$400 Tea Cosy!!

You may have already seen this, but I just stumbled across this article and had to post it. This is one of the few things I don’t like about America–we don’t do tea cosies!! I would love to see and/or participate in a tea cosy competition, but  I’ve never heard of one here. The winning cosy is fantastic!

$400 Tea Cosy wins Top Prize.
