While I have a break from Tea Cosies...

These are two of three "T Bags" I've made for a great new design shop in Launceston, Tasmania, called Cocoon (www.cocoonlaunceston.com.au), and the owner, Suzanne Wiltshire, is a mad keen tea addict like me...so I wanted to make these bags about tea, with a swashbuckling and die-hard approach! Hence the skulls (inspired by my Ravenswood Primary School teaparty, see previous posts below), and crossed teaspoons. I had a lot of fun making these...it's a really good idea to make fun, silly stuff in the middle of all the 'serious' work one does, to stop oneself going crazy under all the pressure! Voila! I took the photos too, and have been having more fun customising them to look more moody and 'designy'. Ha haaaaarrr, Polly want a cup of tea??

Ooo wanty!! I walked past Cocoon the other day but didn't have time to go in, well that was my excuse as I could see that I'd want to spend LOTS there. Those bags are too cool, I'm glad you found your de-stress outlet!!

How cool! Death by tea, lovely! Actually, that is how I feel after drinking tea, which is why I don't! But I still love teapots *sigh*.
