Time for tea giveaway

Are you a tea drinker? Do you fancy a cuppa? 


Just because the sun is shining and because it's Bank holiday Monday here in England (and for other reasons - see below), I fancied having a little give away of the tea kind.


You see, this is how the story begins.... when I was in Aldi supermarket about a month ago I noticed this blue and pink with white polka dotted tea cosy reduced to 99p and even though I am starting to get a little bit bored with this colour combination I felt compelled to buy it and decorate it with doilies and stitches. Over the last couple of weeks I've indulged myself here and there and then last night I completed it.


All along I have been wracking my brains thinking about who to give this too? I ended up going round in circles as I seem to have knitted or crocheted tea cosies for most of my family and some friends. Also, in the back of my mind was this little niggly thought about what Andy had once said, not in a nasty way, please don't get me wrong, it was just that once he said to me that not every one likes that particular style. I think he is right, it's not for everyone and maybe he was a little clouded by firstly seeing it from a male perspective and secondly his love of mid-century design and most things ORANGE! ha ha

Quote from Alice in Wonderland, inspired by my sweet girly of course
Then I had an eureka moment, how about I give it away to someone who hasn't got a tea cosy and likes what I have done to this one? 


My blog is of course the perfect platform to say hey you there, yes you there, like me with the crazy tea drinking habits, would you like to keep your teapot cosy? 


So, go on then, enter the give away if this is your sort of cuppa, just follow me and pop a comment on this post. I'm happy to send anywhere in the world and will of course include some form of tea, like the empty earl grey box above that I used as a prop for this photo.x

Good luck and thanks for stopping

I will keep this give away open till 31st May 2013 when I will announce the randomly chosen winner x

  1. Penny it's beautiful! So pretty and you jazzed it up fantastically. Martin is exactly the same as Andy and raises his eyebrows at most of what I like - but then I look askance at some of his taste too. Horses for courses, eh!

    I am not going to enter your giveaway because I rarely drink tea (other than herbal) and don't think we even have a teapot. But I bet there will be plenty of takers for your cozy.

    Hope you are enjoying our fabby fab weather today. :)

  2. Oh Penny I absolutely love your tea cosy. I've been meaning to make a cosy for months now but I never seem to get around to it. Now that my kids are getting to adore their cuppas when they come home from school, we make a lot more in the house then we used to so your gorgeous cosy would be just perfect to keep out poor nippy little teapot warm!

  11. That is seriously the most perfectly beautiful tea cosy I have ever seen. I love a cuppa and nothing pleases me more than making a pot of tea for visitors to enjoy (with cake of some kind too) over a chat and some knitting or crocheting. I love your makes. x

  13. This is so beautiful! I would love to be entered into the draw please :-) I don't have a tea cosy - in fact I don't actually have a tea pot, but if I won it would be the perfect excuse to buy one!
    You can't go wrong with a lovely cuppa and a biscuit :-)
