to get here. The response to the name game I hosted was a little overwhelming.

I laughed at myself. I thought your teacozie WAS just more flowers growing there until I read what you wrote. Lovely!

And thank you so much for stopping by A Chelsea Morning to play along. Wow! All the way from Australia.

Patty said...

I have enjoyed reading your blog. We seem to share many interests

Medieval Lady said...

So pretty. We've had lots of rain and my yard looks like a jungle. Thanks for sharing.

I'm from Nebraska, but I my best friend and I started doing tea-parties when we were in high-school. My mom started collecting tea-pots and tea things, and one of the things we added to our collection was a tea-cozy. They're so great! (But this one is way cute!!) :) My mom loves Pansies. Fun blog! (I've always wanted to go to Austrailia.)

Becky said...

This is adorable.
My girlfriend loves pansys and tea. She'd love this too.

Sigrun said...

That is the loveliest teacosy I have ever seen! I would like to have a cushion with pansies, but I can not get one.

Hello Pear tree cottage,
I have been looking into your wonderfull blog, and found this great one of the tea pot cover, this reminds me of my past living at home where my mum was allways knitting and sewing, she too has made tea cosy`s but more the plain type,
Thankyou for showing,
Tracey
