My Creative Space

The thing I love about the  My Creative Space meme is that I feel like it keeps me motivated, it's like a game of show and tell and I do often think, I need to make something for My Creative Space- but not in a pressured way at all- just in a way to feel part of this little thing Kirsty has going on, and I love seeing what everyone esle has made too. So, in case I have never said so, thanks Kirsty.
As I couldn't wait to show Leonie her pincushion, which I was planning on revealing for My Creative Space.  I think I was also on the same wavelength as Kate, as she posted this post  at the same time as I had just put my crocheting down after completing my new cozy.

We have just resumed drinking  tea from a teapot- and I really missed the ritual of making a pot. We take our tea seriously and have a dedicated shelf for it... as you just never know what you may feel like. ( yes 10  types of tea are shown here... writing this I worry we may look a bit odd...)

It is a big part of my creative space because when I get stuck or need to stop and think about the logical way of doing something- I have a cup of tea, ponder, and all is right with the world again.
 For more Creative Spaces head over to Kirstys place.

  2. Nothing like a cuppa to cure your ills... I'm thinking of switching back to the teapot instead of teabag. I might need to go in search of the perfect vintage teapot.

  3. There must be an English bone in your body. The Mr reckons a cup of tea makes EVERYTHING better. (But you wouldn't catch him prancing about with that "poncy herbal stuff"!). Fab cosy, Mrs.

  6. I always use a teapot for myself every morning, I figure, I am special enough to have special tea in a teapot.
    sadly, no tea cozy here, but yes, we have alot of different teas aswell, so nothing odd about your shelf, LOVE it!!
    as Cam & Tania said, tea does make EVERYTHING better :)

  8. I've always wanted to be a tea drinker but I've never managed to get past my love of coffee. There's something so nostalgically romantic about tea drinking.

    I agree about My Creative Space. I find it really motivating too.

  9. Maybe if they invent tea that has triple strength caffeine I could be converted- as teapots and tea cups are so more soft and romantic than coffe cups displayed on a shelf !

  10. Lovely Cosy. I've been looking at teapots lately as I've become quite addicted to tea. I've been drinking this stuff that's all little rolled up leaves and flowers that uncurl in the hot water. I must also get onto you about a friend for Valentino for littlest boys birthday......happy days to you!

  13. A pot of tea represents so much more for me.

    Comfort, cosy, childhood, warmth, caring...

    Quite the magic potion really.

  14. I love that cosy and My Creative Space day (for the motivation and the chance to peek into creative spaces all love the world) and a good cuppa. We have so much in common!
    It looks like the new camera is getting a good work out. Is it your favourite possession yet? Mine is, I’d be so lost without it.

  17. Nothing odd there, I love tea in our house. I like the ritual involved in making a good pot of tea. Sometimes I even get to drink the whole lot while it is still hot!

  18. Oh, Cath...your cozy makes me wish I was a tea drinker! Sadly, I've never gotten the hang of hot drinks. And I agree about My Creative Space...it keeps me thinking and motivated. Yay for Kirsty!

  19. Wow, love that! I'm a pretty big tea drinker as well, but since I'm Chinese, I don't venture far beyond green and black loose leaf teas.

  20. LOVE you tea cozy! Did you make up the pattern? I'm such a coffee drinker but after reading the comments on my post and here on yours I might just have to give the old pot a go and see what happens.
    Have a fab weekend Ms CC. X
