This tea cosy photo arrived by email from Kim (hello Kim) last week and is so joyous, so beautiful, so spirit lifting that One just had to show it off here.
Now the tea cosies you make and their portraits you send are all loved and appreciated the same. Like children, there are no favourites.
It is just that this one is showing off that little bit extra, enough to warrant a special outing here. She is exuberant. Yep. That is the word. EXUBERANT.
These tea cosies are made from New Zealand flax by a New Zealander basket weaver, Susan Barratt, in New Zealand.
One of the loveliest and most unexpected things about having a book is the people you meet.
The people who want to say hello and well done and then 'look what I do'.
Annie's Books on Peregian, introduced us. We chatted away for about half an hour in the store and then yesterday these photos came.
These flax cosies are about to go on exhibition in - where are they going on exhibition Susan?
All hail the tea cosy and the people who love them. Bouquets to you all.
