T 4 2 - tuesday ...oops a little late.

Seems that it is now Wednesday, how did that happen?
So what do I have to show you today for T42.
Well this morning I was given a couple of lovely matching teapots from my dear gran, as well as some cosies she no longer needs.

Oops, it appears as though my collection has grown a little bit more!!

And how cute is this elephant tea cozy.
Hot orange and brown - oh so retro. I love it.
And this adorable little checkered tea cozy...
Thanks Gran. She knows that I will take good care of these.

I found my old blanket

Many years ago my gran taught me how to crochet. This skill was buried under the pile of day to day life for many years and I have only recently begun to take up the craft again. Now all those years ago this is what I made - I had actually forgotten all about it and then while searching in my old trunk there it was, sitting in the bottom. I would have been about 12 I think, when I made this - I can't believe it myself!! I have fallen in love with it all over again.

But wait, there is more. While digging around in that old trunk I found this wonderful knitted blanket. It was made and given to me by my husbands Nan not long before she passed away. I think it is time to give it an airing and so will leave it out on display on the couch .

Yay , for forgotten treasures.

Cotton Face Scrubbies

It is great to have a variety of items for markets, and with my next one being for mothers day I have made up some crochet cotton face scrubbies.
I use these all the time - they are great to hang in the shower and then just rub a little soap onto them to clean your face. Also great for make-up removal - then just pop them into the washing machine.
Nice and gentle on your skin , 100% cotton, Eco-friendly...

Don't forget to enter my giveaway, details below.

t 4 2 - tuesday

I am so pleased with myself as last week I tackled the massive task of dusting and rearranging all my teapots, and cleaning down the pelmets that they sit on. I made myself a deal a while back that I would not buy any more teapots unless I got rid of one - due to lack of space!! Well I cheated a little and bought some more recently and with a little rearranging managed to squeeze them in.....shhhhhhh.

So here is one of my latest additions from Teapottery

Quick Kaz Cooke Quote

Today I am starting the first of many "Quick Kaz Cooke Quotes".
Let me explain . I have this little book. It is called "the little book of crap" and the intro to it reads as follows..........

Welcome to the the little book of crap. Culled from the thoughts of idiots and poncy wankers everywhere, these marvellous quotes and thoughts will not help you at all in your day-to-day life. No, they are simply crap, compiled meticulously from the cream of the crap, worldwide. The book was written by the well known craponagist, and custard wrestling commentator Kaz Cook and her colleague, the obscure medieval scholar and furry trout breeder, Simon Weaselpantz. As Shakespeare once said, "I only ever read books smaller than my own codpiece". Thankyou and Enjoy........

So the little book of crap has pages and pages of crap that I am going to share with page at a time. Because somedays there is just nothing to blog about!!!

Quote 1.
Be not estranged from your booty, lest you need to shake it.

And so it appears that when I take a photo with the web cam it comes out that is crap.

T 4 2 - tuesday

One of my favourite teapot makers is Swineside Teapottery England, Established in 1978.
You can read all about them on their website and browse through the wonderfully zany teapots they create.
I am lucky enough to have a few of their teapots in my collection and have recently purchase a few more. I could show you them all today but then what would you have to look forward to next week.
So for today I present to you the Woodworkers Bench Teapot.

complete with a saw handle
little workers tools
and how cute is that rocking horse

My project now is to create a better display cabinet/shelves/house!!!! to put my new additions in.
