My New "Mrs. Beaver" Tea Cozy!


Around Christmas time this winter, I wrote my precious friend (and "blog daughter") that I really really wanted desperately needed a knitted tea cozy.

She knows how I loved the tea cozy Mrs. Beaver used in the film version of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.  Heather had a tea cozy in her Etsy shop but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.  So she did some research and we talked color scheme and all... and this is what she came up with.

Isn't it adorable?  Mrs. Beaver would indeed love it, too.  It will keep my tea nice and hot for that second cup (and third).

I have a few pieces of Heather's beautiful felt creations in my Study, gifted on important days like my birthday or events such as attending a historical reenactment at the same time. 

But I must admit, the "Mrs. Beaver" tea cozy is my favorite of all.  Heather made it to fit my 6 Cup teapots but it also fits my 4 cup yellow teapot nicely.

*Heather's blog with a link to her Etsy shop is... here.  One glance and you will see why we are friends.  ;)

Hi Brenda,
I think that tea cozy is so cute!
I just love your blog and I read every posting on Heather's blog as well. I have the feeling that if we all met in real life, we would be "kindred spirits". I enjoy everything that you both write.
Blessings,
Marie

Adorable! And those cozies really work well, too! Enjoy your tea!

Yes, I see why you are friends! Like-minded for sure. Say, I can not get to her shop because the link takes me to a whacky advertisement page. Are you able to get to her shop?
